Focus on the Little Things....

by Brad Domitrovich, PR Zealot

Not a day goes by that when I ask somebody how they're doing - they give me a one word answer ... "busy". Everybody is busy! I have found that sometimes when we are busy, it's easy to forget our good customer service habits.

Remembering the little things keeps us focused. What are the little things? Words like: "Please", "Thank you", "Sorry for the inconvenience". These are very simple to say, but very much appreciated by both our internal and external customers.

These little things cost us absolutely nothing, take very little effort, and make big points with our customers - especially if they are angry. This week, remember the little things. Our customers will notice. Our customers will appreciate it. Our customers will say "Thank you" to us. That's great customer service!

FSE Celebrates Grandparent's Day

On Friday, September 11, FSE will celebrate Grandparent's Day. Please work as grade level teams to plan an activity or read aloud. I have attached a link with some ideas if you need them. The celebration begins at 1:45 in the classrooms. We will hold grandparents in the cafeteria until 1:45. We will provide cookies, punch, and the note to go home. Grandparents may sign students out in the classroom if permission has been given.

Sick Leave Bank

Please access the form via the Human Resources website- the link is below. The enrollment period timeline is July 1 through September 30. New personnel employed after the enrollment period shall be eligible to join as soon as they begin their work, and must join within 30 days of the beginning date of employment.

*Please note to establish the sick leave bank, beginning with the 2015-2016 school year, a minimumof 100 employees must elect to become members of the sick leave bank during the first enrollment period. A minimum of 50 members are required to sustain the sick leave bank in subsequent years. The bank will dissolve if membership falls below 50.
