All are welcome! Our Safe Routes to School Regional Coordinator, Nora Shepard, will be conducting a Walking School Bus "Driver" training on Tuesday evening, February 19th, from 7-9 pm in the Tuscan Library. This training will go through all our policies and procedures to prepare you to lead a Walking School Bus- a valuable service with many benefits to our children, our school and our Maplewood community! Hope to see you there! Please RSVP to Cami Zelevansky firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Regional Coordinator for Safe Routes to School, Nora Shepard gave an informative presentation on Wednesday evening to the Tuscan PTA. Nora has been training our Tuscan SRTS committee on the Walking School Bus Program and shared much of the information with the larger audience of the PTA on the 23rd. Nora's coverage is over 700 schools, not all of them have established SRTS programs, but you can imagine how valuable her time is! She has spent many hours so far with our team, and we are so grateful for her guidance!
Maplewood Township Committee member and Deputy Mayor, Kathleen Leventhal attended the presentation as well as Assistant District Administrator, Stephen Gardberg, Principal Majeed and Vice Principal Mason. The presentation was received with great enthusiasm and nine PTA members signed up to support Tuscan's Walking School Bus Program!
We are looking forward to the official starting date of our two routes on March 15th!! Stay tuned for information on our upcoming training sessions for the Walking School Bus "Drivers", all are welcome to participate.
