Make sure that they get a good night's sleep and a good breakfast each morning. Thank you, for your help in making this testing a success!


Dear Brothers & Sisters,

What a joy it was to worship with you and pastors around the area at Chapel this morning! Thank you for the lovely card and gift enclosed that you gave me. I am blessed to be your pastor - and today brought home that fact in a wonderful way. I thank God for the privilege of serving you with Jesus Word. I thank you God for you! May Jesus keep you in his tender care.

In Christ,

Pastor Christie

Dear students, Parents, and Staff of TLS,

Thank you for taking time to remember me (and the other pastors) in today’s chapel for Pastor Appreciation. I’m so grateful for the sweet card and generous gift of money you shared with me (I’m planning to use the money for gas and taking my wife and daughter Hannah out for dinner when we see her at the end of the month at Martin Luther College in MN). I so enjoy serving God with you by sharing God’s Word and getting to know you and your families. I love seeing you in the TLS hallways (and especially in church) and the great hugs and high-fives I get from you. It’s so great to study God’s Word together and sharing Jesus with our friends and family – especially those who don’t know who Jesus is and what He’s done to save us. Keep sharing your faith with your family, friends, and neighbors – you make SUCH a difference when you do. And keep those high-fives and hugs coming. I’m praying for you and please say a prayer for my family today. May God richly bless you for your kindness.

In Jesus’ love,

Pastor O

Dear TLS school family,

When I opened the encouraging card and gift you gave me for helping with chapel at Trinity, I said, "Wow!" outloud. I thank you for your generosity and especially the privilege of sharing God's message of forgiveness and salvation in your chapels this year. With winter closing in, and after years of stuffing socks into the cracks of our front door to keep the cold out, I will put your gift toward a new front door. God will continue to bless Trinity as you continue to share the good news of Jesus. To Him be the glory!

In Christ,

Pastor John Borgwardt

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!

Let's take an "Artic Adventure", to this years Book Fair! Snow Much to Read!

Tuesday, November 5: 3:30-7:00PM

Thursday, November 7: 3:30-6:00PM

In addition, here is the link to the online version of the book fair which runs from October 30th - November 12th.

Its a fact!: Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here's what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skill and love for reading:

  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!! Will have some coloring sheet available for them during your volunteer time but also feel free to bring them quiet activities/ snacks to help occupy them! ​
