Today our school celebrated the work and skill of our amazing school custodian, Mr. Steve . He knows the students, they love and respect him. He’s willing to help out with the craziest of plans. He’s fun and upbeat.
To celebrate his helpfulness, poems were recited, books were written and illustrated. We even had a song to sing. The student council purchased a gift for him. It was a nice gesture. Yet this important helpful staff member’s job has been privatized. He no longer has medical care, sick time or a decent living wage.
