What a success for Burroughs School and the annual "Week on Wheels" event. Over 351 Burroughs students from 13 classes took to the bike paths for a tour of Lake Harriet. About 60 students at a time ventured from Burroughs gym, around the lake, and back within a 55 minute PE class. Individually combined, that's about 702 hundred laps around the lake or about 2387 miles! There were more than 300 bicycles and 12 trailers in the gym. Many students were willing to share their bikes with those students who did not have access to one. The 3rd, 4th and 5th grade riders showed respect for other riders/bladers/joggers/walkers and used good bicycle safety skills and used respectful bicycle etiquette. Many compliments were given to the students from other park users. Over 90 parent helpers and classroom teachers contributed with supervision and support. 

The "Beachcombers" in kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades jogged or rode a scooter to and from South Beach at Lake Harriet. The students made sand castles and learned about respectful beach and trail etiquette during their class. There were more than 150 scooters in the gym during the event. Students learned about scooter safety while on the trails with other users. Burroughs students ran hard for a continuous challenge. Sixteen classes with over 432 students - about 60 at a time - ran the parkway path and combed the beaches for about 864 miles combined. Over 140 parents volunteered to run or scoot with the students as they embarked on their expedition.
