Lydiksen Elementary school was recently chosen as part of the "Cool School" series on KPIX CBS new Channel 5 in San Francisco because of the unique physical education program that joins fifth grade classes with first grade students with special needs twice a week.

According to KPIX, the mentoring program began over 15 years ago. P.E. teacher Paul Stewart told KPIX, "That's one of the great things about this program... something I didn't really realize was going to happen when we started was that is was going to be such a great lesson for the fifth graders."

KPIX reported that Lydiksen is "nearly 99 percent bully-free" due in large part to the mentoring P.E. program.
