It has been a busy summer in the school office with lots of good-byes to great staff members and the hiring of new staff.  We are excited to announce the following: 

     Leslie Drees will be our kindergarten teacher this upcoming 2017-2018 school year.  A 2006 graduate of Concordia University in Nebraska where she earned her degree in Elementary Education, Leslie’s first and only teaching position has been here at Trinity.  Leslie has directed the school bands and has taught kindergarten-fourth grade music for eleven years and kindergarten-fourth grade physical education for ten years.   Leslie will continue to direct the bands.


    Sara Brandt, a teacher at Zion Lutheran’s Little Lambs preschool, will teach kindergarten through fourth grade physical education classes.  Sarah graduated from the University of Northern Iowa.  She is a licensed K-12 PE teacher who formerly taught in the College Community school system.


    Stephanie Jemtrud will be our new Child Care director.   She will begin leading our program on August 7.  A graduate of the University of Kansas, Stephanie has a degree in Elementary Education and is presently a preschool teacher at Cedar Rapids Day School.  Stephanie has nine years of experience in Early Childhood programs.
