Lost and Found Parade
Your stuff misses YOU too!
TODAY is the last day!

We invited students as well as parents to come see if any of your lost belongings can be found!

Whatever is left will be donated over Christmas Break.
Teacher Appreciation Gift
This Christmas, bless the people who bless your children daily!
Dear Trinity Families,

Once again we are approaching that time of year when we reflect upon the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  As we think about the wonderful gift that He has given us, we also wish to remember with thankful hearts those who give daily to our children.

At Trinity, we have a tradition of inviting you to bless our dedicated staff with a financial "Teacher Appreciation Gift."  These monetary gifts will be anonymously given and divided among our faculty.  They will be presented to the staff during Christmas Break. This is a generous and heartfelt way to give back to our committed teachers who put in tireless, unseen hours for our children.  So, please join us in honoring our teachers and staff during this special time of the year.

Thank you for considering a contribution to this year's Teacher Appreciation Gift and blessing our staff in a very m eaningful way.
 
May God Richly Bless You!

"Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift"

In order for funds to be available for distribution during Christmas Break 
all gifts must be received by December 26th. 

For your convenience, you may donate online by credit card or in the office by cash, check, or credit card-- but please be sure to designate as "Teacher Appreciation Gift".

Your gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Praising Father...

... for the giving hearts of our Trinity Family! On Giving Tuesday (the Tuesday after Thanksgiving) over $750,000 was raised for kids attending private schools in Arizona through Arizona Tuition Connection and our school contributed $6,900 to that total-- which will be donated back to students at our school!  What a wonderful gift and incredible blessing!
"Fret not yourselves because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers! For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb.  Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.  Delight yourself in the Lord; and he will give you the desires of your heart.  Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act."  Psalm 37:1-5 (ESV)
