DAY OF GIVING - FRIDAY MORNING, APRIL 27
*DAY OF GIVING CHALLENGE - Students, remember to bring in pre-packaged snacks to your classroom for our community workers BY APRIL 26. Whichever class collects the most will win a Sundae Party!
What do we need from you? There are still some volunteer spots open/donation items needed. Please click on this link to direct you to the sign-up genius.
We have many fun and interesting activities lined up for all grades of Trinity. During the morning we will be:

· Helping put together gifts for Teacher Appreciation week

Trinity will be celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week the week of April 30 – May 4! This year we will be celebrating our Team of Teachers and treating them like the All-Stars they are. A wall featuring the Trinity All-Stars has been posted downstairs outside the gym doors, which contains wish list items for our teachers. If you are able, please consider taking a wish list request for a teacher(s) and bring it in to the classroom during the week of April 30.
We are also planning a luncheon for the All Stars on Friday, May 4, from 11:30 – 1:00. We are looking for volunteers to help cover the classrooms during that time, so if you are interested, please email Tammy Raabe at email@example.com with your preferred classroom.
Thanks for helping make their week one for the record books!

8TH GRADE GRADUATION RECEPTION
1st-3rd-5th and 7th Grade parents:
Graduation will be here before you know it. Since graduation is a special time for our 8th grade students, we would like them to know how proud we are of them and their accomplishments over their years at Trinity Lutheran School. It is a tradition that the families of students in 1st, 3rd and 5th grades donate food items. The 7th Grade families oversee the decorating, refreshments, serving and clean up. We would like to get organized early, so please take a look at this Sign-Up Genius link: GRADUATION RECEPTION.
