Episode 37: Celebrating Canyons' Custodians
/

Canyons District’s Custodial and Grounds Coordinator Kevin Kelson humorously mentioned a light-hearted saying about the work accomplished by custodians.

Noted during an interview for this week’s Connect Canyons podcast, the saying goes like this: “No one knows what we do until we don’t do it.”

Thankfully, we don’t have to experience that with the amazing crew of custodians who, even while coping with worker shortages, keep Canyons in tip-top shape.

Truth be told, there might not be a more important job than the critical work custodians perform around the District, from cleaning restrooms and lunchrooms to maintaining boiler rooms and chillers. We’re certainly grateful for the contributions they make to keep Canyons sparkling clean and sanitized.

“There’s a lot that goes into that stuff that’s behind the scenes,” Kelson said. “They just go about their day, go about their business, and they just get it done.”

In conjunction with National Custodian Day being celebrated this weekend — every October 2nd — we sat down with Kelson for insight into the fantastic job the District’s 150 full-time custodians and 500 part-timers do to take care of more than 6 million square feet around Canyons.

Thanks to all of our sweepers, custodians, leads, and assistant facility managers for all you do!

CSD custodial lead trainer Todd Muir said it well last year when thanking his massive crew.

“The calendar says it’s our day, but, in fact, every day is our day.”

Enjoy your day off, custodians. You’ve more than earned it.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
