Active Learning Bike Safety Launched at Charter Oak School

Bike West Hartford volunteers partnered with Charter Oak International Academy public school to launch our Active Learning Stations for bike safety and free helmets on Friday May 10th 2024, funded by a grant from the CT Department of Transportation and the Capital Regional Council of Governments. “We appreciate partnering with Bike West Hartford to create a special learning event for our students, which will inspire them to be active and stay safe,” said Georgina Rivera, principal at Charter Oak International Academy, located in the Elmwood neighborhood.
