As I looked for something to share with you this week I found one message that stuck with me.
Your life is your message to the world. Make sure it’s inspiring!!
I saw a paper that hung in someone’s office this week that made me think. It was the acronym THINK.
T – is it truthful
H – is it helpful
I – is it inspiring
N – is it necessary
K – is it kind
Lots of items to look at this week. Be sure to click on the links for more information.
Growing alongside you,
2017-18 SCHOOL REGISTRATION
Family enrollment forms were sent home with students for the 2017-18 school year last week (and this week for preschool). If you have not received yours, please be sure to check your student’s backpack or contact the school office .
Registration fees can be paid online at the following links. Please note that a signed copy of your Family Registration Form MUST be turned into the school office.
Early enrollment responses are critical to our planning for the next school year. Knowing as soon as possible how many students will be attending helps us to plan staffing (and offer teacher contracts as early as possible), curriculum, electives, etc.

INVITE A FRIEND!
Beginning this week on February 8th, every Wednesday and Thursday morning between 9 – 11 a.m. during the months of February and March, Trinity Lutheran School will be opening the doors for tours of our facility to new families interested in sending their children. We are currently looking for advocates that would like to serve as “tour guides”. This position would include meeting new people, telling your Trinity stories, answering questions and walking families around the school showing our classrooms in progress.
To volunteer, you need not be a parent of a current student – just someone who loves Trinity! If you, or someone you know, would be interested in filling this role, please contact the school office
or Mrs. Koenig
as soon as possible.
Why not invite a friend? Flyers are available at the front desk or through the school office.

SHARE YOUR PRAYERS –
A Weekly Prayer Guide
Father in heaven, bless by congregation as you daily remind each of us that we are your children made in your image, save by grace alone through faith in Christ Jesus. Thank you that though we are all different, we are the same in your sight. Lord, sometimes it feels scary to be with people who do not share my culture and heritage. Calm my fears and teach me to celebrate our congregational diversity. Help me embrace, to learn about and to understand each person in my church family, so that I can see beyond the differences to the similarities. You have given each of us special gifts with which to serve you. Bring us together in unity to bring honor and glory to your name by living, sharing and teaching your love in our homes, workplaces, communities and the world. In Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.
This week we prayer for our 2nd grade students, families, and teachers. Please let us know
if there is something specific we can pray for.
If you would like a member of our Pastoral Care team to call on you, please call our church office and we will be happy to put you in touch with someone. Be assured, all correspondence and communications are, and will continue to be, kept in the strictest of confidence.
