In March, Activate Buffalo County, as part of its Safe Routes to School grant, conducted parent surveys at several Buffalo County schools. The surveys focused on how many students walked or biked to school, how often they did so, and what barriers students faced, such as distance, traffic, weather, and more.
Kenwood Elementary returned the highest percentage of parent surveys, making them the winner of Activate Buffalo County’s contest to receive a Bike Blender built by the Bike Shed. The Bike Blender will be presented to the students at Kenwood’s Back to School Night on August 13. There will also be D.I.Y. yard games from Community Partners’ Community Building Block Party kits, as well as other fun activities and information.
