Good morning TLS families,
Below are some important updates for this weekend. With so many of our students leaving early to support the Lincoln Lutheran Warriors in volleyball (Go Warriors!) we decided to send out some notifications early. If you are attending the game cheer on the Warriors extra loud for us! What an accomplishment!
Eileen's Colossal Cookie Dough:
Don't forget to pick up your cookie dough orders today, 11/10/17. The orders will be ready for pick up in the cafeteria shortly before school lets out. If there are issues with pickup due to the volleyball game, contact the TLS Office and alternative pick up arrangements can be made. Again, Go Warriors!
Trinity Lutheran Spirit Wear:
Trinity Lutheran Spirit Wear has arrived and will be sent home with PIN folders today, 11/10/17. If you want the Spirit Wear to be a surprise or gift, please contact the TLS Office ASAP and we will hold it back for you. If you want it held back, we would ask that you pick it up from the office by Friday, 11/17/17.
Operation Christmas Child:
This year we are participating in Operation Christmas Child and we would like to invite your family to participate in any way that you would like. Today the oldest child in your family will be bringing home an OCC shoe box to fill with items. If you would like to fill your shoe box as a family over the coming week that is wonderful! If you find that you want to fill out additional shoe boxes, you can contact the school or use any that are lying around. (Grandma's are pretty good at having a back up shoe box or two.) Shoe boxes are due back to the school no later than Friday, 11/17/17. TLS will be shipping out all of the boxes at the same time on Monday, 11/20/17. I will have additional information regarding labels out to everyone shortly. Don't print just yet!
If filling a shoe box does not work for your family, but you have some items that you would like to donate we will gladly take them at school. You can drop off the shoe box and those donation items off in the office or at the Operation Christmas Child table out in the hallway outside of the office. Staff will make sure that the donated items make it into boxes to be donated.
If you would like to help but are not able to fill the boxes and are not sure what to get we could always use donations towards the shipping costs. No amount is too small and every donation is greatly appreciated. It is approximately $9.00 to ship a shoe box.
Make sure that you or your child(ren) let teachers or the office know when they return their filled shoe boxes next week. We will keep track of how many each class returns...and if the classroom reaches their goal - the teacher in that room gets to wear an ugly Christmas sweater ALL DAY on Tuesday, 11/28/17. If the whole school reaches their goal, all staff will wear ugly Christmas sweaters, blazers, workwear, etc. Over the weekend ugly sweater trackers will be placed outside of each classroom so your child(ren) can monitor how close they are getting to their classroom goal. A school wide ugly sweater tracker will be by the office so parents can see how close our school is getting.
Finally, thank you all again for everything that you do to support Trinity Lutheran School.
Have a great weekend!
