Students Lining Up to Get Their Yearbook Signed by Mr Steve the Custodian
Students at Alan Shepard Elementary School in Bourbonnais, Illinois wait patiently to have their yearbook signed by Steve “Mr. Steve” Weidner, the school’s long-time custodian.
“He pays attention to the kids… he knows who they are,” Principal Shirley Padera said about Weidner. “The kids know if anything happens, Mr. Steve is going to take care of it.”
According to Yahoo, Mr. Steve signed all 104 of the second graders’ yearbooks in addition to 200 more from other classes.
“He [Mr. Steve] has good relationships with the students,” Principal Padera adds. “Many of our children remain in the building for 5 years because our grade levels are kindergarten through 4th grade. They have many opportunities to interact with Mr. Steve.”
