NEW THIS WEEK

IMPORTANT CHANGE – Please Read!
Due to the construction of the church’s worship center, First Hope’s drop off and pick up had to be moved. To make the drop off/pick up procedure a smoother and safer one, they will begin using the parking lot adjacent to the Faith Hall loop.
The only cars that will be allowed into that parking lot in the mornings and afternoons during drop off and pick up will be cars of either First Hope students or students of the church’s Early Learning Center, and cars needing to park in the few handicapped spaces provided in that parking lot.
Anyone coming on campus to drop off or pick up TCS students at the Faith Hall loop need to come through the car line or park across the street from the loop and walk up the sidewalk closest to Faith Hall.
All the adjustments we have encountered due to the construction have been smooth, and we are so thankful that our families are willing to be flexible and accommodate these and any other changes necessary to ensure the safety of all of our students.
It is a pleasure to partner with each of you!
We are excited to announce the addition of a TCS Student Government Association (SGA) for the 2015-2016 school year. SGA will be comprised of a President, Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer, and a Chaplain. Any student currently in 9th – 11th grades are eligible to run for an office as long as they meet all the qualifications.
The application and campaign packets will be available from Mrs. Fiscus on Thursday Feb. 12. All applications must be completed and returned to Mrs. Fiscus by Tuesday, Feb. 24.
Monday, February 16 is Presidents’ Day – There will be no school work assigned and the TCS offices will be closed.
