Hello TCS families. Romans 15:13 says, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit”. Have a great weekend! Here are a few news items we wanted to share with you.
The TCS high school drama department will present “You Can’t Take it with You” on April 15-17th. Tickets will go on sale in the high school office today, Friday April 9th. Tickets will be $10.00.

Middle School “March Madness”:
The middle school P.E. classes participated in their own version of March Madness. Mrs. Kinnear divided the students into four groups in both the boys and girls P.E. classes. Throughout the month of March, the students competed with the same teams on various basketball-related activities. Some of the mini-contests included a dribble relay, a vertical jump contest, a free-throw contest, a layup contest, a basketball trivia challenge, and more. Each team was awarded point values for their placement in each day's activities. The points determined the team seeding for the full-court basketball tournament at the end of the month. The winning team in overall points and the winning team of tournament play were awarded certificates and vouchers for the concession stand to be used after school today or next Friday.
Congratulations to the Following:
Tournament Champs: Isaiah Kiser, Caynan Schick, Levi Williams, Wyatt Yates, Jacobe Hlabse, and Russell Powell.
Overall Points Champs: Nolyn Wright, Jake Deitering, Curtis Pollard, JJ Sheets, and Nevan Long.
Tournament Champs and Overall Points Champs: Emma Engle, Rozelyn Chambers, Na'Talya Wilson, Aubrie Rentz, Cali Risner, and Zaleeyah Ricks.
A special thanks to Elizabeth Kinnear and Isabella LaPointe for filling in due to some team injuries.
We would like to recognize the runner-ups for this award: Brianna Patrick, Brooklyn Marshall, Julianna LaPointe, Harmony McCleese, Reagan Hayes, and Kylee Smith.
Thank you to all of our middle school kids for completing the month of challenges with strong determination and great attitudes.
EdChoice Expansion Scholarship Opportunities:

Families should have their applications to Amy Link in the elementary office by April 16th so that they can be processed before the state’s April 30th deadline.

MS/HS Clash of Colors:
Middle School & High School Student Government is directing the 1st Annual "Clash of Colors". Students have been placed on the Gray or Blue team for the remainder of the year. Each Friday the students earn points for their teams through fun games. They also earn points by bringing in cans and cash towards the TCS drive to support the Lima Rescue Mission. This is a great way for the students to have some friendly fun and to support a local Christian organization. Thank you to Student Government and its leaders for organizing this fun activity for student body.
