Titan-of-the-Week & Minnie Howie Roaming Gnome Award

Titan of the Week:

Titan of the Week is Ms. Reynolds!!

Ms. Reynolds was caught rocking her Titan Gear Friday. Thank you for showing your school spirit and Titan Pride!!! Enjoy the Titan of the Week premium parking spot! :)

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

Goes to... Ms. Al-Hanooti!

Ms. Grier writes... I would like to nominate my co-teacher, Ms. Shayma Al-Hanooti! From the first day of the school year until today, Ms. Al-Hanooti has impressed me with her ability to consistently hold ALL students to high academic standards of excellence! She insists that EVERY student put forth his or her best effort at ALL times. She supports students by arriving early in the morning and staying late in the afternoon on a daily basis. Also, I believe our students can truly appreciate Ms. Al-Hanooti’s love for English (I know I do)! She has quite an extensive knowledge of not only the literature itself, but of the cultural and historical backgrounds as well. She constantly researches new information on literature and pedagogy. In her leisure time, she attends cultural events to meet authors and learn about new, upcoming stories! Her passion for literature and education is undeniable! In addition to being a literary expert, she is an advocate for student involvement in extra-curricular activities. In fact, she is currently working on educating students about the water crisis in Flint, Michigan in order to raise funds and awareness. Finally, our students are very fortunate to have a teacher who not only demands the best from them, but demands the best from herself. She not only knows her craft but continues to work very hard at perfecting it! Great job Ms. Al-Hanooti! You most certainly deserve recognition for your hard work and dedication!

Thank you Ms. Al-Hanooti for being AWESOME!!!

If you were wondering...

What is the Minnie Howie Roaming Gnome Award?

This award gives us another way to recognize and celebrate each other. Minnie Howie is passed on from person to person each week.

What do you do when you receive the Minnie Howie Roaming Gnome Award?

Prominently display the award in your classroom or office. You can even brag a bit and carry Minnie Howie with you when you travel the building.

When and how do you pass Minnie Howie to the next awesome colleague?

At the end of the week, write up a short celebration blurb in which you name the next awardee and share a few things about him/her that you want to recognize and share. Send the blurb to Ms Wood for her Sunday "Week-at-a-Glance." On Monday morning, deliver Minnie Howie to the awardee.

And the cycle continues...

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.

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!
