Reader’s Theater Starts Next Week

February 21st, 2019 by Becca Tellinghuisen

TCS Reader’s Theater is here! Students in grades 3-6 are invited to participate in our annual puppet plays. We will meet during the last hour of the day on Fridays in March to rehearse and make puppets. The performance will be March 29. This is an optional activity; students not participating will have a study hall.

We are asking that students return a form by Monday to let us know if they will be participating. They must be available to attend all Friday afternoon rehearsals and the performance on Friday, May 29. An absence due to illness or another unforeseen reason will, of course, be understood and excused.

We’re looking forward to another great show!

February Virtue Focus – Compassion

February 21st, 2019 by Becca Tellinghuisen

As we continue to focus on COMPASSION, we welcomed Pastor Brad Zwiers as our chapel speaker this past Wednesday. Ask your child to tell you how Pastor Zwiers’ nephew showed compassion with “puppies” and how we can show compassion like the Centurion in Luke 7.

Don’t forget about the “Try This” ideas as your family looks to put compassion into practice!
