LUTHERAN SCHOOLS WEEK

Trinity’s Kindergarten through 8th grade classes had so much fun with the lip sync battle on Tuesday. Check out the video below for a sampling of their wonderful performances:

 

Trinity Lutheran School will celebrate Lutheran Schools Week the week of February 24-28, 2020. “In All Things” is the theme for Trinity’s 2020 Lutheran Schools Week celebration.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

 

Lutheran Schools Week provides the network of 1,950 LCMS preschools, elementary schools and high schools with the opportunity to proclaim and celebrate God’s work in Lutheran schools. Lutheran schools are amazing incubators for faithful witness of God’s love through Christ by teachers and students alike.

Lutheran Schools Week Projects:

  • We will be making dog toys out of old t-shirts to give to the APL. If you have old t-shirts, please send them in to school. The students will braid them into dog toys.
  • We are also collecting books to give to a local charity, Basket of Hope, that delivers baskets to sick kids in the hospital. If possible, please bring in a new book. A Christian book would be a great choice, so that we can share God’s love with these children.
  • The students will also be assembling bags of items for the homeless in our community. We have already bought some items with a Thrivent grant, but if you would like to contribute monetarily so that we could add more items to the bags, that would be very helpful.

 

We are also collecting items for other upcoming projects. If you are able to send any of these items to school, it will be a great help!

  • paper towel
  • toilet paper tubes
  • egg cartons
  • cardboard pieces
  • milk lids
  • bottle caps
