The sixth grade class at Prairie Elementary is dedicating each month of this school year to “thinking of others”. The theme for September is “Be the reason someone smiles today”. Our faithful and dedicated bus drivers were the first recipients. Each bus driver received a pan of brownies made by the students as a thank you for keeping us safe each day.  Our bus drivers are the first ones that see the students in the morning and the last ones to tell them good night. The drivers know when the students have had a good day and when they need a little TLC!  They truly make our students smile every day.  Below is a close-up of the sign they are holding.
