Weekly Newsletter

Friday – May 4th, 2018

Hello TCS families. I trust everyone had a good week. Matthew 5:6 says, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled”. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you.


National Day of Prayer:

TCS Elementary students had the opportunity to perform at the Allen County National Day of Prayer Event held on May 3rd at the UNOH Event Center. Students opened the ceremony with The National Anthem followed by two additional songs. We count it as a privilege and a blessing to live in our great nation, and to come together in unity and pray freely with our community. Thank you Mrs. Smith, elementary teachers, and young people for a job well done.


Teacher Appreciation Breakfast:

TCS teachers enjoyed an incredible breakfast event this morning thanks to our TCS teacher appreciation committee. Thanks to Melissa Hollinger, Amber Shade, and Lora Szuch for organizing the event and blessing our staff with breakfast, gifts, and encouraging words. Thank you TCS teachers for your commitment to the Lord and to TCS. We all appreciate you!


Middle School Field Trip:

TCS middle school students enjoyed a field trip to Columbus on Wednesday. They were able to see how chocolate candy is made and packaged at the Anthony-Thomas Candy Factory. The machinery was really fascinating and the smell of the chocolate throughout the plant was awesome! The students then ventured on to the Ohio History Museum where they encountered a mastodon and viewed many different Ohio history displays as well as artifacts from the Native Americans who lived throughout Ohio. The field trip was a great way to connect what the students have been learning about in history and economics lessons.


Spring Sports Physicals for current 6th – 11th graders: 

The 2018-2019 Sports Physicals Packet was released last week. The packet contains crucial documents for the 2018-2019 Athletic Seasons. All documents are required to be signed, and the Physicians’ physical must be completed in order for any student to participate in a practice, scrimmage, or game by August 1, 2018. The packet includes information about the Free Sports Physical given at O.I.O on May 7th and May 14th. Families are encouraged to complete all paperwork before the end of this school year so that everything is in place for next school year (*Especially those that play fall sports). 


Booster Mulch Sale:

The Booster Club Mulch Sale is under way. Order forms are available in both offices and/or available by clicking hereThe sale ends on May 21, 2018.


Lost and Found:

We encourage elementary students and parents to check the lost and found in the elementary office before the end of the school year. Items not picked up by the last day of school will be donated to a local thrift store.



If we have not heard from you regarding the 2018-19 school year, we would love to hear from you soon. Registration packets are available in the elementary office and/or available by clicking hereWe look forward to your family returning to TCS.


Referral Discount:

 Please help us spread the good news about Temple Christian School by sharing TCS with your friends, families, and others. TCS families are eligible for a $300 tuition discount if they refer a family to TCS. The referred family must enroll in TCS and remain for at least one semester.


Box Tops:

Do you have a jar full of Box Tops at home?  In the elementary building, we have a monthly drawing.  For every 25 Box Tops turned in, the student gets to pick a prize and enter his or her name in a drawing.  At the end of each month, one name will be drawn to win a prize. To help us out, please make sure the Box Tops are NOT expired and are cut out neatly.  Collection sheets are available in the elementary office.  Do NOT attach bonus Box Tops to the collection sheets. Thanks!
