Celebrating School Bus Driver Appreciation Week
Dr. June Atkinson, State Superintendent, visits Ellenboro Elementary

February is the American School Bus Council’s annual “Love the Bus” month.  In honor of North Carolina School Bus Drivers, Governor Pat McCrory proclaimed February 11th-15th as “School Bus Driver Appreciation Week.” In celebration of this, on Thursday morning, February 14th, State Superintendent June Atkinson got on Ellenboro’s Bus 140, driven by Lisa Melton, at a bus stop with fourth grade students, Cameron Smith and Paul White, and rode the bus to Ellenboro Elementary School. While riding the bus, Dr. Atkinson enjoyed talking with students and later commented that the ride brought back memories of when she was young and rode the bus.

Upon arriving at the school, Dr. Atkinson received a warm welcome from the many students, teachers, assistants, principals and members of the central office staff who lined the main hallway of the school to greet her.

Dr. Atkinson then spoke at a reception, hosted by members of Ellenboro School's PTO, which was held in honor of both her and Ellenboro School's bus drivers. Dr. Atkinson said it was important that we take time to honor the bus drivers who do so much for our county and state.  She personally thanked the bus drivers at the reception for the work they do and encouraged principals, teachers, parents and students to find a way to thank school bus drivers for their service throughout the year.
