Friday Memo: January 26, 2018

Nota Bene!

A few reminders trom the TLS Parent Handbook

  • Toys & Electronics Policy – Toys cannot be brought from home unless the classroom teacher has given permission to do so for “show and tell.” Cell phones, video game systems, iPods, and any other similar electronics are not allowed. If a child must bring a cell phone to school it must be turned off and left in the child’s backpack. TLS is not responsible for lost cell phones. If such toys or electronics are brought to school, they will be confiscated, and parents must meet with the teacher or the Headmaster to reclaim them.
  • Book Policy – TLS maintains a book whitelist for students in Grades 3-8. Students in these grades may bring in a book from home that is on this list. Because so much vulgar and obscene literature is easily available to children and young teens, and because TLS promotes the reading of great literature over mediocre literature, books brought from home need to be approved prior to bringing them to school. Since any such list must always be changing and can never be comprehensive, parents are encouraged to request or suggest additions to the book whitelist. This list can be obtained from your child’s teacher or viewed and printed here.

Our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, and all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ. (1 Corinthians 10:1-4)
