SLCS District Update
October 13, 2022
Dear SLCS Families and Staff Members,
As we share in the “We Are SLCS” section below, we have some amazing students and staff. We are fortunate to also have some amazing community members who do the little things that make a huge impact on our students.
Meet “Mr. Tony”. One of Mr. Tony’s grandson’s, now a sixth grader at Millennium Middle School, asked his grandpa to wave when the bus went by his condo on its way to his kindergarten class at Hardy Elementary School. Like a good grandfather should, Mr. Tony was outside his condo waving at the bus just as his grandson asked. The tradition has continued to this day, as Mr. Tony gets up each morning and comes outside to wave as buses and cars pass on their way to Hardy. This small gesture gives students a great start to their day.
What makes this story even cooler is that the students and families notice the impact of the small gesture. Yesterday Ms. Akwari and the students of Bus #55 stopped outside Mr. Tony’s condo to drop off letters of appreciation. Thank you Mr. Tony for providing a bright start to our students day and thank you to the students of Bus #55 for showing gratitude.

Teen Driver Parent Toolkit
Traffic safety advocates across the country are working to encourage parents and their teens to talk about the importance of safe driving during National Teen Driver Safety Week, October 16-22, 2022. That week, and every week, parents should have conversations with their teens about the important rules they need to follow to stay safe behind the wheel of a motor vehicle and even as a passenger. With the help of involved parents, teens can become safer, smarter drivers. Teen drivers with actively involved parents are half as likely to be involved in a crash. To help parents manage their teens’ driving and keep them safe, the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning (OHSP) has created a Parent Toolkit and video.
SLCS Blue Out
