Staff Link for Teacher/SRP of the Month

For those of you using canvas, we encourage you to post the following student link in your course page. The student link is different only in that it does not include SRP. Many teachers would love to hear positive feedback from students, so it is important that we get the word out to them!

You may have noticed this board by the admin conference room! This is another way that we can provide thanks for those who are working so hard or help us along our GHS journey. ALL staff are encouraged to grab a Buc Note and complete it for a colleague. Here are some highlights from last week:

Jennifer Wood bragged about Kelly Seltzer: Thank you for doing such a great job with the Rigor presentation!

Rob Strasser bragged about Todd Byers: Greeting each and every car rider with a smile, "good morning" or well wish. Excellent way to start the day for ALL Bucs!

Haley in the Front Office bragged about Jessica Pitkoff: Thanks for everything lately! (: You're doing a great job!

Steve Page bragged about Commander McGuire: Thanks for giving your time (and the use of your car!) for a student who needed help!
