SUNDAY SCHOOL SINGS THIS SUNDAY, MAY 6, AT 10:45 AM

Big picture

Trinity is celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week this week (April 30 – May 4)! 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 into the classroom this week.


Thanks for helping make their week one for the record books!

Thank you also to the parents, grandparents and friends of Trinity for volunteering during the walk. The forecast wasn't promising, but the rain held off and the walk was incredibly enjoyable because of your help!


Lastly, THANK YOU to the Trinity Lutheran students for giving your time and energy in collecting money for your school and for bringing your enthusiasm to the pep rally and on the walk. You raised almost $9,000 for technology and should be very proud of this accomplishment. Our children are one of our Creator's greatest blessings and they showed that in many ways on Friday. TGTG!

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.
