I got a Master's Degree from Saint Leo in Educational Leadership and I hope to finish a Master's in School Counseling this December!

Actionable Items

HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS: Action Required- Complete Survey

As part of our partnership with Equal Opportunity Schools, we are asking each staff member to take a 30-minute online survey designed to gather important information. The data will be presented back to us later this winter so that we can better understand how to build on what is already working to enhance equity in our school. Please use your staff email address as your login to the survey (see link below).

Phase 1: Climate Survey

This is the questionnaire regarding staff experiences, equity, barriers to advanced coursework, and staff assets. Often, people who don't teach work with or have their own children who are in classes. We are curious about both teaching and non-teaching staff’s valuable feedback and perceptions about student preparation for AP, the challenge of non-honors courses, and other key issues. For non-teaching staff, many questions have a "not applicable/do not know" option and the few that don't tend to provide an "other" response that staff can use to share that they don't currently teach and so don't have an opinion.

Please be as honest and frank as you can. This information will NOT be tied back to you or used for evaluative purposes.

Phase 2 will be completed in October

Students will be taking the EOP surveys on Monday through the Social Studies department.

Submit a Faculty Howlout!

“Faculty Howlout’s will drive our selections for Staff Member of the Week. Each week we will announce all of our HS and MS Coyote staff members of the week! These staff members will have their names announced on the intercom on Friday. At the end of the quarter the Staff Members of the Week will be invited to a special luncheon in their honor! We look forward to receiving numerous staff shout outs so we have many to select from each week!”

Click here to submit!

Submit a Student Howlout!

Student howlouts will drive our selections for Student of the Week. Each week we will select two HS and two MS students as the Coyotes of the Week. At the end of the week these students will be invited down to the flag pole in the center of the courtyard where we will have a Coyote Flag to be raised on Friday. These students will get the honor of raising the flag each Friday, and will have their names announced on the intercom! At the end of the quarter we will have a breakfast for all of our Students of the Week and their parents.
