PTFA

The Parent, Teacher’s, Friends Association is a group of dedicated volunteers who help enrich the school through events and fundraising for the spiritual, moral and educational well being of the children in attendance at the school.

The board consists of a president, vice president, treasurer and secretary. There are also middle school representatives, and chairs for each of the events hosted on part of the PTFA.

Dues are paid each year in your registration fee. This helps offset the costs of school trips.

We actively encourage our parents/families to get involved. Many hands make light work. There is no amount of time that is too small and everyone has gifts they can share within our community.

The PTFA at Trinity Lutheran School has several upcoming events. Please save the dates and we hope you plan on coming out and having fun. Details will be sent home closer to the event. If you’d like to volunteer your time to help at any of the events, please contact PTFAPresident@trinityli.org.
