Through the generosity of Urban Air Adventure Park Altoona, Bruno and Lena DeGol Foundation, Reliance Bank and Alan Hancock Agency. 239 third grade students from Ebner Elementary, Juniata Elementary and The STEAM Learning Center at Penn Lincoln Elementary received a free bike and helmet at an assembly on November 18. Students prepared for the assembly by reading
Think BIg, Work Hard, Be Kind, No Excuses
and writing an essay on the four principles and how they will use them to work toward what they want to be when they grow up. Three lucky students were to win a bike at that assembly.
After learning that all students would receive a bike, students (and teachers) were brought to tears!!
