February Employee of The Month is Mike Kubiak

Mike has been a Caro School bus driver since 2014. In the time that he has been with the district he has been extremely conscientious in his duties. Mike goes the extra mile for the students that ride his bus. He will take a backpack all the way across town to a student that forgot it on the bus if he feels that student needs it right away. He communicates with the parents of his riders keeping them informed of student behavior and activity on the bus. Due to his diligence he has very few negative behaviors to report. His bus is also the best kept in the fleet! Thank you Mr. Mike, for going above and beyond, and supporting all programs necessary for developmental support to your riders of all ages!
