The rodeo is a free event. Interested parties can pre-register by going to the East Central Wisconsin Safe Routes to School website or visit us on our event page on Facebook. If there are any questions contact tdebruin@ecwrpc.org , atracy@ecwrpc.org  or Check the Safe Routes to School facebook page and check out the event.

According to Communities student Coral Neubauer, the event is fun, engaging, and informative.   “The Bike Rodeo is a wonderful event because we’re teaching bike safety to local families so that our children can feel and be safe and comfortable while biking. Our goal is to teach bike safety in a fun and engaging way, which is why we will have games, food, and prizes at the event.”

Communities is an interdisciplinary, project-based program at Oshkosh North High School offering students a unique way to learn English, social studies, and leadership content and skills through community engagement. Communities students investigate and engage in community problems through collaboration with businesses, organizations, and members of the community in an effort to provide authentic learning experiences while improving the local, national, and global community.
