PTLS (Parents and Teachers of Lutheran Schools)
The Bible clearly commands parents to provide for Christian upbringing and education of our children. Proverbs tells us, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6. PTLS shall help parents and teachers to work together in the Christian training of the children of Trinity. They shall help parents understand and appreciate their children, provide parents with the necessary skills for the Christian nurture and training of their children, and provide Christian fellowship.
The PTLS works closely with both the staff and the School Board to assist the staff and the students both in curricular and extracurricular activities. PTLS is a group of all elementary school and preschool parents (and anyone else in the congregation who wishes to be involved) who are concerned that our students not only receive every opportunity to succeed in their curricular studies but be given every opportunity for the extracurricular activities that are a part of every child’s student life. PTLS will share information about school activities and support selected projects.
This organization is not to interfere at any time with the administration of the school in its discipline or curriculum. All activities, including fundraising, of the organization must be in accordance with the bylaws of Trinity Lutheran School/Church and with the approval of the School Board. PTLS is for the purpose of putting forth positive support for the faculty, staff, and students. PTLS is to provide fellowship between parents, families, and teachers. PTLS is also to fund non-budgeted items for school.
