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!
Spring Picture Day:
Spring Picture Day is April 1. Order forms and flyers will be distributed this week. Those who are getting spring pictures taken may wear appropriate dress clothes rather than their regular school uniforms. Remember, all clothing must be modest and appropriate according to TCS standards. Boys: Dress pants and dress shirts (polos or button-up shirts) Girls: Dress pants and dress shirts/blouses, dresses, skirts and blouses.
Reading Month Craft Day:
Today the elementary students continued with their “Wild About Reading African Safari” reading month theme with a craft activity. The students were able to choose from four different crafts to make. The older students were paired with younger students to make their craft. The younger students love getting to work with someone they can look up to and it is great to see the older students take on a leadership role. Students made Safari animal masks, African necklaces, jeeps, and binoculars for their adventures.
Reading Month Author Visit:
Characters, conflict, research. What else is necessary to become a published author? On Wednesday Mrs. Rosanne Bowman challenged the students of grades 3-5 to be creative as she shared the process of writing her book called HOOK’S DAUGHTER: THE UNTOLD TALE OF A PIRATE PRINCESS. The 5th graders were given opportunity to develop their own characters by answering questions like “What does your character look like? What do they want more than anything? What is her biggest strength?” Thank you, Mrs. Bowman, for sharing your time and expertise with our elementary students.
Physics Class Project:
The Physics class is learning about circuits and schematic diagrams. In this photo, Dakota Clay and Jonathan Acklin have wired an arduino to light a series of LEDs. Great job guys!
Spring Musical and Art Show:
The TCS spring musical and art show will take place on April 11-13 in the LBT main auditorium. The students will be presenting Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Tickets will go on sale to cast family members on April 1st, TCS families on April 2nd, and the general public on April 3rd. Tickets are $8 and will be sold in the high school office. In addition, Mrs. Phillips and the TCS art students will be presenting their annual art show. Please make sure to mark your calendar for this exciting event.

TCS students won their competition against Apollo by collecting 2,296 cans that will be donated to Our Daily Bread, a local non-profit organization.
