A Warm Welcome to the Trinity Parent Organization

2 Corinthians 9:6 (Trinity School verse, 2012–2013)
The TPO Mission
The purpose of the Trinity Parent Organization is to promote a strong sense of community in partnership with the school and to facilitate communication, cooperation, involvement, and service throughout the Trinity School community.
The TPO has established a number of goals and objectives for its service. These guide the plans and programs of the TPO. For a list of these goals and objectives, see the TPO Mission webpage.
All parents and guardians of students of Trinity School are members of the TPO. There are no membership dues.

TPO Meetings for the entire parent body are held on the third Thursday of each month in the South Building Library from 8:15–9:30 a.m. Please join us and get plugged in to the mission of Trinity School...it's a great way to meet new friends too!
