School Spirit

Spirit Week/Homecoming - Spirit week and Homecoming is a time of celebration at TCS. The week begins with themed dress days chosen by the class officers from each grade and culminates with our Friday night homecoming game where we welcome home our alumni.

Spirit Day –The first Monday of every month, students are allowed to wear any TCS t-shirt which has been purchased through the school (i.e. band, SST, sports team, etc.).

Student Leadership

Christian Leadership Council (CLC)-consists of specially selected 9th-12th grade students who wish to be leaders in the truest sense. The CLC serves the school and students in numerous ways, assuming responsibility for the day to day atmosphere of the school.

Class Officers- Students in 6th -12th grades elect class officers at the beginning of the school year. Officer postitions include President, Vice-President and Secretary/Treasurer.

Temple Chapel Leaders (TCL) is an organization designed with the intent of training and equipping musicians, worship leaders, and sound technicians. With an emphasis on serving the local church, TCL gives 8th-12th grade students an opportunity to produce a full-scale, live worship experience to be presented in the weekly chapel services. These leaders are taught how to build a worship service from the ground up, rehearse with a band, and lead their peers in song. TCL has proven to be the backbone of our school's weekly worship experience. 


Chapel- Chapel takes place each Wednesday for students in 6th-12th grades. Speakers come from school faculty, pastors from Temple Baptist Church or individuals from outside churches and ministries. Worship is led by TCS students. Chapel provides an opportunity for Temple students, faculty, staff and parents to come together to experience growth as they learn and worship together as a member of the body of Christ.

Spiritual Emphasis Week- Temple Christian School believes our mission is to train up a generation of students who will change the world with the power of the Gospel, we intentionally craft environments that seek to encourage our student body in their faith journey. One of the ways we do that is by setting aside the time for our Spiritual Emphasis Weeks. For one week in the Fall and one week in the Spring, we essentially have Chapel services for several days in a row. Typically, our Pastor unpacks the theme for the year in the Fall Spiritual Emphasis Week. In the Spring, we typically bring in a special speaker to bring a challenge to our students. We feel that Spiritual Emphasis Week is one more way that Temple Christian School is Decidedly Different & Distinctly Christian.
