WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL - ADVENT TERM 2014
Welcome to the 2014 – 2015 school year! Our commitment at Trinity Lutheran School is to provide a safe, positive, intellectual learning environment that will empower students to become creative problem solvers, critical thinkers, and inspired learners prepared for high school, college, and life in the twenty-first century.
As we enter the 2014/15 academic year, we would like to continue setting high expectations for our students in regards to academic performance within the classroom, participation in co-curricular activities as well as responsible citizenship at school and in the community. We are asking each student to make a commitment by being active participants in their learning and acting responsibly as an individual within our learning community. Doing so will enable all to have a successful and enjoyable school year.
Our staff have participated and taught how to use Google Applications to plan their lessons to allow for more real time collaboration with their students and increase their 21st century learning experiences.
It is an exciting time, but it can also be challenging with the increase in workloads and the social adjustment to being on a larger campus and having multiple teachers through the course of the day. We encourage you to do the following so you can be successful in your transition and time in the coming terms:
- Communicate with others in a respectful and meaningful way.
- Pose questions, examine possibilities, and challenge yourself to find solutions.
Fires can and do happen just about anywhere. The goal of this Fire Safety Training was to provide a knowledgeable understanding on the origins of fires, sources of fires, how to protect yourself and how to prevent fires from occurring. This Fire Safety Training course gave a good understanding of fire safety, including an understanding of the variety of elements that can come together to make a fire, including static and electrical discharges, friction, vapor pressure, chain reactions, and flash points. This is important because if you can understand the many different ways a fire or explosion can occur, and have the knowledge to mitigate these circumstances, this will go a long way in creating a safer work environment for you and those around you.
