Week-At-A-Glance Nov. 16-20, 2015

The Minnie Howard Campus of TC Williams HS

Every student succeeds!


Congratulations to Elena Greer! Ms Greer is the proud recipient of the

Titan of the Week Premium Upper Lot Parking Spot Award from November 16-20.

Thanks for showing your school spirit, Ms Greer!


How can you get the Titan of the Week Upper Lot Award? It is easy! Just wear Titan Gear or college wear on Fridays and your name will be entered into a drawing that morning. Each week in Ms Wood's Week-At-Glance the next week's winner will be announced.

Minnie Howie the Roaming Gnome Award returns this Friday! This traveling, "FUBU" award encourages staff members to celebrate the great things

(big or small) that we see each other doing. For fun and added recognition, Minnie Howie the Roaming Gnome will spend the week hanging out with the award

winner. Each Friday, the week's award winner will write up a short blurb/email celebrating the awesomeness of another colleague's actions, share that blurb via email and pass on Minnie Howie to the next recipient.

Brought to you by Titans Succeed / Renaissance Committee in appreciation of all that you do to make this a great place to work and learn.

Admin. Classroom Visits

The adminsistrative team has made a committment to student achievement through a school-wide focus on student engagement and a strong data process and monitoring system .

The team will be coming into classrooms throughout the year to conduct formal and walk through observations as well as 1-5 minute pop in visitis. Each visit is designed to collect data on our school-wide focus, provide support and feedback to the staff and allow the team to be a visible force within the school building for students and staff alike.

Please know we are working to build a safe and colleagial community of learners.

Monthly Fire Drills

The monthly fire drills will be random. The team will no longer announce fire drills to ensure we are practicing what needs to happen in the event of a real emergency.

Please remember the following during each drill...
  • Please make sure you instruct all of you classes on the procedures and etiquette for fire drills.

  • Please remember to lead your class out of the room for the fire drill. Once the

    alarm sounds, give quick and concise instructions, name a student to close the door and lead students to the field.

  • Upon re-entry of the building, instruct students to go directly to the class of origin regardless of time and change of periods (attendance should be taken when the entire class has returned to the classroom). In the event of a period change during a drill or an actual emergency, the administrative team will release students via the PA to their next class.

  • Attendance must be taken before, during and after drills and/or emergency situations to ensure all students whereabouts and safety.

We are ONE and as ONE we work together!
