PARENT CONFERENCE

Look in your email inbox within a day about the Parent Conference Sign up. This year we are using an electronic form to sign up for the Parent conference which will be November 5th - 7th.

PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCE MEALS

Every fall our teachers spend a lot of time preparing for Parent/Teacher conferences and so we provide them with the fuel they need to get through the week. Please consider donating items for the meals or volunteering to assist with the meals. Here is the link: P-T Conference Meals


Items should be dropped off in the school office between 4-4:30 each day. If you need to drop off earlier, food items may be put in the kitchen (with a note) and then also leave a note with the school office so the set-up volunteer knows where to find the donated food items. Thank you!

Thank you Trinity Families

Trinity Families,

I cannot express my gratitude enough for your generous gift on the occasion of pastor appreciation this month. The Lord has blessed our Grace church families through Trinity school over many years. May God continue to bless our efforts in this corner of his kingdom as we walk and work together and pour out his rich mercy and love on your homes and your families.

  1. Set examples. Let children see you read
  2. Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep up with changing tastes and reading skills.
  3. Support our school's Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read

If you’re able to help any evening during the week we could use you help!! Please follow the link below to help out during the book fair!! Kids are always welcome when volunteering!!
