I just wanted to take a moment before August hits to say thanks for Academic Custodial's hard work and effort at Champions Hall.  I am very appreciative of your staff's effort and attention to detail.  Earlier today I was about 20 yards away from the Berg trophy case and my heart dropped.  I wasn't sure how, but I was certain the glass had been removed.  Turns out your staff have managed to keep it so clean it was nearly invisible.  Excellent work on this and everything around here.

Hello Tammy, just wanted to tell you how wonderful the cleaning crew here in NFAC is:  They do a marvelous job keeping NFAC spotless!  I've taught at 6 universities and I can say I've never worked in a place where the cleaning crew takes such pride and care in their work!  Kudos!

Tammy, On behalf of our team at the Strength Center, we would like to thank you and your team for all the hard work this year in making sure that our facility looks clean.  The Strength Center looks great and our members are happy!

Thank you!

Good Morning Tammy, 

I just wanted to extend my appreciation and gratitude to both you and your team for the extra care and support for the May 10th Chancellor's luncheon.  The event went off without a hitch and the building/rooms looked impeccable!  It is because of your time this event shined… literally!  Please be sure to spread my many thanks onto your team!

Thank you so much for all that you guys have done to be considerate of our long (and late) working hours.  Not only do we appreciate your wonderful cleaning, but also your compliancy in letting us work during cleaning hours.  Thank you for all that you do to keep the CPS building looking great!

Hello office,

I have been studying in the library of UWSP since middle of August as my family moved in Stevens Point from Ottawa Canada. I found the library is absolutely clean. The desks,  tables and chair are well placed, as each day I saw cleaning staff vacuuming and wiping floors, sofa, and chairs, sanitizing desks and tables and place them in proper locations.  Their hard work made the university library a best and enjoyable environment for students, faculty and staff to study and to work. Please let the cleaning staff know that they have done amazing job for everyone who studies and works in the library. Thank you!

Dear Tammy,

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate the excellent job that your staff do for us here in the CCC!  I support two academic departments – 21 faculty and 6 adjuncts – and have spent last summer and this summer cleaning out office and storage space to make our work space more efficient and welcoming.  I had a lot of faculty members who did not submit cleaning requests as they were supposed to, plus I had a few faculty members change offices.  Whenever I see our custodians they are cheerfully working on the 4th floor, they always help me with my last-minute requests.  Just this week, they helped me by cleaning up an office suite for three new adjunct instructors that I was scrambling to get ready.  I know that you and your team are always working tirelessly in the background.  The CCC looks better than it has in a while, thanks in part to the hard work of your crew.

Hi Tammy,

The custodians in CCC have just about completed cleaning the blind, WOW, what wonderful service. I didn't expect it to be done today.  They are always so helpful and friendly, great colleagues to have in COLS! We are so lucky!  I was simply astonished when I saw Mary and Pam cleaning the blinds on Thursday!  Thanks to their quick work, I was able to move into my new office much more easily!

Hi Tammy,

Can you please let the supervisors and the chancellor know that the work being done by the academic custodial staff in the TNR building is superior.  I've worked in the TNR building for 22 years and it sparkles with cleanliness, by the hard work and dedication of the custodial staff, than it ever has in the past.  They all deserve recommendation and a raise!

Hi Tammy,
I wanted to share with you that I went to CCC for a meeting yesterday and WOW that building is sparkling!  The floors and classrooms look amazing.  Two custodians were there working and I stopped to let them know.  Anyway just wanted to pass that along. 

Thank you for all that you and your staff do!

Good Afternoon Tammy,
Friday night was a huge success and it would not have been possible without the help, expertise, and hard work of your team.  I always enjoy working with your department and appreciate the flexibility and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty to help ensure the events I help coordinate run on time, look impeccable, and go off without a hitch.  That said, please extend my sincere gratitude for your staff's time and help.

Thank you!

Dear All, Thank you for keeping Collins so clean. 

The hall floors are always spotless, the bathrooms smell fresh, with mirrors, sinks, and toilets always clean, paper always on the rolls and in the dispensers, garbage always emptied regularly. Our office space in 108 is so well-maintained – always vacuumed, garbage cans emptied, sensitive recycling files handled regularly.

It is a great place to meet with students, and always a pleasure when visitors (especially parents and prospective students) come through, knowing that we look good.  A clean environment is a wonderful start, and the custodial staff here are remarkable in doing an outstanding job.

Please pass along our gratitude for all their hard work.

I wanted to drop you a note in regard to the custodial staff here in the library and the deep cleaning of my office that was just completed.  The individuals who did this work were kind, caring, considerate and truly professional!

We started off with a miscommunication on my part; I came in on the day they were cleaning the carpet in my office (I wasn't supposed to) and the custodians were willing to make every concession; they would come back, they could schedule another day; they were willing to alter their schedule to accommodate me when I was wrong.  Next, they did such an amazing job cleaning my office.  Everything, and I mean everything, was cleaned.  The top of my desk cabinets, which I can't even see so who knows what was growing up there, my shelves, the tables, and chairs, everything was cleaned.  And the entire time they were incredibly careful and gentle with my plants, personal items, and paperwork on my desk. 

I have been impressed with the custodial staff from the moment I got here.  They are all personable, say hello, do their jobs as quickly and quietly as possible and are incredibly dependable.  But this deep cleaning went so far above and beyond I just had to let you know.  I know custodial work is not glamorous, and I'm sure you and your staff are never thanked enough for what you do, but thank you!  In the 22+ years I have been in higher education, I have never had to pleasure of work with and being taken care of by such a tremendous group of people.

Thank you!

Hello!  I just wanted to let you and your custodial team know that the floors on the basement level of Old Main look fabulous! You guys did a great job shining them up and removing the old rust stains from where the file cabinets used to line the walls. It's really nice walking through the hallway and seeing the floors shine. Thank you.

Dear Solo and Ensemble Janitorial Staff,

Thank you so much for spending your Saturday working this event.  Having so many students on campus makes for a huge mess but all the buildings look great and we appreciate that.  Again, thank you for your time and effort.

Good morning,

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of those who were involved in hosting the 2016 North Central ACDA Conference from March 19-23. I am so proud of the volunteerism and kindness displayed over the 5 day event. I appreciate those who willingly gave up the majority of their spring break to host the conference and admire the Pointer pride displayed by students as they welcomed, guided, and supported the more than 450 students and faculty who attended from colleges and universities throughout our region. 

Thank you to Tammy Larson and your custodial team for ensuring that the spaces were clean and ready for class each morning. Congratulations again to all involved in hosting the 2016 North Central ACDA Conference!

I want to let you know what a great job Beth and Melissa are doing on the 5th floor of the Library.  They do a terrific job!  Although I have verbally told them what a great job they do, I feel their supervisor should also know they are excellent, hard working employees.  In particular, I am impressed with the quality of their work in the Archives.  These two employees keep our area cleaner than it has been in years.  Due to the nature of our work, and the materials we use, this area is dusty and there are always chips of old paper, etc. on the carpet.  I would guess it is one of the dirtier areas in this building.  In addition to UWSP students, faculty and staff, and members of our local community, we frequently have researchers from throughout the United States and abroad use the Archives.  It is great to know that I can depend on having a clean area for them to work in.  Having a clean area is another way we give these researchers a positive impression of our campus.  It also makes for a healthier work environment for all of us who work in the Archives.
I truly appreciate the effort Beth and Melissa make to maintain our workspace!

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for your attention to details and quick turn around on all of the items we requested for last weekend.  The gym, locker rooms and hallways looked great as did the drive down 4th Avenue with all the NCAA signs.  
Please pass our appreciation on to all those involved in processing and completing the last second tasks throughout the week.
Best regards!

I just wanted to let you know that the Tutoring-Learning Center has been very clean this past week.  Melissa, Beth and Jeff have been doing a great job.  The  bathrooms down the hall are clean in the morning!  So nice to see it done early.  Our office has been vacuumed and looks great.  We have a lot of foot traffic and really appreciate the time and effort! The rest of the office also looks great too.

Thank you!

Good Morning,

I just wanted to give a shout out to Beth, Melissa & Jeff, who are helping to keep the LRC clean and fresh smelling! I have noticed the past few weeks, that things look brighter, cleaner and smells fresher. I walk the staff stairwell a few times a day and that even smells clean! I appreciate the vacuuming, dusting, floor mopping, and all the other things that are taking place behind the scenes.

Thanks for all the great efforts to make working here, healthier by keeping it clean!

Hi Paul and Chris. Greetings from the North.

I wanted to send a quick note to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for allowing your facility team members to come to n last week to help us learn new floor waxing procedures, cleaning tricks of the trade, start us on the switchover to the cube chemical system and install our new dishwasher.  All staff were fantastic, engaging and friendly and we were amazed how efficient they have d the custodial program on campus from cleaning to waxing.  Our facilities staff and I traveled to campus last Monday to see your system.

The efficiency was top notch and all the employees we dealt with were very hard workers. Having worked in the parks and recreation and camp field for 20 years, I know how challenging it can be to find top quality staff in a facility service / custodial department... you have an incredible team in place.

Attached is a photo of your team and our team after lunch last Thursday. We had a great time with all and Tammy does a great job "running the ship", keeping everyone on task - you can tell the staff respects her, yet still have fun while working. Have a great weekend and thanks again!

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of your help with family day facilities. Without you, we wouldn't have been able to run the program! Thanks again!
