Congratulations to this week’s Everyday Hero

Everyday Heroes Logo with the words: Celebrating OSD Employees

Everyday Heroes is a regular feature in this staff blog. Remember to submit names of employees districtwide who have done something deserving of encouragement and praise. Give a shout-out to one of your colleagues at your school or support building and watch for it to appear in an upcoming Everyday Heroes blog post.

Here is our newest honoree:

Everyday Hero
Theresa Jones, Grounds Crew, Capital High and Jefferson Middle schools

Theresa Is part of our Grounds staff and has been taking care of the grounds at Capital High School and Jefferson Middle School. Theresa does a stellar job keeping these sites looking beautiful for the staff and students to enjoy! She goes above and beyond tackling things like the famous “blackberry hill” by the baseball fields at Capital High School.

The Support Service Center office recently received a call from a community member who said, “the Capital High School campus has never looked so good.”

As one of our senior Teamster members here at the Olympia School District, she sets a great example for everyone and shows true dedication to our district with her hard work. She does this rain or shine and always with a smile.
