Hello TCS families. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you. Have a great weekend!


Spring Musical:

The TCS spring musical will take place on April 11-13. The students will be presenting Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Please make sure to mark your calendar for this exciting event. Thanks you to Mrs. Brokaw and Mr. Hill for all of their efforts in preparing our young people for this entertaining production.


Track and Field Registrations:

K5 – 12th Grade Track and Field Registrations will begin next week. Please look for information from Mr. McPheron. We encourage our students to participate. We especially need our high school students to participate in track this year. The OHSAA requires all member schools to have two sports each season, so we need to have a boys and a girls track team this spring. Thank you in advance for your participation.


Book Fair:

How do good readers become great readers? Practice! Every spring we host a Scholastic Book Fair to make it easy to put terrific books in your child’s hands. This year’s book fair will be open March 5-8. As always, we are looking for volunteers to help set up, run and tear down the book fair. If you are available to help for a few hours some time that week, please contact Amy Link in the elementary office at 419-227-1644, ext. 1 or linka@tcspioneers.org. Thanks!


Sixth Graders “Travel” to Ancient Greece:

The sixth graders recently completed a unit about ancient Greece where they became Greek citizens and competed in the annual Greek Olympics as city-states. The Olympics involved various competitions such as hoop shoot, paper airplane design, jump rope, and a domino building competition, just to name a few! City-states were also awarded points based on scholastic achievements throughout the Olympics. In addition, the citizens enjoyed creating masks for the Greek dramas they performed. Congratulations to Hewitt Wright, Emily Ketcham, Moriah Szuch, and Malachi Menke from the city-state of Gorgippia for winning gold at the Olympics!


Temple Music Department Activities:

Lydia Bassett, a junior, performed a Class A violin solo at the District 3 OMEA HS Solo and Ensemble Contest and received a rating of “1” (Superior). She did a fantastic job, and her judge praised her openly when she finished playing. Congratulations, Lydia!

Several student groups contributed music to the home basketball games this season, including the TCS Pep Band and the following performers of the National Anthem: 8th graders Jessica Holloway and Hailey Smith, the TCS HS Choir, and a Senior Ensemble (under the direction of Dakota Clay) for last week’s Senior Night festivities.

The MS Choir students have just completed a month-long “Arts in Entertainment” project where they combined music, drama, and other fine arts to create stories and video presentations. Each student had to write their own story, and the results have been very “entertaining”!

Band students in grades 6-12 have received subscriptions to a popular music education platform called “SmartMusic.” The SmartMusic app enables them to listen to pieces they are learning in band class and then record themselves playing along with them.

Over 40 Temple students have roles in the spring musical, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Rehearsals are underway for this very fun production. The performances will be held Thurs.-Sat., April 11-13.


Honey Gram Fundraiser:

The senior class would like to thank everyone who helped make their Honey Gram fundraiser a success. They raised more than $1,100 toward their senior trip and had a great time loving on your children. We have had several people still wanting to buy the t-shirts that the seniors sold. Please stay tuned for more information if you are interested in purchasing one. Remember, these can be worn on Witness Wear days. Once again, thank you to all who helped the senior class.
