Right at School is an after-school program that was brought to Duncanville ISD this year. It gives parents and guardians the convenience of after school care at the campus their child attends.
As teachers, administrators and parents, I know we all empathize with those effected by last week’s shooting at a Florida high school. In the days that have followed, many of you have likely thought about our own children and students, co-workers and teachers
Dr. Andy Lee doesn’t have to travel far to remember the good times he had in high school. Lee’s ophthalmology practice is located just a few miles from Duncanville High School where he competed on the swim team and graduated as salutatorian of his class in 1985.
An entire team of teachers and students worked together to create magic for Duncanville Parks and Recreation’s Willy Wonka-themed Daddy Daughter Dance.
Congratulations to all of our student-athletes who participated in National Signing Day. A total of 14 Duncanville High School football players received more than $1 million in scholarships.
Sharon Holan (Library Media Specialist) at Brandenburg Intermediate nominated by Brandenburg Principal Tamra Thompson
• Librarian but wears MANY other hats to support the kids at her school
• Youth and Government - At the beginning of the year, Ms. Thompson sent an email to see if anyone would volunteer to help with Youth and Government. She quickly responded and has been successful with the students. We have a small group, but Mrs. Holan will be joining them in February when they go to compete in Austin. The YMCA that sponsors YAG held a meeting where she was the only one to show up. Because of her commitment, they decided to sponsor a portion of the trip for our students. Additionally, she has secured an additional sponsor to cover the rest of the students.
• Monthly Breakfast - Each month we have a breakfast every 1st Friday for our Dad’s and another Friday for moms. By the time I make it to school each Friday morning, the library is decorated and set up for the parents along with a selfie station to support the theme. We don’t ask her to set it up, she just takes the initiative to do so. • GATE - Students use the library for projects and she is always available to assist. When students mention interest or she finds out the topics, she prints resources and ideas to help the students.
• Tutoring - She has volunteered to open the computer lab every morning for students so they can work on i-station. Not only did she volunteer, she created the schedule, typed the letters, followed up with parents and teachers, and she is available like clockwork every morning encouraging the students to use the lab.
• Reading – She reads to students in class. A group had been asking her to read to them so she built the time into her schedule to do so. She has also already ordered the next book due to the interest she has created with the kids.
Adina Johnson (Campus Monitor) Safety & Security at Duncanville High School nominated by Safety and Security Supervisor Jesse Ruffin
• Ms. Johnson really does enjoy her job. What’s most important is that the students love and respect her for doing her job.
• Mrs. Johnson has substantial “people” skills. I have seen her converse with senior members of the team and Administrators with equal ease and charm. As she once said to me, “You don’t learn anything while you’re talking.”
• She knows most, if not all of the student by name. If a problem arises, and a student needs to be identified, “who you going to call? Ms. Johnson.”
• Her positive energy is contagious. Her energy will rub off on her co-workers. The staff and students feed off her positive energy flow. • Mrs. Johnson has substantial “people” skills. I have seen her converse with senior members of the team and Administrators with equal ease and charm. As she once said to me, “You don’t learn anything while you’re talking.”
Isioma Jonah – (Kindergartner) Bilhartz Elementary nominated by Bilhartz Teacher Brittany Shockey
• Isioma goes above and beyond to help other students.
• She looks for ways to help other students learn.
• She is kind and willing to help students and or teachers in any way. • Isioma has really taken initiative with helping another student in the classroom.
• She helps him write, answers questions, guides him to where he needs to go, and encourages his learning. • She is a true leader in the classroom.
