Parents, please take a moment to mark your calendars. The following are important dates that you do not want to miss:
At TCS, we are a true school to home partnership. Our faculty wanted to share some tips that have proven to be helpful to parents as it relates to the home component and responsibility.
I hope these tips will continue to help your family grow in the hybrid environment! If you have any tips that have helped you find success at home with your students, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can share them with others in the near future.
Have you seen the newest family member of the Burch family yet? They have a sweet story of how he came to be with them. The Burch’s became a foster family in May. Through DCF, they received a call that Brayden would be placed with them temporarily. Brayden was born on July 29th, and he came home to the Burch’s on August 1st. Through the months Brayden was with them, it was determined by the courts that he would be placed up for adoption. As his foster family, they had the first rights to adopt him, and they quickly realized he was theirs from the start! His adoption was finalized January 18th and he is with his forever family!! Here is Brayden with his older siblings, TCS students Gracelyn and Robbie.
Our middle school students had a blast enjoying root beer floats last week, provided by First Orlando Student Ministry. The student ministry also promoted Surge weekend during this time. This is a discipleship weekend that takes place in February. Please see the First Orlando website to sign your student up (middle and high school students).
Kindergarten students had fun practicing phonics while working on puzzles.
Last Thursday, Amanda, from Valencia College, did a presentation to our high school students and parents on Dual Enrollment. Please stay turned for details on the next enrollment period. This is a great opportunity for students to earn both high school and college credit and is open to high school students with qualifying GPA and test scores.
As a reminder, in cases of extremely cold weather, TCS will send out an email letting students and parents know that students may wear jeans. Please don’t assume that we will have alternative wear unless you receive an email from us.
On March 2nd, TCS will host the first ever Wax Museum. This will be held on the 2nd floor of E-2, from 9 am – 11 am. More details will be coming soon on this!

High School students need 75 or 100 hours to qualify for Bright Futures scholarships, depending on which type of scholarship the student qualifies for. Students should go here to print the form. Please do not submit the online form, as this will go to TFA Upper School. Please print the PDF version and then turn in to Mrs. Mayberry.
Seniors: Please remember to keep Mrs. Mayberry updated with your college acceptances via email. We want to celebrate with you!
