2015 Rake & Run Service Event

On November 5th our 7th - 12th grade student Mentor Groups left campus to serve our community by raking and bagging leaves...Rake & Run. Two neighborhoods were pre-arranged for them to rake leaves, talk with and pray with the residents. Our students worked so hard and did a great job sharing Christ's love with others!

How Did Our October 27th NEXT STEP Open House Go?

In one word - GREAT! We had a number of prospective families visit with us along with many of YOU, our current families. Everyone reported having a great time talking with faculty, other parents and students to learn about TPCS this year and in the future. Thank you for inviting your friends to check us out. Remember...NEXT STEP has TWO purposes:

  • for prospective families to learn all about why they should consider Traders Point for their school
  • for YOU to talk with future teachers to find out what is ahead for your child

We will repeat NEXT STEP on Tuesday, February 9th @ 6:30 - 8:00 pm. If you missed out this time, put February 9th on your calendar now and invite friends to join you. In addition, our next Parent Coffee for current and prospective families is next Wednesday, November 18th @ 8:30 am. It's a great chance for everyone to learn the latest news about TPCS who can't make an evening event.
