Our Trinity Tiger FUN RUN Walk-A-Thon is TOMORROW! That means that today is the LAST DAY BEFORE THE BIG EVENT FOR PLEDGES. Parents – please be sure to log your pledges on www.funrun.com . If you have collected pledges by using your crown, please be sure to turn them in to the school office as soon as possible so that your student receives credit!
If you don’t have a student that attends our school but you would like to make a flat donation toward this event, please click here to use our City Giving page and choose “walkathon” in the drop down menu. Or click here for the general pledge page for Trinity Lutheran Tiger Fun Run.
We are looking forward to great weather, tons of fun and fellowship….and, of course, seeing the sparkle in the eyes of those students who met the challenge of raising a minimum of $150 in pledges pick the teacher they want to throw a pie at!
It’s SO hard to believe we are already counting down to graduation and the last day of school for the 2017-18 School Year!
This week is the last chance for students and families to check for items that may have been lost or misplaced over the last few months. Items are set out on a table just outside the school office. Please have your students check for any items that they may have been looking for before next week Friday, June 1st. Any items left after this time will be donated.
In case you missed it in the Tidbits yesterday….
Parents! This year’s Walk-A-Thon fundraiser is the Fun Run Walk-A-Thon! We kicked off the event last week with a Pep Rally, have asked families to register their students online at Funrun.com to collect pledges (or students can use the crown they were given and turn the pledges into the school office to receive credit) and have been handing out daily prizes. Along with the prizes for pledges received, our students have also been issued challenges to earn extra recess time, non-uniform days, and for every student that receives $150 in pledges, they will have an opportunity to throw a pie at the teacher of their choice! Our target goal is to raise $30,000 that will go toward the beginning phases of playground improvements, as well as portions to our Grant-In-Aid program and technology.
Students also have been experiencing an amazing character theme, CASTLE QUEST! An English castle theme all about being brave and living with character. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, students will learn the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters.
There is only a few more days to raise funds – please help our school by reaching out to sponsors and share your students pledge page via social media. Also, be sure to ask your employer about any “matching funds” programs they may have!
If you would like to make a flat donation for our school, please click here
, or consider using the “Giving” section on “The City” (select “”uc”>walkathon” from the drop-down menu).
All families are invited to come out and cheer on your student at the Fun Run! Our Preschool classes will begin their “Fun Run” at 9:30 a.m. and our K – 8th grade will participate at 1:30 p.m. A hot lunch will be provided by our PTL for all students. Lunch will consist of:
Kirkland Brand All Beef Hot Dogs
8oz. Water Bottle
Ketchup and Mustard
Each child in full day preschool, 1st – 3rd grade, and NDSEC will receive 1 hot dog. Grades 4-8th will receive 2 hot dogs per child. Lunch will be served at the regular lunch times 11:30 am and 12:00 pm. If your child is unable to eat the hot dog lunch, please supply them with a lunch from home. If your child that needs a hot dog without a bun, please let the office know prior to Friday so we can wrap those hot dogs separately.
Since this is a Friday which is a Black/White/Orange Spirit Wear day (NO FLAIR), Students will also be allowed to wear jeans (no ripped or torn), shorts (appropriate length), and athletic pants. Leggings will NOT be allowed.
Volunteers are still needed the day of the event to assist with passing out water to our runners, as well as assisting with lunch. If you are available to help, please contact the school office as soon as possible.

A MESSAGE FROM THE REC:
All school library books were to be turned in TODAY. 47 books are still outstanding.
Any books that were due today will not have a fine if returned on Monday – so put those books in your backpacks as soon as you get home so you remember to bring them in on Monday. Books that were already overdue, have fines that increase daily. Also, 14 children have fines that have NOT been paid and need to get turned in immediately.
Thank you all for your continued cooperation – we are looking forward to another great year in August!
DAILY CHALLENGE FOR THURSDAY, 5/17/18
We did not meet the challenge given yesterday and we missed the opportunity to have Mrs. Swank dress like a minion – we are all very bummed.
HOWEVER, a new challenge has been extended! If every student in your homeroom class registers their accounts to collect pledges online BY 10 A.M. TOMORROW MORNING, that classroom will enjoy an extra 10 minute recess with Mrs. Koenig tomorrow afternoon!!
To register your student accounts, please visit funrun.com and follow the prompts.
DID YOU KNOW?
Some employers have a corporate matching program? Be sure to ask yours about matching your donation – to add their pledge to your student account, simply add the pledge in the same amount they are matching and in the pull down menu, select “corporate match”. It’s that simple!
