The William Paca Middle School National Junior Honor Society recently expressed their gratitude to bus drivers and matrons from First Student Transportation and Durham School Services, the district’s transportation providers, for their efforts throughout the pandemic. This group of young scholars brainstormed and decided to provide each of them with a note and a bag of M&M candy to illustrate the theme, “Thank you for the ‘Miles & Miles’ you go for our students.”
The students also wrote a letter to them, which states, “On behalf of the entire student body of the William Floyd School District, the William Paca National Junior Honor Society would like to sincerely thank you for your dedication to our students during this past year. When the world seemed to shut down you continued your service to all of us, providing meals to so many students. When we returned to school you made sure we stayed safe while traveling on your buses. You truly were on the front lines and were essential to all of us. Thank you for your “Miles and Miles” of service!”
Students also created a banner and personalized each bag of M&Ms for every bus driver and matron in the district, not just at William Paca Middle School, added Shanna Marte, advisor, William Paca Middle School National Junior Honor Society. Extras were provided to first student and Durham representatives to share across the district.
