Howler Hub

New Teacher/Staff Edition

Welcome to our Staff!!

We are so glad you have joined our staff here at Cypress Creek! One of the many consistent processes we have here at CCMHS is a weekly, digital, staff newsletter called The Howler Hub! This is sent every Friday during the school year and just a few times during the summer months to keep you up to date on events. The Howler Hub that is sent out each Friday during the school year focuses on events for the week ahead. It also outlines important time sensitive information and “action required/requested” items for faculty and staff. Instead of sending out numerous emails during the week from several different administrators, we work to put information that is necessary to communicate to the entire staff into The Howler Hub. All we ask is that you read it each Friday and take any actions requested in a timely fashion. A second feature of The Howler Hub is a “Voice & Choice” link. This link is in each edition of The Howler Hub. This serves as a way that anyone can communicate a question, concern, idea, suggestion, etc…to administration. All we ask is that you provide your name so that we can work with you and ensure that you know that your voice is being heard! We are giving you a taste of that with this first Howler Hub! If, after reading The Howler Hub, you have a burning question, please click on the link and ask! We will get back to you immediately with a response! We hope this first Howler Hub answers most of your questions and gives you an overview of the Coyote Life here at CCMHS! We look forward to meeting you face-to-face this summer!
