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



Our TCS Yearbook staff was out in our community today meeting with local businesses and selling yearbook ads. Thank you to Mrs. Searcy and our Yearbook students for working hard to produce a memorable yearbook.


Yearbook orders:

Can you believe spring is right around the corner? Our TCS yearbook staff has been working hard to capture memories all year long. Order your Temple Christian School 2018-2019 yearbook for only $40.00. The yearbook is full of fun photos of all of our students, so they are great for elementary, middle school, or high school! Contact Mrs. Searcy with any questions. Though the deadline won’t be until May, it’s never too early to reserve your copy!

Track and Field Registrations:

Track and Field Registrations have been released for grades K-12. We encourage our students to participate. We especially need our high school students to participate in track this year. The OHSAA requires all member schools to have two sports each season, so we need a boys and girls track team this spring. Thank you in advance for your participation.

Book Fair:

Every spring we host a Scholastic Book Fair to make it easy to put terrific books in your child’s hands. This year’s book fair will be open March 5-8. As always, we are looking for volunteers to help set up, run and tear down the book fair.
