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 TO TRINITY...

Dear Trinity students and families,


"I thank my God every time I remember you." The Apostle Paul wrote that to Christians in the city of Philippi because of the partnership in the gospel that they shared. And I thank our God for the partnership we share as well. I love sharing God's Word with you in chapel, and I know that message is what you and I need now and that it will guide us throughout our lives. I also thank you for the generous gift cards and the embroidered blanket. It is very much appreciated! God bless the rest of your school year!


In Christ,

John Borgwardt,

Pastor at Living Word, Waukesha


Dear Parents, Students, and Staff of TLS,


Thank you for taking time today to remember me (and the other pastors) for Pastor Appreciation in chapel. I’m very grateful for the kind card, monogrammed soft blanket, and generous gift card you shared with me (it’s going to be fun shopping with Mrs. O later this weekend). I love serving God with you by sharing God’s Word and getting to know you and your families. I pray we will have Trinity students right now who think about becoming future pastors or teachers in our WELS (we need you) so we can continue to share Jesus’ saving name with future generations. And if you do, I pray you will be so appreciated by church families as I am today. See you in God’s house and in the hallways later this week. I’m praying for you and please say one for me. God bless you!


In Jesus’ love,

Pastor O.


Dear students and faculty,


Thank you for the wonderful service last week at Pastor Appreciation Day. And thank you for the gift. Even though we are simple, humble servants of Christ, it is nice to be appreciated by those you serve. Thank you again.
