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


Greetings From the Principal:

Update 7 11 18

This has been an exciting week. We received the official documents from Mr. Fick accepting the position as 7th and 8th grade teacher. What a blessing to have all of our staff in place! We have also been talking and visiting with several new families who are considering our school for their children. We continue to clean, organize, and prepare for the coming school year. Thank you to everyone who has helped this past year be such a productive one. Our students were blessed with so many opportunities for learning academically and sharing and growing their faith. Your continued prayers and support help Trinity to be the special place that it is. Wishing everyone a happy, fun-filled and safe summer!

With God's Blessings,

Beth Boester

Did you know?

· Trinity Lutheran School is accredited by both the National Lutheran Schools Association and the Illinois State Board of Education

· The Saxons who immigrated in 1839 to St. Louis established children's schools even before they built a worship sanctuary. It was the practice in the Saxon congregations that the office of the school teacher was inaugurated at the same time as the pastoral office.

· Trinity's preschool enrollment is at full capacity at this time and we are starting a waiting list.

· Every class at Trinity begins and ends their day in prayer.

School Update:

Our Summer Library Program continues. The school library is open Wednesday mornings from 9 - 10 am. There will be a story time for the younger students and time to check out a book to take home. All are welcome! (June 20,27, & July 11, 18, 25)

Our Student Support Ministry continues to offer services to students over the summer. Mrs. Schlueter will be here Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons to work with students on speech and language processing. If interested, please contact the office for more information.

Pam Campbell has offered to run with any students interested in cross country on Tuesday mornings starting at Hoffman Park at 9 am beginning June 26th.

Music for Trinity Hoffman!

You can make a difference! We have been blessed with being able to begin our band program again this past year. We have five students take lessons for most of the year. We hope to increase that number this coming year. Mr. Harding will continue to offer band lessons twice a week to our students. In addition, we are beginning a Junior Choir program once again. You can help support these programs. Please prayerfully consider sponsoring a band student at the rate of $125 per student per semester or the Junior Choir at the rate of $300 per semester. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students at a time when many schools are cutting back on their fine arts programs. Donations will be accepted at any time. Please designate on the memo line that it is for our music program. Thank you for supporting our school!

Upcoming Events:

My name is Cheryl Brinkmann and I coordinate the Carlyle Bookmobile. We have a beautiful trailer, fully stocked with books and other materials - for kids and adults - that we take to communities in the Carlyle School District. We provide this service for areas that are without a library - and its FREE! When we saw that Hoffman was losing it's library, we approached the Village Board and we were approved!

We will be at the Village Park from 11:15-noon on the following dates:

June 11

June 25

July 9

July 23

August 6
