Weekly Update

August 10th, 2023


May this season of trading
sunscreen and sandals
for backpacks and pencils
usher in familiar rhythms.

May you be gentle with yourself
for summer days that didn’t go as planned,
for more screen time than expected,
or for when the sameness of being home
overlapped into weeks now blurry.

May the highs and lows of summer
settle into gratitude for what was
and fill you with welcome for what is ahead.

A Note from Mrs. Longden

Welcome to Holy Trinity Catholic School!

When you enter our doors, you are entering more than a school. You are entering the home of your extended family. You will see how Holy Trinity assists parents in the upbringing of their children through education and faith formation. The values, morals, and spiritual education that are taught at home are further built upon at Holy Trinity. Teamwork creates a relationship based learning environment. Teachers, parents, and students are all active participants as a team to create the successes felt by one and all.

At Holy Trinity teachers continually incorporate faith and knowledge together in their instruction. Our Christian identity is evident at all times, so students learn through the eyes of faith. Through integration of faith lessons in all areas, students develop decision making skills that are based on a foundation of morals and values.

I am looking forward to working with you and your children for another successful school year!


Mrs. Longden
