Before the Thanksgiving holiday, we had our "Day of Giving" which was on Fall Fun Day. We asked all of our families to participate and we got some thoughtful and generous gifts. Perhaps the sweetest gift came from one of our youngest Knights, Leon Lazarian, who is in TK.
Last week, we had one of our community's most favorite events - Grandparents and Family Day. Held on Veteran's Day to honor all those who have served and are serving, it also gives us the opportunity to honor all of our grandparents and special friends who invest in our students and our community.
California Scholarship Federation (CSF) is an academic service organization in which many of our Rhetoric School students participate. Their Fall service project had them coordinating with Children’s Hunger Fund.
Last Monday, October 25th, our NHS chapter created and collected baskets filled with art supplies and snacks and took them to Zoe International.
The Hawaiian-themed homecoming was a creative and yummy way to welcome our alumni back. The Aloha was in the air from the moment one arrived at the gate. With leis and Hawaiian decor all around, our Ohana (family) couldn't miss the theme.
Every semester in Mrs. Caddow's Honors Government class, she hosts local politicians for a debate. The intention is to solidify the students’ understanding of the purpose and influence of political parties in our country and government entities.
Recently, Trinity obtained a technology grant to support our Imago Dei School students. The grant was generously given by Joni and Friends (https://www.joniandfriends.org/), a wonderful organization that supports people with disabilities. Joni Erickson Tada is a friend of Trinity and has even spoken to our community in the past.
The long-awaited reopening of Great Dei Coffee hit Trinity on Monday. Students, parents, faculty and staff lined up to get their fix of caffeine and/or sugar!
On Friday, September 10th, Trinity’s chapter of the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) assembled to honor the 20th anniversary of 9/11. As part of the YAF Never Forget project, the students placed 2,977 flags on the lawn at the Trinity campus to memorialize the lives lost on September 11, 2001. An additional four flags were placed to honor the four lives lost in the attack in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. This year, they added another 13 flags for the lives lost recently in the withdrawal from Afghanistan.
As we embark on each new school year, Trinity takes time with its students to focus on the spiritual. It begins with chapel on the first day of school and then this week, Rhetorical School students go to camp for our annual Spiritual Emphasis Week.
