The English Center, M-DCPS | May 11, 2023

Attention Parents of K-12 Students

Please review each of the attached flyers which detail the new rates for the before/afterschool care and summer programs which will begin July 1, 2023. The district has been extremely mindful of the impact on families associated with raising fees. To maintain our quality of care, and to offer our highly qualified staff a competitive wage, an increase in program fees is necessary.

We thank Mr. Jonathan Gonzalez and the students from his Citizenship classes for their celebration in observance of Constitution and Citizenship Day 2023. 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.

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!
