In recognition of the American School Bus Council's "Love the Bus" campaign,
Crown Point Elementary and
Palm Avenue Exceptional Student Center recently provided its school bus drivers and attendants with special Valentine's Day treats.
The students and staff of Crown Point Elementary presented their bus drivers with a big red heart signed by each of the students who ride their bus. Inscribed on each heart was, "We love our bus driver," and the signature of the bus riders. In addition to the personalized heart, each driver was given a box of candy by the students as they loaded the bus for afternoon dismissal.
At Palm Avenue, the bus drivers and attendants were served a breakfast of coffee, juice and doughnuts, and each received a Valentine goodie bag to take with them.
“Our drivers and attendants do so much for our students
ensuring they get to and from school safely each day,” said Donna Fogle, bus coordinator for Palm Avenue Exceptional Student Center.
The "Love the Bus" campaign encourages parents, students and teachers to take a moment to thank the school bus drivers and monitors who deliver students safely to and from school, after school activities and field trips each day.
