Thank you to everyone who participated in the most exciting and engaging event with Barton's Bike Stroll on Thursday, September 16, 2021. The event was fun, entertaining, energetic, and most importantly, SAFE. The route was Ohio Street to Chicago Road to Prairie Street to Joy Road leading us back to the school. We were escorted by Detroit's finest, the Detroit Police Department. We would like to thank the 2nd Precinct Detroit Police Officers.
Officer Franklin has always supported Principal Adams with making a difference and putting smiles on kids' faces in this community. His partners' Officer Burdett, Officer Tyler and Officer Havez have supported her as well for many years, even before she became Barton Elementary School's Principal. She thanks them from the bottom of her heart, for keeping the community safe and assisting when needed.
Another huge shoutout to the Barton staff, students, families, and community. 85% of the Barton staff participated. Every K-5 grade level was well represented with their families as they all took the challenge of cruising on their bikes or walking while holding the student-created Barton Elementary School banner. Most importantly, a big thanks to the Barton community as they stopped traffic and waited patiently for strollers on the route. WHAT AN AMAZING EVENT IT WAS!
