Weekly Newsletter

Friday – February 16th Newsletter

Hello TCS families. I hope everyone has had a good week. Galatians 6:9 says, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up”.  Our world, country, and community need us to be faithful in doing what is right and good. The Lord promises blessings for those who do. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you. Have a great weekend!

 

H.S./M.S. Chapel: 

Former TCS high school science teacher Mark Coulter spoke in chapel on Wednesday. He shared what God has been doing in his life and challenged students to be thankful and grateful in all of life’s circumstances. Mark is involved in a church-planting ministry in the Miami Valley Region of Ohio.

 

Food Drive:  

The TCS National Honor Society is sponsoring a food drive February 20-23.  The food will go to the Five Loaves Food Pantry sponsored by the Church at Allentown. Classes will be competing against each other to bring in the most cans (per student). The winning elementary class will receive an ice cream party. The winning high school/middle school class will receive a pizza party.

 

P.E. Equipment Grant:

In November, TCS teacher Megan Kinnear applied for grant money from an Allen County partnership called the “Activated School Challenge.” This challenge was developed and sponsored by Activate Allen County and St. Rita’s Health Partners/Mercy Health. Our school was one of six Allen County schools that were awarded $2,000 to put toward something that would either enhance or develop new or existing health and nutrition initiatives. Temple chose to apply for the money to receive new physical education equipment. We were able to purchase a 20 foot Gaga Ball pit, which can be used both indoors and outdoors. In addition, we were able to get some kid friendly gymnastics equipment, a tennis/badminton set, some balls and new hula hoops. The buzz around the school has been exciting. The children have been very eager to use their new P.E. equipment. The grant money has been a blessing to students, staff and administration. Thanks, Mrs. Kinnear, for leading this project.

 

Spring Sports Survey:

The athletic department sent out a survey to K5-12th grades this week regarding spring athletic opportunities. Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey to assist the athletic department as it plans for the upcoming spring sports season.  Here is the link for those that still need to complete the survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9SHVQVM 

 

Parent/Student Lunches:

The elementary had a great turn out Thursday for our parent lunch with the 3rd-5th grade students. The kids have really enjoyed this special time.

 

Vision and Hearing Screening Referrals:

 If your child received a referral form due to the hearing and vision screening results that were done this past fall, please turn in the form completed by your child’s physician to the elementary office. We have to submit a report to the state at the end of the year indicating the number of students who received referrals and the number of students who followed up with their physician and returned the forms to school. If you need a new form, please contact Mrs. Sweeney. 

 

Boys Varsity/J.V. Basketball Games:

The high school boys’ basketball teams will be playing two HOME games this weekend.  On Friday night, the boys will be playing Lehman Catholic in our last league game of the year. The J.V. will begin at 6:00 P.M.  The 3rd/4th grade boys will play at the half of the j.v. game and the 5th/6th grade boys will play at the half of the varsity game. On Saturday night, the boys will play Ada on our Senior Night! The J.V. will start at 6:00 P.M.

 

Junior High Tournament Games:

Congratulations to the junior high boys for defeating Elgin in the NWCC tournament before losing to Perry in the quarterfinals. Congratulations to the junior high girls for defeating Perry in the quarterfinals of the tournament before losing to Hardin Northern in the Semi-finals.

 

Junior High Track and Field Coach Needed:

We are in need of a junior high track coach. Please contact BJ McPheron at mcpheronbj@tcspioneers.org if you are interested in coaching junior high track and field.
