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

Jeremiah 17:7:  “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him”.

9/11 Memorial Service:  

TCS 5th and 6th graders have been invited to participate in a 9/11 Community Memorial Service on Saturday, September 11th, at First Missionary Church on Robb Avenue. Students have prepared cards to present to safety service personnel being honored at the event. Pastor Tim White, the event organizer, visited Temple on Thursday and did a presentation for our 5th and 6th grade classes. Thank you Pastor White for giving our students this excellent opportunity.

Reader's Theater for the Story of Esther:

The 9th grade Bible class acted out the story of Esther this week to see how God used her to deliver the Jews from the evil plot of Haman. This year's freshman Bible curriculum titled "Survival Quest" focuses on what we can learn from Biblical characters and how we can apply it to our lives. Students learned that Esther risked her position and possessions to do something greater to help her people.

Stepping Back in Time:

The sixth grade history students enjoyed a journey back through time this week as they analyzed many "artifacts" from previous generations and guessed how they were used. One of the most popular items was a cordless curling iron that was heated on a stove and used in the late 1800s! Many students guessed it was a type of pliers. Students also learned that years ago before central air, paperweights were a necessity to prevent papers from blowing off of a desk when windows were open to cool down a house. It was fun to compare how times have changed!

Third Grade Field Trip:

Our third grade class went to the Allen County Farm Park to participate in the "Pioneer Skills" field trip. Students learned about life in the early 1800s, and participated in several activities. Activities included making candles, making cider, grinding corn, carving wood, making cornbread and so much more! They had a blast!

Hearing, Vision Screenings:

Over the next three weeks K5, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th, and all new students will have vision and hearing screenings. Rhodes State students will assist with these screenings on September 15 & 23, along with their instructor and our nurse. 

Postural screenings will be included for 5th, 7th, and 8th grade students. Parents/guardians will be informed if there is a need for follow-up. Any questions can be directed to our nurse, Shelley Zwiebel. 

Positive Referral Donations needed:

Each week in grades 6-12, we recognize a student for his or her positive contributions to the TCS atmosphere.  Teachers can “write up” students for their positive actions and service to TCS, and each week they are entered into a drawing. Would you be willing to donate $10 Gift Cards for these positive referral winners? Last year we were able to reward 30+ students for their positive attitudes and contributions to their peers and teachers. If you would like to help, please notify Mr. McPheron at mcpheronbj@tcspioneers.org or drop off your donation of gift cards or cash to the HS office (labeled “Positive Referral”).  (Examples of gift cards: Taco Bell, gas stations, Menchies, movie theatre, fast food, etc.)

We will communicate delays and cancellations using our text alert system. We also post on WLIO/Hometown Stations.
