Celebrating YOU on Labor Day!
Where, oh where did our summer go? Tomorrow, American workers all across this country will celebrate Labor Day with their families, friends and fellow workers. I hope that you have made plans to attend a Union sponsored Labor Day event that is celebrating the greatness, dedication and hard work of the American worker and the unions that protect you. Each day as we prepare to report to our assigned location, complete the requirements that our administrators expect, and service the over 100,000 students of JCPS I hope that we will each take a moment to look around and see the work being done by not only ourselves, but our co-workers.
With over 8000 homeless children attending JCPS, you are often the light at the end of the tunnel for many of our neediest children. The smiles that you give, the pats on the back, the extra words of encouragement, the selflessness of sharing your own lunches, purchasing school supplies from personal funds, and the many other unnoticed acts of compassion and kindness that your provide each day exemplifies you as the American worker and beyond.
As our children grow into adulthood, we can only hope that our daily actions, works and deeds, leading by example, and day-to-day activities will carry our students into a life of productive, honest and hard working young adults who will take our nation forward, protect those that need support and continue the very foundation of that was created by you, the American Worker! Congratulations on a job well done!
With 300 tickets sold to our JCAESP/AFSCME members and families, we hope to see you at the 18th Annual Labor Day at the Zoo sponsored by Unions all around Kentucky. Stop by our booth and say hello, we would love to meet you and your family!
