The humming from the water fountain outside Principal Meyer’s office breaks the silence.

The silence – it’s almost eerie.

While it is summer break, Trinity Lutheran’s main entrance normally is still a continuous turnstile, with children, parents and congregational members navigating our building.

Not this summer.

Not for the past three and a half months.

There is hope, however.

Mr. Meyer shared last week that Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds is scheduled to provide an update at the beginning of July on the upcoming school year.

No matter the decision, Trinity Lutheran will be prepared.

We are committed.

Trinity Lutheran is crafting a return to learn plan, which includes contingency plans for whatever the upcoming school year may look like.

“We want to provide the very best education, no matter the circumstance,” Mr. Meyer said. “We will work very hard – just like our teachers did during this past fourth quarter – to make sure that happens.”

We are committed to our mission and vision.

“Our commitment to you is to prepare our students to be World Ready and Faith Secure,” Mr. Meyer said. “We want your kiddos to be ready to face this world and be successful citizens, but more importantly, we want them to be citizens of heaven.”

We are committed to partnering with families.

“If it is your desire for your child to have a Christ-centered education, we will do everything in our power to come up with a plan that works for you,” Mr. Meyer said.

We are committed.

Trinity School closes out its 150th year with a parade


Trinity’s parking lot was a traffic jam earlier this week.


There was honking.


There was screaming and yelling.


And, yes, there were some tears.


This wasn’t a normal traffic jam, however.


There were smiles.


There were strands of silly string flying through the air.


And, there were instruments playing (thank you to Mr. McCartney and Ms. Reiter).


For 90 minutes, car loads of families paraded through Trinity’s parking lot, saying their summer good-byes to our faculty and staff, who were dressed up in costumes.


“Thank you for all that you do,” one mom shouted from her car window.


“We miss you,” another mom exclaimed.


“We love you,” one student yelled.


Families had beautifully decorated signs hanging from their vehicles.


We will miss you teachers. Have a great summer, one sign read.


We are very thankful for all of you, God Bless you, another sign said.


For many, it was the first time seeing friends and teachers - from a distance - since the middle of March.


The parade was a great opportunity to unite and bring closure to Trinity's 150th school year.

Trinity Lutheran ChurchSchool is a very special place. As a school ministry we hold up the values of Christ, Curriculum, Character, and Community.  

First and foremost our school is a special place because we strive to keep Jesus Christ at the center of all things. Our Savior is in the middle of our daily instruction. Christ is at the center of our relationships as well. Jesus in the center means that our students learn how to express their sorrow over their sin and then have the blessing of rejoicing in the wonderful forgiveness that is ours in Christ.

A strong academic program is offered to students so that they can succeed in life. We also believe and teach that students with strong Christian character will be the leaders that are needed for the future of our nation, our churches, and our families.

Finally, we nurture in our students a belief that they can change their community and the world for the better.

We would welcome the opportunity to tell you more about the blessings of Lutheran Education. Please give us a call to set up a time to meet.

Finn McCool Spring Play


Marvin Wyatt knew he needed to act soon – not only for the sake of his middle-school daughter’s education, but for her safety.

“It was time,” Marvin said. “I had to find a better and safer environment for Maci.”

It got to a point, where Marvin didn’t feel safe dropping Maci off at the public school, where she attended through seventh grade.

“She was afraid, I was afraid,” Marvin said.

A conversation with a co-worker eventually led to Maci’s enrollment at Trinity Lutheran School.

“I wish I would have done this sooner,” said Marvin, who is a divorced co-parent. “Being a single parent never makes it easy, but it was important for me to have her attend Trinity.”

It’s important to Trinity Lutheran ChurchSchool as well.

“Coming to Trinity has been eye-opening – it’s night and day from the public school,” Marvin said. “Trinity sat down with us, cared for us and opened your arms to us. It’s just been fantastic. It’s all about value, and Trinity provides an extreme value. At the end of the day, this happened for a reason, and we are so thankful it did.”

For over 140 years our Lutheran school have helped children prepare for life in this world while growing in their understanding and faith in Jesus as their Savior from sin. God gives to us all the gift of forgiveness through the life, death, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ. God shows this to us in the Holy Bible; this is the source of our understanding of the relationship between God and man.

Trinity Lutheran School offers the opportunity for children to receive instruction and training in five specific areas of development:

  • Spiritual  
  • Academics
  • Physical
  • Social
  • Emotional

God has created each child as a unique person. Our curriculum is not simply academic teaching but is also an effort to nurture Christian relationships, both with God and with each other. Our prayer is that students leaving Trinity have grown close to the Lord, with a connection to Him strong enough to withstand the world’s challenges.
