Bus Drivers Teach Students How to Keep Our Community Rolling!

First fives began their community helpers unit for the month of October with a visit from a Ferndale bus driver, Mr. Tom! The students were invited onto the bus to learn some bus safety and to ask questions about Mr. Tom's role as a community helper. Next stop for the young students will be a trip to Westborn Market to explore a local grocer, as well as a walk to the Pleasant Ridge police department. Students will also be visited by the Ferndale fire department!


If you're interested in helping out your community like Mr. Tom, Ferndale Schools is currently hiring bus drivers to work while students are in school. Starting pay is $20 an hour with paid training, paid time off, and benefits including enrollment credits in the MI Public Schools Employee Retirement Plan for as long as you are driving. The job posting can be found here: Bus Driver Job Posting. Call (248) 586-8896 for more details, email james.stottlemyer@ferndaleschools.org, or contact your school office.
