 “High Five”

High Five!

South Side Elementary’s High 5 goes to Larry Holbrook. Larry is our head custodian, a position that he has held for many years. He leads our team of two full time and one part time custodians to ensure the overall care of our school. Larry also served the community during his career as an officer for the Kendallville Police Department. After retirement he joined the ENSC team. Larry can be seen throughout the day taking care of our school and completing many tasks that others in the building are grateful to avoid getting involved with.

Much of Larry’s work is not seen by anyone. The majority of custodial work is taken for granted because the school looks great every day. Our school does not continue to look as nice as it does on accident or by chance. The work that has to be done on a school building would be like constantly walking around your house every day looking for every small and large project that needs attention. Multiply the size of your house up to the square footage of a school building, add around 400 people coming and going around you day in and day out, and be prepared for the unknown. We are very happy that we have Larry to do just that and more. When our building alarm sounds at all hours of the night and weekend Larry is there. On weekends he is there checking on the building. Rain, sleet, snow, heat, freezing temperatures, and people requesting things from him every day won’t stop Larry from showing up and taking pride in our school. For this we thank you, Mr. Holbrook! We notice and appreciate your efforts.
