Maximum temperature ranges are between 45 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
Ventilation strategy: courtyards, Low-perimeter louvers, and clerestories in sloped roof
Strategy mechanism: The concept of thermal buoyancy and pressure differentials cause because of the two courtyards, as part of air flow moving up and part of it down, to form a large vortex leading to a very high-pressure build-up surrounding the building. This concept emphasis is drawing fresh air through low-level perimeter windows and louvers located behind the heating units and venting it through high-level clerestories in thesloped roof which act like thermal chimneys (see figure 6).
In 80% of the building, Carbon dioxide sensors and occupancy sensors automatically adjust louvers to control ventilation and conserve energy. In heating mode, the air passes over fin-tube water heating elements located at the perimeter louvers before it is introduced into the classroom

I am applying for $500 to begin various clubs for Landmark Elementary School. I would like to begin various clubs in my practicum school, such as a Lego Club, a Board Games Club, a craft club, and a crochet club. During the cold winter months, when the temperature gets very cold, often times children cannot go outside to play during recess and lunch hour. Many of the children have expressed interest in beginning clubs that each child could sign up for. During the cold days, when children cannot go outside, the children who have signed up for the clubs have an activity to do that allows them a time to get a break from their studies. The program gives children a chance to get involved in the school, and students a place where they feel they might belong and thrive. Help the students to learn valuable skills while allowing children a chance to explore various different interests. Participation in a supervised constructive activity limits the time that is available

According to the article from The Boston Globe, Josh Goldenburg, a student at Boston University, suffers from double vision and balance problems after jumping out of his house when an unexpected fire started. Universities in the Boston area don’t provide enough on-campus housing for the amount of students they accept, leading to terrible off-campus living conditions. Students are living with sometimes up to 12 people, making the houses overcrowded and living in closed off front porches and dining rooms. The owners of the house make rent very expensive because they know the kids don’t have anywhere else to live. A lot of the houses haven’t had inspections in years, causing the houses to have dangerous safety hazards and in cases like Goldenburg’s,
Imagine the chaos that could come from students being able to write about whatever they want in the school newspaper. Things that could hurt other people's feelings by writing about them or creating stories that bring students to argue about their opinions. Students should be limited on what they can say in a school newspaper because it invades people's privacy, creates conflict, and affects kids education.

With this intention, they want to create a greater sense of community, school pride and respect amongst students, and the hope to reduce disruptions because of inappropriate clothing(newlondon.org).” In this case, their efforts have paid off. According to the 2015 The Day article titled, New London High School no longer a 'turnaround school'. No longer does New London High represent a position in the lowest 5% of performing schools in the state(Bessette, Drelich 2015). The Day article also reflects upon the Principal's comment regarding the school's academic improvement, it reads, “We knew if we focused on the right things, then good things would happen(Bessette, Drelich 2015).” In effect, this could be due to a number of reasons, from sharpened academics and improved behavior to a change in attitude. With this in mind, the captivation of uniforms seems to have guided the school and the students in a positive
Sore calves, hallway traffic, and tardiness to classes are all common issues among the Mount Carmel Academy community, especially for those travelling to the fourth building. The fourth building has been a great addition to increasing the academics at Mount Carmel, but like every MCA students knows, the trip and traffic it takes to reach the fourth building has not been so stress-free. Upon every upcoming school year, we, girls at Mount Carmel, hope and pray that our schedule and class locations will accomodate our speed and abilities to get to class on time. Unfortunately, many students face the issue of having to travel from a classroom located somewhere in the first building, third floor all the way to a room in the fourth building, fourth
