FINE ARTS

Trinity Lutheran School places a high value on the fine arts, with music, visual and performing arts incorporated in purposeful ways from early childhood through 8th grade. With two art studios (one for primary students and another for middle school), and a designated music room, Trinity is blessed with ample space for students to explore their creative gifts.

At the early childhood level, music and art activities are woven into the school day. Chapel services offer additional opportunities for students to sing and gain experience with a variety of instruments. Kindergarten – 4th grade students are introduced to more structured singing and vocal activities in choir class and enjoy art projects and creative activities with their classroom teachers throughout the week. In middle school, Trinity students enjoy weekly art class with the staff art teacher from Lutheran High School, and have the option of continuing with choir classes through our elective classes program.

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, students lead congregational Advent services, giving them an opportunity to use their musical gifts to serve the church. Class choirs also contribute to church services throughout the year.

The recorder and handbells are introduced in the primary grades, and middle school students have the option of choosing an instrument and participating in the Beginner or Advanced Band. Trinity Lutheran School also offers a strings club after school for students interested in learning to play the violin, viola, or guitar.

Each spring, we enjoy celebrating our students’ musical and artistic gifts with the K-4 Art Showcase and the Middle School Art Show.

 

Celebrating Variety in Learning Styles

At Trinity Lutheran School, we value the uniqueness of each of our students and understand the importance of variety in teaching methods and approach. Our education inclusion strategy celebrates differences in learning styles and promotes a stronger sense of community in the classroom.

Igniting a Life-Long Love Learning

We acknowledge that students are motivated learners when the subject coincides with their natural interests. By supplementing standard curriculum with creative and innovative topics - through our music, outdoor ed, and elective programs - we seek to ignite a life-long love of learning in our students.

Clearing the Obstacles of Learning

We are dedicated to addressing the emotional and spiritual health of our students, through a variety of methods, including implementation of Christian conflict resolution curriculum, faculty training guided by licensed counselors, visits from Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry, and most importantly, regular classroom prayer time focusing on God's promises for our lives.
