Trinity Lutheran School

“Growing in Mind, Character, and Faith”

Week of September 11, 1917

School Year Begins:   Last week was a very successful, productive first week of school!  We hope your family has transitioned into a seamless school routine as well.

Back-to-School BBQ:  What a great turnout last Friday night for our annual Back-to-School BBQ!  Thanks for attending and for your contribution to the picnic supper.

Picture Day:  Lifetouch Pictures will be taking individual photos on Wednesday, September 20.  Forms were handed out on the first day of school.  [Extra forms are in the office.]  Please send your child’s order along on Picture Day next week.  If you send it in beforehand, your child’s teacher will hang on to it until picture day.

If you wish, please use this hyperlink for ordering/viewing pictures online:

The following is a note from Lifetouch about ordering:

“This year we cannot accept late paper flyers.   Parents have 2 weeks prior [to Picture Day and] up to 48 hours after each Picture Day to complete their online order, and paper order forms are only accepted [on] the day of photography… Our photographer will not be leaving behind a mailer for you, but rather a small handout you can give to the kids.  We really appreciate your help in getting the information out to the families prior to picture day.”

Before/After School Care:  Trinity’s Before/After School Care Program with Stephanie Freeland, the supervisor, is off to a good start. It opens at 7:00 am and runs until 8:05 am when school begins.  Students who arrive early by bus go to Before School Care but are not be charged.  After School Care runs from 3:05 pm when school ends to 6:00 pm.  A typical day includes time for a snack, physical activity, homework, and devotion. (We provide milk or juice after school, but students are expected to bring their own snacks.)  Students in 6th Grade and lower will need to use After School Care if they stay after school and wait for a later practice. Registration forms are available in the office.  If you have any questions, please call Mr. Whitney at 952-873-6320.

Youth Ministry Potluck:  On Sunday, September 17, we will be having a Youth Ministry Potluck.  The meal starts shortly after Sunday School around 11:30 am, so please bring a dish to pass.  Families with kids in Sunday School, Boy Pioneers, Girl Pioneers, or the STiC Youth Group are invited, and we will talk about plans for the school year.

Mission Collection last week during Chapel:   $12.22
