2016 – 2017 Bus Buddies



Hello 5th graders:bus

This is an exciting time for you! You have finally reached 5th grade and can now help keep your bus/walker line or car/van area safe.

Here are a few facts you should know about being a Bus Buddy:

  • You need to be a good role model on the bus
  • You will be working to help students stay on the right T.I.G.E.R.S path
  • Bus Buddies will be seated in the front and middle sections of the bus at all times
  • The bus driver is the one in charge and is the only one who submits incident reports

If you are interested in being on Bus Buddy, you need to write Mrs. Collins and Mr. Cohen a letter.  This is due by September12, 2016. (This letter can be handwritten or typed)

The letter must include:

  • Your name
  • Your bus number/or way you get to and from school
  • Your teacher’s name

Then tell a little bit about you…..

  • Why do you want to be Bus Buddy?
  • What T.I.G.E.R.S traits do you have that would make you a reliable and responsible Bus Buddy?
  • How would you show the younger students the reliable and responsible way to act?

Remember that you must be reliable and responsible. If you are written up on an incident report, you will be relieved of your roll as Bus Buddy for a minimum of 2 weeks.  If you are written up a second time you will lose the opportunity to serve in this role.

Any questions or concerns please let us know.
