Student leaders create a lot of activities which put stress on a building and its caretakers. Take the time to thank the custodians by having a Custodian Appreciation Day. Serve them a complimentary lunch and have your leaders clean the cafeteria and halls on that day. Don’t forget to have something special for your night crew as well. The clean-up work give students a greater appreciation for the hard work custodians do.
EDSS decided to take the custodians out to lunch. Unfortunately, we couldn’t take them out of the building, so we brought lunch into the cafeteria and set a nice tablecloth with string music from the music classes.The student leaders then cleaned the cafeteria at the end of the period, giving our custodians a break.
