NEW CITY, N.Y. -- Students who ride to and from New City Elementary School every day on "Black Bus" received the Bus of the Month Award in April, according to a school announcement.
The awards are given to the deserving students based on end-of-month the bus drivers complete based on their performance.
The winning students were characterized as a group that understands the need for students to act as a team to make sure the rides to and from school are safe.
"Older students are helping younger students find seats and are reminded to stay seated on the bus. They are mindful crossers, always watching the bus driver signals to cross in order to stay safe," said the review by driver Steven Goetz.
His passengers, he wrote, are "truly a pleasure to take to and from school daily," according to the release.
