During April Break, nine RSU 57 Transportation Department staff attended the Maine Association of Pupil Transport Conference, including Director of Transportation Richie Newton. Drivers, mechanics, and directors from throughout Maine discussed topics about maintaining a safe and respectful transportation environment for students and drivers; including complacency, health and wellness, and the error chain of effect. A driving skills competition was also held, and we are proud to announce that our very own mechanic Mark Bryant placed third, and will go on to the state championship! Mark has been with RSU 57 for one and a half years and we are so grateful to have him on our team!

It is with great excitement and pride that we announce the recipients of the Model Mustang Staff Award for the month of April! This award is a tribute to those outstanding individuals who embody the qualities of a true “Model Mustang”; they inspire, lead, foster positivity, persevere, and excel in all that they do. Each Model Mustang was nominated by colleagues who took the time to acknowledge and celebrate their coworkers’ exceptional contributions to our district. Their hard work and commitment have not gone unnoticed, and we are grateful for the positive impact they have within RSU 57! This month's winner is Jackie Chaplin from Alfred Elementary! "Jackie is a leader in our building through and through. She volunteers in a multitude of ways to support a variety of areas in our school. This includes direct instruction, individualized student support, community outreach, school-wide positive behavioral support implementation and "in the moment" help when needed. She always goes the extra mile, especially when she knows it will benefit our school community and is in the best interest of our kids. :) Thank you Jackie for all that you give, please know how appreciated you are!"

As a bus driver, I have the freedom to enjoy summers, holidays, and weekends off.  It’s been a game-changer! I can finally enjoy life outside of work on my own terms and spend quality time with my family.
Having great healthcare and dental coverage means I can breathe easy knowing I’m covered when I need it. It’s like a safety net that lets me focus on doing what I love without any added stress. Big thumbs up to RSU 57 for looking out for their drivers!
Transporting kids from kindergarten to graduation isn't just a job; it's a privilege.  As the first face students see in the morning, I know I'm setting the stage for their success. Over the years, I’ve gotten to really know the students and their families and those relationships are part of what makes being  a bus driver so special.
Working as a bus driver at RSU 57 is ideal for me as a parent. The convenient commute and schedule align perfectly with my family's needs, allowing me to be there for my kids while still pursuing a fulfilling career. It's the best of both worlds!

On Monday, April 8th, millions of Americans witnessed a total solar eclipse! Did you know there won’t be another one to cross North America from coast to coast until 2045? We did some fun activities to build our knowledge of this upcoming event, watch the total solar eclipse from NASA, as well as view that start of the eclipse right here in Shapleigh! What an amazing learning experience for all.
