Edgewood Education Center News
Three North Education Center students received top honors for the 2014 Minnesota School Bus Safety Poster Contest sponsored by the Minnesota Association for Pupil Transportation and the Minnesota School Bus Operators Association. Two of the school bus safety poster winners were guests of the Minnesota State Patrol at a Twins game this summer.
Students Leo (right) and Eric (left) attended the Tigers-Twins match up on August 21 where they met Lieutenant Brian Reu with the Minnesota State Patrol. Their exciting day included walking on the field while their posters were projected on the big screen and their names announced.
"Be Smart. Be Seen. I Wait In A Safe Place" was this year's theme for the 173 young artists' competition. Our students took First, Second and Third in their category. The First Place poster goes on to national competition.
Certificates were presented to our students by Superintendent Sandy Lewandowski and Transportation Coordinator Amy Tiedens who was instrumental in working with classroom teachers to prepare and submit entries. See Leo's poster. See Eric's poster.
What a great way to wrap up the summer!
