Constitution Day and Citizenship Day 2022

We thank Mr. Jonathan Gonzalez and the students from his Citizenship classes for their celebration in observance of Constitution and Citizenship Day 2022. These future United States citizens from The English Center celebrated this significant occasion with their teacher and classmates. The purpose of Constitution and Citizenship Day, which was officially established in 2004, is to commemorate the creation and signing of the supreme law of the land and to honor and celebrate the privileges and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship for both native-born and naturalized citizens.

¡Felicidades Jesús López es un honor para todos! por la Dra. Gemma Carrillo

Una escuela es un edificio que necesita apoyo de muchas personas para poder funcionar. Los maestros son indispensables, pero también son indispensables, los oficinistas, los que hacen nóminas, los que arreglan algo y sobre todo, las personas que limpian.

Jesús López ha sido un empleado de limpias de nuestra escuela The English Center por más de 20 años. Comenzó trabajando de noche, cuando el edificio abría hasta las 2 de la madrugada para impartir clases. Hoy en día, Lopez es uno de los supervisores de la limpieza del edificio.

Gracias a sus esfuerzos, sus colegas lo acaban de nombrar un de los finalistas como Empleado del Año. Estamos muy orgullosos de Jesús por sus méritos y trabajos. Este nombramiento nos recuerda la importancia de cada uno de nuestros empleados. Y también de la necesidad de tener empleados buenos, dedicados y responsables.

Constitution Day and Citizenship Day

On September 17, 1787, the Founding Fathers signed the U.S. Constitution. For over 200 years, the Constitution has served as the supreme law of the land. The Constitution, along with the Bill of Rights and other amendments, define our government and guarantee our rights. Each year, on September 17, Americans celebrate Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. In addition,  We encourage Americans to reflect on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and what it means to be a U.S. citizen. We also recognize people who are taking steps to become U.S. citizens. We at TEC prepare, students for the naturalization interview and test. For more information, please stop by the registration office.

We Congratulate and Honor Mr. Jesus Lopez - TEC's Head Custodian

A school is a building that needs the support of many people in order to function. Teachers are indispensable, but they are also indispensable, clerks, those who do payroll, those who fix something and above all, the people who clean.

Jesús López has been a cleaning employee at our school The English Center for more than 20 years. He started out working at night, when the building stayed open until 2 a.m. to teach classes. Today, Lopez is one of the building's cleaning supervisors.

Thanks to his efforts, his colleagues just named him to the finalists for Employee of the Year. We are very proud of Jesus for his merits and work. This appointment reminds us of the importance of each of our employees. And also the need to have good, dedicated and responsible employees.

At this time, we are looking for custodians for public schools. Janitorial work involves cleaning and maintaining buildings, facilities, equipment, and grounds with the direction of the work by their superiors. The person has to perform manual jobs that involve a variety of cleaning tasks that are specific in nature and follow a well-established and clearly prescribed routine.

The employee is responsible for the use of proper methods and materials in the cleaning and care of buildings, facilities, equipment and grounds. Once hired, you will be offered training and support to learn the work routine and the necessary requirements to work.

Requirements are: a high school diploma or its equivalent and demonstrated ability to speak, read, write and understand instructions. Also, sufficient physical strength and agility are needed to perform a variety of routine manual tasks in the care, cleaning, and general maintenance of buildings and equipment. Interested people just go to the website: JOBS.DADESCHOOLS.NET

Apply for a job with benefits, pay and a better future. This way we can thank you tomorrow for your support of our student community as we do today for Jesús Lopez. Mr. Lopez, we wish you the best of luck in this contest, although we know that for us you are already the winner. Congratulations!
