First Day of School!!!

I love the first day of school. Today, students in grades 1 through 12 joined the rest of us to start their school year. As in the prior 10 years, my day started on a bus. This year I had the pleasure of riding with Bob Lisa. Bob has been driving for A&F for nine years. Bob’s rapport with the students and families along his routes was clearly evident. Thank you Bob!

One of the interesting observations on the first day rides have been the contrast between the cool and subdued high school students and the energy and excitement of the elementary riders. This year was no different.

One sure thing is that every parent waiting at the bus stop was smiling.

Thank you for sharing your children with us. We are all looking forward to a great school year.
