CR Legal Team Giving Away Bikes for Academics

CR Legal Team is conducting a Bike Safety Rodeo on Fri., Oct. 12, at Eastlawn Elementary School in Burlington from 11 am to 12:30 pm. CR Legal Team will draw the names of two students in grades 3-5 and will present these winners with new bikes as a way to reward local students’ academic commitments and achievements. The firm will also provide all students with complimentary bike helmets.

The event recognizes dedication through academics and also promotes bike safety. Students from Eastlawn will be honored for attending school during their Intercession, which lasts from Oct. 8-12. The optional Intercession program provides additional academic support to children needing it in reading and math, and also offers a fun incentive for children to stay involved. The commitments of the 45 students who attended will be honored during Friday’s bike rodeo celebration.

Eastlawn Elementary School operates a Title I program, a federal program that provides financial assistance to local school systems and schools with high percentages of children living in poverty as a way to support the academic achievement of disadvantaged students.The program helps students achieve proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards, such as reading, math and writing.

“We commend these students for their extra time and commitment during their fall break,” said Chris Roberts, CR Legal Team ’ president. “We are honored to team up with Eastlawn Elementary School, and what better way to support education than to teach and promote safety as well.”
