In any school, there are numerous individuals behind the scenes who are critical to the the success of the school day. They transport our students to and from school, on field trips, to athletic events, take care of our campus, drop everything on the drop of a hat to clean something or help someone, and are amazing people to work with. These folks do their jobs day in and day out with little to no recognition. Most of them prefer it that way as this little project revealed. Finding some of them to get a photo proved to be challenging and there are several we were unable to get a photo of because they just want to make a difference quietly. Even if you are part of this team and not pictured, please know you make a difference and are appreciated. Thank you for all you do!
