Bell Top Elementary School rolled out the red carpet, literally, for its bus drivers and aides on Thursday morning. After dropping the students off at school, the bus drivers walked on a red carpet of construction paper and into school while students and staff applauded them.

Once inside, the drivers were treated to a special breakfast. They were also given large decorative stars with their names in the center that had been signed by their student passengers.

The Bell Top school community organized the event to thank the bus drivers for the important work they do each and every day.

“I am pleased the entire Bell Top student and staff population joined together to recognize some of our most valuable players, our bus drivers,” said Principal Martin Mahar. “Our bus drivers provide the first line of communication for our students as they greet them each day with a smile. They really can make a student’s day, and I appreciate all their efforts. I’d like to thank all those who were involved in coordinating this event and for rolling out the red carpet for our Bell Top bus drivers.”

Thank you to our Bell Top bus drivers and aides!
