 Please note that there will not be a hot lunch this week Wednesday. However, there will be a school-wide Pizza Ranch meal on Thursday when Covenant Christian’s band is here. Each student should bring $5 for the Thursday meal. 

Seniors are reminded to bring two wallet-sized photos to the office.

Students are filling out their plans for next year’s classes. These sheets should be signed by parents and returned to school by Monday, April 20. 

The Bezaleel Club and Robotics plan to sponsor the first ever Trinity tractor ride! Polish up your favorite tractor and be ready to join us. Watch for details.

Congratulations to our programming students who captured first place at the USD competition. Another job well done. Mr. Westra and his class have ably demonstrated their willingness to work hard. They do not seem easily daunted competing against much larger schools.

Juniors and seniors who plan to have an outside date at the Jr/Sr Banquet are reminded that they must bring in a completed parental permission form no later than Friday, April 14. Dates must be at least a junior in high school, be no older than 21, and must abide by the same standards of dress and conduct as the Trinity students. 

Athletic physicals will be offered again at Trinity for all students anticipating participating in a sport for the 2015-16 school year. The date of these physicals will be Wednesday, April 22 at school in the morning. Students must pick up a physical form in the office and fill out the appropriate sections and have a parent sign the form prior to the physical. Cost of the physical is $30. Both the form and the $30 must be taken with the student to the physical. It is a state requirement that anyone participating in a sport must have a physical.

General Announcements:

Trinity Christian’s and Covenant Christian’s bands will be presenting a program on Thursday, April 16, at 7:00 p.m. in Trinity’s gymnasium. Both bands will play their own numbers, and the evening will end with both bands joining together for a few numbers. Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; praise Him with the psaltery and harp.

Thank you to those who have responded to the busing letter. Remember, if you do not anticipate needing busing, there is no need to reply. However, if you do anticipate needing busing, please let us know at the school office. Phone calls, texts, emails, and personal visits are all acceptable methods.

Trinity Christian is still in desperate need of a girls’ junior varsity softball coach for this spring. Candidates must have or be willing to get their Iowa coaching endorsement. Anyone interested should contact Mr. Van Engen at or 712-449-8008 as soon as possible.

What is the class “History and Principles of Reformed Education” all about? This class is sponsored by the Federation of Protestant Reformed schools and is taught by Professor Dykstra. It covers many topics, among the chief of them being the development of the reformed worldview. This gets at the heart of why we have Protestant Reformed schools and teachers. Consider taking the course. Encourage others around you to take it. Evenings, May 26 – June 5, at Trinity Christian High School. Contact Mr. Regnerus with questions.
