Sioux Mountain Hosts the First Rider Program
On Wednesday Sept 16th Sioux Mountain Public School, in conjunction with the Northwestern Ontario Student Services Consortium, hosted the annual “First Riders” Program. This is a bus safety awareness program provided for all Junior Kindergarten and new Senior Kindergarten students who have not previously ridden the school bus or participated in the program. Students from Sacred Heart school joined Sioux Mountain students first in the gym where consortium staff member Ray Heito talked about bus safety and showed a bus safety video to all students. Then students, along with their teachers boarded busses and went for a ride, practicing bus safety rules in the bus and bus safety while boarding and departing the bus. Special thanks to local Iron Range Bus Lines for providing the busses and drivers free of charge!
