The annual Bus ROAD-eo was held Tuesday, April 24 at Bertie Middle School. Each year, school bus drivers put their skills to the test by executing specific and precise driving techniques, which afford points to the drivers if completed successfully.
Following the competition, all Bertie County Schools’ bus drivers had lunch at the bus garage, and the top three drivers were announced.
1st Place – David Biggs, Jr.
2nd Place – Adrain Holley...
3rd Place – Sandra Allen
The Transportation Team also made sure there were a variety of door prized for the occasion.
Mr. Biggs, the first place winner is a substitute bus driver. Therefore, Mr. Holley, the second place winner, who is a regular driver, will represent Bertie in the regional competition in Rocky Mount on May 11. Congratulations, and good luck!

Colerain Elementary held a PBIS Game Day on April 13.
PBIS event days are for students who have at least 80% or higher on DOJO points (for positive behavior & completed efficient work tasks). The students who were invited to the game day received a snack and time to play games with their peers.
A different PBIS event was held once a quarter along with the PBIS "CES store,” which afforded students an opportunity to earn CES “monies” to purchase a variety of goods and mercha...ndise.
First Quarter PBIS: Pizza Party
Second Quarter PBIS: Movie and Popcorn
Third Quarter: “Fun Day” (An outside field day and bouncy house)
PBIS stands for “Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports.” It is a statewide public school initiative, which involves teaching students expected behaviors and acknowledging students when they exhibit appropriate behaviors.
