Troy Christian Elementary students served their community on Wednesday, October 10 during our Hike 'n Serve event. This event allowed our students to be SALT in their world now by preparing packets of candy as a thank-you gift for our public servants.
If you couldn't make it to the college fair at Troy Christian on September 17, you missed learning about some fantastic Christian colleges. It was an honor to host the North American Coalition for Christian Admissions Professionals (NACCAP) fall college fair in partnership with Cedarville University.
Safety and security! As parents and educators, it is continuously at the forefront of our thinking. We seek every opportunity to harden our schools as targets against anyone who would seek to do harm. Our hearts’ desire is to guard and defend the most precious things to us...our children. At Troy Christian, we are in a continual process of evaluating our security, and we do all that we can to improve and adjust in this vital area.

Knitting a New Perspective on Parenting
I was born in 1960. So, my childhood and teen years were completed by the end of the 1970’s. The first television that I remember was black and white. If you wanted to change the channel to one of the five available you had to get up and walk across the room. Play time was almost always outside. We looked around the neighborhood, scouting for someone else who was looking for something to do. Eventually, there would be several of us playing some game. We had enough kids in the area to get together a football or baseball game. We created race courses through the nearby woods to race our bikes. Our parents didn’t worry much about our being safe, as long as we told them what we were doing and where we would be. One family had a big bell outside on their front porch. When the bell rang you could hear it all over the neighborhood. That signal meant that their daughters had five minutes to be in their house.
