The Reiche "Walking School Bus" is up and running!

A note from Ms. Wiggin: The "Walking School Bus" is a great way to get our 4th & 5th grade students who no longer qualify for bussing to school safely, on time and with adult support! Maine Govt. Walking School Bus Program Logo Adults leave Reiche school at 7:55 sharp each morning and our route is covering Mellen, Grant, Sherman, Weymouth, Boynton, Gilman, A and C streets. We currently have 12 students on our route and a few VERY dedicated volunteers. We need all the help we can get to make WSB a success again this year. Please consider volunteering one day every week. You'll meet great adults and students, contribute in a meaningful way and get an hour of cardio in! Contact Susan Wiggin at 874-8175 or wiggis@portlandschools.org if you're interested!
