ANNOUNCEMENTS

Pastor Appreciation Day: Wednesday, October 11, is Pastor Appreciation Day at TLS. Trinity students, faculty and families will be thanking all six pastors from Trinity and our sister churches who help with the weekly chapel service. We will be presenting each pastor with a small gift of appreciation for the wonderful work they do at our chapel service that day at 8:45 a.m. Please join us. We are asking for a small donation of $1-$5 from each student or family to cover the costs of the gifts - however, don't let that amount limit your appreciation. You are certainly welcome to give more! Please bring the donation to the school office by Monday, October 9. Each pastor is invited to eat lunch with the students that day as well. Help us thank our pastors for all they do!

Pastor John Borgwardt (Living Word - Waukesha), Pastor Jonathan Arndt (Reformation – Genesee), Pastor Timothy Gerbing (Christ - Pewaukee), Pastor Jason Hacker (Grace – Waukesha), Pastor Aaron Christie (Trinity), Pastor Scott Oelhafen (Trinity), and Pastor Lawrence Gates (Trinity).


Background Checks: All adult volunteers, field trip chaperones, and coaches must undergo a background check each year per the Board of Education policy. This year we made it more convenient to share your information by going to the school website and clicking the link or simply click here LINK. All background checks must be completed prior to the day of the event – including field trips. Because there can be a wait for clearance, we need you to submit your information 3 – 5 business days prior to the event you are involved in. We still need information from a number of chaperones for field trips happening October 6th – 19th! Thank you for your involvement at Trinity and thank you for helping us by submitting your information promptly!


OTC Medication: You must provide for your student and have a signed consent on file. Medication Administration Consent Form.


Singing Schedule


Extended Hours Program Reminder:

For the safety of all our students, any student who arrives prior to 8:15 a.m. MUST sign into EHP! Thank you for your cooperation. Also, if you will be using this program, please click on this link to review the policies: EHP Policies


Pre-Planned Absences: In the event your student MUST miss any or all of a scheduled school day, please fill out the Pre-Planned Absence Form (link on page 2) and turn it into the school office ASAP. Consult the TLS Handbook for detailed information on school attendance.
