Hello TCS families. We trust that the school year is off to a good start for you and your family. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you.
School Parent Alert Messages:
If you have not been receiving Parent Alert text messages from the school, please contact the school office at 419 227-1644. If TCS students would like to receive the alert messages, they must provide the office with their cell phone number.
In order to assist us with our communications, please contact the main office if you have had a change in your address, email, or phone number.
Order your 2018-2019 TCS Yearbook now through 11/23/2018, and receive four free icons when you purchase a name personalization. Yearbooks are $40. Name personalization is $5, which includes four graphic icons of your choice, for a limited time only. Order forms are being sent home with students and also available online. You can order your copy by filling out the form and returning it to either office or directly to Mrs. Searcy, with cash or check payable to Temple Christian School (memo: yearbook). You can also order online if paying by card at www.jostens.com.
There will be no school on Monday, Sept. 3rd, due to the Labor Day holiday.
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.
Witness Wear order forms are due today, 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 in both offices.
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.
Positive Referral Donations needed:
Each week in grades 6-12, we recognize a student for his or her positive contributions to the TCS atmosphere. Would you be willing to donate $10 Gift Cards for these students? 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 @ firstname.lastname@example.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.)
