Keeping the “Ride a Bike for a Vet” Tradition Alive at Havelock Elementary

Keeping the “Ride a Bike for a Vet” Tradition Alive at Havelock Elementary

By: Kathy Barber, Principal

 

For the last three years Havelock Elementary School has hosted a wonderful event to honor our veterans for Veterans Day. The Ride a Bike for a Vet Parade is always one of the favorite events at the school.  This year the staff and students were sad to not be able to host this memorable celebration due to COVID 19 guidelines.  The staff and students were disappointed, but they decided to keep the tradition alive by dressing up in their favorite Red, White and Blue and making cards for Veterans during the week. Then on Wednesday November 11th the staff and students kept the tradition alive by decorating their bikes at home and riding them while proudly honoring our United States Veterans!  The school plans to have its annual Ride a Bike for a Vet Parade next year and can’t wait to share its success.  If you would like to donate a bike to a child for Christmas this year, please contact the school counselor at 252-444-5106.
