Sunlight falls upon Aaron Thomas, 11, right, as he waits for a school bus recently outside Ridgecrest Elementary School in Largo. "I don't mind getting up early to go to school," Aaron says. "I like school. Even if it is cold out, I don't mind. I just stand in the sunlight." Aaron and his friends ride Pinellas County school bus No. 408 to Southern Oaks Elementary School, where Aaron is a fifth-grader.
