Sixth Graders Explore Ancient Greece
The sixth grade recently completed a unit about ancient Greece. They became Greek citizens with Greek names and competed in the annual Olympics as city-states. The Olympics involved various competitions such as a hoop shoot, paper airplane design, jump rope, and a domino building competition, just to name a few! City-states were also awarded points based on scholastic achievements throughout the weeks that we learned about ancient Greece. In addition, the citizens enjoyed creating masks for the Greek dramas they performed. Congratulations to the city-state of Rhodes who won gold at this year's Olympics! The citizens of Rhodes were Julianna LaPointe, Nevan Long, Elizabeth Kinnear, Brianna Patrick, Levi Williams, and Jaycee Parent.
A Note from the Nurse
Rhodes State nursing students will be coming on February 27th to assist with postural screenings for the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. If we do not complete screening on this day you will be informed of a follow-up date. The nursing students will be under the direction of our nurse and their nursing instructor. Students will be screened individually from their peers and will be asked to remove their shirt. Girls will want to wear a snug tank or cami for the screening.
If there are any problems detected, we will send home a recommendation for follow up with your child’s physician. Please note, this is just a screening and does not guarantee all problems will be detected. If you have any questions or prefer not to have your child screened please email me, firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also call the school office at 419-227-1644.
God, Flag, and Country Speech Contest Winners
Two TCS students participated in the local God, Flag, and Country Speech Contest that was sponsored by the Fraternal Order of Eagles on Sunday, February 9. Eighth-grader Leyton Chambers won first place for the 12-13-year-olds, and Rozelyn Chambers (5th grade) won first place for the 10-11-year-old division. Leyton's speech focused on Americans' soldiers' sacrifices and the importance of the American flag, while Rozelyn's speech centered on the theme of bringing the United States back to God. They both won cash prizes for first place and will move on to the regional competition on March 8 in Columbus Grove. Congratulations, Leyton and Rozelyn!
Valentine’s Day Festivities
TCS Elementary students had a very fun Valentine’s Day! We dressed in our Valentines colors and brought in adorable, decorated boxes along with Valentines to share. We also enjoyed cute Valentines games, activities and snacks. We all agree that the most important thing to do on Valentine's Day is to share God’s love. Thank you to the seniors & Mrs. Finch for their hard work on honeygrams this valentines day!
