PANAMA CITY, Fla. - In Megan Peters' third grade class at Northside Elementary School, she is teaching students different character traits in addition to reading, writing, and arithmetic. Belle Robbins remembered one of those lessons recently when she and her classmate were headed home on the school bus.
"That day Belle and her friend had gone to a different bus stop by mistake so when they got off the bus and saw the friend's parents weren't there the friend told Belle she was very worried," Peters said.
"So we walked over to her house and the door was locked. I asked her if she wanted to come back over to my house. My parents were there, and I asked them and they said yeah, yes. She got to stay there awhile, and we did our homework," Belle explained.
"It's nice they got to spend some time together, and they did their homework," Peters said.
Belle's friend was able to call her family and make it home safe.
"Belle had courage when she walked her to her house and made sure she was ok and didn't leave her alone," Peters said.
