Each summer, USD 430 hires students to work with our custodial crew to take care of all our summer needs. These students help scrub and wax the floors, clean classrooms, paint inside and outside our buildings, and many other tasks. This year we had an exceptional group of students. A huge thanks to Avery Wischropp, Austin Hoffman, and Jonathan Boller IV. We also received an additional shoutout for Austin, Jon, and our newest custodian Ryan Willis! They did an excellent job cleaning the school vans - inside and out! At the end of the summer all three of our student workers returned to school.
