Minnie Howie the Roaming Gnome Award

Goes to... Ms. Silva!


Mrs. Thomas writes...I nominate Marisa Silva. Ms Silva works tirelessly helping our ELL population, as well as general education students. She has organized parent conferences for her team, stayed after school with students, and welcomes all students into her Titan time to help with assignments. She is constantly promoting social activities for teachers and supporting staff. Recently She helped collect coats for students during our cold spell and is always willing to share a smile with everyone. Thank you Marisa!

Thank you Ms. Silva 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.

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!
