Itís time for a new school year!† (I feel an earthquake from parents jumping up and down!)† I know every student is excited to begin.† (Now, now, you know you are! J)† Dillon Christian School is pleased to have your child enrolled in our school, and it will be my pleasure to instruct your children in the Bible.† Please allow me to introduce myself.
MY TIME AT DCS
My name is Lanny Carpenter, and I am in my 11th year at DCS.††† In addition to teaching, I have also been heavily involved in the athletic program of our school, as head coach of Junior Varsity Boys basketball for 10 years, and coaching or assisting other sports.† This year I am teaching 6th and 8th grade Bible, 7th and 8th grade PE, assistant Athletic Director, and computer troubleshooter for the teacherís computers.
I hail from the great
state of Louisiana.† My twin brother
(Danny, who, incidentally, is a missionary to Venezuela) and I have literally
been in church all our lives.† At the age
of eleven I accepted Jesus
I love the Word of God!† It is my passion to teach Godís Word every chance I get, and I desire to instill my love for the Bible in my students.† I really want them to know the Bible so that they may know the God of the Bible.† It is my belief that we must inspire our children to study, understand, and live Godís Word.† To know Christ as their Savior, each student must have the Scriptures taught to them and the Holy Spirit moving upon them.† So I pray that this will be a spiritually productive year, with the Bible producing much fruit in the lives of the students.
This year I am sharing room 302 with Mrs. Pat Hudec.† My classes are the first three periods, and hers is the last three.† It is important to both of us that the room be kept neat and straight at all times.† Our desks are on the same side of the room, and that side of the room will be off limits to the students.† Following below I will list my other classroom rules.
1.†††††† Respect God, teachers, fellow students, and self.
1. Come to class with proper materials (including homework).† You cannot leave class to get materials.
2. Tardiness will not be tolerated.† Because my classroom is upstairs, I expect you to give yourself plenty of time to get here.
3. No talking without teacherís permission.
4. Raise hand to receive permission to speak or to get out of your seat.
5. No gum, candy, food, or drink will be permitted in the classroom.
6. Be familiar with the Student Handbook and the guidelines of the school.
Teacher reserves the right to amend these rules or add new ones as needed.
