Bus safety is a topic that is always popular with the opening of school. Students at East Portsmouth Elementary recently participated in bus safety training. Tips include being alert to traffic, sitting quietly to not distract the driver, and safely exiting the back of the bus during an emergency.
On Consitution Day, students at PES and PJHS/PHS were permitted to wear their hat to school...as long as they donated a dollar. Mrs. Ferrara's kindergarten class headed up the idea of Hat Day, and the secondary school joined in. The event was designed to raise awareness of organ donation, and to help aid an elementary student at Portsmouth West who is in dire need of a liver transplant. Over $700 dollars was collected and will be put toward the cost of his treatment. Way to go, Trojans!
