Hello TCS families. We trust you have had a good week. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you.

1 Corinthian 13:4-7: Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

1st Grade Activity: 

Our first grade classes enjoyed learning about community helpers throughout the week. They learned about how everyone has an important job to do in our community. The classes finished the week with community helper themed center activities. Everyone's favorite center was the creative play center!

Elementary Chapel: 

Earlier in the school year, high school students volunteered to be a part of a team that regularly presents to the elementary students during chapel. This morning was their second presentation, and their theme was "When God says move, we need to move!". The team enjoyed singing, praying, and discussing key points from the lesson with elementary students in small groups.
