Holiday Cheer!

Thanks to Andrew and Michele Lovin for hosting the Silverback holiday celebration this year.  They are wonderful hosts and created an awesome experience for staff.  What a great way to kick-start the holidays with some amazing people!  Thanks, again, Andrew, Michele, Sunshine, and everyone else who participated in making this event memorable!



Welcome our new Day Lead custodian – Richard Cox!

On Monday, ABM will be transitioning our new Day Lead custodian – Richard Cox.  Richard has over 16 years of experience with ABM, most recently working at Hearthwood Elementary School.

Thank you to everyone for your patience as we have waited for our new Day Lead to take the helm.  We look forward to working with Richard and having him join the Silverback family.  Hopefully we can introduce him more formally next Wednesday at our early release.   If you have the chance and get to introduce yourself, please do so and welcome Richard!


ILT Meeting – Wednesday!

As a reminder, we will hold our final ILT meeting before the 12/20 December ILT shareout.  Below is a calendar of the next 1.5 weeks:

12/13 – ILT (This is a required meeting)
12/20 – Early Release Day/ILT Shareout

ILT shareout will run in a similar fashion to last year.  We will spend time connecting with colleagues before the holiday break and share updates about where we are in the midst of our Action Plans.  We are aware that we’ve only had a few meetings, so please make the most of our next required ILT meeting as prep (12/13).
