    • Love the Bus Week: WCPSS bus drivers travel thousands of miles daily to pick up more than 80,000 students from home and deliver them to school daily, and then make the trip home in the afternoon. It is a demanding job traveling through our county’s rush hour traffic in buses filled with students. We are appreciative of their service and “safety first” mindset with our students.  As part of the state Love the Bus celebration the week of February 12-16, we would like for families to consider letting the Powell bus drivers know how much we appreciate their service to our students.
      • Monday – Make a card of thanks for your driver
      • Tuesday – Give your driver a sweet treat
      • Wednesday – Give your driver a valentine

      • Friday – Give your driver a high five and tell them how great they are
