Peaceful Bus Program

We are excited to share that we will be piloting the Peaceful Bus Program on Bus 218 at Siegrist this semester. The goal of this program is to develop a positive and safe environment on the school bus for all students. Over the next several months, students will work with their bus driver- Mr. Mark Nelson, as well as our Director of Transportation- Mr. JT Thomas, Mr. Mike Powers and building administrators to build relationships, develop expectations for their bus, and practice the 7 Habits. Students in higher grades are paired with students in lower grades to foster a mentoring relationship. We are excited to see all of the great ideas our students share for making our Siegrist buses a great experience for all students!
