Arlee Bus Driver Shares Concerns About Cars Passing Buses https://nbcmontana.com/news/working-for-you/arlee-bus-drivers-concerned-about-cars-passing-their-buses
To the Community of Arlee, I am pleased to announce the start of a new community education campaign. Schools Cannot Do It Alone is designed to give everyone a better understanding of the importance of public education to the health and well being of the entire community. The video series is informative, entertaining, and inspiring. I know you will enjoy it. There can be no doubt that we are living through a difficult time. But the need to prepare all children to thrive and prosper has never been more important. As the title of our new campaign suggests, we - the teachers, administrators, support staff, and Board - cannot succeed without your understanding, trust, and support. Attached below is the link to the first video in the series. This twelve-minute clip provides a review of the challenges we face, old and new. There are no ads. No one is collecting data of any kind. In the months to come, you will find that the overall message is that we all have a vested interest in increasing student success whether or not we have children in school. Here is the direct link: https://player.vimeo.com/video/445589485 Enjoy and have a great day. Mike Perry, Ed.D., Superintendent
