The wheels on the bus...

I’m reminded of Steve Martin in ‘The Jerk’ where he gets overly excited by his name appearing in the new phone book: “I’m somebody now, I’m somebody now!”

Well folks, the Pioneer Valley Chinese Immersion Charter School has a BUS (what my daughter refers to as a “Kira sized bus”). We are definitely somebody now! Of course, going from zero to $500,000 in start-up year of operations also makes you a somebody.

Amherst rezoned this South Amherst intersection “Village Center” a few years back. Come September, with all the young children flocking to this building, it’s going to look feel and sound like a Village—a Global Village.
