Love the Bus
North Laurinburg Elementary kicked off “Love the Bus” Week with a program on Bus Safety Awareness. Guest Speaker Mr. Julius Docker, Asst. Transportation Director/Driver Supervisor spoke to students about bus safety and being respectful to the drivers as they are driving. This was then followed up with a skit “The Grumpy Passenger” performed by select faculty. The skit focused on how to be a “Happy Passenger” rather than a “Grumpy Passenger” when riding the bus. Closing remarks were made by Asst. Principal, Susan Deese. We would like to say THANK YOU to all our wonderful bus drivers and monitors at North Laurinburg. We LOVE you all!!
