Aramark has been a wonderful support to the SD308 Oswego High School Work Based Learning Program. The staff has partnered with us to make our students feel welcome and an important part of their school and community! They have supported over 15 of our students this school year by assisting them in developing work skills and giving them the opportunity to gain work experience. Jobs include: stocking, washing tables, sweeping, panning trays of food and counting out items for lunch sides. The students enjoy working in the cafeteria and some have shared it is their favorite part of the day. We see smiles on their faces every day and confidence shining as they complete different job assignments. The staff has treated our students with total respect and continue to develop collaborative opportunities for them to be engaged. We are thankful for Aramark staff at OHS, who continue to impact lives every day. Thank you!
