School Notes

  • Mission Statement: Empowered by Christ's love, Trinity students engage in academic rigor to be life-long learners and serve others.
  • Overview: Trinity serves children from preschool through 8th grade. Beyond strong academics and home-school communication, students grow through regular enrichment in art, music, band, Spanish, and gardening. The amazing Lutheran Elementary Schools Tournament each winter goes far beyond sports as middle school students show their God-given talents in writing, spelling, math, science, art, chess, instrumental and choral music, oh, and basketball!
