Finding TCA: Heather Appel :: Episode 21

Today on the podcast, our host Cynthia Yanof speaks with TCA parent Heather Appel about the TCA community, how they found the school, and what she and her family love most! Heather tells us about how her son asked where the chapel was at their public school after the kindergarten roundup and how he told her that he wanted to be able to pray at school. This kicked off their search for a Christian school. TCA's Christ-centered approach and academic excellence drew them in. But one of the biggest, unexpected blessings of the school has been the TCA community and the lifelong friendships that have blossomed both in the classroom and at outside activities. Heather tells about a friend's daughter who came to TCA as a junior and has also experienced the warmth and connection of the students in the Upper School. As a sub, Heather says it is amazing how the students in the Lower School share prayer requests and are openly praying for one another. From her experience, it is evident how the school is developing the whole child. Her favorite day in the Lower School is the Kindergarten French Café event. In Middle School, she is most impressed by the teachers and their approach to our kids and meeting them where they are in the awkward middle school years. Her advice to prospective parents is to embrace the uniqueness of TCA. Today's culture tells us one thing, but TCA encourages children to do the right thing. For veteran TCA parents, Heather reminds us not to take the MPACT prayer group for granted.

On today's podcast episode, our host Cynthia Yanof speaks with TCA Director of Campus Security David Smith. We learn about TCA's multilayer approach to keeping students safe, but even more, we hear his Campus Safety Team's commitment to our school. David Smith started at TCA in April 2018 and is a retired Dallas police officer with 32 years of experience in law enforcement. School safety has changed over the last 15 to 20 years, and the emphasis on safety has increased. Safety is extremely important to parents and our school administration. Campus safety and security begin with praying over our school, but we cannot be naïve; we must also be prepared. Because of the types of families at TCA, David says this changes his team's role from policing kids to protecting them. We have an Addison police officer on campus from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Campus Safety Team has grown, and we now have five full-time and one part-time employees who are all retired Dallas police officers. The combined experience of this team is over 150 years. The team is visible on campus in carpool and throughout the day. We have a new campus fence that will protect our campus after hours and during the day. The gate will help us provide safety and security on campus. All building doors on campus are locked as well. MS and US students have access cards or devices to access the doors. All LS students are escorted across campus. Visitors to campus must sign in and wear a name badge on campus. All classrooms can also be secured as well. We have a layered communications approach which includes training for all TCA employees with access to the PA system. The Campus Safety Team also monitors communication across campus, and TCA uses an emergency communications app and panic button through Titan HST. It is an invaluable communication tool for our campus. The safety attitude of the team is that they are the spear and the shield. They will put their lives on the line and put themselves in harm's way to neutralize any threat on campus and to keep our students safe. Please reach out to David Smith with any safety concerns.

On today's episode of the TCA podcast, our host Cynthia Yanof speaks with the Girls' Athletic Director and Varsity Basketball Coach Jeff Smith and Varsity Volleyball Coach Steve Collins to hear all about the girls' sports at TCA and about the varsity volleyball season. Jeff tells us about TCA's philosophy for girls' sports and how he works to advocate for girls' teams and ensure the programs get what they need. TCA's commitment to hiring great coaches and developing character through our programs sets us apart. TCA encourages girls to play multiple sports, leading to better athletes and helping our teams compete better. Our girls love to have fun with their teammates. The varsity basketball team is a young team but will return players Grace Leverton and Sophia Miller. There is a new TAPPS playoff format for basketball, and even though we are in a tough district, we are looking forward to a good season. The off-season starts after Labor Day and the the season starts in November. Steve Collins was a college baseball player but first played volleyball during high school in Singapore. His interest in volleyball continued with playing in USAV, and then he got into coaching. Volleyball tryouts began on August 1, and the season started quickly after. The varsity team plays 35-40 games during the season and about 20 games in the preseason. The team has already competed in several tournaments before school started. Coaching with Steve is Carlos Rosado, who is the assistant varsity coach; he grew up playing volleyball in Puerto Rico and played in college there. TCA's JV coach is Carlos Luna. He has played volleyball professionally and also in the Beijing Olympics. Our district is very competitive, and the team must play its best to win – there are no easy games. But that intensity builds and drives the energy for practice and the next game. Steve's favorite thing about coaching at TCA is the blending of academics, Christianity, and athletics. He asks Senior players to step up and lead the team. Encouraging them to communicate the standards and traditions to the younger players. The players develop the program with the coach's guidance. Some volleyball players play on a club team, but about half play other sports at school. For parents of younger girls interested in volleyball, Steve encourages playing volleyball either on the rec level or club level. There are many places to get involved in the sport throughout DFW. To wrap up, Jeff lists the girls' sports offered at TCA, including volleyball, basketball, dance, cheer, golf, softball, swimming, track, cross country and tennis. Jeff has an open-door policy stop by if you have a question or email him at jsmith@trinitychristian.org Our varsity volleyball season is underway. Come out and support our athletes!

In today's episode, our podcast host Cynthia Yanof connects with Head Football Coach Steve Hayes about the upcoming season. We hear about the Trojan football program, the theme for 2022, the players we have this year, our new division, and our coaching staff. The theme for this year is Fear No Man. The players, after the spring game, vote on the theme. The theme gives the coaches guidance on how to coach the boys. This theme has two components: 1) You have to be in the right relationship with the Lord. This places the emphasis on the kids' hearts and their relationship with Christ. 2) To have no fear, you must be extremely well prepared. The coaching staff read the book Draw the Circle by Mark Batterson this summer. The team is divided into families; each coach prays for the athletes in their family group throughout the season. Coaches are very intentional about praying for players, and Coach Hayes believes when we pray, good things happen. TCA football has six core values, one of which is that we are called to be standard chasers, not rule followers. God created us to excel and not be average. We want our kids to know they have what it takes and that high expectations require high commitment and sacrifice. This year's team is a young team. We had a lot of success last year and graduated many seniors. We have fourteen seniors this year, many of whom started last year, but we will see many new faces on the field this fall. We have talented juniors and sophomores. We had 45 college recruiters come through our program last spring is a good indication of the talent you have on the team. We have a good offensive line, a good running back core, and, with the addition of Defensive Coordinator Reid Waller, our defense has made huge strides and will be good this year. We have been in TAPPS Division 5 for the last two years, and this year we have moved back to Division 1, which includes schools with the largest enrollment in the state. Our district includes Nolan, Parish, Prestonwood, and Bishop Lynch. It will be a very competitive schedule this year, and our goal is to win the state championship. Our first game against ESD is on August 26 at 7 p.m. at Tom Landry Stadium. We have five home games and five on the road with one big road trip to Ft. Bend Christian. We have ten varsity football coaches on our staff. Five of these coaches have been successful head coaches in other programs. The faith and testimonies of our coaches are incredible, as well as their ability to coach and mentor kids. You should be excited about this program if you have sons in TCA athletics. We highly encourage boys to play multiple sports. It is good for kids to be able to experience as much as possible and represent the mission of the school well. Parents with children should be watching the leadership they put their kids under. We are limited on how long we can be an athlete, but athletics' impact on our character is lasting. We want our parents to live out the culture of our school. This is life-giving to the school and those around us. Come out and cheer loud at the games and celebrate on the field after the games! We do that better than any other school. This is Coach Hayes' third season back at TCA. He was also here from 2004 through 2014. His wife Mendy teaches in Frisco, and they have a daughter who is a TCA freshman on the volleyball team. He has two older married kids, and both are expecting babies next year which will be Coach Hayes' first grandchildren!

Today, in honor of Mental Wellness Month, our podcast host Cynthia Yanof speaks with psychologist Dr. Ken Wilgus about the struggles Christian kids may face. Dr. Wilgus has been in practice for over thirty years in the DFW area and specializes in the treatment of adolescents and their families. He works with TCA families on a regular basis. COVID is still contributing to stress in our kids' lives. Don't underestimate the amount of stress our children may be experiencing. If you are concerned about your child's stress level, the last year and a half are not indicative of how our kids will be. For younger kids, our parental role is teaching. Routines in our families are important including prayer and teaching the faith. For adolescents, our role shifts to training. Our kids are watching what we are doing as parents, not just what we say. Dr. Wilgus reminds us to talk to our kids about performance anxiety. With children, we can teach children to let go of performance and shift their mindset. If you have an anxious teen, you may want to take the approach of walking alongside them and coaching them through it versus saying “don't worry about it.” He also reminds us how important it is to encourage children of all ages to engage with friends. We need to teach them the importance of loyalty and investing in one or two close friends. Let your kids be friends with who they connect with naturally. Model the need for connection with your own relationships. We also hear about Dr. Wilgus' book Feeding the Mouth that Bites You and the theme of how to let go of the reins with teens. Parents may instruct, correct, and teach up until age 13. After age 13, you are parenting a young adult. Give them freedoms and let them begin to manage their own lives including their faith. Dr. Wilgus also discusses issues our kids struggle with including social justice issues, drug and alcohol use, cutting and suicide, and the discussions we should be having with our teens. Relationships with our children and teens are key to having a voice in their lives. Teach your children, and train and walk alongside your teens. We also want to remind you that TCA has three school counselors: Emily Eyre (LS), Shawn Ledebur (MS), and Rachel Armstrong (US). Our counselors offer short-term counseling and intervention for students on a variety of topics. They can also provide a list of Christian counselors if long-term counseling is necessary.

Today on So, You’re Having a Baby, we are joined by Cynthia Yanof from the Pardon the Mess Podcast.   We are chatting about what it’s like to bring a new baby home through foster care and adoption. We often talk on this podcast about pregnancy, but realize that may not always be possible for everyone and may not even be what some feel called to at all.   Foster care and adoption are such beautiful, important aspects of parenting, and we’d be remiss to not have someone on to speak to what it’s like to foster and adopt a newborn!
