Despite a stiff breeze, a smattering of raindrops, and the reality that summer vacation is well and truly over, the students and staff at TC Christian were in high spirits as the 2019/2020 school year got underway.
Arrivees were greeted with a ‘high five’ by Superintendent VanSchepen, who braved the elements to see as many in person as possible. The next step was running the traditional gauntlet of delicious sweet treats served by the Seniors, before the Middle and High schoolers headed towards the gym for words of welcome and introductions. On the way, newcomers were greeted by veterans and absorbed into various friend-groups.
Across the building in Elementary, the mood was a mix of high excitement as the grade schoolers reconnected with old buddies, and nervous anticipation as first-timers said bye to moms and dads. From all accounts, everyone was very brave and happily navigated the day.
