How we want to be with each other
TEAM stands for:
T: Talk it out.
E: Everyone counts.
A: Appreciations, not putdowns.
M: Make it fair.
Communication, Conflict Resolution, Cooperation
In the summer of 2000, The Learning Community School was one of the first schools in the area to adopt a new conflict mediation curriculum developed by the Asheville Mediation Center. This curriculum involves weekly lessons, exercises, games, and conflict mediation skills. The TEAM format provides a successful mechanism for handling conflicts that might arise at school. The TLC Board and faculty feel that the skills learned in the TEAM curriculum support and embrace the community focus of our school; therefore, we utilize and integrate this important knowledge into our school day.
I would like to appreciate Mitzi for her calm, sweet, peaceful, and patient way in the K/1 classroom. She is the best!
We appreciate Kiersten for helping settle the K/1 classroom into their new handwashing routine each morning; John, Dan, and Meggan for helping in the morning carline; and Daisy for her office/recycling/trash support!

TLC is even more of a home this year than it used to be!
I feel so grateful for this school. My kids come home happy each day!
