Good morning all,
Congratulations to Rheya King who captured third place in the individual NHIAA Girls State Golf Tournament. This achievement is a credit to Rheya and her years of effort and dedication to golf. It also is a prelude to the team participating in the state tournament this upcoming week. We wish the team well as it competes for the Division II title.
This upcoming week will definitely be a busy one. On Wednesday, Oct. 14, freshmen will take the PSAT 8/9 exam while the sophomores and juniors will take the PSAT. Seniors on are not in school on the 14th, but they encouraged to take advantage of this time to “visit” colleges or work on their college applications. Students will be dismissed from school after exams. The PSAT 8/9 exam is scheduled to end at 10:45, and the PSAT is scheduled to end at 11:15.
On Thursday, the juniors will take part in their retreat. For further information please contact Ms. Thompson at email@example.com. Friday, Oct. 16, is the last day of the first quarter.
However to begin the week, we have Monday off due to Columbus Day. Everyone has worked hard to make in person education a reality, so take this extra day to refresh and relax, but please remain focused on staying well.
In recognition of Columbus Day and the explorer in all of us, let us pray . . .
In my journeying with you,
may I never lose my sense of direction,
never lose sight of the landmark
towards which I travel.
And should cloud or rain obscure my vision,
may I draw closer to you,
so that my feet may tread
in your footsteps,
your words be my encouragement,
and your love my protection
against the storms that assail me.
Covid 19 Updates
Again, I want to thank the students, faculty and parents for their continued cooperation in our implementation of our COVID protocols. Because of their efforts we have created an environment in Trinity that reduces the risk of contracting COVID-19 while at school. We also want to encourage our students to consider their out of school environment and avoid, when possible, situations that may increase their chances of being exposed to the virus. Additionally, I recommend students think about getting the flu shot this year. Flu season typically begins around October, so it is not too early to receive the vaccine.
Please also remember that for a student to remote learn our guidance director, Mr. Mullen, must be contacted to formulate a plan regardless of the length of remote learning. You may contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, if a student needs to suddenly go remote (i.e. wakes up feeling ill) that student should email his or her teachers before 7:30am the first day of being remote. If a student is remote learning for the long term, the individual must have a plan approved by guidance. A student should access remote learning if he or she is sick or quarantined, and under both circumstances must meet Trinity’s protocol before returning to school. A student accessing remote learning without prior approval will not be allowed to participate in any after school activities until he or she returns to school.
We had a parent group executive committee meeting Wednesday night, and this committee is eager to have interested parents join them in participating in events throughout the year that focus on community - spiritually, athletically, and socially. We plan to have an in person meeting around Oct. 7 to share more details regarding the group. You will also be able to attend this meeting virtually and more information will be shared as we approach the week of Oct. 5. In the meantime in conjunction with our Advancement Office, Trinity is hosting “Trinity Night at McIntyre” a twenty-one and over outdoor event at McIntyre on Oct. 3. Please be on the lookout for an email from Mrs. Weidner, our director of advancement, with further information.
We planned to have a virtual all school Mass on Wednesday, Sept. 16, but after meeting with our campus minister, theology chair, and chaplain, we decided that a virtual Mass would not truly bring the school together to celebrate the Mass. Although it may be some time before we can come together as one community for Mass, Fr. Josh plans to have four in person Masses each week during theology classes. This will provide each student Mass twice a month. I also invite you (parents and students) to join together to pray the rosary every Wednesday at 7:30am via Zoom. Below is the invitation to the gathering. There will be weekly intentions including intentions to specific Trinity departments.
