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

https://www.catholicschoolswalk.org/Soles-Walk or https://app.mobilecause.com/vf/SOLES/team/HolyTrinity


contact the school for more information.

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.

November Virtue of the Month is 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.

Red Ribbon Week


Children of parents who talk to their teens regularly about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who don’t; yet, only a quarter of teens report having these conversations.

Red Ribbon Week® (October 23-31), the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the nation, is your opportunity to get the ongoing conversation started.

This year’s theme is Drug Free Looks Like Me™

Christmas Concert


Holy Trinity is planning their Christmas Concert for Monday, December 20th.


We have been seeing a lot of RSV going around the school. RSV, or Respiratory syncytial virus, is a common respiratory virus that usually causes mild, cold-like symptoms. Most people can recover from RSV in a week or two, but RSV can be very serious. It is the most common cause of bronchiolitis and pneumonia. Some symptoms to watch for include: congested or runny nose, dry cough, low-grade fever, sore throat, sneezing, and headache. Please watch for these symptoms and seek medical attention if needed.


% Out: 0.6%

We do not have many out with COVID right now, but we are having a lot of students out with colds, flu, RSV, pneumonia. Please be mindful and keep students home if they are feeling sick. Contact your doctor if symptoms persist.

COVID Mitigation Protocols. Attached are the COVID protocols that were emailed home.

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.
