February 2011

Dear Parents,                                                                                                                    February 2011 Calendar

Welcome to February!!!  Who knows what this month holds for us weather-wise!  Keep that hotline number handy!

As you can see by the calendar, February is packed!  Enrollment is very early this year and we’re doing things a little differently and we hope that’s a help to you.  We will NOT be having a re-enrollment PTF this year.  Instead, enrollment packets will go home on Wednesday, February 2, and enrollment applications will be accepted beginning at 8:00 Thursday morning, February 3. Enrollment opens to the public one week later on Thursday, February 10.  There are many classes that tend to fill up quickly, so I want to encourage you to sign your children up early to avoid the possibility of having them placed on a waiting list.

Parents of seniors who will be going on the senior trip to Italy and Greece:  We will be having a meeting on Monday evening February 7 at 6:00 in the choir room (across from my office).  You will want to come to get valuable information that will be helpful for your family as we prepare to leave the country in March!

Homecoming will be Thursday evening, February 17!  On that evening we will be recognizing our TCS alumni, as well as crowning our 2011 Homecoming Queen and King!  Please come out and support this exciting night at Temple Christian School!  There will be reduced admission, so it will be affordable for your entire family!  We’d love to pack out the gym on that night, and cause the fire marshal to be concerned with the number of people there!!!!!  (Just kidding.  Kind of.) 

Leading up to Homecoming is Spirit Week!  We encourage students (and staff!) to dress according to each day’s theme.  Please see the calendar for specifics. 

Winter Break is scheduled for Friday, February 18 through Monday, February 21.  Daycare will not be available during that time.  Classes will resume Tuesday, February 22.  Enjoy!!

Our 4th – 8th grade PTM will be held on Thursday, February 24, from 6:00-6:45.  This is an opportunity for the teachers to keep you informed as to what is coming up as we end the 3rd quarter and begin the final quarter of the school year.  Following that PTM, we will be having a brief (and I mean BRIEF!) meeting in the fellowship hall to introduce you to our fund-raiser options for next fall.  If you would like to see what we are considering and would like to give your input/suggestions, I would like to invite you to attend this VERY BRIEF meeting!!

Don’t pack those winter things away yet!  We may need them in February!!

 Happy Valentine’s Day!
