LAKE WALES – Kindergarten students in teacher Tera Dent’s class at Hillcrest Elementary were excited to wash a real school bus after reading about “Superkids” story characters cleaning an old bus to create a clubhouse.
Dent asked Lake Wales Charter Schools transportation managers to park a bus at the school earlier this month (Feb. 9) so her students could reenact part of the story.
Kindergarten classmates Anna Conroy and Kash Coconato worked together to wash the back of the bus (PHOTO #1) and Raquan Mose carefully washed the stop sign on the bus (PHOTO #2). Every student washed part of the bus (although the top didn’t get washed).
“The children had a blast washing the bus. One girl said it was the best day of Kindergarten!” said Dent.
