• We made the following suggestions to use as motivation or
incentives for the ACT WorkKeys, the ACT Aspire, and the ACT.
o The Spirit Committee will make posters to put up around the
school encouraging students to do their best on the various tests.
The Library will donate poster board and markers.
o On ACT test days, offer snacks to the students, at the very least
give out hard candy. Otherwise, we could offer bottled water, and
possibly even set up a coffee bar. However, we would need to find a
donor for the snacks/drinks.
o Have drawings for students who score within certain ranges. For
example, there would be drawings for the following score ranges on
31 and up
o Pie-In-The-Face Pep Rally
If the overall school score is above a certain score
(number yet to be determined), have a Pep Rally with the
administrators getting a pie in the face.
At the Pep Rally, certain administrators would be asked to
wear the colors of the opposing team and to do battle cries for the
• For teacher morale, the suggestion was made that teachers
should be allowed to wear jeans on testing days.
Ideas were presented to help the morale of the teachers.
It was discussed that if teachers had more to look forward to that
it would keep a positive attitude and outlook among faculty and
staff. Some suggestions were: Team building activities Better
communication between administration and faculty Teacher "shout
outs" Duty Free Lunch Mentor teachers for everyone Ask others for
help Treats in Teacher boxes video sent through email (fun) Quotes
through email (uplifting) Personality test for faculty Work with
ROTC (utilize resources) The meeting ended with an agreement
that something needed to be done, but there was not a consensus on
the best way to start.
Members were asked if they had any questions, any ideas, double
checked sign in sheets. Members still would like the Duty
free lunch, more lunches brought in, and the extra jeans day as
incentives to give teachers a "boost" '
Meeting discussed the above ideas again. Duty free lunch, and
extra "jeans" day, and Lunch being brought in more often were
January 15, 2016
We signed up in our Community Group. From there Mr.
Britton and I (First Sgt Chambers) branched out in our
sub-group. We are the Beautification Sub-Group.
We had walked around the school grounds to ID areas of need
We had ID that the campus as a whole needed some picking up of
trash in several areas not normally cleaned up. We had the
JROTC cadets pick up these areas.
We ID that the stop signs in the front of the school needed to
have "2015" removed as well as the sign on the way in that states
the hours you may not turn left. I emailed Dr McGowin for his
guidance on the times he wants on the sign for a new one. The
hours on the old one are incorrect. Called City Hall to get a
POC to have a new sign made for No Left Turn. They gave me
the name and phone number. I tried it with no answer.
Will keep trying today and then get back on it Tuesday if still no
answer by the time I leave. We are attempting to locate
something that will take the "2015" off the stop signs without
having to have them replaced.
Broke away from community PLC to form a sub group of Continuous
Beautification group. We walked around campus and identified areas
to be worked.
Areas Identified :
Trash cans painted & have school logo put on it.
Walls by gym (outside) cleaned of gum
Signs on windows "No guns allowed" put up neater
Walls in Hallway In old gym cleaned
Walls outside of lunchroom hall way painted
Doors in lunchroom hallway painted
Windows in classroom covered neater ( curtains?)
Field across from school worked on clearing to stream.
It has been decided by several staff members that the trees in
the front of the school need to be cut down.
Roots are growing under the cement and headed to the water
SIGN FOR FRONT OF SCHOOL
Mrs. Shoun suggested that we put a sign up that will explain why
the trees will be taken down and maybe a picture that will show how
the new landscaping will look

Mrs. Shoun would like to make horseshoe prints on the way into
the school on the pavement
Mrs. Harrison says she will provide the information she has been
given from Susanne Goodin about attendance.
The policy is not being enforced, maybe, or credits are not being
lost and there is no follow through.
Mrs. Shoun wants to make a poster for each sport and put their
schedule up in each building. Mrs. Shoun would like to meet with
each booster club. She said she would head that up.
Mrs. Harrison would like to sell bricks to be placed in the
entry of the school.
We want to focus more on the culture of the school, and not just
the way it looks.
