TINY TIDBITS – SUMMER EDITION

We hope you are all enjoying a fantastic summer!  Below is some important information we want to be sure you are aware of!

  •  2ND PRESCHOOL FULL DAY CLASS JUST OPENED! We will be splitting the classes by age and will now have a Preschool 3 Year Old Full Day Class and a Preschool 4 Year Old Full Day Class.
  • ONLY 5 SPOTS OPEN IN OUR PRESCHOOL 4 YEAR OLD HALF DAY CLASSThis class is filling up fast – if you or someone you know plan to register for this class for the upcoming fall semester, we recommend you do so quickly!
  • ANDREW SCHEMPF ACCEPTS CALL TO IMMANUEL, ST. CHARLES, MO! Join us on Sunday, July 22nd after every service for a FAREWELL RECEPTION in the Resurrection Chapel.
  • NEW STAFF OPENINGS AVAILABLE! With the addition of our new PSFD 3 class and the upcoming departure of our dear friend and family member, Andrew Schempf, we are currently accepting resumes and beginning to interview for a Full Day Preschool teacher, as well as the Church and School Music Director position.  As we move forward in our mission to find a replacement for Mr. Schempf (not possible!), and with the fast approach of the 2018-19 school year, it is possible that the school will be hiring a part-time music teacher to ensure no disruption to our school class schedules.   If you, or someone you know, are interested in any of these positions, please contact Mrs. Koenig directly and send resumes with cover letter to dawn.koenig@trinityroselle.com.
  • SMART TUITION REMINDER – as stated in the email sent to all parents yesterday, tuition payments for the 2018-19 school year began this month.  BE SURE TO REVIEW YOUR SMART TUITION ACCOUNT FOR ACCURACY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! Ensuring your plan is set-up as you requested at the time you registered (one payment or 12 month installment) will help to avoid surprises such as auto debit taking larger payments than you anticipated, or a $40 late fee because you did not pay the full monthly amount due.  
  • SUMMER VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS OR ADULTS
  • We are looking for anyone willing to come in and help us move new curriculum books into the classrooms.  Interested?  Please contact Mrs. Koenig at dawn.koenig@trinityroselle.com.

SCHOOL TOOL BOX SUPPLIES – ORDERS DUE 7/1

If you have not yet had an opportunity to order your School Tool Box Supply Kit online at www.schooltoolbox.com, you only have 2 more days!  In order to receive the order at school lon August 20th, we ask that you order online by SUNDAY, JULY 1ST.

IF you miss the School Sale ending July 1, the website will not turn down your order, rather it will inform you that you can still order and your box will ship to your home within 10 days. Please note that with shipping to home the cost is slightly higher, but certainly reasonable.  The only other difference is you will receive a “brown shipping box” versus the suitcase look that comes to the school and  is delivered in August. 

Youth Mission Trip to Costa Rica was a dream!

Thanks to all for your big prayers and support for Trinity Youth to head on a very special international trip to Nosara, Costa Rica! 

DCE Erica and DCE Mark took 10 students to build a home from the ground up for a Pastor and his wife who did ministry in the area.  Louis and Viki lived in a small shack with a tarp for a roof.  Now they have a home that will be able to allow them to do huge ministry for the Lord.  Praise God!!

We also went through the entire book of Romans during our devotion time at night and were able to spend some time on the ocean and enjoy some Costa Rican cuisine.

The students were able to see God in action through others, to get outside their comfort zone and to work hard to achieve quite a feat!

What an incredible week!!!
