October 2010

Dear Parents,

Let me begin by saying a big “THANK YOU” for all of your help with our fall fund-raiser!  I have not received information from the company as to what our profits were but I feel confident that we did quite well with sales and donations.  I’ll keep you posted as soon as I have the final figures!!

Don’t forget to check the homework hotline to stay apprised on school information.  I try to update the hotline weekly, and often daily, depending on the nature of the information.  That number again is 846-0024 Ext. 555.

A couple of dates for you to remember as you look at the school calendar for October:

  1. October 2:        Athletic Boosters’ pancake breakfast!!!  Yum!
  2. October 7:        Substitute teacher workshop from 8:30-11:30.
  3. October 2:        TCS Fall Festival from 9:00-5:00.
  4. October 12:      Fall pictures!
  5. October 21:      End of First Quarter
  6. October 25:      Our very first PTM (Parent – Teacher meeting) grades K5-5th.

The PTM is a brand new program that we’re implementing here at Temple Christian School!  We will be having these meetings quarterly.  Here’s how it works:  You will go to your child’s classroom on that evening at 7:00.  (If you have more than one child, perhaps parents could split and each visit a different teacher.) You will need to be prompt, because the teacher is actually going to “teach” everything the students will be doing for the next nine weeks, and offer suggestions as to how to help your children succeed!  The meeting will not last longer than 30-45 minutes.  Please do not bring your children to this meeting.  This is for parents/guardians only.   It will be a very profitable program, I think!  If you have questions about this new program, please don’t hesitate to contact me in the school office!

If you would like to have a school Handbook, please stop by the school office and pick one up!  We have plenty!!!

Welcome fall!!!!!
