iCan Bike Program Coming in July - Donations Needed
Through the efforts of Quaker Valley Learning Support teachers Lauren McGuirk and Jason Harrison, the iCanBike@QV program camp is coming to Quaker Valley Middle School from July 27-31, 2015.

To make that happen, about $10,000 has to be raised. The money will provide camp tuition, t-shirts, a water bottle and more to 20 students. Donations are now being accepted online. read more | click here to donate
