BMX Show High Flyin' Experience!
Tricks, twists and turns...the BMX bike show was all about big air! The entire school was totally entertained by this wonderful final prize from the successful FPA magazine drive. The performers were world-renown and professional BMX riders. They did not let us down with their high-skill tricks and wonderful message about how important education is in fulfilling our dreams and goals. Everyone held their breath as a professional BMX rider jumped over 6'9" Junior High math teacher, Mr. Faust sitting on top of a ramp. Luckily the rider successful competed the jump! Thank you to everyone who supported the FPA in this year's magazine drive!
