T.L.A. 7TH ANNUAL WALK-A-THON
Our school has scheduled its annual Walk-a-thon for tomorrow Friday, February 16, 2018, from 9 am - 12 noon. We feel this will be a fun activity for all our students, and a great way to encourage each child to exercise while helping our school. A pledge form was enclosed in the packet for our students to bring to friends and family. It is our hope that all students will participate in this activity. Our goal is to raise $2,500.00, which will go towards our school’s daily operational costs for the summer months.
Gerlinde Photography will be taking group pictures on Tuesday, February 20, 2018, at 9:00 am in the church sanctuary. Parent’s please make sure that all students are present and on time. The pictures are $15.00 each. Order forms are attached to this newsletter.
T.L.A. SCIENCE FAIR
Each year Trinity has a Science Fair in the spring, and this year is no exception. Our Science Fair is scheduled for April 19, 2018. Science Fair packets were sent home last week. The science fair packet includes all the information your child will need to present a successful Science Fair Project, including a timeline for each step of this process.
Please remember that this project must be approved by your child’s teacher. Assignment 1 is due tomorrow Friday, February. 9. Listed below are some websites that may be used for ideas, our office has a few books that give suggestions for good science project ideas.
Every child in grades Kindergarten through second grades will do a project with their class and are not required to turn in an individual one. We encourage each child in K- 2 grades to do an individual project just for fun. Most families work together on some topic the child is interested in. These projects will be displayed during our Science Fair, but are not eligible for trophies.
All students in grades third through eighth are required to turn in their own project for our Science Fair. These will be judged by members of our community and given a science grade for their effort. All projects are judged by grade levels, 3-5 are given one set of criteria, and 6 – 8 another. We have first, second and third place ribbons as well as a top project, runner-up, and most artistic trophy for each level.
Suggested websites for Science Fair Ideas are as follows:
Once in a while, maybe next month or next year or decade nostalgia hit us. We dust off our collected books of photos, scrapbooks, old letters and cards to sit down and spend hours remembering our favorite memories. They are available anytime because they have been saved!
Memories are being made right now! Order your child’s yearbook today so that you and your family can preserve and share these memories together for a lifetime! Yearbooks are being sold at Trinity Lutheran Academy now! You can purchase your yearbook for $25.00 if you place your order by April 27, 2018. All books are hardcover and full colored books.
