The students of Trinity Lutheran School challenge you to donate as we “Manifest the Spirit!”

  1. Help us follow the advice of Dr. Seuss, so all “can find the magic wherever you look, sit back, relax, all you need is a book!” Trinity’s Magic of Reading literacy initiative across the campus will place new leveled books into CDC and K-8 Classrooms and the Library.
  2. Plate our nutritious meals in the Fellowship Hall Cafeteria with an ambiance conducive to meals served family-style, peppered with quiet conversation, all in an atmosphere of etiquette and courtesy.

The Magic of Reading

The magic of reading permeates the development of every child in the CDC and K-8 classrooms. Reading fosters and extends creativity, imagination, an awareness of a world beyond one’s own, social connections, and mature behavior. Books are the infrastructure to engineer and optimize literacy in Trinity’s enterprise of development for all children at Trinity Lutheran School.

Magic of Reading Funding

We aim to raise $20,000 to invigorate and add new books and build a larger base of reading resources for all students at Trinity, whether in our library or classrooms. “It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations-something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own,” notes Katherine Patterson, the celebrated author of Bridge to Terabithia, The Great Gilly Hopkins, Park’s Quest, and 30 more fascinating books that do indeed stretch the imagination. Your gift will help to purchase rewarding resources across the spectrum of the whimsical to the worthwhile in:

• Picture Books and Early Readers
• Chapter Books, Classic, and Contemporary Novels
• Books and Picture Books about Faith and the Christian Life
• Non-Fiction resources for STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics

Project Genesis

Continuing with Project Genesis, our second initiative, launched through a partnership with the Nemours Hospital Healthy Foods Cooperative. With onsite preparation and food service, Trinity optimally leverages early learning to introduce healthy, natural, nutritious alternatives to processed and packaged foods for toddlers to teens. We are seeking to promote the appeal of healthy foods as tasteful with a facility to parallel the quality of our aims. We believe that a contemporary, modernized facility will become a Genesis to the joy of eating well, all life long, beginning at Trinity Lutheran School. We aim to plate nutritious meals in a refreshingly plated cafeteria!

Project Genesis Funding

We aim to raise $30,000 for:
• Walk-In Food Storage Cooler
• Nutrition Education
• Acoustic Ceiling, Lighting, Laminate Flooring, New Doors, Awnings and Partitions
