From The Executive Director & Head of Schools- 1/10/20

Hello Trinity family,

Happy New Year! Happy New Decade! It has been great to reconnect with our students and their families this past week.
So many exciting things will be happening over the next few months of school. Weekly basketball games, a National Lutheran Schools Week celebration, and our Annual Auction are just a few of the ways that this community gathers on a regular basis.

Priority re-enrollment for next year will be held from February 19-25. During that time, our current students have priority for attendance for the 2020-2021 school year. On February 26 we will start open enrollment to fill any open places that remain. More details will follow.
Our office has had many tours scheduled for prospective students these past few weeks with more coming. During the tour, I tend to ask each visitor, why this school, why Trinity?

The answers vary from the school being faith-based, a wonderful academic experience, or a great program like the arts or athletics or solar car. Invariably though I also hear people say, “A friend of mine has children attending Trinity, and they love it.”

Trinity Fund Update:

The Trinity Fund, our annual fund drive, had a great start in 2019. So far through December 31, 2019, we had 48 gifts and received $40,230.50.
Our goal for this school year is participation, not an amount. We received one time gifts, recurring gifts, gifts matched by employers, gifts of stock, gifts from family trusts, gifts from individuals, and gifts from companies. You can still make a gift to help support the student experience here at Trinity. Please follow this link to make a gift:

If you prefer to make a gift by check, please send your gift to:
Trinity Lutheran School,
2550 NE Butler Market Rd, Bend, OR 97701

Our amazing families are our best representatives to the community about the blessings of attending Trinity. If people approach you about how to connect with us, invite them to call our office and make an appointment for a tour and a conversation. For students in grades 1 – 12, they may even want to shadow for a portion of the day to get a feel of what that classroom is like. Thank you for your support.

be God’s,
