On Friday, September 11th, Trinity's chapter of the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) assembled to honor and remember, and Never Forget, that fateful day in 2001. The day before, the small group of students had placed 2,981 flags in the grass to memorialize the lives lost. The flags set the stage for a patriotic and powerful ceremony.
With all the uncertainty of COVID-19, we weren’t sure about Summer Camp 2020, but God was sure. He always is. We are very excited to be able to go forward with our program, even if it isn’t all that we had planned. We know it is exactly as God intended it to be. And we are having a great time!
At Trinity, we believe in an all-encompassing education. Students are academics, athletes, artists, and more. With the recent publication of the CIF-SS 2019-2020 Academic Award Winners, we see an example of our all-encompassing education on display. Not only have some of our athletic teams seen successful seasons in their athletic endeavors, but this demonstrates their attention to their academic education as well.
Trinity has responded to the COVID-19 crisis with an enthusiastic, thoughtful, creative approach to learning. Our campus may be closed for now, but our mission to produce young men and women of virtue, wisdom, purpose and courage remains alive and vibrant throughout this period. Our method of educating children in the Christian faith and classical tradition is shifting from face-to-face to virtual, and we see both challenges and opportunities with this shift. However, it does not alter in any way our commitment to the health, well-being, and growth of every student in our community.
Trinity regularly presents evidence for the Christian faith, so that students graduate knowing what they believe and why they believe it. Today, Upper School students attended a Scientific Apologia Symposium. Jonathan Noyes from Stand to Reason (STR.org) came to Trinity to present what he has learned about Intelligent Design.
Thanks to one of our generous families, the dirt area behind the building has been greatly improved. Last week, asphalt was laid and lines were painted for foursquare, hopscotch, pickleball and basketball. A low basketball hoop is placed at the end of the asphalt area.
It was truly "A Night to Shine" for our amazing students in the Imago Dei School, with awesome support from Trinity's NHS (National Honor Society) students.
Trinity's sixth-graders brought the Civil War to life with their annual "living history museum" and they were joined by Civil War re-enactors.
Varsity girls basketball came out victorious in their crosstown rivalry game against Santa Clarita Christian School in their own gym. Both crowds were loud and supportive, cheering their teams on to what they both hoped would be a victory.
Leaving so early in the morning that it's still dark outside, fifth-grade students meet in the Trinity parking lot, excited for what is an annual favorite for their class. They carpool down to Dana Point Harbor's Tallship Sails - Ocean Institute and they may or may not stop at Starbucks on the way.
