New Haven prides itself on keeping our school clean and well-kept. We have wonderful janitors and maintenance to thank for that! Janitors at the high school include Hansi Bloch, Russ Gillig, Carol Cooke, and Lisa Kennedy. The janitors at the elementary school are Michael Malone and Elliot Weaver. Also at the high school is Bob Bratcher, who is the head of maintenance.
Our amazing team of janitors work very hard every day to keep our school looking nice. They sweep, mop, pick up trash, and dust every day. Our awesome maintenance workers also work hard to make sure our school is the best it can be and check to make sure everything is working. Without these hard workers, our school would be dirty and an unsafe place to learn.
Students at NHHS reflect on the hard work our janitors and maintenance staff do day-in, day-out. When asked how he felt about our janitorial and maintenance workers, Martin Lewis stated, “They do an excellent job and they are really friendly people to talk to.”
Joseph Rethmeyer also commented about the workers. He said, “They do a good job keeping our school clean. They are really funny too.”
Ethan Groner mentioned, “I think they do a good job keeping the place clean. I also think they are understanding and nice.”
Grace Soete also commented, “They work hard to keep our school clean and keep it intact. Without them our school would be not as wonderful as it is now.”
Not only do our students appreciate our hard-working janitors and maintenance workers, but our teachers do too.
Mrs. Anderson said, “I am not quite sure what we would do without our custodians. They continually provide us with a clean environment, setup for events, repairs, and a number of other tasks that are asked of them. They do this all while keeping a smile on their face and having a great attitude. I am extremely thankful for everything they do for our school.”
Ms. McCroskey stated, “The maintenance staff at NHHS are heaven-sent! Russ in particular gets the worst jobs from me-- he's hauled desks and tables across the school for me, and I always feel terrible for making him do it. But he's always so gracious and happy to help-- it's fantastic!”
Mr. Stutzman commented, “Our NHMS and NHHS custodians do a wonderful job. Russ, Hansi, Tessa, Lisa, and Bob keep our building looking its best and we appreciate all they do for us. They are always willing to drop what they are doing to lend a hand.”
Thanks to our wonderful, hard-working team of workers; our school is always clean and well-kept. We deeply appreciate all of your hard work! Words cannot express how grateful we all are for what you do for our school.
