Minnie Howie the Roaming Gnome Award

Goes to... The ALL of the OUTSTANDING Minnie Howard Teachers!

This week we take a short break of teacher nominations to recognized All of our OUTSTANDING Minnie Howard Teachers. It takes a person of strength, dedication, courage and humility to teach our students the lessons of content as well as the lessons of life.

You smile in the face of turmoil...

You are confident in face of unknowing...

You are strong in the face of fear...

You are supportive in the face of need...


You are Minnie Howard Teachers and your diligence and heart does not go unnoticed!

Thank you for All you do!!

Thank you Minnie Howard TEACHERS 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.

May 2nd: NO FACULTY Mtg.

Our May Faculty Mtg. will be scheduled to accommodate SOL training for the upcoming SOL administration.

All monthly information will be distributed via email. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask a member of the administrative team.

May 9th: Underclassmen Student Award nominations due to Administration

This year we will again recognize seniors and underclassmen in two separate evening ceremonies. The underclassmen recognition/awards program will be held on Monday, June 13, at 7:00 p.m. We are asking each department to recognize 3-5 underclassmen who you have determined deserve recognition. Department chairs are asked to meet with their teachers and select these 3-5 deserving students. Please submit your nomination forms to Deborah Johnson no later than Monday, May 9. Attached you will find a nomination form which should be completed for each recognized student. The form includes a fillable section for each nominating faculty member to write two or three sentences on the chosen student(s). It is imperative that this section is completed for each nominated student as these few sentences serve as reading notes for you or your substitute the night of the program.

Show your Titan Pride & Rock your Titan Gear Friday!!!!

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!
