Thanksgiving Break

LS Basketball
Thank you for your patience as we explored different basketball possibilities for the winter program. We have decide to join the Central Florida Basketball League. This league will feature close to 80 teams and 2 different skill levels from the Central Florida area at many locations. We will be able to practice and play most of our games here at TFA which is a big plus from last year. I am currently finalizing registration details with CFBL and plan to open up registration to boys and girls from ages K-5 starting next week. The league will start play on January 10th and continue into February. So, please look for my email next week concerning basketball registration.
Many Blessings!

Brandon Hazard


Thank You
Parents and students who brought in shoeboxes for Haiti, thank you so much for your contributions. We know that each box will be going to a precious child in need. We collected about 50 shoeboxes and they will be shipped to Haiti very soon. Please remember these children in your prayers.


Family Feast
Next Thursday, November 20, from 11:30-1:00 pm on the third floor of Faith Hall, we will be celebrating our annual Thanksgiving Family Feast! This is a time where TCS families gather together for a Thanksgiving lunch and TCS students in grades K-8 put on a presentation. There are no classes following the Family Feast.

If you would like to make a dessert for the Family Feast or assist in setting up or breaking down, please do so at the following link.


You should have received an email from Don Baker at TFA listing the remaining senior items needed. Please make sure you are on top of getting these things taken care of. Let me know if you have any questions.

Also remember you are required to apply to 3 colleges and most colleges’ application deadline is December 15th. If you have not begun this process, please do so immediately.
