School Bus Safety Week

School Bus Safety Week reminds students, parents and
motorists of their important role in school bus safety

Georgia celebrates National School Bus Safety Week on October 20 - 24, 2014, and Georgia School Bus Driver Appreciation Day on Monday, October 20.  Schools and safety advocates throughout the Peach State are using the week as an opportunity to highlight the importance of school bus safety.  The 2014 theme for the week, Be Smart - Be Seen, I wait in a safe place, reminds students, parents and motorists of the important role each plays in ensuring student safety at the school bus stop.  One key factor in protecting Georgia’s students rests with motorists obeying the law and stopping for Georgia’s school buses as they board and exit. But, drivers should also be reminded that obeying the law is just not enough.  Children are unpredictable… motorists must have an overall heightened safety awareness and expect the unexpected as children wait at bus stops and as they get on and off their school bus.

Accent on Academics

Students in Coach Bill Wilhelm’s 7th period General P.E. class participated in a flag football game as a part of their course work.  Students practiced drills for two weeks to learn passing and catching skills as well as kicking and punting skills.  Teams were drafted by a lottery draw for team captains and then captains drew names for individual teams.  Teams practiced and developed their own plays and held a six team tournament.  The championship game had the two undefeated teams face each other. Pictured above are members of the winnig team: Keymaun GIlliard, Lavert Washington, Laura Hopper and Lamarion Boyd (not pictured Alyssa O'Neal).
