Year-end gathering for egg-ceptional employees
Sue Scott

While school is out, about 140 custodial and maintenance staff gathered at McCutcheon High School for the department’s annual in-service day. Employees completed various required training programs, reviewed procedures, and then were showered with gifts and donations. While $25 gift cards to local businesses and restaurants were much appreciated, most of the excitement centered on a large donation from the families of Cole Elementary School: farm-fresh eggs.

Principal Mike Pinto asked his school families for the donations to show appreciation to the staff who work hard to keep our school buildings clean, safe and maintained.

“Cole has a very caring community which appreciates people whose work gets their hands dirty,” says Pinto. “I believe the overwhelming response by the community validates the worth of these fine employees and their part in the overall TSC mission to educate children.”

Thanks to the donation from Cole, more than 140 dozen eggs were distributed to the buildings and grounds employees.

“We understand the work they do can feel thankless at times,” says Amanda Wright, secretary for the Buildings and Grounds Department. “We want each employee to know they are valued and it takes all of them to keep our schools safe and operating successfully.”
