I happen to be working at school this morning and though our custodial team is not quite done with all of their work yet, they are still hard at work finishing up all of the summer cleaning jobs in time for teachers and staff to move back in to their assigned areas in preparation for our big day.....August 29th, when our students are back!
I want to brag a little and give a HUGE, warm thank you to the summer work crew! They are truly amazing and deserve to be praised!
There is something very important I want you to know: Weathersfield School is the cleanest school I have ever worked in, (and I have been working in public schools for more than 40 years). Every room in this school is emptied in the summer so the work crew can wash ceilings and walls, replace bulbs and scrub light fixtures, the painting schedule is honored, bathrooms get a deep cleaning, the kitchen is scoured until it shines, the fire lanes and stop areas are painted, the desks and chairs are scrubbed inside and out, the screens and windows are all cleaned, and the floors are scrubbed and waxed so you can see yourself. The gardens are weeded and look pristine and soon the scarecrows will be displayed to welcome the children. This is very important and why I believe we have little vandalism. WS is our second home and we treat it with respect and honor. Our students sense this too and I believe they DO notice how clean and warm this school is, not just at the start of school, but all year long. Taxpayers need to know that their hard earned dollars are well spent as we work diligently in keeping this beautiful facility in stellar condition.
Please join me in thanking our incredible summer crew for their hard work, attention to detail, and their determination in making this school shine, even on some of those sweltering, hot days. Thank you so much! Your Panther Pride is shining through and we are so proud of you!
