J-Term Updates: TPCA Students on Mission to Love and Serve Others at Home and Abroad!
J-Term is an innovative curricular feature modeled after the college January term concept that is designed to increase learning opportunities for TPCS students. Students experience educational options beyond the normal high school curriculum and have the unique opportunity to literally travel around the world through a variety of educational and mission trips.
This year, our students had a variety of options:
1. An overseas mission trip to Nicaragua
2. Local ministry in the Indianapolis area through Mission Indy
3. Life Calling trip out West to Colorado, Arizona, and California
4. Job Shadows and Internships
Check out our Facebook page to view TONS of photos and updates about the trips!!

Nurses Clinic Update
Welcome back and happy New Year! I want to remind all families of our school policy regarding carrying medication at school:
Per the policy, students of any age are NOT allowed to carry any medication, including over-the-counter medication on school property, during school hours, unless they have written permission from a parent for OTC medication and/or a physician for prescription medications. This does include cough drops. On 2 separate occasions, loose pills have been found on the floor inside our school building in these last 2 months. Please make sure that your students are not carrying any medication in their backpacks or their pockets, for the safety of all children.
As always, I am happy to collect and administer any medication that your children need, they just need to come through the clinic.
One more reminder regarding immunizations: If you have any updated vaccination records, please let me know so that I can maintain current records in the medical files.
Monique Clupper, RN, BSN
