Hello TCS families. We trust you have had a good week. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you.
Revelation 4:11: “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
Wall of Thanks:
On a bulletin board in the middle school/high school building, the students and staff are compiling a list of one thousand gifts from the Lord. The current total of 503 gifts listed includes thanking the Lord for His watchcare over us, for giving us wonderful families and friends, and answering prayers. We're halfway to 1000. If you're in the building, feel free to add to our wall of thanks!
We would like to invite you to the Fall Band/Choir Concert for grades 6-12 on Tuesday evening, October 26th at 7:00 P.M. in the Lima Baptist Temple Auditorium. (Grade 5 Band members will not perform this time but will have their debut at the Christmas Concert on December 16th.)

7th/8th Field Trip:
The 7th and 8th graders enjoyed a beautiful day on Wednesday while learning about early Ohio history at the Johnston Farm and Indian Agency in Piqua. Students saw first-hand how to spin wool, learned about the Johnston Family, and even took a canal boat ride on the Miami & Erie Canal!
Fire Safety Week:
The American Township Fire Department visited the TCS elementary this week as an important part of our fire safety week. Depending on the age group, the firefighters shared some valuable information about their profession. The fifth graders learned about the career of a firefighter and a paramedic. Firefighters spoke to the students about the training it takes to obtain this career, and some of the real life situations they might have to handle if they decide to choose this career path. The younger students really enjoyed seeing the department’s ladder truck, ambulance, and fire gear. Thank you ATFD for providing the students with this educational experience!
