Hillside students take the wheel at Peaceful School Bus assembly


Hillside Elementary students worked together during the Peaceful School Bus assembly Thursday, Dec. 3, to discuss three essential questions.

What kinds of problems occur on the school bus?
Why is it hard for the driver (or any adult) to solve all these problems?
What can students do to prevent or solve problems on the bus?

This was the second of three Peaceful School Bus gatherings that the school will host.

"We want to let students and parents know that we care about our students' safety," Principal Shireen Fasciglione said. "Allowing students to talk about common problems they see on the bus gives them the opportunity to create solutions to those problems, which in turn, creates a peaceful bus."
