Mission Statement: We will prepare our students to be responsible members of the Christian community, strong in faith and equipped with the knowledge and skill to live as powerful, forgiven witnesses of Christ and his love.

Our theme for this year is:

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever.

~Hebrews 13:8

From the Principal:

Greetings!

We welcomed our visiting team for National Lutheran Schools Accreditation this week. We held our exit conference on Friday afternoon with the team and the teaching staff. The team recommends Trinity Lutheran School receive full accreditation status. We will receive their report with recommendations for improvements within the next two weeks. At that point, the report is sent to the Southern Illinois District for review, then on to the National office. We should have our final approval in early August. I will keep everyone posted.

This has been a long year of preparation for this process. Thank you to everyone who served on committees, prepared documents, and helped with meals and talking with the team during their visit. They were very impressed with all of the programs and services we offer.

Blessings,

Mrs. Boester
