Weekly Newsletter

Friday – January 10, 2020

Hello TCS families. Welcome back and Happy New Year to everyone. We look forward to an exciting 2020. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you. Have a great weekend!



Re-enrollment for the 2019-20 school year is scheduled to begin on February 10th. We look forward to the opportunity of continuing to minister to your family in the upcoming school year. Thank you for choosing Temple for your children. We consider it a blessing to partner with you in your child’s education.


EdChoice Scholarship Renewal:

Renewals for EdChoice Scholarships begin on February 1st. This includes the EdChoice Traditional and EdChoice Expansion Programs. Renewal applications have not yet been released by the Ohio Department of Education, but they should be available soon. Please see Amy Link in the elementary office for information about renewing your EdChoice Scholarship. The deadline this year is April 15th.


K5 Classroom Activity:

This week, the K5 did a gingerbread man theme. After we read the story, we tracked down where our gingerbread men went, iced them, and ate them. It was lots of fun! Next week is a pajama party on Friday, complete with a winter movie, hot chocolate and doughnuts. We like to keep January fun.


1st Grade Classroom Activity:

The first grade class is learning about how substances move. On Thursday, the students enjoyed feeling the differences between three substances: syrup, molasses, and oil. The students made a hypothesis about which substance would move the slowest and which would move the fastest when poured into a cylinder. The class timed and recorded their results. This was a fun (and sticky) experiment!

College Credit Plus Courses:

Several TCS students are taking advantage of the state’s CCP Program, which allows students to take college courses for dual college/high school credit at no expense to the students. Examples of courses being taken by Temple students this year are as follows: Composition I, Composition II, Composition and Literature, Classical Literature, Technical Writing, Public Speaking, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Calculus, Chemistry, Medical Terminology, American History, Cultural Anthropology, Music Appreciation, Music History, General Psychology, Sociology, Spreadsheets Software, Computer Applications in the Workplace, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Students are taking courses through OSU Lima, UNOH, Rhodes State, and Cedarville. An informational meeting regarding the College Credit Plus Program for the 2020-21 school year will be held on January 30th at 6:30 P.M. in the high school lunchroom.


HS/MS Christmas Music Concert:

Congratulations to Mrs. Brokaw and all of her Band and Choir students for the excellent band and choir Christmas program that took place before our break.
