The Real Understanding of Completing an Education
Anger can motivate us to right wrongs, stand up for ourselves, and change the world. But unrestrained anger can damage your health, strain your relationships with family and friends, and blind you to consequences of rage-fueled words and actions.
We all get mad sometimes. Don’t let your anger get out of control, though. Count to 10, and try some of these anger management tips:
- Recognize your stress. Anger is a symptom of stress, but often we react to the symptom—a hurtful comment or a malfunctioning computer—instead of the underlying cause (our fears or frustration). Pay attention to your mood and physical symptoms—perhaps a clenched jaw or shortness of breath—so you can direct your response apropriately, not at the nearest target.
- Take a time-out. If it’s at all possible, back away from stressful situations before anger overwhelms you. Use the time to regain control of your emotions: Breathe deeply, relax, and think through the situation. Is this really worth getting upset over? Will the problem make a difference in six months or even tomorrow?
- Adjust your perspective. Before you explode at your co-worker or family member, turn your point of view around. Did she mean to annoy you? Does she have a legitimate point? A careless comment does’t have to start a war?
- Communicate your feelings. No one can read your mind, and other people may not realize how you feel or what you want from them. Explain your point of view as calmly as you can, using I-statements: “I got angry when you said _____ because ___” instead of making an accusation: “You never want to do things my way!” Concentrate on finding solutions, not winning the argument.
TRUCE Learning Center Moves to New Alternative Learning Center
We are extremely excited about our new home. The new TRUCE offices and classrooms are located in the new Alternative Learning Center (ALC) at 1101 Merritt Street, formerly A. V. Cato Elementary.
There are many new features to the building and the classrooms in particular. These features were selected to make sure students had access to state of the art technology. In addition, several security elements have been added, and many new features improved the overall energy efficiency of the building to significantly reduce our energy costs.
Thank you to everyone who visited the Alternative Learning Center during our Open House on
Skyward Family Access
Family Access is a web-based application that gives parents and guardians online access to their child's grades, assignments, attendance, Child Nutrition account balance, schedules, emergency information, and more.
