Hello TCS families. Psalm 19:1 says, “the heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands”. Praise the Lord for His wonderful creation. Enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend! Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you.
Elementary Fall Festivities:
The Elementary students enjoyed a fall festival right here at Temple today. They enjoyed hayrides, STEM activities, art projects, picking pumpkins, painting pumpkins, and a variety of other fun activities.
The fourth grade class started out our Fall Fest with making our very own paper pumpkins! We went on a hayride, picked pumpkins from the pumpkin patch, had yummy pumpkin treats, made pumpkin and leaf crafts, colored pumpkin patterns, and read pumpkin stories!
The K-5 class had a wonderful time at the Fall Festival. The students loved the hayride and played “I spy”. They also enjoyed getting to “pick” their very own pumpkin!
Today in one of our elementary chapel services, we learned that when we are afraid, we need to seek God's Presence! Psalm 34:4 says, "I sought the Lord and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears". Just as the disciples sought Jesus while he was asleep in the boat during the storm, we can seek after Him when we are fearful. We know that in His presence is fullness of joy! Fear cannot remain in the presence of the Lord.
Algebra 2 Activity:
The Algebra 2 class recently played a review game - social distance style: Coordinate Plane Battleship! We are celebrating homecoming and embracing students’ competitive spirits while reinforcing our chapter 2 topic.
8th Grade Bible Service Project:
The 8th graders were able to go to Lima Manor and play some Tic Tac Toe with several of the residents. It was a beautiful day to walk over and encourage the residents.
TCS is sponsoring a limited Homecoming Weekend this weekend. All schools are having to limit their Homecoming activities this year due to Covid-19.
