What is Autism?   Autism is a complex, developmental disability that causes problems with social skills and communication. Autism can be mild or severe. It is different for every person.  

Some Quick Facts About Autism:

  • Studies indicate that 1 in 68 children will be diagnosed with Autism.
  • Boys are 5 times more likely to be diagnosed than girls.
  • There is no known, single cause of Autism.
  • Autism impacts each person differently. Some people with Autism are nonverbal, while others are highly gifted in areas.
  • There is no cure for Autism.  

The Symbol for Autism Awareness is the Puzzle Piece:  The puzzle piece represents the mystery and complexity of Autism.  The different colors (red, yellow, and blue) represent the diversity of the families and people living with Autism.

Communication Tips:  When interacting with someone with Autism remember… 

  • Just because they are not looking at you doesn’t mean they are not listening.
  • Talk as equals, do not talk down to them.
  • If you think a communication error has happened, clarify it, ask questions.
  • Be patient. 

Autism in Entertainment:  There are many characters on popular shows today that demonstrate   Autism traits and tendencies. Some examples are:

  • Sheldon from ‘The Big Bang Theory’
  • Brick from ‘The Middle’
  • Julia from Sesame Street 

Famous people with Autism:

  • James Durbin: American Idol contestant.
  • Dan Akroyd: Actor, best known for his role in Blues Brothers.
  • Tim Burton: Director of films like: Batman Begins.

Dear Trinity parents and students,

We would like to take this opportunity to give you some updates about  the annual Fine Arts Festival on Friday, April 13th, 2018

There is no school for Pre-School through 4th grade on the day of the Festival, but Middle School students have a day filled with many musical opportunities as students from 10+ schools gather for this eventThe time commitment for Middle School students is from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. There are four commitments throughout the day that all middle school students need to participate in (two mass rehearsals, the judging of their school group, the final concert, and their assigned clean up jobs at the end).  Each one of these contributes to their grade for the day.

For students who choose to participate in additional events (i.e. piano, art, vocal/instrumental solos/ensembles) there will be a $3.00 fee per event.  This fee needs to be included with their judging form(s).  Please make checks payable to Trinity Lutheran and return all registration forms and payments to Andrew Schempf. This is due NO LATER than Wednesday, March 14th.

Please see the attached information for additional details on the schedule for the day, as well as information on judging and guidelines.

Please also keep in mind that we will be in need of parent volunteers to assist with a variety of opportunities.  If you are available and would like to assist, please contact the school office or Mr. Schempf.

As always, we thank you for your assistance and support!
