PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES NEXT WEEK

Wolf River Lutheran High School will be holding Parent-Teacher Conferences on Thursday, October 24th. Conferences will be held from 3:45 - 7:00 p.m. (Please do not meet with teachers before 3:45 p.m.). This conference is a time for students, parents, and teachers to discuss the progress thus far for the 19-20 school year. We know from experience that the best results for students happens when students, parents, and teachers are all working together toward the common goals. Although students, parents, and teachers do not need to wait until this Conference to talk to each other, this is a scheduled time for all to come together to do so.

TRAUMA SENSITIVE SCHOOLS (TSS) ONLINE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM

Next Friday, October 25th, the teachers will have a 2-3 hour professional development training on how student trauma, whether at home or school, affects student learning.


This is an Online Professional Development System from the Department of Public Instruction. It is for all parochial and public school educators. This is a free, online, on-demand system consisting of three primary components. Through this system, learners will understand the prevalence and impact of toxic stress on youth and those who care for them. Additionally, participants will understand how to infuse the values of safety, trustworthiness, choice, collaboration, and empowerment into various aspects of their existing equitable multi-level system of support. This infusion is what we call the trauma-infused lens.

Big picture

The learning system is broken into Universal and Tier II and III modules. For each module set, you will find:


  • FOUNDATIONS: These modules are meat to be viewed first and in order. They set the stage for the important prerequisite knowledge and skills needed before engaging in other individual strategies.


  • STRATEGIES & PRACTICES: These modules provide concrete ways to use the trauma-informed lens for various aspects of practice including social and emotional learning, self-regulation, relationship building and cognitive problem-solving. These modules can be viewed in any order, though we recommend the listed order.


  • SYSTEMS & POLICY APPROACHES: Finally, these modules focus on the systems and policy changes that are necessary to fully implement and sustain a TSS. They support areas such as school-wide behavior supports, discipline, and family engagement.

DROP-IN/STOP-IN TUESDAYS

Every Tuesday, starting on September 10th will be "Drop-In Tuesday". If you would like to visit your Lutheran high school, then come on "Drop-In Tuesday". If you know someone who has a child who would like to see their Association Lutheran high school, then come on "Drop-In Tuesday". If your middle school student or a middle school student from your congregation would like to shadow a Wolf River student, then come on "Drop-In Tuesday".


What is "Drop-In Tuesday" you may ask? "Drop-In Tuesday" is a day set aside each week of the school year from September through May when school is in session in which anyone may come to Wolf River Lutheran High School and get a tour of the building by one of the students. You don't need an appointment, but it would be helpful to call ahead so that we may prepare a bit.


See you on "Drop-In Tuesday" starting on Tuesday, September 10th. School hours are 8:00 a.m. - 3:20 p.m.
