Friday – February 9th 2018

Hello TCS families. I hope everyone has had a good week. Psalm 84:10 says, “Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked”. It is a blessing for each of us to be a part of God’s family and to serve Him on a daily basis. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you. Have a great weekend!

H.S./M.S. Chapel:

A big thanks to our high school praise team for a great job in chapel last Wednesday. Our students led an excellent chapel, which featured music, testimonies, encouragement, and prayer time. It was a real blessing to see our student leaders ministering to their peers.

Elementary Chapel:

The sophomore class led elementary chapel today. Our elementary students enjoyed learning about obedience to God, parents, and teachers through the skit, rap, and fun game that the sophomores shared. We are so blessed to have the high school classes that lead and teach through fun interactive lessons and example.

Parent/Student Lunches:

The elementary had a great turn out Thursday for our parent lunch with the K4-2nd grade students. We look forward to having our parent lunch with the upper elementary (3rd-5th) on February 15th.

School Safety Drill:

Temple Christian School conducts safety drills each year so that our teachers and students can be prepared for an emergency situation where we must lock-down the building and classrooms in order to ensure our children’s safety. We will be conducting a school safety drill on Wednesday, Feb. 14th.

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.
