Children & Parents Day program has expanded to include an artist-in-residence with the purpose of an artist visiting a class to teach an art activity connected to the theme of the annual Children & Parents Day.
As a pre-activity for the ninth annual Children & Parents Day: Celebrating the Apple Fruit, first-graders at Trinity Lutheran designed apple sketches created by German Lutheran artist Inge Behrens.

Violet Orozco won the Silver medal. As a ode to the Winter Olympics 2014 is Sochi Mrs. Wilsher added to the classroom curriculum the Winter Olympic Games with her classroom decorated with flags representing other countries and the Olympic rings. The Olympic theme continued with the apple-art project, where Inge Behrens served as judge to select the apple-art projects worthy of Gold, Silver and Bronze medals. Kate Marra won the Gold, Violet Orozco was awarded the Bronze medal and Cohreena Mondesir received the Bronze. Mrs. Wilsher coordinated an actual ceremony where the three students received medals and the class stood and sung the National Anthem.
