Minnie Howie the Roaming Gnome Award

Goes to... Mrs. Paul!


Ms. Olufoye writes... I would like to nominate Jenny Paul for the Minnie Howie Award. She works diligently helping and supporting all of her students everyday, and particularly making the instructional process very meaningful to them. She has a consistent and contagious positive attitude as team leader of the Science department and her ability to build relationships with her students is incredible. She goes all out and waits after school to support the students making sure they understand the material. Even though some of her students have challenging behaviors, she manages them with patience and wisdom. She holds them to high academic standards of excellence every time they walk into her classroom. She constantly exhibits great leadership skills as team leader.

Thank you for all you do!

Thank you Mrs. Paul 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 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.

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!
