Hello TCS families. I hope everyone has had a good week. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you.
Hermon Woodlands Field Trip:
The first and second grade classes had a beautiful day for their end of the year field trip! Students were able to explore a log cabin, play on a rope swing, dig in a giant sand box, build a wooden teepee structure, and walk the storybook trail. The afternoon ended with a free trip to the ice cream truck, thanks to a generous family!
First Grade STEM Project:
The first grade students completed a STEM activity today involving plants. The students read about different types of leaves and which ones are designed to hold water best in arid climates. The students made their hypothesis in the morning and discovered the outcome in the afternoon. They enjoyed this hands-on opportunity for learning!
Middle School Field Trip:
On Tuesday, the 7th and 8th grade students visited Greenfield Village and the Ford Rouge Factory in Dearborn, Michigan. They experienced a multisensory exploration of the vehicle manufacturing process filled with jaw-dropping special effects, and traveled the elevated walkway above the truck plant and watched as the workers assembled the F-150.
Sixth Grade Field Trip:
On Monday, the 6th grade students enjoyed a wonderful day at Johnston Farm and Indian Agency in Piqua. Students learned what life was like on the early frontier in Ohio, as well as the relationships that the Native Americans had with their agent John Johnston as he worked on their behalf with the United States government. Students discovered how the Johnston Family lived and worked in their household with their 15 children! A highlight of the trip was the canal boat ride, which was pulled by a mule along a portion of the Miami & Erie Canal. Everyone appreciated learning outside the classroom in the beautiful weather!
The annual 4th Grade Narnia Play is next week! The parent performance is Wednesday, May 15 at 1:00 P.M. The Middle / High School performance is Thursday, May 16 at 1:00 P.M. The elementary performance will be Friday, May 17 at 9:00 A.M. for Chapel. The students are very excited! They love the sets, the costumes, the music, the props, the face painting, and being knighted at the end of the play. They have done a great job memorizing their lines and acting out their parts. We also love the beautiful meaning of the story. We invite you to attend the play and support our 4th graders!
Student Government Game Day:
On Thursday, the TCS Student Government hosted its annual 9-12 Game Day. Students in 9-12th grade competed in dodgeball and volleyball tournaments and enjoyed pizza, pop, and prize drawings. Thank you to this year’s student government representatives for all of your hard work throughout the school year and on this event.
