With that in mind, on Friday, April 26th, the current...

Donuts With Dad A Smash

What do you get when you mix donuts and coffee with TC Christian Dads and their kids? A rollicking good time filled with hugs, laughter, and silly faces. Dads (and other superheroes like uncles, grandpas, and assorted male role models) converged on TC Christian last week for PTO’s annual celebration of Fatherhood.  The cafeteria quickly...

With that in mind, on April 27 we’re recruiting as many helping hands as possible to do a quick Spring Clean.  From 8am-Noon we’ll attack tasks inside and out – windows, floors,...

We Love Our Volunteers!

A huge reason TC Christian succeeds is because of volunteers.  Whether it’s our team of lunchroom workers, our ever-present classroom helpers, our coaches and drivers, our facility maintainers, or our friends down at Double Edge – and everyone in between – volunteers are a key component of TCCS.  Ask them why they help and you’ll...
