Lions' Day
This Friday, May 20, our students and staff will spend the day celebrating all of God's blessings over The Christ School this year. This is our annual school-wide end of year celebration day AND class celebration day. There will be outdoor games, a spirit station, yearbook signing, a dunk tank, and more! Look over the schedule for the day and find a time to join us! Students should wear their 20th celebration shirts, uniform bottoms, and sneakers. Contact event chair, Amy Daly, with questions.

Volunteer Help is Needed!
Volunteer support is essential to the success of this special day for our students. There are still a variety of opportunities throughout the day where you can serve. Please help us celebrate an amazing 20th year at TCS!
Scholarship, Service and Leadership
Last week, Congressman Daniel Webster visited our campus to present a Congressional Medal to 8th grade student Sierra Tagman. We were honored that he was here to help us celebrate the accomplishments of our students and help further their passion for their community.  We are delighted to share Congressman Webster's Newsletter, in which his visit to The Christ School is featured. 
Summer Learning
We are pleased to announce that once again The Christ School will offer our students rising into grades 1-8 the opportunity to avoid the summer "brain drain" by participating in the 2016 Summer Learning Program. Summer is a wonderful time for children to relax and have fun, but it is also a time for parents and children to enjoy learning together. Reading over the summer is critical in helping... 
Expanding Lessons
After studying the causes of the American Revolution as well as the structure of the Constitution, the 8th grade students put their knowledge to work in the trial of John Hancock. The students researched their roles and created scripts for the trial, applying what they learned about American rights and the judicial system. Half of the eighth grade class worked on the prosecution team and half worked on the defense. Both sides did an excellent job presenting their cases; however, after thoughtful deliberation, Hancock was found not guilty. 
Experiential Learning
Sixth grade Earth Scientists took a walking field trip to Lake Cherokee this week. There, they tested water samples to determine the pH level of the water, as well as the amount of ammonia, nitrogen and dissolved oxygen in the water. They closely observed the plant and animal life and determined whether or not other water sources appeared to be draining into the lake. The students also enjoyed history class outdoors where they wrote haiku poems and journaled about God sightings.
Building Bridges
Tape, popsicle sticks, straws and gum-drop fruits? Third grade students were challenged to create bridges using a combination of these diverse materials. Working in teams, they planned their designs and determined which materials would work best together to make the strongest bridge that could span a distance of 12 inches. Each bridge was as unique as each team's construction methods. It was a wonderful lesson that incorporated engineering, math, science, art, teamwork, and self-control; it was hard not to eat the gum-drop fruits!
Celebrating our Athletes
The Christ School celebrated our middle school athletes with our first ever Sports Recognition Chapel on May 12. Each middle school athlete received a glass star for each team performance. These athletes roared through the 2015-2016 athletic year, showing strength and character. The Christ School thanks Coach Costin and Coach Worden, who have retired from coaching at TCS. They served our Lions with love and energy!  We are especially proud of our 8th grade athletes who have lead the way this year and worked so hard during their time at TCS. Here are some 8th grade athletic highlights:
Tuition Payments

Summer in the City 
Summer is almost here and that means it's time for fun and friendship at Summer in the City!  Registration for Summer in the City closes on Friday, May 27. Visit our website for details and to register.  
Used Uniforms Needed
Do you have a stack of gently-used uniforms that your children have outgrown?  We encourage you to drop them off at TCS before the end of the school year so we can restock our used uniform store. We hope to have a large selection of uniforms to help our families be ready for the 2016-17 school year. Your uniform donations are appreciated!
