Tipton Christian Academy is hosting their fourth annual spaghetti dinner and auction on Saturday, March 15, beginning at 5:30 p.m. All funds raised are used towards extra items that are needed for a new school to provide students with a quality education. The school currently has 187 students, ranging from P-K through sixth grade. Plans to add a seventh grade are underway for next year.
"This year we have decided to allocate all profits from this event to advance technology within our school, said PTO president Pam Sanders.
"We are hoping to raise enough funds to provide our students with a mobile lab to be shared by the classes."
The auction will have such items as "date night out" and "on the town" baskets, and some big ticket items. This is the fourth year for the auction, as well, and it encompasses both a silent auction and a live auction.
According to the website, TCA is a ministry of First Baptist Church Covington and is a progression of a pre-school ministry started over 20-years ago. The purpose of Tipton Christian Academy is to provide a challenging, Christ-centered education that will minister to the family and grow the child’s mind and heart for Christ.
