Weekly Newsletter

Friday – May 11th 2018

Hello TCS families. I trust everyone had a good week. 2 Thessalonians 3:13 says, “And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is good”. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you.


Third Grade Field Trip:

 On Wednesday, the third grade took a field trip to Sauder Village in Archbold, OH. It was a beautiful day to see Ohio’s past on display. Students saw brooms being made, went to school in a one-room schoolhouse, made butter, and much more. Fun things included a ride on the train, a buggy ride, icecream, and of course souvenirs. It was a great day.


First/Second Grade Field Trip:

Tuesday, the first and second grades went to Hermon Woodlands. It was a perfect day for the park! The students went on a scavenger hunt, had a picnic, constructed a teepee, played in a large sandbox, and explored a small log cabin. They had a great time being creative and playing in God’s beautiful creation!


Fourth Grade Play:

You are invited to the annual Narnia Play performed by the 4th grade in their classroom. The parent performance is Wednesday May 16th at 1:00 P.M. The middle school/high school performance is Thursday May 17th at 1:00 P.M. The elementary performance is Friday May 18th at 9:00 A.M.  We look forward to this every year. We love the props, sets, costumes, and sharing the beautiful story of Aslan and the four children becoming Kings and Queens in Narnia. Aslan giving his life for Edmond is a symbolic picture of how Jesus gave His life for us. There is such power in this beautiful story of sacrifice, redemption, and royalty.


Third Grade Play:

The third grade class will be performing their annual “The Trials of Tillie Tooth” play on Tuesday, May15th, at 8:20 A.M. and 2:15 P.M. in the 3rd grade classroom. You are invited to attend.


Student Government Game Day:

On Thursday, the TCS Student Government hosted its annual 9-12 Game Day. Forty students in 9-12th grade competed in spike ball, volleyball tournaments, and enjoyed pizza, pop, and prize drawings. Thank you to this year’s student government representatives for all of your hard work throughout the school year and on this event. Student Government is a self-nominating process in which students are elected by their peers to represent their classes throughout the year for various projects, events, and student activities. Student Government elections for 2018-2019 will take place on Friday May 18th via an online voting process! 


TCS Golf Scramble:

The TCS golf scramble will be held on Saturday May 26th at 9:00 a.m. at the Hidden Creek Golf Club. To register online, go to: https://tcsgolfouting.eventbrite.comContact Athletic Director BJ McPheron (mcpheronbj@tcspioneers.org) for more information.
