9/7-Thursday Announcements

Attention PM Bus Riders, Please be sure to listen carefully for your bus to be called.  Also, make sure you walk behind the blue line and look at the signs in each bus's window for your bus number.  Buses do not always arrive at the same time everyday and in the same order.  Although, we have many adults outside to help you get on the bus after school, you must be watchful to find your bus too.  Thank you.
