Parent Teacher Organization

Purpose:

All parents have been directed by the Word of God to raise their children in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord,” (Ephesians 6:4) and to “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”  (Proverbs 22:6)  The purpose of this organization is to help parents and teachers achieve greater competence in Christian child training.  To achieve this, the organization will seek to:

  • Help parents increasingly understand and appreciate their children and provide parents with the skills needed for Christian child training.
  • Help teachers increasingly understand the needs of the Christian home and extend their influence into the home.
  • Help create a closer relationship between the home and the school, especially through closer cooperation between parents and teachers.
  • Provide educational and fellowship activities for parents and students.
  • Provide support to the Board of Education fundraisers and ongoing fundraisers and events.
  • Provide help and support for school facility improvement.
  • Support Trinity student body activities/functions in cooperation with teachers and administration.
  • Act as a link between parents and teachers/administration.
  • To partner with Trinity Church offering both the church and school opportunities to share resources, events, and fellowship.
