Trinity Parents Organization


All Trinity parents automatically belong to the Trinity Parents Organization (TPO) and pay an annual fee of $55 per student to support TPO-sponsored programs. Senior parents pay an additional fee of $100 per student to fund our exceptional senior experiences! Please browse our page and explore the many parent volunteer opportunities TPO provides. Also, there are 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 serve as a chairperson of a TPO standing committee. Please contact TPO President Leigh Zehnder leighzehnder@gmail.com or Sandy Godinho, Advancement Associate, Annual Giving & Parent Relations godinhos@trinityprep.org with any questions.  Reimbursement forms can be submitted to the TPO Treasurer for TPO-related expenses.
