The 6th grader’s note gave the bus number and the time of the incident, as well as a drawing of the bus complete with the shocked faces of children in the windows.
“She was trying to pull off and hit the car,” it read. “She hit and run.
“She tried to veer over and squeeze through but couldn’t.
“She actually squeezed through. She made a dent and I saw what happened.”
The girl even offered her condolences in the note, adding 'Sorry' at the end.
Mr Sipowicz has since tweeted to say that the girl has been located and he plans to reward her after saving him thousands in repairs.
Update: The student who wrote the letter has been found and we’re in the process of finding a way to reward her for her actions. Very grateful for what she did

Another tweet from the child’s teacher said she would not have to do any Thanksgiving homework as reward for her good deed.
Proud teacher moment. One of my students wasn't afraid to be a 'snitch' and did the good deed. NO THANKSGIVING HOMEWORK! https://t.co/Wu9IG8Q3bf
