CLASS AND STUDENT SPOTLIGHTS

Sohan K., a fourth grade student in Mrs. Pillow’s class, completed a math olympic qualifying test in his TCS math class. Based on his score, he was eligible to advance to the 2017 ACSI(Association of Christian Schools International) District event. He traveled with his mom to Foundation Academy to compete against other qualifiers in grades 3-8.  We are so proud of Sohan’s achievement! Congratulations!

PRINCIPAL’S NOTE

 It is so hard to believe but we only have about one month left of school.  Where did the time go?  It seems we just moved into E2, doesn’t it?  As I prepare for our Progress Ceremony on the last day of school (May 24), I am reminded of all the growth that has happened so far.  We aren’t finished with the year quite yet and we have more to accomplish with our students.  I am grateful every day for each of the teachers and paraprofessionals especially for all they invest in our students.  I can never say thank you enough.   Our Lord has noticed each and every moment:)
