San Marcos High School’s Texas Association of Future Educators took up brooms and mops to clean during and after lunches last Friday, in celebration of Custodian Appreciation Week.
Other students reportedly joined in the cleaning efforts on-the-fly. The students wore pink gloves as they cleaned to also recognize Cancer Awareness Month. The club of about 25 members also bought the custodians a decorated cake and made them thank you cards and banners.
“It was the best Custodian Appreciation Week I ever had,” said Lupe Saucedo, head custodian at the high school.
After picking up trash inside and outside, wiping all the tables, sweeping, and cleaning the restrooms, the club members were reportedly exhausted. They said the hard work made them appreciate their custodians even more, and they plan to make this work day and annual event.
San Marcos CISD observed Custodian Appreciation Week district-wide Oct. 3-7, recognizing at the campus and departmental level the following dedicated workers:
• Bowie Elementary – John Hernandez, Bruno Vasquez, Esther Sanchez, Richard Rodriguez, Irene Chavez
