Schenectady Schools

Go to the Schenectady School District website and read a story on the Peaceful School Bus at the Hamilton Elementary School.  There are great photos to see on the site also.

News from Minneapolis

Here is what I found on the Minneapolis Public Schools website:

"I' ve had a peaceful year on the bus. People have been sharing seats with me.  I have not seen many problems on the bus.  My bus driver makes me feel safe when I get on the bus"-Student
