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

Ephesians 4:1-3  “As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.  Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.  Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.

Encourage TCS Students with a Homecoming Program Ad:

We are putting together the TCS homecoming program. For $5, anyone can purchase a space to write a note of encouragement to any student or group of students. Example notes would be: "Great job volleyball girls on your season! -Coach" or "Have a great school year, Layla! Love, Mom and Dad." These can be handwritten by you or us. If you are interested in purchasing a note space, please contact Megan Kinnear at kinnearm@tcspioneers.org no later than Wednesday, September 22nd.

TCS Chapel:

TCS was privileged to have the Covenant Players perform interactive Bible plays and skits for elementary and MS/HS chapels this week.  The group did a great job of teaching a variety of Bible stories and principles using drama as its medium.

A Trip to Ancient Mesopotamia: 

This week, the sixth grade history class learned about the different classes and occupations of the ancient Sumerian civilization. They were able to dress up in costume and use a few props as we discussed the roles of kings, priests, scribes, artisans, merchants, fishermen, and many others. It was a fun way to learn new information and travel back in time!

1st Grade Science Centers: 

Mrs. Rager and Miss Kirkendall’s classes joined together for hands-on science centers this week. Some of the centers included classifying living and non-living things, animal Lego building challenges, and habitat puzzles to name a few. The students loved wrapping up our science chapter in this engaging way!

TCS Recess: 

Our students enjoyed the beautiful weather this week! At recess, our students raced one another in a quick relay.  Building friendships and learning to play together are things we teach and encourage at Temple.
