You are welcome to come and meet with your child’s teacher to see how things are going so far and what they have been doing in class. Feel free to take a look around your child’s classroom - wander into some of the other classrooms and make yourself more familiar with the entire Trinity staff. The evening will be informal; the teachers will be in the building until 8:30 for you convenience. This is not a time for individual conferences. This night is for parents only.
SANTA PICTURES: Pictures with Santa will be taken on Monday, Nov. 19th. A form with information will be sent home. PAYMENT MUST BE INCLUDED with your picture order. The photographer will also take pictures of additional children in your family if you wish; however, no family pictures will be taken during class picture time. The time for these family-type pictures is from 10:30 to 11:00 AM or from 1:45 to 2:15 PM only. The photographer will photograph brothers and sisters (in the school) together, but you need to tell us before the pictures are taken. This also will be the make-up day for school pictures for those who were absent. Make-ups or re-takes will be taken first - before the Santa pictures are started, so these parents must be prompt – 9:00 AM and 12:30 PM. As usual, we have been guaranteed that the pictures will be completed in plenty of time of the holidays. PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO MARK WITH OR WITHOUT SANTA!!
