Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year
Dear TLS Family,
Welcome to membership in the 2017-18 Trinity Parent Teacher League (“PTL”). For those of you unfamiliar with this organization, the PTL is comprised of Trinity Lutheran School parents and staff who have dedicated their time and talents to supporting the educational experience at Trinity. The friendly school environment at Trinity provides faculty, staff, students, and parents the opportunity to develop close relationships as we work together to promote the growth and development of our children. The PTL hopes to help coordinate this collaboration, so that the energies of our membership are put to the highest and best use.
You send your child to Trinity because you believe in its mission and understand the value of a Christ-centered education. I now invite you to take a more active role in helping Trinity to achieve that mission. Please attend PTL meetings and volunteer at PTL events so that our students and the larger community may continue to experience our wonderful ministry.
The PTL is the organization primarily responsibility for major fundraising events such as Touch-A-Truck, Silent Auction, Pumpkin Patch and Book Fairs. This new opportunity is exciting and will require lots of volunteers to be successful. In addition to fundraising efforts, PTL also sponsors several family events that help to foster community at Trinity. These include Grandparent’s Day, Family Fun Nights, the Read-In, and Staff/Volunteer appreciation events. We are looking forward to all of our events this year and parents should know that P.R.I.C.E. hours may be earned by volunteering for any PTL efforts.
The PTL Executive Board meets monthly. The dates and times for these meetings are available on the school calendar, and you may contact me at PTL@TrinityDowntown.com for the meeting location or to discuss any PTL business. All meetings are open to parents, teachers, staff, and church members, so please feel free to attend.
