Middle School

Arts at Trinity Lutheran
Lutherans have a rich heritage which focuses on the arts. The fine arts program at Trinity provides a safe, nurturing environment for young, Christian artists to develop their skills and enhance their love of the performing, visual, and digital arts.   Trinity has a team of teachers, experienced in the classroom and in the field of their profession, who are committed to excellence.  Whether they want to learn a new instrument, sing in one of the vocal ensembles, or produce something in our digital media lab, there is something for every student who walks through Trinity’s doors.

Middle School
The Middle School Fine Arts program emphasizes the idea of working hard as a team and competing in a Christ-like manner. With performances throughout the year and competitions like LEST (Lutheran Elementary Schools Tournament), our middle school students are able to put these ideas in action.  All middle school students take a music class each year with a different focus, (6th Grade – World Music, 7th Grade – European Music, 8th Grade – History of Rock and Roll). In addition, students are given the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of classes and performance ensembles.  Between the music ensembles, drama opportunities, digital arts and other classes, there is something for every student that walks through Trinity’s doors. In all the arts, Trinity’s program strives to be pleasing to God and teaches our students to share the gifts He has given to the school, church, and to the community of Bend.
