Trinity Parents' Organization


All Trinity parents automatically belong to the Trinity Parents' Organization (TPO) and pay an annual fee of $40 to support TPO-sponsored programs. There are many leadership opportunities for parents. The nominating committee collects names throughout the year of parents who would like to be considered for a TPO Executive Committee office, or who would like to service as a chairperson of a TPO standing committee. Reimbursement forms can be submitted to the TPO Treasurer for TPO-related expenses.

Meetings

TPO Meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at Trinity House at 8 a.m. All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend.
