Happy Earth Day!

Celebrated every April 22, Earth Day is the largest, most celebrated environmental event worldwide. More than 6 million Canadians join 1 billion people in over 170 countries in staging events and projects to address local environmental issues. Nearly every school child in Canada takes part in an Earth Day activity. For more on Earth Day, visit Earth Day Canada.

This year, Elizabeth Crawford's Grade 4 class has been working on a special project. Click here for the article and picture in today's Guardian to learn all about the play and book they created about water conservation, The Mermaids and the Droplets. This project was funded by ArtsSmarts P.E.I. and the P.E.I. Literacy Alliance.

2013 School Bus Driver of the Year Award

The Prince Edward Island Home and School Federation is pleased to announce their annual School Bus Driver of the Year Award.

This Award recognizes school bus drivers on Prince Edward Island for their service in keeping our students safe as they travel to and from school each day.  Our school bus drivers are professionally trained individuals who capably transport our children in a safe manner. They are the first school employees who come in contact with our children each school day, and the last at the end of the day.  Drivers are expected to teach students school bus safety rules and procedures.

Bus drivers manage student behaviour on the bus and care for the physical and emotional well-being of each young person each and every school day.  School bus drivers play a vital role in our education system, and the PEI Home and School Federation is pleased to recognize an outstanding individual for their service and dedication to the safety of Island children.  Parents, through their Home and School Associations, are invited to submit nominations for a School Bus Driver of the Year Award.

If you would like to nominate a bus driver for this award, please contact a member of the Home & School Executive. The submission deadline is Friday, May 17th so get your nomination in ASAP.

Thank you for supporting our School Bus Drivers!
