Early Learning Program - News for 2018/19

Introducing the Early Learning Program!

We are excited to announce that our Trinity Lutheran School Preschool and Prekindergarten classrooms will now be encompassed under the distinct name of Early Learning Program.

Our Preschool 3-year-olds will be busy bees with Mrs. Tengbergen in the Beehive (known as the Preschool House).

Dr. Carson's Prekindergarten Class will be in the Honu Room. Honu refers to the majestic Hawaiian green sea turtle - a gentle, graceful, skilled, and treasured creature of the islands.

Mrs. Philostin's Prekindergarten Class will be in the Nai’a Room. Nai’a refers to the playful Hawaiian spinner dolphin - an active, loyal, and intelligent creature that’s fun to spot off our coasts. The Nai’a Room has switched rooms with what has been our Kindergarten Classroom (the room off of the school office hallway, adjacent to the Library), while the Honu Room will remain in Dr. Carson’s current classroom.

Prekindergarten classroom assignments will be final on Registration Day - Thursday, July 26 (1:00 - 6:00 PM). 

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT - Intersessions at NO Extra Cost!

We are thrilled to offer a special promotion for the 2018/19 school year as we seek to better serve our families at the Preschool and Prekindergarten levels. We have added nineteen (19) extra days to the Early Learning Program calendar! We are keeping our Preschool and Prekindergarten classrooms open during our regularly scheduled Fall and Spring Intersessions.
