Our walk for Holy Trinity is today. We will be walking around the community with signs and balloons!
The 2021 Soles for Catholic Education Walk offers Catholic schools the opportunity to raise funds towards a specific fundraising goal that will benefit students at their school. Schools will hold local community events to celebrate Catholic education, as well as give back to their local community through various service projects. We hope you will support our efforts by making a secure online donation. Make your gift today!
Thank you for supporting Catholic schools!
To donate, please go to

Funds raised will go towards the update of the playground.
100% of funds raised comes right back to Holy Trinity School. There is also a matching portion we receive from the Archdiocese.
VIRTUE OF GRATITUDE
Gratitude is having a thankful disposition of mind and heart.
Opposing Trait: Not expressing appreciation; taking other people and things for granted
Prayer: "Dear Jesus, Please give me a thankful heart, realizing that all I have comes from You."
Scripture: Luke 17:11-19
Saint: St. Augustine
Aspiration: Come Holy Spirit, increase in me the Gift of Piety
Ways to Cultivate: Count the good things (blessings) in one's life; express gratitude even when it is difficult.
Looks Like and Sounds Like: Smile at your mom after she cooks dinner. Say "Thank you". Say "I am thankful for.....". Write a thank you note. Say thank you even for difficult or unwanted things (homework, cleaning your room, etc.). Count the blessings in your life.
Thank you to the coaches and Mr. Herman, athletic director, for all the time and talent you gave to both the A Team and B Team girls this season!

Teacher Wish List
A Note from Mrs. Longden
Say to the Lord, "My refuge and fortress, my God in whom I trust." (Psalm 91:2)
This is a good reminder, especially in times of turmoil and anxiety, that our trust and confidence should always be in the Lord.
It's hard to believe the end of October is almost here! We are so blessed to have had no major issues with COVID during this part of school, and I just want to thank you all for your attentiveness to the guidelines in place and encourage everyone to keep up the great work.
We are about a month away from the end of the trimester. Grades can be an important measure of how a student is progressing, but they are not the only measure. I know that all of our teachers are more interested in each student doing their best, than the grade at the end of term. Our primary goal as a Catholic school is not to have your child earn good grades; we want them to grow into men and women of faith and virtue, prepared to enter the next stage of their lives. We hope that they come to school ready to learn because they wonder about the beautiful gift of creation that God has given us, and they are in awe of the love that Jesus shows us each day. The Catholic Church has always taught that parents are the primary educators of their children. Our school serves to assist you in the role, and by working together, we can have the greatest impact. I encourage you to check up on your child in a way that fits their needs. For a younger child, they may need more assistance, while an older child may need to practice taking initiative. Some students may be able to work independently, while others will need more support - even in the same classroom. Each student is unique, and each is a beautiful child of God.
