At a time of so many late school bus pick-ups and drop-offs, and shortages and rotations of bus drivers (every day a different one on some buses), I want to shine a light on the driver of bus #39 at Coleytown Elementary School.
Mohammad is the most amazing driver we have had in the 5 years I’ve lived here. He was our driver last year and we thought he was stellar then. But this year, in just 3 short weeks, he has blown us all away with his timeliness, his compassion for the children and their safety, and the smile he brings to the bus stop every morning and afternoon.
Bus 39 hit the driver jackpot, and we couldn’t be happier! He never leaves the stop without checking if all the regulars are on the bus. He drops off and won’t leave the youngest children alone if there is not a parent waiting.
He waits for us if we are running late, and most of all he has full control of a packed bus of children who are always seated and well behaved.
Let’s give a shout out to the driver of Bus #39: a hard worker who comes who shows up every day for our children!
Your Blue Ribbon Drive/Bayberry Lane/Cross Highway crew recognizes you, and all the great things you have done to get our children to CES on time and safely.
You can’t put a price on that!
Congratulations and thank you, Mohammad. You are our Unsung Hero of the week. To nominate an Unsung Hero, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
