As we approach the beginning of another school year, I would like to extend a huge thank you to all our members of facilities who have spent the hot summer months preparing the buildings for the new school year. The Support Staff of Local 5678 are looking forward to greeting all the eager students who are beginning school for their very first time and welcoming back all our former students. It is amazing how much the children grow and change over a few short months. Some of our students and staff have relocated schools over the summer and will be making new friends and establishing new relationships over the next several months. As Support Staff, we have an important role in helping students both academically, socially, and emotionally as they adjust to the challenges of the new school year. I would like to wish everyone a successful school year and encourage you to take the time to celebrate all your accomplishments regardless of how big or small they may be.
