Friendly reminder…Dine to Donate-Pilot Pete’s 9/27

Dear Trinity Families & Faculty –

We invite you to join us for food, fun and fellowship at our first Trinity Dine To Donate event of the school year at Pilot Pete’s on Irving Park Road in Schaumburg. This event will be held on THURSDAY, September 27th, from 11am to 10pm. When you dine at Pilot Pete’s for either lunch or dinner, Pilot Pete’s will donate 20% of your pre-tax bill back to Trinity School. Take-out orders can also contribute towards fundraising as long as you mention “Trinity” at the time of ordering. Be sure to present the attached flyer to your server at the time of payment.

What are we working to raise money for? 
This year all Dine to Donate earnings will go towards a Trinity Teachers fund in which the teacher will choose how they want to use their “Teacher Bucks” towards their classroom or classroom activities.


As you know, the school is having a “Family Fun Night” next week Wednesday, September 26th.  We have invited not only our school families, but everyone in the surrounding community!

The evening will end with “cookies and milk”….and we are in need of your baking (or shopping, whichever is your preference) skills to donate cookies for the evening.

Please respond below if you are able to bring a minimum of one dozen cookies.  If you will be bringing something containing peanuts, please be sure to mark the package clearly.

Donations can be dropped off either Tuesday (9/25) or Wednesday (9/26) prior to the start of the event at 6 p.m.

Thank you in advance for your generosity – we hope you will be able to join us!

Trunk or Treat!

Trick or Treat? No Way try TRUNK OR TREAT!

Make sure to mark your calendars for the annual TRUNK OR TREAT event at Trinity.

Trunk or Treat is a fall themed Halloween event for families and children of all ages.  We wanted to provide families a safe and fun environment for their kids to play some games, enjoy some fall crafts, and of course go trick or treating for some candy!


12:30pm-2:00pm in Trinity Parking Lot.

We will have games, food, candy, prizes, and so much more!



This November, if you have a child in 1st – 4th grade, they can be a part of helping to bring the true meaning of Christmas to us all.  The immortal tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and his journey to understand the joy to be found in kindness and loving thy neighbor is the subject of this fall’s play. 

Well, OK, it’s not exactly “A Christmas Carol”, but it is “Scrooged” – an abridged, age-appropriate stage adaptation of the 1988 Bill Murray movie. 

Auditions are Friday, 9/7, 2pm-4pm with rehearsals beginning the following Monday.  There are roles for all levels and any child 1st-4th grade is encouraged to audition.  Everyone who auditions will have a part in the play.

We also ask that you prayerfully consider the volunteer opportunities that are available. Please complete the Volunteer Opportunities Form and return to the school office at your earliest convenience. And remember…..a volunteer doesn’t have to be a parent, it could be a grandparent, aunt, uncle or older sibling and it could be working in either the church or school. No matter who does the volunteering, be sure to sign-in at the front reception desk in the Volunteer logbook so that the hours are counted!
Don’t forget that ordering is now available through WT Cafe’! Have a little extra time to spare from 11:20 – 12? Why not consider being a Hot Lunch Server – it’s easy and you get to spend time with all of our awesome students (and you receive a discount on hot lunches for your family on the days you serve)! Interested? Just contact the school office .
