The staff salaries and food expenses are paid for solely by the funds collected for lunch. Any amounts in your student's lunch accounts that do not get used this year, will roll over into the next school year. You can monitor you students lunch balance and receive email alerts at a threshold of your choosing via Power School. Thank you for keeping positive balances in your student's lunch account!

Help us do that in this fun, social small group Bible studies that meet in member homes or comfortably on campus once per week for five weeks. More than 110+ Trinity members participated in the past Fall session. Spend 45 minutes in a Bible study and 15 minutes (or MORE) of social chit-chat. Just add tasty snacks and drinks.
