My Driver – My Safety Hero!

Blog Image Bus Safety

2018 National School Bus Safety Week is October 22-26, 2018 and the theme is “My Driver – My Safety Hero!

*The theme of National School Bus Safety Week is derived from the Poster Contest the year before. The 2017 winning poster, depicted above, was drawn by Aumkar Patel, a 5th Grader at Henry County Schools in McDonough, GA

PTA takes our children’s safety very seriously.

*Georgia PTA’s resolution on HB 978 passed during the 2018 Georgia PTA Convention and Leadership Training in Augusta, GA.  Although Georgia PTA considers the counsel of other professional and non-profit organizations, the views expressed in these articles may not be the views of National Bus Safety Week and the NAPT.
