Hello TCS families. Mark 16:5-7 says, “As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. ‘Don’t be alarmed,’ he said. ‘You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see Him, just as He told you.’” Praise the Lord for His sacrificial death on the cross and his victory over death when He rose on the third day. Have a great weekend. Here are a few news items we wanted to share with you.
Please take the time to complete your re-enrollment forms that were emailed out in early February. Take note that completing your re-enrollment by March 31st will save you $50.00 per student on your re-enrollment fee. The office will be closed for Easter Break on March 31.
K4 Easter Lesson:
The K4 class has been learning that Easter is all about God’s love for us! He loved us so much that he sent His perfect Son, Jesus, to die on the cross to take the punishment for our sins. The students enjoyed coloring a picture of the cross, and really did a fantastic job showing how colorful and creative they can be!!
This week Lindsey Stump was awarded the Lima Exchange Club's Accepting the Challenge of Excellence Award. This is an annual award given to students that demonstrate hard work and perseverance in their attitude and academic work during their high school years. Lindsey was presented with a certificate and a monetary award.
6th Grade History Lesson:
As an extension to learning about ancient Rome, the 6th grade history students worked with a partner and became "travel agents" to design brochures for various destination spots throughout Italy. Students researched famous landmarks, interesting foods, and the climate of their city to write descriptive tri-fold brochures for potential tourists.
