Weekly Newsletter

Friday – August 24, 2018

Hello TCS families. We are excited about the beginning of a new school year. Thank you for choosing TCS.  We are grateful for the opportunity we have to minister to your family. Our mission at TCS is to glorify God by providing for students a Christ-centered education marked by excellence and grounded in Biblical Truth. We are trusting the Lord for a great year.  Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you.


Welcome new staff members:

Please welcome the following new staff members to TCS:  Molly Aregood (Administrative Professional), Julie Crites (Intervention Specialist), Lori Draper (Elementary Aide), Manuel Morales (H.S. Spanish), Kerri Motter (H.S Aide). We praise the Lord for His provision each year.


Student Medical Records/Information:

Please make sure that you have turned in all of the required medical and other required paperwork from the summer packet that is posted on our website www.tcspioneers.org. Packets are also available in the elementary office. Please remember that if your child needs to take any medication (prescription, over the counter, cough drops, etc.), they must have the medication and paperwork signed and turned into the office.


2018-19 Immunization Requirements for 7th and 12th grade students:

Incoming seventh graders for the 2018-19 school year are required to have a Tdap vaccination and the Meningococcal vaccine. The Meningococcal vaccine is also required for students entering 12th grade in the fall of 2018. This is a state requirement. Students without proof of vaccination can be subject to exclusion from school. One option that families have is a Teen Immunization Clinic for students entering grades 7 and 12, held at the Allen County Health Department on August 29th from 2:00pm-5:00pm. You can call the Health department at 419-228-4457 to schedule an appointment. Appointments are preferred. Walk-ins will be seen as time allows.


Witness Wear:

Witness Wear order forms are due on Friday August 31st. Our first Witness Wear day is September 5th. Students may wear old Witness Wear items or blue and white items, along with a pair of jeans on Witness Wear days until our new Witness Wear arrives.  Once our new Witness Wear arrives, students must wear the 2018-19 items. Old Witness Wear items and blue and white items will no longer be permitted. Order forms are available online. Also, order forms can be picked up from both offices. 


Student Government Elections:  

The following students have been chosen by their peers to represent their classes and the student body by serving as the TCS Student Government for the 2018-19 year:

7th Grade – Leyton Chambers and Elijah White

8th Grade – Caleb Kiser and Ethan Wright

9th Grade – Darrick Clay and Hunter Reprogle

2018-19 National Honor Society Officers:

Congratulations to Anna Acklin (President), Saige Biglow (Vice-President), Jonathan Acklin (Treasurer), and Brody Bowman (Secretary) on being named officers of TCS National Honor Society for the 2018-19 school year!


TCS Chapels:

You are invited to join us for either of our weekly chapel services.  The elementary chapel meets upstairs in the 4th grade room on Fridays at 8:15 A.M.  The middle school/high school chapel meets in our chapel room located just south of the gymnasium on Wednesdays at 8:15 A.M.  Mrs. Marshall, our elementary principal, says, “We are looking forward to a “treasure filled” chapel this year in the elementary. We will be on a quest to learn about what the Lord has for our lives! We are excited for the high school students to share lessons, our guest speakers, a fun curriculum, and praising Jesus with music and puppets.”


Positive Referral Donations:

Each week in grades 6-12, we recognize a student for his or her positive contributions to the TCS atmosphere.  Teachers can “write up” students for their positive actions and service to TCS, and each week they are entered into a drawing. Would you be willing to donate $10 Gift Cards for these positive referral winners? Last year we were able to reward 30+ students for their positive attitudes and contributions to their peers and teachers. If you would like to help, please notify Mr. McPheron at mcpheronbj@tcspioneers.org or drop off your donation of Gift Cards or Cash to the HS office (labeled “Positive Referral”).  Examples of Gift Cards (Taco Bell, Gas Stations, Menchies, Movie Theatre, Fast Food, etc.)
