Desperately Seeking ... Tricycles!?!

Grade 8 French classes would like your help as they complete a unit on French sports, featuring the Tour de France. To succeed, we need tricycles!

If you may have an old trike cluttering up your basement or garage, read on....

The "Tour de BMS" will take place Tuesday, June 4 during regularly scheduled classes. This entertaining spoof of France's famous Tour de France cycle race has become a school tradition since its institution in 2012 at Briscoe. Instead of bicycles, our students compete in a relay race: on tricycles.

If you can contribute a trike large enough to support the weight of a small eighth grader, please contact Madame Faria through email at

Milles mercis. (A thousand thanks).
