For many of the kindergarten students in the district, the first day of school can be pretty traumatic. The Niagara Wheatfield CSD Transportation Director Leslie Buczowski and her transportation personnel recently held two sessions at Colonial Village Elementary to help prepare them for their big day.
Mrs. Buczowski and the bus drivers went over safety procedures with the students and their families. “We like to do this every year because it makes it so much easier on the students when they know what to expect when they get on the bus. It also allows us to give their parents tips on how to make it a safer school year for everyone.”
The session concludes with students and families taking a bus ride so the students get over that fear and get to share their first experience with their parents. “We find it really helps them not be so overwhelmed and frightened on that first day and everyone has a great time.”
