A Note from the Principal
What a blessing each and every one of our families are at The Extended Educational Programs! I so enjoyed sharing time with families at the Coffee with the Principal last Thursday. It is such a strong reminder of how proud we are to serve not only the students of TFA’s Extended Educational Programs, but their beautiful families too. A school community is the foundation for a school’s success and ours is Royals strong!

RECOGNITION – Joe Donaldson

This is Joe’s first year at TFA. He is teaching history classes for the 6-12th grades. Having just moved from a public school, Joe really enjoys being able to teach from a Christian worldview. He loves the students here, and he loves his coworkers.

Joe hasn’t been here long, but he did enjoy the warm welcome he received when he started. He remembers with special fondness having Four Rivers barbecue for lunch during staff training.

Joe loves to play tennis and read Harry Potter.


Breakfast with the Principal

Thank you TCS parents for attending our Breakfast with the Principal this past week! We appreciate your partnership and are blessed to have you in our program.


Science and Geography Fairs
This year we will be modifying our Science and Geography Fairs. Students in grades 6-8 will only be completing the Science Fair, while students in grades K-5 will be only doing the Geography Fair. More details will be coming soon!


Please take a few moments to verify and update your contact, emergency, and pickup information in RenWeb. This is our primary method of regular communication so it is important that we have
accurate information on each student.


Immunization Records
New students to TFA and all Kindergarten and 7th grade students must have up-to-date immunization and health records on file. Avoid the rush at the beginning of the school year and drop these off anytime between 8:00am-3:00pm to the TCS Office.


Middle & Upper School Tardies and Attendance
As we begin the new year, please remember our teachers only have 2 days with your student each week. Being in class, on time and ready to learn is essential for their academic progress. We greatly appreciate your assistance in this area.
