BMX stunt performers perform at EMS


The East Moriches School District recently hosted the BMX Stuntmasters as part of a school safety grant for the School Bus Stop Arm Program. The funding was provided to promote traffic safety. Rather than using the funding for generic signage, the district wanted to do something creative and meet the kids at their level.

“We have a very active community and a large amount of students who are avid bike riders. It is important to us to not only teach kids about being safe, but to inspire them to want to respect the rules of the road,” said Edward C. Schneyer, principal of East Moriches Elementary School, who enjoyed the event. “Safety is East Moriches School District’s highest priority.”

The BMX Stuntmasters performed for students and parents in a district-wide community event. The goal was to connect with kids in a meaningful way and have them learn about safety from role model experts. They also focused on character building, antibullying, and being a leader.

“It was a fantastic show, and our students were so excited!” he added.

Later on in the school year, the district will also be teaming up with the East Moriches Community Ambulance, which visits the school to reinforce bike safety and donates helmets to students.
