We've finally arrived at the last day of school for 2018-19. Please note the following:
This past Thursday, we had a very exciting science day. Volvo Group, which has a local Hagerstown site, sponsored a girls' science day at our local Discovery Station for grades 1st - 8th to encourage interest in science and technology. Volvo group team members organized the activities and made sure everyone had a team member. The youngest girls built cardboard cannons, 3rd and 4th graders made disk launchers, 5th and 6th graders made ballistas, and 7th and 8th graders made a circuit based radio. After these projects were complete, the students had time to explore the exhibits and enjoy the Discovery Station.
See our photo gallery for many exciting photos from this event. We would like to extend our thanks to the Volvo Group for sponsoring this day and the Discovery Station for hosting this wonderful event. The students enjoyed the experience and came away with an excitement for science and technology.
While the girls had fun at the Discovery Station, the boys from grades 3 - 8 were busy making robots. Mr. Molder helped the boys assemble their robots and everyone enjoyed the finished product. Check out our gallery for photos of this class experience!
TCA high school students enjoyed a fun day at Escape This! What a great way to learn how to work as a team. We love taking our students on fun field trips and everyone had a great time.
Attention Parents and Friends of TCA, please take note of the following events:
We now have a donation page on our website and we are currently raising funds for our 2019/20 school year. The money raised will help us keep tuition rates affordable. TCA currently offers rates that are 60% lower than the average of other private schools in the area and we are able to do so with generous support from our friends, family and sponsors. We prefer to keep rates as low as possible so that we can reach families of every income level. All support given goes directly to TCA operating costs and helps us provide a Christian education to many families who might otherwise have limited choices. We are a non-profit organization and will provide a year end tax receipt. Every dollar helps and we thank you for your support. We also happily accept donations of equipment, supplies, books, etc.
Today we'd like to welcome students back to the last quarter of the 2018/19 school year! Upcoming dates to keep in mind are:
On 4/4/19, TCA held it's first Talent Show. We challenged students from all grades to perform in 5 minutes or less. The purpose was to give them experience of performing in front of an audience. The goal was to build confidence and overcome shyness in performing. The younger they learn to perform and speak, the easier it gets as they grow up. We had 12 performances and we are very proud of each student who had the courage to present. Photos are in the photo gallery. Next year we hope to see more students present and showcase their God given talents.
We are coming to the end of our 3rd marking period this week! It is hard to believe we are getting near the end of the school year. Early dismissal will be at 2:30pm for students finished with their work.
Talented students are participating in our first ever talent show, April 4th. We are looking forward to an exciting time with our students as they strengthen their presentation skills of performing in front of an audience. The trophy will be awarded to the class voted most talented and will sit in their classroom until the following years talent show.
We've finally made it to Spring Break! TCA will be closed from March 11 - 14. We will re-open on March 18th and look forward to seeing all rested and happy students back at that time.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
