Every Saturday, we highlight a non-teaching staff member on our Facebook and Twitter (@vcsc_teamvigo) account, turning Saturday into #Staffurday to introduce you to some of the people who make school happen!

Every year is a great year to celebrate our staff, but this year has shined a bright light on the flexibility and compassion of our incredible staff.

Today, meet Donna Carpenter, a custodian at Ouabache Elementary School.

What motivates you?
Knowing my job performance plays a part in the health and well being of the students and staff.

How has your job changed due to COVID?
More frequent spraying and disinfecting of many surfaces.

What is something that people don’t understand about your job?
We have more responsibilities besides just cleaning.

Why do you love VCSC/your school?
We have such a fun loving staff not only for our students but for each other. We are like family and are so passionate for the future of our Ouabache students.

Be sure to check back on Wednesday as we highlight another teacher for #RedforEd Wednesday! We’ll continue both campaigns through the end of the school year.
