Yesterday, all employees received an email from FCPS Survey with a link to the 2021-22 School Year Calendar Survey. Parents have also been invited to take a similar survey. Your participation is essential. The survey results will be used to inform and support FCPS staff and the School Board, as they work to adopt the 2021-22 School Year Calendar. We realize that many of you are understandably focused on Return to School information. If you are able to weigh in on the calendar survey as well, we would greatly appreciate it. All responses are confidential. Please email any questions to FCPSsurvey@fcps.edu.#OurFCPS Faces: Steve Campbell
It’s all in the family for Steve Campbell, a document services technician. Steve's mother worked for many years at the Sprague Center in the film library, and his brother worked as a PONY/warehouse driver.
Steve has been with FCPS for 28 years. He started in Forms Management and later moved to the Instructional Services Department print shop when it was in its early days. Now, they print items for nearly every school, office, and department across the school division.
Steve is a one-man shop. He handles tasks including promotion, logging in jobs, scheduling, printing, binding, and shipping. He prints forms, in-service materials, teaching materials, as well as many other items.
In 2019, Steve was a nonschool-based finalist for the FCPS Outstanding Operational Employee award. Here's an excerpt from his nomination:
"Employees like Steven Campbell bridge the gap between heartless machines and the hardworking staff of FCPS. Compassion, kindness, heart, and of course service comprise the parts of a man dedicated to serving others with the efficiency of a machine, but a heart big enough for several men. Whether it’s serving local charities, being a single dad to his two kids, or rushing a print shop order through for the students and faculty of FCPS...Steven Campbell shines."
Steve has also received multiple FCPS Cares recognitions. Janice Bonner, his supervisor, says, “No matter how busy he is, Steve Campbell always seems to come through for us! [...] He's amazing, so easy to work with, and always willing to go the extra mile to get the job done for us. Steve truly understands and provides great customer service!”
Once schools closed due to COVID-19, regular printing jobs stopped. But it gave Steve a chance to help with distance learning. He adds, "I helped with the initial planning of getting printing vendors set up and ready to print the massive amounts of packets and send them to the students at home." He printed and mailed learning packets for middle school, special education, and ESOL students.
Steve says his perfect day would include off-roading in his Jeep. Also, every year, he donates time to Valley Bikes for Tikes, "building hundreds of bikes" in just a few days for children in need.
We are so fortunate to have you as part of the FCPS family, Steve. Please stay for at least another 28 years!Sleepy Hollow ES Teacher Pays Off Student Lunch Debt
