Our beloved custodian

Not only does he work all day, but the students love him, and he loves the students. He does so much to keep Colonial School on track. This amazing person is Mr. Robert Benkwitt, our school hero.

Mr. Benkwitt has been working at Colonial for the past 13 years. Not only does he make our classrooms clean, but he puts a smile on everyone’s face. He will help anyone with anything and really tries his hardest to fix problems throughout the school.

Everyone loves him for what he does, and we thank him for all of that. He has made great memories and helped students and teachers in every way possible.

Mr. Benkwitt will retire at the end of this year, and at this time, everyone in the school is remembering all the wonderful things he has done for us. At Colonial, he will always be loved. No matter where he is, he will always be a part of the Colonial family.
