School gives retirement party for custodian

May 5, 2014

LIVINGSTON, NJ — Harrison Elementary has seen a Louis and a few Louies in the school, but there was only one Lou in the form of Lou Caberson, the custodian who retired this week after three decades of service, according to The Alternative Press.

On Monday, April 28, students practically skipped with anticipation for the surprise party for "Mr. Lou," keeping quiet as Principal Cindy Healy made an "emergency" call, the article stated.

According to the article, when Mr. Lou opened the doors to the gym to see what the problem was, he was instead greeted by the cheers of 500 Harrison students, their teachers and much of the staff.

Students presented gifts fit for a handyman, filling a toolbox with everything from duct tape to bathroom soap, as well as hundreds of handmade keys created by the students with messages of gratitude, the article noted.
