Aloha and Blessings to each of you!
As we look back on 68 years of ministry at Trinity Lutheran School, we have so many reasons to be thankful. Trinity has been the firm foundation in the lives of thousands of students and their families. By focusing on excellence and being centered in Christ, we will remain steadfast in serving our families, while we continue to seek new and safe ways to grow and improve our programs. It is our goal to draw out and inspire the best in our students as we provide them with opportunities to create, explore, and learn. Procedures and policies have been adapted to mirror the times we are living in, but we have seen that Trinity remains a blessing to its community. God is good, all the time, thus our theme verse, Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever”, is a perfect theme for us this school year. The certainty of God's love for us is reason to celebrate, and we thank and praise Him always!
I know we are living in unprecedented times. It seems like we are spinning in circles with all the changes, updates, and guidelines. Our hearts and minds can be overwhelmed with anxiety and worry. Well fear not! In the midst of all this, we find one thing that never
changes is the love our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, has for us! I am certain of this! As we begin this new school year, I welcome you to our Trinity family. We will share this love of Jesus daily with each of you. And, with God's protection and provision for us, we will thrive this year in a safe, fun and most importantly, Christ-filled environment.
Trinity Lutheran has so much to be thankful for? A huge mahalo goes out to our dedicated Parents & Teachers of Trinity (PTT) and everyone's involvement in fundraising events. Our Regal fundraiser brought in more money than ever before! Our Dining for Trinity nights have been huge successes. Our annual golf tournament raised over $12,000! Every dollar earned directly benefits our students. What a blessing to have so many wonderful people working to be able to provide amazing opportunities for our keiki!
Our Crusader Athletics Program remains interscholastic, competitive, and fun, providing students as young as fourth grade with healthy opportunities to meet the physical and mental challenges of volleyball, basketball, cross country, and track and field. COVID limited our competitions last year, but we were able to provide intramural programs for our 5th-8th graders as well as some competitions for our Varsity teams! We look to bounce back stronger than ever this school year!
Not only do we offer extracurricular athletics, but Trinity Lutheran is proud to go above and beyond basic state requirements by maintaining our Physical Education (PE) program for all grade levels.
Yet another outstanding element that brings an abundance of pride to our school is Music. Fourth and fifth grade students perform as a Choir, while fifth through eighth grade students may choose Beginning or Advanced Band as an elective course. Students in kindergarten through third grade have regularly-scheduled music classes, while daily musical enrichment is built into our preschool and prekindergarten curriculum.
Thanks to the generous donations of our stakeholders, our STEAM center has grown and will continue to provide stimulating and challenging lessons and activities for all our students.. We are excited to offer a variety of age-appropriate resources and activities that students of all grades will be able to engage in daily. Trinity's intentional and balanced implementation of technology for the sake of enhancing the learning experience and preparing our students for their futures remains a priority. We are thrilled to offer a variety of elective classes such as: Robotics, Yearbook, and Strategic Games for our middle school, while finding new and meaningful ways to use our iPads and Chromebooks in every classroom.
Above all else, we are faithful to our mission of sharing the love of Jesus Christ. It is Christ’s love, as shown in our devoted faculty and staff, that sets apart Trinity Lutheran School. It is a blessing to serve our O'hana each day.
Mahalo for taking the time to learn about Trinity Lutheran School. We hope you will join us in celebrating 68 years of serving the families of Central Oahu, with decidedly Christian, and distinctively excellent education. God bless you and keep you safe.
In HIS peace,
Kyle D. Klemp, Principal
