TEACHER APPRECIATION - THANK YOU!

Thank you to everyone who contributed or volunteered their time for Teacher Appreciation Week to make it a success! The teachers told me how much they enjoyed all the events and treats throughout the week, which wouldn't be possible without all of you. THANK YOU!!!

8TH GRADE GRADUATION RECEPTION

1st-3rd-5th and 7th Grade parents:

Graduation will be here before you know it...Thursday, May 24. Since this is a special day 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.

WATER REFILLING STATIONS

If you haven’t walked the halls of Trinity lately….You may not have noticed we now have 3 Water Refilling Stations (like you see at airports etc) in our school to easily refill your water bottles and stay hydrated. They are located with the drinking fountains outside the gym, outside the office and by the 4th grade class room. Also, the old and more difficult to use drinking fountain by daycare got a face lift so the little kids will have an easier time using it.


This was made possible with funds from Parent Council that were raised from events like Culver's Night and other fellowship nights. So thanks to all the families that partake in these fun events – not only do the families enjoy the food with friends, but it truly does benefit Trinity!


Parent Council thanks you for your continued support of fellowship nights and other Parent Council sponsored activities. If ever interested in what Parent Council does or how to get involved (as much or as little as you’d like), just ask! We would love to have you!
