TBS Nation,

Sometimes it is just interesting the way God brings things about in our lives.  All can identify in that we arrive in places we never thought possible, met individuals that we never knew existed, have had opportunities we never would have imagined and yet we still take many steps with selfish ambition.  Why do we think we can get away with this self-serving ideology?  I know the answer and it is because the sin nature is very powerful and we are not living in our glorified bodies yet!  I hope today that you can walk your course in the light of Jesus and pursue the path with His wisdom and guidance.  Be encouraged today!

TBS Nation,

Good morning TBS Nation and welcome to Wednesday / Awana Gran Prix Day!  Also, this morning Randy Martin is at the Surgery Center having a procedure on his shoulder.  He will be out of commission for the next few weeks as he recovers from this issue.  Randy has had shoulder problems for many years and is now finally having it corrected.  We are praying for you Randy and hope you recover quickly!

Today is Wednesday and Chapel Day.  Another chance to have our young people engaged in the preaching of God’s word.  My prayer is that the words of truth sink in and make a difference in their lives.

TBS Nation,

Finally a day with the sun starting to peek out of the horizon.  It is always comforting to me to see the bright light in the sky as it is a reminder of the bright glory of Jesus Christ and God the Father.  We do have special privilege as believers and we do need to share this with others around us.  I prayed and asked this morning that God wold give me special encounters to be able to share the gospel to those he puts in my path.  Most of that opportunity is with your children!  It is awesome to watch them grow like the flowers that are coming up out of the ground this week.  Each is special and each has its own beauty!

It is hot lunch day and I am thankful for the opportunity that brings for the kids.  Also I am looking forward to the Awana Gran Prix that will be this Wednesday.  I hope you can make it for the evening of food and fellowship!  The event will be held in the TBS gym and starting at 5:00pm there will be dinners ready from the concession stand.

    Here is the look at your day:

TBS Nation,

March has zipped by and we are now getting very close to our Spring Break / Easter Vacation.  Many schools have already taken the break and it may seem like we are late with our choice, however we usually follow Easter and surround time off to recognize the Resurrection!  I hope you are looking forward to the holiday as we turn our attention to the cross.

Rain and Muggy seem to be hanging around today.  I was hoping for a clear and sunny day to dry up some of this mud but I guess we will have to wait for that later this week. Thankfully we have a pretty normal week with no extra meetings or events other than the Awana Grand Prix.  If you are still willing to help in the kitchen I could use some help from 5:30pm to 7:00pm.

Here is your Monday:

7:00am – Before School Care (Jeremy Shaeffer)
8:15am – Normal School Day
Hot Lunch Menu for TUESDAY – Hot Ham and Cheese / Fruit / Dessert
3:15pm – Academic Help / Detention

TBS Nation,

Hello and welcome to Tuesday!  Today is World Down Syndrome Day and for the Spoor family this is particularly special.  I know many of you show your support to their family in many ways.  As a school it is important to bear up one another burdens.  Let’s pray for the Spoor family as they navigate the ongoing health needs of Lydia.  She is special and a gift from God and is in no way less of God’s image.  It is incredible to me that many living in this world see these children and adults as misfits or even less human.  Speaking from experience, my cousin Philip Bozzi,who lives in Paris France, knows God and speaks of God often which provides my aunt and uncle gospel opportunities each day!  This is to the praise of his glory!

DSAW – This Event Happens Each Fall to Increase Awareness
Talk to Tiffany Spoor for more details:

TBS Nation,

What is our Christian Education worth?  Should we keep doing it?  I read a good piece from Fox News early this morning as I was getting ready for the day at TBS.  Our education is important however it has to be more than education and facts that mold and shape the hearts of our students.  Parents and Teachers have to literally model a real relationship with Christ and give children/students opportunities and activities to stand and exert their own convictions in our present wold.  Read this article and give response as you see Christian Education in our world today.

Here are a few comments I copied from the article written today for Fox News

Fox News

“The future of Christianity in the post-Christian West hangs in the balance.  If the faith is going to survive within churches and communities, then Christians are going to have to become far more serious and intentional about education…

For serious Christian parents, education cannot be simply a matter of building their child’s transcript to boost her chance of making it into the Ivy League. If this is the model your family follows (perhaps with a sprinkle of God on top for seasoning), you will be hard-pressed to form countercultural Christian adults capable of resisting the disorders of our time.
The kind of schooling that will build a more resilient, mature faith in young Christians is one that imbues them with a sense of order, meaning, and continuity. It’s one that integrates knowledge into a harmonious vision of the whole, one that unites all things that are, were, and ever will be in God….

If it’s true that a simplistic, anti-intellectual Christian faith is a thin reed in the gale of academic life, it is also true that faith that’s primarily intellectual—that is, a matter of mastering information—is deceptively fragile. Equipping Christian students to thrive in a highly secularized, even hostile environment is not a matter of giving them a protective shell. The shell may crack under pressure or be discarded. Rather, it must be about building internal strength of mind and heart.”

Rod Dreher


    There is no question in my mind as principal and leader of our school that what we are doing at TBS is highly important and crucial to the next generation.  A wise man told me that we should not take fences (boundaries & convictions) down just to make things easier!

I trust that you as parents see this as a matter of high importance and understand the sacrifice you are making on behalf of your child is not just to sprinkle “God” into the platter of an education.  We are called to do a very important job as teachers in our Christian School and we should expect our students to stand with their own convictions and standards as they grow.  This is why we should not tolerate a lazy and care-free attitude.  This is why we should expect results that are more than academic.  This is why we should be sending emails to you as parents concerning character issues we see.  This is why the teacher/pupil/parent relationship is a difficult and rewarding at the same time.


K3-K4 / Mrs. Krause’s Class is just as important as 12th Grade!

Hope this brings encouragement!

TBS Nation,

Good afternoon TBS Nation.  Hope your day was not to messy with the snow inconvenience.  I am thankful that the outlook for the next few days moves in a warming trend and not the other way.  Spring will be here soon enough and we will be complaining that it is to hot!  I know, I know, most of us want to try that side of the season!

Jr. High American Republic Test / Tomorrow!

Tuesday presents a Jr. High goal.  I have challenged the TBS Jr. High class to achieve a C or higher as a class and any student achieving this goal will receive a McDonalds Shamrock Shake on me!  I am doing my best to help motivate students to achieve and not be fine with status quo.  This is a hard thing to do when I sense, and in some cases, observe poor character choices.  Mr. Hanback and I are trying to make small gains with students as we pull them to a higher level of self confidence and a higher level of spiritual maturity.  Jr. High years are tough no matter who you are.  This recognized, TBS can do better (both student and staff) to strive for better results.  We hope to be an encouragement tomorrow after the American Republic Test (hint:  They should study tonight!).


Keep in mind that TBS still has some ongoing prayer requests:

Struska Home (Cancer treatments & Healthy recovery)
Lydia Spoor – Ongoing health issues  / Wisdom with Dr.’s and Specialists
Angie Bush (Recovery from Surgery)
TBS Families
TBS Students – Specifically spiritual maturity and growth / attitudes
