Lindell students thank bus drivers

Lindell Elementary School students recently expressed their appreciation to the bus drivers who get them to and from school safely. On Feb. 15, members of the Student Council and Safety Patrol led their peers in an effort to acknowledge the transportation staff.

Under the direction of Student Council advisor Jane Quinton, Student Council participants were joined by fifth-grade volunteers who help to ensure smooth arrival and dismissal times through their service on the safety patrol. The group encouraged all students to take a Vow of Silence, promising a quiet ride home on the bus.

Bus Driver Appreciation Day was a surprise for the drivers, who learned of the initiative upon their arrival at the end of the school day. Students greeted them with signs that they created prior to the event and provided small gifts including water bottles, tissue paper flowers, pop-up cards and treats wrapped in bus-themed paper.
