Weekly Newsletter

Friday – January 26th 2018

Hello TCS families. I hope everyone has had a good week. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you. Have a great weekend!

Elementary Chapel:

The 5th grade class led the elementary chapel today. They did a terrific job of demonstrating the importance of being grateful for the Lord’s blessings. Students enjoyed singing along with puppets, watching the 5th grade as they put on a skit about being grateful, and learning about the ABC’s of thankfulness. Thank you to Mrs. Lawrence and her class for being great examples and leading us in chapel this morning.

Geography Bee:

Temple’s annual Geography Bee was held on Wednesday, January 24th. We had eighteen students in grades 4-8 participate in the Geography Bee this year. Ten students participated in the final round on Wednesday. Our third place winner was Emmanuel Powell who received a $10 gift card. Our 2nd place winner was Isaiah Kiser who received a $15 gift card. Our school champion was Caleb Kiser who received a $25 gift card and a championship medal. All eighteen participants enjoyed a pizza party on Tuesday.

Pioneer Rewards Luncheons:

At the end of each nine weeks, TCS rewards students who have had a record of positive behavior during that particular grading period. Juniors and Seniors had the opportunity to eat lunch today at Jimmy Johns, Mark Pi’s, Biggby Coffee, or Dunkin’ Donuts/Baskin-Robbins. Freshmen and Sophomores will have their lunch on Monday. Middle school students will enjoy snacks and games at a special Pioneer Rewards activity last period today.

Boys Varsity/J.V. Basketball Games:

The high school boys’ basketball team has two games this weekend. Friday night the boys are at Upper Scioto Valley for a big league game. Saturday night the boys will play a home game vs. Bradford. On both nights, the J.V games will only be two quarters in length. So please be aware that the varsity start times will be approximately ½ hour earlier each night. Start times will be 6:00 P.M. for the J.V. and approximately 6:50 P.M. for the Varsity.

3rd and 4th Grade Girls Basketball:

Saturday night is 3/4th Grade Girls Basketball Night @ the Temple vs. Bradford Varsity boys basketball game. They will be playing at halftime of the varsity game. Please remember that the varsity game will begin at approximately 6:50 P.M.

Cheer Camp:

Cheer Camp for girls in Grades K4-6 will be held the week of January 29th through Feb. 2nd. The girls will perform at the boys’ varsity basketball game on Friday Feb. 2nd.

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.

Solo/Ensemble Contest:

This past Saturday, January 20, TCS sophomore Lydia Bassett received a “1” (Superior) rating on her violin solo at the Ohio Music Education Association District 3 Solo and Ensemble Contest held at Lima Senior High. Lydia played the first movement of a violin concerto by Dmitry Kabalevsky, a famous 20th Century Russian composer. She did a fantastic job on the challenging piece (rated Class A for its difficulty) and received abundant praise from the judge who evaluated her performance. Congratulations to Lydia and her violin teacher, Dr. Sunny Zank!

College Finance Meeting:

Temple Christian School has invited a Rhodes State Financial Aid Coordinator to meet with our seniors and their parents on Thursday night February 1st at 7:00 P.M. in the high school lunch room. This is a great time to gather information and ask questions regarding college financing. This is a general college finance meeting; your child does not need to be attending Rhodes State to benefit from this meeting.

Lost and Found:

Please check out our lost and found in the elementary office by Feb. 2nd. We will be donating all items not claimed by that date.

We are looking for volunteers to help with our Scholastic Book Fair, which will be held Feb. 28th – March 2nd. We will be setting up Feb. 26th and 27th. Please contact Amy Link at 419 227-1644 (Option 1) or at linka@tcspioneers.org.

College Credit Plus Meeting:

We will be holding an informational meeting regarding the College Credit Plus Program for the 2018-19 school year on Feb. 22nd at 6:30 P.M. in the high school lunchroom. The meeting is for any middle school/high school students (and parents) who are interested in taking college courses next year.

Yearbook Orders:

We have attached a TCS yearbook order form. If you missed previous opportunities to order and you would like a copy of this year’s TCS yearbook, please see the attached flyer. Orders are due by February 2nd.

Communicable Disease and General Illness Policies:

With so many cases of illnesses and the flu going around the area, we just wanted to remind everyone of our illness policies. Please see the attached TCS Communicable Disease and General Illness policy for procedures to follow when your child is sick. Thank you.
