The Classical, Christian education that Trinity offers is different from most other kinds of education because it trains the whole person. If we want to raise young men and women into maturity, we can’t just teach them to be brains on sticks. Instead, our task is to help our youth grow physically, socially, and spiritually.
This morning began with a beautiful commemoration of the events of September 11, 2001. Trinity's YAF (Young Americans for Freedom) chapter has been presenting this event for as many years as Trinity has had a high school. The ceremony began with alumni parent, Trinity board member and Parent Sponsor of Trinity's YAF chapter Greg Wolf, who welcomed guests and opened in prayer.
Trinity's annual Dedication Night is always a special time to gather before school begins, to dedicate the year to our Lord and pray over every student, parent, faculty, staff and board member. It's also an opportunity for our Head of School, Mrs. Caddow, to share new information about facilities, strategic plans, events, and other updates.
We have a small but mighty group of equestrian young ladies riding for Trinity. For last year's 21-22 season, they were awarded the Silver Cup. There were four riders, all riding in the Freshman Division 2' 6" fence height - meaning they have to jump over fences that are 2' 6" high.
Varsity Boys Volleyball is in a playoff run! After a back-and-forth battle against Marshall, the Knights came out on top with a 15-13 win in the fifth set and will head to the quarter-finals in Lawndale on Wednesday. They will play the Leuzinger Olympians (13-5-0, 2nd in their league). The contest will be a good one as the Knights are 11-6-4 and also 2nd in their league.
Over spring break, 42 Trinity students, alumni and parents traveled to Ensenada, Mexico to build two houses for some very needy families. The work was hard but challenging, and the results were incredible.
Wrestling has returned to Trinity, or more specifically, one very successful wrestler is representing his school. Many years ago, Trinity had a wrestling team, and then the sport went dormant. Freshman Hudson Sweitzer has resurrected the singlet for the Knights.
Last week, Trinity students were among the many volunteers for a beautiful local event - an unforgettable prom night experience - for people with special needs. “A Night to Shine” is sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation and is a complimentary event for people with special needs hosted by local churches around the world. The event is open to anyone living with disabilities, ages 14 and older.
On Friday, Trinity's Choral Ensemble, under the direction of Mrs. Elissa Butler, attended the High School Choir Invitational at The Master's University. It was an opportunity to perform for others and learn how to improve their craft.
The pursuit of beauty is a wonderful part of what we do at Trinity! Students are inspired and challenged in their creative art skills at every grade level. The Trinity community has enjoyed numerous displays as a result.
