On the heels of Valentine's Day, Aurora Public Schools students and staff took time out of their schedules to recognize and pay tribute to APS Transportation Team members as part of the Love the Bus campaign.
The day began with an early morning breakfast at the APS Transportation Office, where various staff and Board of Education members dropped in to express their gratitude to the bus drivers and paraprofessionals who ensure students get to and from school and other events safely and on time. Guests enjoyed food, conversation and laughs before starting the school day.
Students at Peoria Elementary School and Vista PEAK Exploratory P-8 also participated, as they made posters, cards and personalized Valentine's Day gifts to present to the bus drivers and paraprofessionals during morning drop-offs. Students shouted "We love our bus" and "Thank you, we love you" as the buses pulled in to school parking lots, evoking tears of joy and warmth from the celebrated staff members.
Simply put, we Love the Bus in APS!
