Holy Trinity Catholic School

Home of the Saints - May 4, 2016

Thank You

We celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week this week! We are so blessed to have the faculty and staff that we have and we thank them for all they do! They give of themselves to ensure that your children have a supportive and caring learning environment rooted in our Catholic faith. When you get a chance, drop your child's teacher a note to say thank you for all they do and all they are!

From the Principal's Desk:

May Crowning

May Crowning Masses will be held on Thursday, May 5th at 8:00am at Central Campus and on Friday, May 6th at 12:30pm at East Campus. The East Campus Mass will be led by the Eighth Grade Class and all are welcome to join us for either Mass. We ask that the kids abide by Mass Dress or may dress up a little nicer. We also ask that each child bring a real or artificial flower with which to honor Mary at Mass.


Holy Trinity Catholic School Talent Show

Any student who wishes to participate in the school talent show, to be held on Friday, May 27th, needs to have the Talent Show Form signed and returned to the school office by this Friday, May 6th. If a student is part of a group, either the group form needs EACH student's parent signature OR EACH student in the group needs to complete their own form.
