Exciting news: The Buddy Bench installation has begun! Tuesday they poured the concrete and set the purple frame. Once that is complete, the remainder of the bench will be assembled. Have a peek if you're by the play ground and start a conversation with your kids about what is the purpose of a Buddy Bench. Kids that are feeling lonely or looking for a new friend to play with can sit on this bench. Another child that sees them sitting there can go over, talk to them and invite them to play. It's a good addition to teaching kids about empathy and looking out for one another. After all "Mustangs Choose Kind!"

Little Elk Island Adventure: Registration

Elk Island Public Schools is once again running Little Elk Island Adventure, a fun and informative program for first-time school bus riders.

Annually, Student Transportation offers the Little Elk Island Adventure to new riders and their parents. The program’s aim is to help ease any anxieties a family may have about riding the bus before even starting school. Through a series of activities, riders learn about: school bus safety, danger zones, tips on boarding and how to sit properly on the bus. After that, both the children and parents hop on the bus to practice what they’ve learned and then venture out on a short ride.

The Little Elk Island Adventure is for first-time school bus riders entering the 2019-20 school year. Sessions and times are available at these locations:
