Today we have a lot going on at Trinity Lutheran School.  Chapel service begins the season of Lent with Ash Wednesday.  We celebrate love for one another and especially God's love for each of us. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16Happy Valentines Day, 100th Day of school, and both a student and staff member's birthdays today. (2/14/2024)

Today is “Prince & Princess”, “dress to impress”, “putting on the ritz”, or “dress to the nines” day.  However you look at it, each class chose a best dressed to represent their class.

Reflecting on the scriptures and the teaching of the Lutheran church, we are all Winners, as baptized believers in Jesus Christ.  Through His atoning sacrifice and salvation offered to all of us, we are all Royalty - being adopted sons and daughters of the One True King!

I found this on wikipedia.org:
Martin Luther …(wrote about)...a general priesthood in Christendom in his 1520 To the Christian Nobility of the German Nation:

“In fact, we are all consecrated priests through Baptism, as St. Peter in 1 Peter 2:9 says, "You are a royal priesthood and a priestly kingdom," and Revelation 5:10, "Through your blood you have made us into priests and kings."

 Luther would write in his On the Babylonian Captivity of the Church (1520):
 “...for thus it says in 1 Peter 2, "You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a priestly kingdom." In this way we are all priests, as many of us as are Christians.“

Claim your Royal family!
If you have any questions or desire to be baptized and have not yet done so, please speak with Pastor Phifer or any one of us at school.  Our Lord desires all people to be in His Royal family!

Trinity Lutheran students, parents, and staff participated in the Paw Paw Holiday parade Saturday (December 2, 2023), handing out information on our school and invitations to Advent worship services and events.

Middle school students are preparing for a few science competitions including the regional Science Olympiad Tournament next spring.  A student is experimenting with how the tension on a string will change the pitch of a sound in this homemade device.

Middle school students at Trinity Lutheran are studying biological systems of the body this year in science class.  They are creating a model of the intestine and studying how glucose (food) can transfer through it.

Students are learning about Native American history by recreating a Potawatome scene and making model birch bark houses. 

Two of TLS's middle school students are playing football with Lawrence Public Schools thanks to a cooperative athletic agreement. Congratulations boys. Wishing you a great season!

Trinity Middle School attends Growler's Education day along with many other schools across Southwest Michigan.

In the STEM displays before the game, students were able to test out buoyancy, quiz each other on Astronomy, try out a Styker medical bone saw, ride on an ambulance stretcher, meet with the Carpenters Union and use a power screw gun and practice on a MIG welding simulation machine. KVCC was there letting students build model wooden structures and try them in the Earthquake machine. In the parking lot Firefighters worked with students to run a hose while a tree trimming service let students repel in their harness. There were a lot of great opportunities for students to try things in the exhibits.

During the game 3 of our Trinity students retrieved foul balls.  Sydney had one bounce right to her seat in the 2nd Inning, while Tristan and Levi ran to get them in the 8th and 9th Innings.  Students also met with players and got autographs during and after the game.

In addition, we met up with some friends who transferred to our sister Lutheran school.
