COMPOSURE

Composure is showing self-control and patience.

I leave you peace, my peace I give you. I do not give it to you as the world does. So don’t let your hearts be troubled or afraid. John 14:27

Teachers use many strategies in the classroom to help students learn to calm themselves based on each child’s individual needs. Children have an inner world built on their ability to control, understand, and connect their feelings with what is going on around them.

In the home, parents are encouraged to teach self-calming strategies such as relaxation breathing and taking a break from a frustrating activity. 

In 2018, Trinity’s Elements of Success program was nominated as a Powerful Practice by the National Lutheran School Accreditation (NLSA) validation team.
