STS Highlights: June 2022

June typically marks Conference Season. With schools out and bus drivers on break, summer is a great time for conferences and trade shows. These events are great opportunities for networking, to see new technologies, and to receive training. For those of you who are able to travel, enjoy these experiences and do everything you can to support your State and National Pupil Transportation entities!

The goal with these monthly resources is always to help elevate your career, department, or organization. Please FORWARD this email to anyone who could benefit from the content. As always, we take pride in helping you meet your training requirements and goals.

Enjoy the summer,
Patrick

STS Highlights May 2022

STS Highlights: May 2022

May is both Mental Health Awareness Month and National Bike Month!

After the last two years, many people are realizing that stress, isolation, and uncertainty have taken a toll on their mental health. Maintaining good mental health plays a big role in your overall well-being. When you’re mentally healthy, you are able to enjoy your life and the people in it, feel good about yourself, keep up good relationships, and deal with stress.

What To Do When You Need Help
 

National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling and encourage more people to give it a try. Cycling is a low impact activity that is great for physical and mental health. It is a good muscle workout and increases cardiovascular fitness, builds muscle strength and flexibility, improves joint mobility, decreases stress levels, and reduces anxiety and depression.
