Today is National Custodian Recognition Day! They work while we sleep. Sometimes we walk around them in the halls not always “seeing” them or their work as important. That’s why we love this day, National Custodian Day, which rolls around every October 2. It recognizes the hard work that it takes to keep our public facilities in tip-top shape as well as the people who diligently work to make sure we have schools and workplaces that are spotless and sanitary. Our Maintenance Department is our first line of defense of the war on germs and often, it’s a thankless task. So, on National Custodian Day, please show your appreciation to the custodians and maintenance staff who clean and maintain the office buildings, classrooms and our outdoor/athletic facilities that you frequent at Brocton CSD. Thank you Ken, Mark, Jim, Jeff, Barb, Ryan, Joe, Tamara, Valerie, Will, Kelly, David, Bruce, and our dedicated substitute cleaners.

Happy International Dot Day! In honor of this day, the kindergarten classes have been spending time in the STEM lab building sticky dot towers. First, they listened to the story The Dot. Then they collaborated with a partner to build a tower using sticky dots and index cards. When the towers were complete, they were measured with rulers to see which tower was the tallest. This activity integrated literature while encouraging children to work on collaboration, communication, basic engineering, counting, comparison, and basic measurement skills.
