!! Attention Readers!!

Trinity Lutheran School would like to announce a NEW opportunity for all students in 3-6 grade. Maybe you have heard of the William Allen White Children’s Book Award? The awards is given each year to two deserving authors voted on by the children of Kansas. This year will be the 65th year of this award. It is presented to the winning authors at a celebration the first Saturday of October. Each year, students in 3-8 grade read books chosen for the master list - one list for 3-5 graders, and a list for 6-8 graders. Students can then cast their vote for their favorite author in the spring, and the winner from each list in announced in May. The following October the students can then attend the celebration at Emporia State University to meet the authors, have a book signed, and take part in many fun activities in the campus. We would like for our Trinity students to become a part of this celebration beginning NOW! Interested students will be meeting during lunch time today for information, and can sign up with Mrs. Waldorf, Mrs. Popplewell, or Mrs. Bredehoft. We will provide each one with the list of books, and inform you of the winner once announced. There are some guidelines in order to earn the “trip” to the celebration.

● 3rd and 4th graders must read ALL 10 books on their list (3-5 grade list).
● 5th graders must read 10 books total from either list, but must include the winning author’s book.

● Students must take an Accelerated Reader quiz on each book read, passing with an 80% or better. Computers will be available this summer at Trinity - days and times to be determined soon.

● All tests must be taken by September 22nd.

● Students must be in good standing with their classroom teacher as far as grades and behavior in order to attend the celebration on Saturday, October 7th. More details about the event will be shared after the school year begins.

** Next year’s 3rd grade students will be introduced to the 2017-18 list after school begins, and can begin earning the trip for the following year.

Preschool Chatter

“Have a Great Summer!/Summer Vacation” is the theme of our last two days of school.  We’ll learn about ways to keep safe this summer.

Monday the 4 year old class trades places with the kindergarten class for half an hour to get some insight into what kindergarten is like.  Preschool diplomas are also being handed out at the end of the morning.  Parents and Book Buddies can witness this event at 10:45 in the preschool room. Going home this last day of school are progress reports and school supplies.

We’ve been growing bean plants in the classroom and these have gone home.

You’ve probably heard that I’m retiring from teaching.  It’s hard to believe that I’ve been here at Trinity for 30 years in the preschool room!  What a joy it’s been to help guide many children in their love for Jesus and in learning so many other things.  It’s been a wonderful experience that I have felt privileged to be a part of.  The other teachers and staff have all been great to work with over the years.  Thank you, Cynthia Thurber, for being my aide these last few years.  I still plan to be around Trinity helping in different ways.  So, I’ll see you around!

Kindergarten Kids

We have a short but busy week. Tuesday we will begin our day with the all-school auction where the boys and girls can “buy” items with the classroom money they have earned.  After lunch we will be walking to the Southwestern College indoor pool for an afternoon of swimming. Your child will need to bring a swimsuit and towel in a bag that can also transport their wet things back home at the end of the day. Good walking shoes will be a must also!

Tuesday will end our time together in kindergarten. It has been my pleasure to get to know each of your children. I consider it an honor to have had the opportunity to teach and guide them throughout the year. My prayer for them is continued success as they move on to first grade and beyond. I look forward to watching them grow in academics and their faith as they move to the next level of their education. I thank you for allowing me this time with your precious children.

Have a wonderful summer. Hope to see you all next year!

Grades 1 & 2

On Monday, we will be walking to the Rec Center for activities. On Tuesday, we are going to Southwestern Pool. Please bring your swimming gear and towel. It is important that you wear tennis shoes. We will be walking to the pool.

Well, this is it! Here we are at the last day of school. Over the summer vacation, I strongly encourage you to read every day and practice math facts. Doing these activities each day over the summer vacation will help to keep your child’s skills sharp. The Winfield Library will have its Summer Reading Program and activities planned throughout the summer. It’s a great way to keep your child reading. Summer vacation is too long of a time to go without any study time!

Thank you for being such good parents to your children! It has been a pleasure working with you and I have enjoyed teaching each and every one of your children! May God bless and watch over you and your children this summer and always.
