Middle North Builds a Biking Unit with Help from Community Members

Hawthorn is grateful to the Vernon Hills Police Department for helping Hawthorn Middle North’s physical education teachers build a biking unit. While the students learned about biking virtually with regards to safety, maintenance and access to local trails this year, they will be riding the bikes during the next school year. Additionally, the District thanks M&M Cyclery in Mundelein for helping with the maintenance of these bikes as teachers get them ready for the riders. Middle North is accepting donated bikes.
