Hello TCS families. I trust you have had a good week. Luke 2:11 says, “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Praise the Lord for the gift of Jesus! Enjoy the Christmas season! Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you. Have a great weekend!
Field Trip to Christmas Tree Festival:
The K4 and Preschool classes went to the Allen County Museum for the Christmas Tree Festival on Wednesday. The students enjoyed seeing all the different Christmas trees, and especially enjoyed interacting with Evergreen, the talking Christmas tree! The students were also able to participate in some crafts, and finished with cookies and lemonade! Thank you to Cliff Roberts for driving the bus, and thank you, Lord, for the beautiful snow, and safety to and from the museum!
