Worms, crayfish, mollusks, sea stars, and frogs were the topic of conversation in the science lab at school today. 1st through 5th graders enjoyed a day full of “discovery” while dissecting different animals in the science lab. There were all sorts of surprises and findings to be made both under the microscope and under the scalpel. The lab was buzzing with chatter and excitement as students discovered new and wonderful things about the makeup and about the wonder of God’s creatures. There is nothing like beholding the wonder of discovery in a child’s eyes.
It was a day on, not a day off for the student body of TCPS as they celebrated Martin Luther King Day with a chapel service and a day of community service.
Mr. Ron Hill came and spoke to both the Upper School and the Lower School, enriching their understanding of Dr. King’s mission and legacy. His speech ended with the student body giving him a standing ovation.
Mayor Tom Rowland also attended the celebration. He addressed the crowd, sharing his thoughts about Martin Luther King’s dream and challenging students to be beacons of light by sharing their lives with others through genuine Christian Service.
The day ended with both Upper and Lower School students completing service projects and with students reflecting on the reason they celebrated a day on, not a day off.
Our 3rd – 5th graders had the opportunity to participate in a STEM Lego Robotics enrichment program for 5 weeks during the fall semester. Students took on the title of Computer Programmer and Robotics Engineer as they met the challenge of building and programming their Lego NXT Mindstorm robots.
