Holy Trinity CHS Weekly Bulletin

The Mission of Holy Trinity Catholic High School
Holy Trinity Catholic High School seeks to form the Christian Leaders of Tomorrow; we strive to develop the intellect, educate the heart, and form the character of each student by giving witness to Gospel values.
At Holy Trinity Catholic High School we believe communication between the school and community is crucial to making our students successful. This Weekly Bulletin will detail any announcements and events that are taking place the upcoming week. Please look for this bulletin every Friday afternoon to be sent to your email address on file.
Message from Mr. Evans:
I hope everyone has had a great weekend! Please notice the schedule is a little different next week. We have lots of exciting things going on, but the most important to point out is that we will be celebrating Mass on Wednesday next week at CTK Catholic Church. Mass starts at 8am so students will need to adjust their schedules just a little bit. If you ride the bus we will take care of getting you to and from the church. We will also provide transportation from the church for those of you who will be dropped off.
For those of you not familiar with All Saints Day, it is a solemn holy day of the Catholic Church celebrated annually on November 1. The day is dedicated to the saints of the Church, that is, all those who have attained heaven. It should not be confused with All Souls' Day, which is observed on November 2, and is dedicated to those who have died and not yet reached heaven.
Although millions or even billions of people may already be saints, All Saints' Day observances tend to focus on known saints --that is those recognized in the canon of the saints by the Catholic Church.
I hope that everyone is having a great school year! Please let us know if we can be of any assistance to you or your family. You are always in my prayers, and I am excited about seeing what the rest of the year holds for us. Have a great week, and Go Celtics!
Celtic For A DAY
Dear Celtic Families,
Our annual 8th Grade CELTIC FOR A DAY event is coming up and we want to extend an invitation to any and all 8th graders you may know, be they siblings, extended family, neighbors, or friends.
The event is this Thursday, November 2nd, from 8am to 1pm. The 8th graders wishing to attend may ride the school bus if they call the office and make arrangements (all St. Mary's 8th graders will be riding the bus from St. Mary's), or they may be dropped off by parents by 8am (for gathering in the Chapel at 8:15am).
If you know an 8th grade student who'd like to attend, please have them call the office to reserve their spot and tell us their t-shirt size.
Senior Class News:
National Merit Scholarship Program
I am happy to announce that Catherine Vincent has been named as a Commended Student in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although he will not continue in the 2018 competition for National Merit Scholarships, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/MNSQT).
Congratulations again to Catherine Vincent!
National Hispanic Scholars
Alexander Enriquez and Carlos Garcia, both members of the senior class at Holy Trinity Catholic High School, have been recognized as National Hispanic Scholars by the College Board’s National Hispanic Recognition Program. They scored in the top 2.5% among Hispanic and Latino PSAT/NMSQT test takers.
The National Hispanic Recognition Program, established in 1983, is a College Board program that provides national recognition of the exceptional academic achievements of Hispanic high school seniors and identified them for post-secondary institutions.
Hispanic students enter the program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) as high school juniors. This year, more than 156,000 Hispanic students participated in the PSAT/NMSQT.
Congratulations to both of you, and we are very proud!
1st Quarter Honor Roll:
I am extremely excited and proud to publish the honor from the first academic quarter. Congratulations to all these students for their hard work and dedication in the classroom. The list is pretty long, but I would love to see new people on it next quarter as well. Great job Celtics!
The 2017 1st quarter academic honor roll is attached.

Spooky Sweet Tuesday
Tuesday, October 31st is "Spooky Sweet Tuesday" and we will have treats that correlate with Halloween. This is the biggest Sweet Monday out of all!
Parents, if you would like to contribute treats for this special day, please send two dozen treats that relate with our Halloween theme (fruits and veggies would be great also) and please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we have an idea of what is being brought (and how much).
Please put your name (please print) on your treats so that we can give proper thanks and keep track of the parent volunteer hours.
We always welcome parents to come help! This time we will start setting up at around 10:00 am in the cafetorium. If you are interested in helping, please sign in at the office before coming to the cafetorium! You will also get to see the students dressed up in their creative Halloween costumes this time!
Thank you so much in advance for contributing to this great event! The students love it! We could not have these events without your help!
May God bless you all and have a great week!!!Kiyeon Glandon
Annual Fund Appeal
For more than 20 years, Holy Trinity Catholic High School has educated hundreds of young people, preparing them to be people of Faith and productive citizens. To remain a competitive, faith-based, college preparatory school we rely on our community of parents, grandparents, Board members, faculty, staff, alumni, former parents, and friends for their support.
To celebrate our 20 years, we are committed to achieving 100% participation from our school community. Gifts to the Fr. Charles Davis Annual Appeal support our Tuition Assistance program. No gift is too small, because every gift helps a student! We have set our tuition so that we can remain affordable to our families, but tuition revenue covers only a portion of what it costs to educate students at Holy Trinity. The annual appeal helps keep our school affordable to families while allowing us to make sure no one is denied a Catholic education due to financial need.
At Holy Trinity we are challenged to continue our mission to educate the Christian Leaders of Tomorrow. We firmly believe that we can and will meet this challenge, but we need your help to be successful! Please join us in keeping Holy Trinity Catholic High School strong by making your gift to the Father Charles Davis Annual Fund Appeal.
Yours in Christ,
Holy Trinity Catholic High School presents
