October 2 is National Custodial Worker’s Recognition Day. On this day we want to show our appreciation to men and women who keep our schools and workplaces across the nation running smoothly. 

Custodial workers operate behind the scenes. They are often under-appreciated for the hard work they do day after day. These are the personnel keeping schools, hospitals, office buildings, museums, churches, and other buildings clean and well maintained.

While delivering outstanding services and running a well-maintained operation building, they contribute to critical first impressions and the success of any business. They’re the people we call on to give our brick and mortar businesses a polished look. The school and office buildings look organized and presentable because custodial workers efficiently keep everything in top condition.

Additionally, their skill saves businesses and organizations money. Well-maintained floors and surfaces last longer. Seasonal updates and maintenance help buildings to run more efficiently, too. Custodial workers make sure buildings are ready for each school year and day and running correctly. As a result, the buildings are safer and healthier for those entering them.

Thank You on this your Day.

A Beat Four Soldier Story A Beat Four Soldier Story

Beat Four 3rd grade Honor Student and Sassy Cat cheerleader, Kylie Cooper, had an extra special reason to cheer last Friday.

Kylie is a member of Mrs. Ashley Craven’s class. Mrs. Craven along with Principal Tommy Branch and Assistant Principal Cindy Cooper and the entire school coordinated with SGT Wilona Cooper, Kylie’s Mom, to surprise Kylie with a visit from her soldier mother.

SGT Wilnona Cooper has served as a combat medic in the U.S. Army for 5 years. She is currently stationed in South Korea with 2nd Battalion 1st Air Defense Artillery Regiment serving a one year tour. Currently both of Kylie’s parents are away on mission as her dad (SGT Durrell Mitchell) is preparing for deployment.

Kylie was surprised in the cafeteria. She had no idea her mother was coming home for a visit during her deployment. She will be home a few weeks before returning to Korea. Kylie and her classmates will never forget this special day.
