P.O.P.S. (Parents of Preschoolers)
P.O.P.S. is our parental volunteer group designed to help you get involved in your child's education right from the start. Studies show a direct correlation between parent involvement and student success in school. It is never too early to be a part of your child's formal learning by helping in the classroom supporting special events. In addition to helping in the classroom with activities, there may be occasional opportunities to support Trinity Christian Preschool with fundraiser endeavors. We also plan to offer other resources to support your family through our Parent Resource Center.
