Hello TCS families. We trust that the school year is off to a good start for you and your family. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you.
School Parent Alert Messages:
If you have not been receiving Parent Alert text messages from the school, please contact the school office at 419 227-1644. If TCS students would like to receive the alert messages, they must provide the office with their cell phone number.
In order to assist us with our communications, please contact the main office if you have had a change in your address, email, or phone number.
Temple Christian School’s 2017 yearbook is available for purchase, while they last. Cost is $40.00. Please contact Mrs. Searcy (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in purchasing one, or simply send cash or a check with your student, made payable to Temple Christian School with “Yearbook” in the memo line. A limited number of previous yearbooks are also available. Sale prices for previous yearbooks are: 2016 ($30.00), 2015 ($25.00), and 2014 ($20.00). Thank you for supporting Temple Christian School!
Student Medical Records/Information:
Please make sure that you have turned in all of the required medical and other required paperwork from the summer packet that is posted on our website. The TCS website is www.tcspioneers.org. Packets are also available in the elementary office. Please remember that if your child needs to take any medication (prescription, over the counter, cough drops, etc.), they must have the medication and paperwork signed and turned into the office.
2017-18 Immunization Requirements for 7th and 12th grade students:
Incoming seventh graders for the 2017-18 school year are required to have a Tdap vaccination and the Meningococcal vaccine. The Meningococcal vaccine is also required for students entering 12th grade in the fall of 2017. This is a state requirement that went into effect last year. Students without proof of vaccination can be subject to exclusion from school. One option that families have is a Teen Immunization Clinic for students entering grades 7 and 12, held at the Allen County Health Department on August 30th from 2:00pm-5:00pm. You can call the Health department at 419-228-4457 to schedule an appointment. Appointments are preferred. Walk-ins will be seen as time allows.
Witness Wear order forms are due today, September 1st. Our first Witness Wear day is September 6th. Students may wear old Witness Wear items or blue and white items, along with a pair of jeans on Witness Wear days until our new Witness Wear arrives. Once our new Witness Wear arrives, students must wear the 2017-18 items. Old Witness Wear items and blue and white items will no longer be permitted.
You are invited to join us for either of our weekly chapel services. The elementary chapel meets upstairs in the 4th grade room on Fridays at 8:15 a.m. The middle school/high school chapel meets in our chapel room located just south of the gymnasium on Wednesdays at 8:15 A.M.

Box Tops Program:
A reminder that we are collecting box tops in the elementary. We hold periodic drawings to reward those students who participate. We would appreciate any who could help us with $10 gift cards to child friendly places such as Menchies, Toys R Us, Walmart, etc.
