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

John 16:33   “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”


Re-enrollment for the 2022-23 school year is scheduled to begin in February. Look for re-enrollment news the week of February 8-11. Thank you for choosing Temple for your children. We consider it a blessing to partner with you in your child’s education.

EdChoice Scholarship Renewal:

Renewal for EdChoice Scholarships begins in February. This includes the EdChoice Traditional and EdChoice Expansion Programs. Renewal applications have not yet been released by the Ohio Department of Education, but they should be available in early February.  Please contact Amy Link in the elementary office for information about renewing your EdChoice Scholarship.

Elementary Chapel:

The elementary students learned how our words can pierce like a sword or can bring healing to others (Proverbs 12:18) during chapel today. The students were challenged to show love to one another and to speak words of kindness to everyone.

K4 Activity:

The K4 class enjoyed Tuesday’s two hour delay by turning nap time into movie time! The class enjoyed snuggling down on their cots with their blankets and watched “Snow Buddies!” They loved the movie and are hoping to be able to watch it again soon!

Bus Information for Delays and Cancellations: (Lima City, Elida, Shawnee, Bath)
  • When any of our local schools who transport TCS students are delayed or cancelled due to weather conditions, all TCS pick-ups will follow your local district’s delay or cancellation. So if your local district is cancelled due to weather for the day, there will be no buses running for TCS students in the morning or in the afternoon.
  • If TCS delays due to weather, and the local district who transports TCS students does not delay or cancel, your local district will follow TCS’s schedule for the day.
  • If your child rides a Lima City, Elida, Shawnee, or Bath bus, please check their delay/cancellation status for the day so you know if the bus will be running.
  • Please remember that our staff reports 30 minutes before the beginning of the school day, so our buildings will open at 9:30 a.m. on mornings we have a two hour delay. Please do not drop students off before this time.

Lost and Found:

If your child is missing anything, please check the lost & found basket outside the elementary office. Any items that are not claimed by 2/4/22 will be donated to the Neighborhood Relief Thrift Store.
