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:

As July comes to a close and August looms just ahead of us, we sense the “busyness” that is just around the corner. With this, comes excitement of new beginnings. Many children will go to school for the first time, whether it is preschool or kindergarten. Some are just beginning high school or going off to college. Others are returning to a familiar school setting. This means a bit of anxiety for the students as well as the parents. Even in the familiar setting, many things will be unfamiliar. Through all of this, new beginnings and unfamiliar settings, remember that our Father in heaven is with us, to guide and comfort us. Our theme verse for this school year gives us comfort: Hebrews 13:8, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. He is our constant in a world of inevitable change.

May God continue to bless you richly,

Beth Boester

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. 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!
