Elementary Chapel:

Our elementary students have been learning about the Christian character trait of “Discipline-I will do the things God wants me to do every day” during the month of September.  We have been challenging students to put God’s Word into practice in their classrooms. In today’s chapel, two students from each class were recognized for showing the godly trait of discipline. Congratulations to: Ryker White, Londyn Hutchison, Lillian Buzhardt, Karson Haines, Sophie Ellerbrock, Kyler McDonald, Brayson Unruh, James Anderson, Adam Kiser, Alexis Shade, Emi Nishimoto, A.J. Heister, Mason Lesko and Mikaya Linhart. And a special thanks to Jenna Beougher, Children’s Director at Lima Baptist Temple, for teaching our students about putting on the Armor Of God!


Elementary Field Trip:

The first and second grades had a beautiful morning Tuesday for their field trip to Suter’s! The students enjoyed a hayride, lessons about woodland creatures, picking a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch, and learning about the life cycle of a pumpkin. The students also learned how apple cider is made and got to taste test some of the delicious cider at the end of the field trip. It was a wonderful day enjoying the beautiful fall weather!


K5 Field Trip:

Our K5 class recently went to the Furry Tail Farm for a Fall field trip. The students enjoyed a hayride, played in field corn, crawled through tunnels in the ground, rode the zip lines, and so much more. It was a fun day for everyone!


K5 Learning Activity:  

Our K5 class recently enjoyed visits from Lima firefighter/medic Erick Hayes, who is the father of K5 student Oaklyn Hayes and Lima police officer/detective Matt Boss, who is the father of K5 student Cameron Boss. The class had a great time learning many interesting things about being a firefighter, police officer, and a good citizen. Thank you Mr. Hayes and Mr. Boss for visiting our class.


H.S. Band Students Attend Leadership Workshop: 

On September 9th, four Temple High School Band members had the opportunity to attend a student leadership workshop at ONU, hosted by District 3 of the Ohio Music Education Association. Austin Hill, Brady Peterson, Brandon Campbell, and Caleb Kiser joined 100 other students from all over our 8-county district to participate in a session given by Mr. Fran Kick. Kick is a nationally recognized motivational speaker for students and teachers who encouraged the students to “Kick It In” and “Take the Lead.” This kind of training can help young people to develop a strong sense of servant leadership–a worthwhile goal for Temple students.


TCS Golf: 

Congratulations to Senior Lincoln Waters. On Thursday, he competed in the Division III Sectional Golf Tournament at Colonial Golf Club. Lincoln qualified to move on to the District Golf Tournament by shooting an 84. Lincoln will now compete in the District Tournament on Thursday, October 3rd, at Stone Ridge Golf Club in Bowling Green, Ohio with a chance to qualify for the state golf tournament. Congratulations and Good Luck Lincoln!
