TLS Weekly News

February 11, 2016

The Spirit has given each of us a special way of serving others. 1Corinthians 6:6-7


We will showcase the skills and talents of our students in several ways on one big day, Tuesday, March 8th!

TALENT SHOW, 1pm: The Annual TLS Talent Show will feature our students in ways we may not have seen before! We've had family acts, ensembles, duets, solos.... singing, dancing, martial arts, instruments, gymnastics, shooting hoops....the talents are abundant. Watch for the sign up sheet for try-outs, planned for the last week of February.

ART SHOW: After the Talent Show, you'll get to walk through a gallery of framed student art by PK-8th grade students that will be available for purchase. Students have submitted final projects and we are excited to see their work on display! The Art Show will be open from 3pm to 6pm on March 8th.

COFFEE HOUSE: Our Middle School Coffee House is a tradition that gets better every year. The 6th-8th grade students perform, emcee, provide refreshments, and generally host this event. It's a great night for families to enjoy together and encourage our kids!

Details will be forthcoming!

Grandparents' Open House

Please be sure to check Friday Folders for the info on our Open House to welcome Grandparents on Friday, March 18 from 1-2:30 pm.

Save the Date!

Trinity Lutheran School hosts an annual Benefit Auction each spring. This year's event will be held on Friday, April 22nd.

Please note that this date is a CHANGE from the original school calendar. The other calendar change for that week is the planned Early Release day will be on Friday, 4/22 rather than Wednesday, 4/20. We will remind everyone as we get closer to the date!

Please save the date and plan to attend - it is always a night of great fun and celebration as we show support for our school! This year's theme is "All You Need is Love," so start planning your groovy outfit for a really far-out night. Peace out!

Save the Date #2: The K-8 annual Field Day at Bremen High School has been set for May 18.

REMINDER! Early Release next Wednesday, February 17 at 1pm. These afternoons are faculty work sessions dedicated to studying assessment data and student performance.

CPR/AED Training

It's Healthy Heart month, so Parish Nurse Stephanie Stanley is hosting CPR/AED Classes each Saturday in February. Classes begin at 9am, and usually don't last longer than 4 hours. You must RSVP to participate by e-mailing Nurse Stanley directly The cost of the class is $10 dollars a person, or $15 per family. This is a significant savings from many other programs and a great opportunity for you or your family to be prepared for an emergency situation.
