Virtue - Gratitude
“The Catechism of the Catholic Church says, “Every joy and suffering, every event and need can become the matter of Thanksgiving which, sharing in that of Christ, should fill one’s whole life” (#2648).
It can be easy to race through a day without giving thought to how grateful we should be, even for the splendor of a sunset or the fidelity of a close friend. Yet we are called not only to be grateful for these things, but even for the difficulties in life, which God allows for the greater good of our salvation. Everything God has made, everything that happens, is a gift. So, in all things, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His love endures ...Forever!” (Psalm 118)
What is Gratitude? Seeing everything as a gift and being thankful
Ways to show Gratitude:
Pre-K-2nd: Before you go to bed each night, thank God for ten things He gave you that day.
3rd-5th: Think about one person/thing/situation that you think you might be taking for granted. Make a goal of expressing gratitude for that person/things/situation several times this month.
6th-8th: Discuss with a friend different ways that a person can show gratitude. Do people show gratitude differently, according to their personalities? Try out one of the things your friend does to show gratitude and let them try out one that you usually do.
Gratitude Service Project: 1,000 Reasons we are grateful to God!
Throughout the month of January and February, students, families, staff and the greater Holy Trinity community will be invited to participate in the building of a bulletin-board display featuring 1,000+ reasons we are grateful to God for the blessings in our lives. This is a new project that will serve as a visual reminder for the countless gifts God provides to us as individuals, as families, and as a community of faith. Participation is easy! Find the template attached below, print, complete as a family (or make multiple copies to share!), and return to school (Attn: Mrs. Longden - Gratitude Project).
Thank you for your support of this visual prayer!
Students were greeted with this double rainbow at recess on Monday welcoming them back to school!
A Note from Mrs. Longden
Wishing you all God’s gift of Love during this beautiful Christmas Season! Love of Family ~ Love of Friends~ Love of Community and Country
I hope everyone was able to enjoy the short break we had and enjoyed your Christmas and New Year festivities!
Many wonderful things have been taking place at school during the 2020 Advent and Christmas Season. The classrooms, students, and staff have prayed together as a community and the students have been very attentive and reverent. Our spirits are ready for Christ!
We are looking forward to planning Catholic Schools Week and preparing for Lent which begins on February 17th.
Attention Kindergarten Parents

Percent of Cases: 6.3%
Update to COVID Protocols:
Temperatures will not be taken at lunch time anymore, just in the mornings when entering school.
If you must travel, you should prepare for:
o Changing travel restrictions.
o Staying in-place if you get sick, which could mean isolating or quarantining at your travel destination, thereby postponing your return.
o Planning for the impact of being away from your home for an extended period of time if you are required to isolate or quarantine in-place.
o Some cities and counties in Wisconsin may require you stay at home or self-quarantine after travel. While a 14-day quarantine period remains the safest option, there is additional guidance to shorten quarantine further. For more information, visit our COVID-19: Close Contacts webpage.
If you have to schedule an appointment for your child during the day, please let the office know in the morning at the latest. We appreciate if you can have appointments in the morning before coming to school, or at the end of the day, so they will not be returning to school.
You will need to sign your child out and back in if they are coming back to school. They should only be going to the appointment and back to school, not stopping for lunch or other areas. When signing them back in you will be stating you took them to the appointment and came right back, with no stopping.
