Living Out the Magis

Prep’s students are making strides towards a greener future by embracing an alternative mode of transportation: biking to school. An initiative spearheaded by German teacher, Kyri Khouri, gained momentum and became a bit of trend among the German classes.

With their commitment to reducing their carbon footprint, these young individuals are laying the foundation for a more sustainable future.

Kyri Khouri, hailing from Germany, is no stranger to the joys and benefits of cycling. Biking to work every day, she decided to encourage her students to join her in celebrating National Bike-To-School Day on May 3. Four students, Skye Luebbe Davidson ’24, Brooke Wilwerding ’24, Siena Kiefer ’24 and Charles Casey ’24, enthusiastically accepted the challenge and embarked on a new adventure by pedaling their way to school. In an awe-inspiring feat, one student even cycled all the way from Queen Anne, showcasing both determination and dedication.

Proudly witnessing the students’ embrace of this eco-friendly mode of transportation, Khouri has expressed her admiration for their commitment to making a positive impact on the environment and trying something new. She reported that the momentum was not slowing down anytime soon, as a group of juniors continued the commitments with a biking expedition from Magnolia to Seattle Prep in June.

By choosing to bike to school, they are working to reduce their carbon footprint one pedal at a time. Beyond the environmental benefits, biking also promotes physical fitness and fosters a sense of camaraderie among the students. It allows them to experience the city in a new light, appreciating its beauty and embracing the fresh air that accompanies their journey.

The students’ commitment to being agents of change aligns perfectly with Prep’s ethos. With their determination and enthusiasm, they are proving that small actions can make a big difference.

So, as the wheels keep turning and more students explore different modes of transportation, the Seattle Prep community celebrates these students for their commitment to reducing their carbon footprint and inspiring others to follow suit. They are making a positive impact on the environment and hopefully leaving behind a legacy of sustainability for future classes.
