On Tuesday, November 8, Peoria county voters will consider whether to support The Peoria County School Facilities Sales Tax. If approved by voters, the ½% sales tax would generate $9 million annually to be shared among all Peoria County public school districts, based on enrollment. The Peoria Public Schools would receive approximately $4.2 million annually. The revenue is to be used specifically for school building improvements. The Peoria Public Schools building and grounds staff has assessed the needs of each building in the District. Here is the plan for Trewyn K-6 School.
55 Trewyn K-6 School students excelled with Perfect Attendance for the first grading period! Mrs. Peavler, school counselor, hosted a special breakfast for each student and a family member.

Grace's Table Ministries kicked off their school year program October 17th at Trewyn. Grace's Table Kids or "GTK!" is an extension of our ongoing relationship between Grace's Table and Trewyn K-6 School. Now in its 2nd school year of service, Grace's Table has been providing snack items throughout the school year for our after school and weekend programs, providing back to school supplies and backpacks for the entire school, purchasing uniform shirts when needed, providing quality specialty camping experiences for up to 10 students each summer, and is Trewyn's resource for garden land helping to support our 4H Club and neighborhood food outreach through the summer and fall. A team from Grace's Table Kids meets after school each Monday through the school year to present a strong character quality message, an opportunity to serve the school (for students K-6), and an opportunity for our PTO Tiger Pack parents to become involved. The first project for Grace's Table Kids was to help hydrate each of our teachers and staff with a surprise beverage in their morning mail. Their next effort is to plant this fall for a bounty of beautiful flowers to brighten Trewyn K-6 School next spring.
