Shortly before the Pedal for Hope team’s main entourage arrives, typically students who are participating in the assembly are brought outside to cheer the team on as they pull up. At most schools, students and staff have taken the time to craft posters, banners – and even t-shirts! – to help celebrate the event. After arrival, students file into the gym, where the show starts.
The high-energy assembly with students brings home the message of cancer prevention and living healthy lifestyles through video presentations, head shaves, bike races, ice-cream eating contests and other fun activities.
At St. Michael Catholic School we strive to educate our students to the best of their ability in an environment that is nurturing and encouraging. We do this as we, “Act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with our God.”
