  • FYI from PTSA:  As you know, we have many hard working bus drivers and monitors in our school district. Right now, we have a shortage of drivers which means our drivers are working even harder to transport our students and keep them safe. A group of volunteers are making one dozen of cookies to give to our hard working bus drivers and monitors as a thank you for Christmas. Jennifer Beckner will transport the cookies to the transportation department on December 18. If you are willing to make a dozen of cookies to help, please let her know. She can arrange to pick up the cookies you donate. I hope this small gesture will let our bus drivers know that we are so appreciative of their service to our community. Jennifer can be reached at 758-0869 or becknerjennifer@gmail.com.
