This Clap Out Tribute To Peterborough Custodian Mr. Hilts Is Awesome

The "clap out" is a cool tradition at many schools for Grade 8 students moving on to high school.

What was extra cool about the clap out at St. John Catholic Elementary School in Peterborough on Monday (June 26th) was that retiring custodian Rick Hilts (aka "Mr. Hilts") was able to partake.

Custodians are the unsung heroes of schools, so this "clap out" was a terrific gesture to Mr. Hilts and his profession.
