Hello TCS families. I Thessalonians 5:16-18 says, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” These are encouraging and positive words for each of us to remember as we go about our daily lives. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you.

Hearing and Vision Screenings:

Over the next three weeks: K5, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th, and all new students will have vision and hearing screenings.  Parents/guardians will be informed if there is a need for a follow-up. Any question can be directed to our nurse Shelley Zwiebel (zwiebels@tcspioneers.org)

Art Class Ministry Project:

Our elementary had the opportunity to be a blessing to TCS student Jonah Aregood, who is currently very ill. Each class made a "Get Well" card. While making the cards, our classes had the opportunity to pray for Jonah, and discuss with one another how mighty of a Healer our God is! We pray believing in faith that God is able to heal every infirmity.
