Who’s talking trash?
You come to a clean school every morning but do you ever wonder how long someone stayed to clean it and who that someone was. Ever since childhood we have become accustomed to having someone pick up after us, whether it was our parents at home or the custodians at school. But somewhere along the way, many of us decided that it is okay to treat our cafeteria and classrooms the way many of us treat our bedrooms. Now some of you may have rooms in which unwanted gifts and long forgotten Tamagotchi pets can be found in the dark corners of your closet and beneath the bed.
But what happens in your room stays in your room. However, at school everyone has to work together as a community to help maintain a clean and safe environment.
Sure some of you are thinking “well that is the custodian’s job”, or “they get paid to do it”, but everyone can use some help now and then. The custodians are a big part of our school community and work long hard hours, so let’s do them a favor and help out so that they won’t dread coming to work every day. Now I’m not saying you need to take out Mr. Clean products and start wiping the tables, all I’m saying is it wouldn’t hurt to pick up after yourself and throw away your garbage in the trash cans, which are conveniently located near every cafeteria exit. And as for those of you, who love playing trash basketball, please swallow your pride and pick up whatever misses the garbage can.
They say that actions speak louder thank words. If that’s true lets take action now and show our appreciation by simply throwing out our trash.
