In this presentation, Wade Frary, Director of Communications and Outreach for Project reCYCLE, will be covering the basics of the Dream Bike program, which gives students in Title-1 schools the opportunity to earn a bicycle through showing growth in the Three A's: Academics, Attendance, and Attitude. This year, Dream Bike is in 10 Title-1 schools throughout the Metro Area and is giving over 1,100 students the opportunity to earn their bike, helmet, bike lock, and safety lights. One of the schools served is Field Elementary in Littleton. We will be discussing the possibilities of partnering together for this program at Field.
