Greetings From the Principal:

Greetings in the name of Christ,

What an exciting week at school! If you didn’t notice it, we were in the Sentinel on Thursday. Be sure to take a look! Baseball and Softball players finished their regional games. Pee Wee Basketball practices started. Our Yankee Candle Fundraiser was a great success. Pastor Jennings from Ferrin presented our chapel service this week. On Thursday, each of our Prayer Families met together in the gym and prayed using Prayer Dominoes. Our 7th and 8th grade students are designing their own personal service projects. Some of them are choosing to work on the Prayer Garden and School Beautification Project. Mums, daisies, and decorative millet were planted on the South Side of the school. Thank you, Ray and Melodie Ainslie for coordinating this service project. We are all excited about working on our National Lutheran Schools Accreditation committees. If you want to be involved, we can still use some extra volunteers. Our first meeting is Sunday after the congregational picnic. Everyone is invited to attend the picnic! Thank you for supporting our school and its students.

Blessings on your week,

Mrs. Boester

Walking in the Word: On Wednesday mornings, we are walking in the gym during our staff devotion time from 7:30 to 8:00 am. We want to invite congregation members to join us for this time of fellowship. We walk together and listen to music and a devotion during this time. If you want to join us, please sign up by calling the school office or stopping in. See you on Wednesday!

School Chapel Mission: During August and September, we are collecting money for the Centralia Crisis Pregnancy Center which provides support to expecting and new mothers. Students have brought in over $500 already! Baby Bottles are in the Narthex to use for collecting your change. We need to return the bottles at the end of September. Thank you for supporting our mission!

Music for Trinity Hoffman!

You can make a difference! 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!
