St. Charles Childrens Learning Center Holds Trike-a-thon, Graduation
Students at the St. Charles Childrens Learning Center on the La Plata Campus of the College of Southern Maryland were riding circles around their parents and teachers at this springs annual Trike-a-thon. The event is held to raise awareness of safe biking practices such as wearing a helmet, paying attention to signs and looking before crossing a street or in front of a driveway. The children enjoyed riding in a large, empty parking lot, separated from vehicular traffic, in front of their center.
Soon, 11 members of the Class of 2009 will be zooming off to kindergarten. The students were acknowledged during a graduation ceremony June 12 where they received diplomas from CSM President Brad Gottfried.
