New kindergarteners at Fairley Elementary started their educational journey with an ice cream social on Aug 28.
Parents and children first gathered outside for an introduction to the Hannibal Central School District transportation system.
Children with no previous bus experience had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with a school bus as they rode for the first time.
Each student received a complimentary stress ball in the shape of a school bus as a gift for participating.
Transportation staff talked with parents about a fairly new system on the buses installed a few years ago.
This radio system allows the bus garage to communicate with individual buses when they are out on a run.
Parents can rest assure in the school system’s capability of identifying their children’s location at all times.
The afternoon concluded with a visit to classrooms where students were able to meet their teachers, followed by ice cream and visiting in the cafeteria.
