Twice a year, each faculty and staff member is invited to nominate a student for the Buccaneer Spirit Award. The student may be one who works hard or who is the most improved student with which the teacher has worked that term. The students nominated are invited to a pizza party. While there, door prizes are drawn and several students win $10 movie gift certificates. The fall-term Buc Spirit party was held in the library on Nov. 22.
To help defray expenses incurred by the family of Chris Pennell, a Buc who recently succumbed to a heart infection, HHS hosted a jean day fundraiser on Nov. 22. Students, faculty, and staff were invited to wear blue jeans by donating a minimum of $3. The response was amazing, with total donations equaling $4000. Thanks to everyone who was able to participate, including the first block classes who met the challenge of 100% participation proffered by Mrs. Weaver's first block. Pictured here are faculty/staff who worked with Chris (l-r Connie Chavis, Lacey Shelton, and [far right] Robin Iman) and Chris's mother, Syble Thomas (third from left).

Senor David Brown
Congratulations to our Haughton High School December Teacher of the Month Senor David Brown. Senor Brown has been at HHS for three years; prior to that he taught at Captain Shreve. He has a master’s degree in psychology from Ohio State University. His hobbies are reading, exercise, and playing guitar.
Hardly anybody knows I have owned over 50 web sites.
Life has taught me things often don’t work out the way you plan. SO you need to be adaptable.
The best decision I made in the past 5 years was to apply for a job at HHS.
My advice to our students is to not give up when there is an obstacle in your way. Use the resources available to you to find a way to overcome it.
Nothing makes me laugh like the movie Ishtar.
The best part of my job is getting to spend time with all of the amazing students we have at HHS. I push them to be better students, and they push me to be a better teacher.
I am currently reading World After by Susan Ee in English and El Secreto del Tio Oscar by Fernando Trujillo en espanol.
The best teaching advice I ever got from a teacher was to read Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut.
My favorite quote is something Helen Keller said, as reported by her teacher Anne Mansfield: If I suggest her leaving a problem in arithmetic until the next day, she answers, “I think it will make my mind stronger to do it now.”
Three words that describe me are: Intense, Determined, and Responsible
Congratulations to Senor Brown!
(The HHS Teacher of the Month award is part of the school's Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports [P.B.I.S.] program. Each teacher selected receives a certificate and $25 in gift cards, sponsored by the HHS Library).
