Buy a bus!

Transportation is key to our community life as we take part in field trips, athletic competition, performing arts activities, and travel to/from school on a daily basis.

The EMS fleet is cared for with great professionalism by our mechanic Oscar Erazo.  We get all the mileage out of our vehicles that we can. And sometimes, it's time to retire a well-used vehicle (or two!).

We have reached that point and plan to purchase a new (to us) bus during the summer of 2022 to be ready for the 2022-23 school year. Proceeds from the September 23 auction will help to pay off the purchase of a full-size passenger bus.


Thanks to our generous sponsors!
