PBIS Assembly Honoring Bus Drivers

PBIS Hicks Bus Drivers
View more images from our assembly here

On Tuesday, March 6th, Hicks Elementary held a school-wide PBIS Assembly to honor our bus drivers. Our Hicks family wanted to show our gratitude to them for taking such wonderful care of our Hicks students and transporting them safely every day. Every driver was provided breakfast and coffee from Panera Bread upon drop off at Hicks. We then surprised each of them with a Panera gift card. Mrs. Gee continued the assembly with specifics to our processes and procedures at Hicks and on the bus to further ensure continued safety at all times. It was a GREAT morning! :)

Essie Mae Foundation chose to adopt Hicks! They spoiled every single student with a backpack, tons of schools supplies, food and an awesome performance by “Smiley” the Hip Hop Clown! The 4th-grade students enjoyed a dance-off between their principal Mrs. Gee and 4th-grade teacher, Mr. Furca! Such a special day! Thank you, Essie Mae Foundation for blessing our Hicks students with materials they need for a successful education! They also supplied each teacher with an industrial size container of Clorox wipes for their classroom! ❤️ #hickshustlesharder🐝
