Hello TCS families. The Lord has blessed our first two weeks of school. Thank you for your continued prayers and support for TCS. Psalm 25:4-5 says, “Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long”. What a great verse to remind us to study God’s Word and to trust Him with our lives. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you.
We wanted to take a moment to remember those who lost their lives as a result of the September 11, 2001 attacks on our nation. The attacks killed over 3,000 people, including many firefighters and law enforcement officers. Take a moment today to pray for those who lost loved ones on this day in history, and also take a moment to thank first responders who risk their lives for our health and safety.
Prayers for TCS Staff Member:
Continue praying for a TCS teacher, Melinda Smith. She had surgery Thursday Sept. 10th on her foot. She had 16 screws and 2 plates inserted. Please be praying for her healing.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The freshman Bible class assisted Union Chapel Missionary Church by folding boxes for Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child. The students watched some videos about this ministry and then got to work on the first step of blessing children around the world.
Elementary Art Project:
In elementary art, we kicked off our first big project "The Friendship Tree". We learned that God is always thinking of us, so much so, that He has our name engraved in the palm of His hand (Isaiah 49:16). He wants to be our friend and wants us to be a friend to others also.
First Grade Brown Bags:
The first grade students had fun getting to know each other better this week! Students brought in brown bags that included some family photos, their favorite thing to play with, and something that is special to them. It was a special time learning more about each other!

Positive Referral Donations Needed:
Each week in 6th-12th grade, we recognize a student for his or her positive contributions to the TCS atmosphere. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or drop off your donation of gift cards, cash to the HS office (labeled “Positive Referral”). (Examples of gift cards: Taco Bell, gas stations, Menchies, movie theatre, fast food, etc.)
Student Medical Records/Information:
Please make sure that you have turned in all of the required medical and other paperwork from the summer packet. Contact the elementary office if you still need any paperwork and we can email it to you. Remember that if your child needs to take any medication (prescription, over the counter, cough drops, etc.), they must have the medication and paperwork signed and turned into the office. Medication should be brought to school by parents, rather than students. Prescription medication forms must be signed by a physician.
Please note: inhalers are prescriptions that also need proper physician orders and documentation. This is the policy even if your an older student that carries it at school or for sports. Please call Shelley Zwiebel, our school nurse, in the elementary office with any questions or concerns.
