Crockett Starts "Thank You" Campaign

The effect that a simple but heartfelt “Thank You” can have when it comes from a student to a teacher or staff member is often profound!

Starting November 18, students will be able to anonymously thank a Crockett faculty or staff member that has made a positive impact on their lives.

The “CHS Tribute” initiative will allow students to use the new audio recording area of the library (with recording carrels created by Construction students) to create a short audio file shout-out, telling how a Crockett adult has helped them. These MP3 tributes will be uploaded and sent directly to the teacher/staff member via Google Drive. If they prefer, students may submit a written tribute.

Students interested in recording a tribute should stop by the Circulation Desk in the Library before or after school, during lunch or during an off period.

Crockett High School Named by MarylandCan as one of Nation's Best Schools

From the MaylandCan Report: (page 26)

Public high schools elsewhere have proven that it’s possible for our students to perform at higher levels. Across the country, there are non-entrance criteria public high schools proving that poverty doesn’t have to dictate outcomes. There’s so much we can learn from these success stories.

To drive this conversation, we set out to find high schools that are successfully serving large percentages of low-income students by breaking the link between poverty and low academic achievement. We sought out and accessed as much data as we could about high schools from around the country with high rates and that take the SAT has their primary test. We were only able to find 10 schools that serve similiar populations and do not have an entrance criteria. Among those, 9 of the 10 turned out to be charter schools. We examined the data, spoke to their leaders, and listened to their stories. At these schools, SAT scores are higher than they are at any non-entrance criteria high schools in Baltimore. College matriculation rates are higher. All these schools are getting so many things right. We can learn from their efforts, adapt and replicate what they do, and make Baltimore’s high schools as worthy of praise and accolades as those featured here. What follows are profiles of 10 schools that are beating the odds for kids from backgrounds similar to those of our students.

CONGRATULATIONS CROCKETT!!!! The comprehensive non-charter on the list!
The attached report highlights Crockett's SEL, Grading and Culture as major reasons for its success.

Crockett senior Justin Miller set the Austin school district’s career rushing record during a 189-yard performance against Bastrop on Thursday night. Miller trailed Anderson’s Paul Mosley by 140 yards at the beginning of the evening, but he eclipsed Mosley’s career mark of 4,054 yards during the third quarter of the Cougars’ 51-28 loss. The Crockett coaching staff will need to verify Miller’s stats from the game, but the third-year letterman had 3,914 rushing yards on his resume prior to the battle with the Bears.
