TCS on Facebook

Our dear Mrs. McCartney(Neerhof) is in her final month of teaching at TCS and we are excited for what God has planned for her! We are also sad to have to say "goodbye" at the same time. We are preparing to send her off with a blessing next month during our year-end celebration and we are wondering if there are any TCS alumni or staff that would like to share any memories with us about their time with Mrs. M/N? If so, you can submit something to the office via email at or by popping in to the school office to record a small message. We are compiling a small video that we can share at graduation. Please DO NOT like or comment on this post as we are trying to keep this a surprise from her. ... See MoreSee Less
