Trinity Memo 8.26.19


The 2018-2019 Yearbooks are in! Pick up your copy in the office for $25.

A new water bottle filler has been installed in the hallway fountain. It works really well!

Students are settling in to their schedules. Requests for class changes should be made at the office.

The annual freshman/sophomore mixer will be next week Friday, September 6. More details will follow in an email to the parents and students this week.
We are looking for a few senior students to serve on the chapel committee. See Mr. Regnerus if you are interested.

We have begun our 12th year of secondary covenantal education. There are a few staffing changes of which we take note. First, we welcome Mrs. Katrina Burgers to our teaching staff. Secondly, Mrs. Kuiper is taking over the athletic director responsibilities. Finally, Mrs. Bloemendaal is stepping into the role of guidance counselor. We pray for God’s blessing on the new year.

Progress has resumed on securing the entry. If you find yourself locked out of the main entry, look at the metal box on the north wall. Press the green button and someone will let you in.

A most sincere thank you to everyone who volunteered to help with the library this summer! We have almost filled our current bookcases, and we could not have done it without all of your assistance. Thank you!

Did you know that Trinity is in the minority, albeit a good one? Forty-one percent of Iowa’s high schools received a letter congratulating them on having zero ejections of players, coaches, or fans from sporting events in 2018-2019. We received such a letter this year again. By God’s grace, let’s continue to conduct ourselves in a way consistent with the name Trinity Christian.

From the Athletic Director:
• Volleyball season is in full swing. We are looking for volunteers to help at our home games this season. We need gate takers, line judges, scoreboard runners, book keepers, and libero trackers. If any of these things interests or intrigues you, let the Athletic Director, Laura Kuiper, know. Our first home game is Sept 10, but also need help this week Friday for the alumni game. Even if you can only help one game, let Mrs. Kuiper know. We love MANY volunteers! You can email her at, or text at 712-451-9329. Thank you in advance for your willingness to help Attention volleyball enthusiasts!

• The evening of August 30 will be the 2nd annual alumni match! Come on out and enjoy some back-and-forth over the net. The schedule looks like this:
• 5:30 pm. Concessions open. Full meals available.
• 6:30 pm. Our volleyball teams will take on all lady alumni who are up for the         challenge.       • Following that will be an alumni game for the guys.
It promises to be a fun evening for all. Hope to see you then!
