Fail and Flourish: The Williams Research Greenhouse at Faith Lutheran

Posted by Stephen Blank on Jul 3, 2018 3:09:32 PM

“Why are we building a Greenhouse?”  A skeptical 8th grader asks.  The purpose of this greenhouse is bigger than the plants, but rather than getting knee deep in a philosophical discussion about best educational practices with a thirteen year old, I instead reply, “It will have fish...” Based on their reaction, the student is satisfied.

Posted by Karl Knorr on Mar 13, 2018 5:33:00 AM

As the Director of Social Norms here at Faith Lutheran Middle School & High School, I am passionate about helping our students avoid risky behaviors like drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and sex.  This January we have launched our Faith Facts campaign with renewed vigor to involve the entire Faith Family.  Faith Facts is a major undertaking that is part of a comprehensive ‘Avoid Risky Behaviors’ program.  To summarize the comprehensive approach, I will summarize it in three words ‘Danger, Data, and Divinity”.

Raising Exceptional Kids: Fostering Strength, Independence, and Resilience

Posted by Mark Cheney on Dec 19, 2017 5:40:00 AM

Adulting.  Failure to launch.  Safe spaces.  Microaggressions.  Snowflakes.  

A host of new terms has entered the vernacular to describe the actions, attitudes, and responses of Millennials and adolescents today.  Why are we seeing such a phenomenon?  More importantly, how can we raise strong, resilient, and independent adolescents who grow into well-adjusted adults?
