Students at Shadydale Elementary are ready to show off their creativity.
On Monday, May 20, 2019, METRO, along with students, faculty, and staff from Shadydale Elementary School, will unveil a nearby bus shelter that has been transformed by the school's young artists.
The theme of the newly designed shelter is, “Oh, the places you can go, things you can see and people you can become.”
Shadydale teacher, Marissa Ford, who helped spearhead the project, said the project was a wonderful hands-on learning experience for everyone involved.
"Promoting optimism, goal-setting and a growth mindset is something my colleagues and I work to instill in our students each and every day," said Ford. "It was exciting to see how enthusiastic they were about researching other countries, destinations they'd like to visit and careers they're interested in. The theme was perfect and our kids can't wait to see their artwork up for all the community to see."
The stop was chosen because of its location along METRO's 45 Hempstead route and it is frequently used by students and their families.

Public transportation is more than just a means of travel, it is the thread that ties the communities together - uniting people, cultures and neighborhoods as one. Bus stop shelters are perfect canvasses to inspire and reflect the local character of the communities and neighborhoods they serve.
