Study Hall & Fellowship Hall

Study Hall and Fellowship Hall meet in the gym and are open only for those students attending TOMBALL CLASSES ON THURSDAYS. They are not for siblings. Students should not come very early before a class and should not stay very long after their last class unless their parent is a teacher. This service exists only to provide a safe place for the student until their first opportunity to go home.

*  Study Hall is from 8:30-12:30 and is for quiet studying only.  All students MUST do quiet reading or homework.
*  Fellowship Hall is from 12:30-4:30. Students may also choose to study quietly during this time.
*  All students must be in a classroom or in the Study/Fellowship Hall at all times. Students are NOT allowed to hang out in the hallways, bathrooms, outside or in the parking lot.
*  For your child’s safety, students must wait in the Study/Fellowship Hall (not outside) to be picked up.
*  Parents must be at classes promptly at 4:00 to supervise their students who are out of class at that time and are waiting for other siblings to finish at 4:30. A late fee will be charged if students are not picked up by 4:30.
*  While studying or reading, music may be listened to quietly with earphones only.
*  No movies. No computer games.
*  If a student is on the TCH campus for most of the day, we advise bringing a snack or lunch. They will not have access to the kitchen.

Student Conduct

Students should always be respectful of teachers, other students, and the church property. It is a privilege to be here!

Students may not run or horseplay in the church. They must be very quiet in the halls and restrooms.
*  Students may NOT hang out in cars or in the parking lot unless a parent supervises them.
*  Tobacco products, alcohol, or any other harmful substances are prohitbited on campus. Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken in the case of an infraction.

Closed Campus

Every student must sign in when they arrive on campus and sign out when they leave. Once a student has signed out, TCH is no longer responsible for their safety.
