Teacher Morale

1-15-16

MEMBERS PRESENT: D. Akin, V. Barber, M. Brumbeloe, A. Butler, E. Constant, S. Davis, J. Pilgrim, S. Robertson, V. Stewart, K. Stuart, K. Woodard
ITEMS DISCUSSED:
• 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 the ACT:
 18-22
 23-26
 26-30
 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 opposing team.
• 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.  

11-9-15

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" '  

10-12-15

Meeting discussed the above ideas again. Duty free lunch, and extra "jeans" day, and Lunch being brought in more often were discussed.

 

 

Campus Beautification Supgroup

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.

 

Minutes:

Old Business:

We had walked around the school grounds to ID areas of need first.

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.

 

New Business:

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.

Summary

 

TREES

 

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 line.

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

Attendance

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.
