First Baptist Academy is excited about our annual bike rodeo!!! ​​ This is a wonderful opportunity to get kids excited about bike riding, and a perfect way of teaching kids about bike safety! ​​ The bike rodeo will take place December 6th​​ – 8th, and will be held from 9:30-11:00. ​​ Parents are welcome and we need several to come and help out.


When: ​​ December 6th: ​​ 2nd​​ and 3rd​​ grade


  ​​ ​​​​ December 7th: ​​ 4th​​ and 5th​​ grade


  ​​ ​​​​ December 8th: 1st​​ grade


What kids need to know: ​​ Children must be able to ride a bike and they​​ need to bring a helmet or they cannot participate. ​​ Training wheels are welcome. ​​ The kids will go through several stations teaching bike safety.  ​​​​ Children do not need to memorize hand signals, for this will be taught at one of the stations. ​​ If you are unable to bring a bike or your kid does not know how to ride a bike they can still participate and have a great time!


Bike Drop off: ​​ Bikes can be dropped off from 7:45-8:45 in front of the gym. There will be someone to assist you as to where to put the bike. ​​ Once the bike rodeo is over you are encouraged to take your child’s bike home, but if this is not possible you can pick it up when you pick up your child at the end of the day.​​ 


Dress: ​​ Children may come to school dressed in their P.E. attire for the day. ​​

Students have freedom in the choice of content. The work does not have to be spiritual in nature, but we encourage a spiritual application, if appropriate. Please avoid potentially offensive themes that include racial slurs, deal with the occult (witchcraft, ghosts, haunted houses, etc.), or have excessive fantasy, sexual innuendos, vulgar themes, excessive violence, and bathroom humor. A student may, however, choose one of these areas—ghosts, haunted houses, excessive fantasy, sexual innuendos, vulgar themes, or bathroom humor—and deal with it in a positive, biblical manner. Questionable material will be returned and will not be judged.


Short Story—The story may deal with a spiritual or historical personality, theme, or idea. The writer must stay within the bounds of moral and acceptable subject matter.
