A Message from Sarah Donovan, Principal of Extended Educational Programs
“Together we give our children the roots to grow, and the wings to fly.” It is truly the combined efforts of the school, home, and child that support a student to succeed. We are so humbled and proud of the strong re-enrollment of our Extended Educational Programs. All three programs have the highest re-enrollment numbers. to date. We have built the foundation of our school family, and are ready to help our students soar into next year! Thank you for choosing our school family- we promise to be the best we can be!

Senior Spotlight: Caiti Riley
Caiti loves the family atmosphere at TCS. Each teacher cares for each individual student. She has enjoyed TCS’s flexibility and the opportunity to take some college courses at Valencia as well. Her favorite memories have been made as a student athletic trainer for the TFA sports program. She has met many new people and made several meaningful friendships. Since she wants to go into the medical field, this opportunity has given her great experience.

Caiti is Irish and enjoys participating in her heritage. Irish music is the most common genre on her playlist, and she began competitive Irish step dancing at an early age. She has done well at both the southern regional competitions and the world championship.


President’s Day
There will be no homework and the office will be closed on February the 15th for the national holiday.


Self-Study Days
With George Washington’s birthday coming up, it’s time for us to remind you that you have self-study days on the Thursday and Friday before the holiday (February 11-12th).


A City on a Hill- A Devotional by PJ Wehry
I’ve been really challenged recently with the reminder that the church is more than just an institution. For humans, institutions are a way of life. We have families, we have governments, we have non-profits, and we even have schools. As members of Christ’s body though, we need to remember that church is not just an institution. It’s a city on a hill. There was a time when traveling was dangerous, when food and shelter were not guaranteed apart from cities and their walled enclosures. As a Christian, I wonder sometimes what I bring to those near me. Do I bring a sense of security, of well-being? Am I to be trusted, counted as a friend? Christ tells us to do good works so that we glorify our Father in heaven. Let your light shine.
