Children's Book Harvest:
The Children's Book Harvest was overwhelmingly successful this year!! Books are still trickling in with one school's drive just now getting underway, and to date over 29,000 books have been collected. They are on target to break 30,000 books collected this year!! The next step is to organize volunteers to help clean and repair books so they can be distributed to children. You can all help by gathering a few friends, other parents, or colleagues and joining in a cleaning event. If you are interested in assisting, please contact
Shawn Jaquiss, Children's Book Harvest Manager to work out the details.
If a PTA successfully recruits a school bus driver and the driver completes the training course and 90 working days, then First Student will write a check for $500 to your school. Recruited drivers must inform First Student Personnel during their initial visit, which school recruited them. Prospective drivers must be 21 years old, have 3 years driving experience in the U.S. and have an excellent driving record. They also must pass a drug screen, physical and criminal background check. Driving a school bus is a great part-time job with health benefits, a starting wage of $13.69 and guaranteed 5 hours per day.
