¡Ole! Sharpstein Elementary students Lauren Adams, Olivia and Keegan Isenhower and Jackson Adams helped organize several yard sales to raise funds for their school’s Cinco de Mayo assembly.

Collaborating with Sharpstein PTA, they netted enough proceeds to purchase six new outfits for students to wear while performing in the annual Cinco de Mayo celebration.

Prospect Point Elementary’s second annual Bike Rodeo will be from 10 a.m.-noon Saturday in the school parking lot, 55 Reser Road.

Open to students and their families, the event promotes bicycle and road safety and physical fitness.

Students can participate in eight activity stations, such as helmet fittings, bicycle tune-ups, rules of the road and an obstacle course.

Once students have completed every station, names will be put into a drawing to win two new bicycles. The event sponsor is the Bicycle Barn, which is located at 1503 E. Isaacs Ave.
