To introduce incoming kindergarten students to what riding a school bus is like, Cobb County organized a pre-ride Friday morning.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution rode along as students, supportive parents and siblings were picked up and driven to a school, where a lineup of cheerleaders waited to greet and cheer the new kids on the block. The first student stepping off seemed a bit baffled by the reception.
I hope someone told him that the cheerleaders won’t be there Monday, when Cobb becomes the first major metro school district to open its doors.
The kids mostly had one word to describe the first ride. Check it out in the video.
