Big picture

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. On April 18, a wall featuring the Trinity All-Stars will be posted downstairs, outside the gym doors. The All-Star Wall will contain 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 30th.


We are 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 tammyraabe@yahoo.com with your preferred classroom.
