Dear Families and Friends of Trinity,

We were blessed with beautiful weather to finally celebrate our annual PTO Luau and Family Night on October 13th. Families and friends of Trinity conversed, casually mingled and shared in high spirits and merriment for the good of our students and the school community. Students were able to navigate through the school on a scavenger hunt so parents could visit the various classrooms their children experience each day. A big “shout out” to our PTO Executive Team for putting together a spectacular Luau. The 8th grade raised $1,800 from the spaghetti dinner to help fund their November trip to Boston. The students of Trinity are fortunate to have such a dedicated parent body so devoted to our school. An old saying is: “Kindness is like a boomerang, it always returns.” Thank you to all who support the PTO in so many ways.

The PTO was created to facilitate communication between our school, parents, guardians, faculty, staff and the TES Board of Trustees to assist in fostering a sense of school spirit to build community at Trinity Episcopal School.  Many of you do not know each other, but you should know that by choosing Trinity you already have many things in common. By joining the PTO you can help plan events and bring new ideas to our community.

As a parent or guardian, faculty, staff or school board member – you are automatically enrolled as a PTO member and are welcome to all PTO general events. Our next general meeting is Thursday, November 9th . To become a voting member of the TES PTO, annual dues are required. These dues enable the PTO to present community and educational programs to the TES Family to fulfill our mission. By submitting your dues, you will be contributing to the activities that the PTO sponsors such as:

  • Back to School
  • Luau
  • Service Projects
  • Movie and Game Nights
  • Holiday Ornament party
  • Parent Education
  • End of the Year Party

My vision for next school year is to have all families pay their $35 dues during registration and monies collected will go towards the above along with back-to-school supplies, field trips and other cultural activities.

Currently, family (household) pay their dues as part of registration and are collected at any time but early memberships help with planning. Please use the form at the bottom of the page to become a voting member by submitting your dues. Simply detach this form and return it with your check to your child’s teacher by November 3rd. For your convenience, this form will also be available online on the TES PTO webpage (PTO tab).

With warm regards,

Mark Ravelli / Head of School
