October 27th Newsletter

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

Stories of the Bible Chapel:

The Preschool through 5th grade students enjoyed a fun chapel today. Students dressed up like Bible characters, and each class had the opportunity of quoting a class verse or singing a class song. It was a great time to reflect on some of the exciting stories of the Bible.

National Honor Society Induction Ceremony:

Congratulations to Jonathan Acklin and Brody Bowman for their induction into the National Honor Society on Thursday evening at Temple. Pastor Damien Tibbs issued a challenge to current NHS members and the two new inductees. Thank you to Mrs. Jenna Beougher (NHS Advisor), Katie Helser (NHS assistant advisor), and the rest of our NHS teacher committee for all of their hard work in preparing for the ceremony.

Makerfest Report:

MakerFest 2017 was held on Friday, October 20th. Over 1,500 students from 30 schools in the Greater Lima Region attended. Temple had 49 high school students compete in competitions ranging from graphic design and cupcake decorating to physics and anatomy. One of our Bike Physics teams, consisting of Ethan DeLeon, Dillon Grover, and Cameron Worsham, took 3rd place, while Brody Bowman received 1st place in a graphic design competition. We could not be prouder of how well our students represented themselves and Temple Christian School. Congratulations to all of our students who participated! We are looking forward to MakerFest 2018.

Medical Reminders:

All medications taken by students must be administered by office staff, including cough drops. An Over the Counter Medication form or Prescription Medication form must be completed by parents and turned into the office before any medication can be given. Prescription medication forms must be signed by a parent and the student’s physician. All medications must be brought in by a responsible adult, not sent in with students.

We would like to remind parents that if your child has a fever, vomiting, and/or loose stool, they should remain at home for 24 hours after their last episode.
