Jr. High Note from Mr. Hitch

Happy April, Holy Trinity!

It feels like we are on the final stretch of our school year as we are quickly approaching the end. All of the students have worked very hard all year and I greatly appreciate each one of them. The following will outline a new benefit program HT is offering to companies, basketball, STEM, and mathematics updates. As always, please reach out if you have any questions.

May God bless you all,


High School Acceptance

I want to give a big shout out to Ean, Dylan, Chris, and Rian, for receiving scholarships to attend Mater Dei in the Fall. Their hard work and dedication will lead them far in life. I also want to send congrats to all 14 students who were accepted into their high school of choice.

Holy Trinity had 100% acceptance rate this year along with

4 scholarship offers with 3 of those being FULL RIDES!

Way to put in the hard work in 8th grade! I know God has great plans for all of you!

HSPT Study Club

The junior high is putting together a club to promote the success of our students on the HSPT exam. Permission slips will be sent home this week. The club starts on April 6th. If you have any additional questions, please reach out to me via email.

8th Grade

The 8th grade mathematics class has worked very hard all year. This class is very focused each and every day, and wants to learn more about mathematics. Keep up the great work, everyone!

This month, we are jumping into stats. I am confident to say that all of these students will benefit from this month's material!

8th Grade Accelerated

The 8th grade accelerated mathematics class has worked very hard all year. This class is very focused each and every day, and wants to learn more about mathematics. Keep up the great work, everyone!

This month, we are covering stats (more specifically the bell curve). This is a very high level chapter found in stats. This should be a challenging, but fun unit.

With this being an accelerated class, we will be moving at a rapid rate with the goal of covering introduction high school material.

7th Grade

The 7th grade mathematics class is a group who loves to learn! The month of March has much in store for this class as we continue in the Eureka books and incorporate Khan Academy lessons. I want to thank all of the students who participate in class and make an effort to always turn in their homework on time. Keep up the great work!

This month, we are covering Stats.

The STEM class has covered deep topics while completing fun and interactive projects. This class is one of the many things Holy Trinity offers that makes this community shine. We are in the middle of our Roller Coaster Unit where we are learning about velocity, acceleration, and scientific laws.

To conclude this STEM year, we are going to host a Roller Coaster walk around in the hall. This will be a fantastic opportunity for our students to show off their amazing work this trimester. The winning team will be determined by the audience! Parents, make sure to bring your phone and scan the QR code to vote for your favorite coaster!

6th Grade

The 6th grade math class is progressing well, and working very hard this trimester! The homework completion class wide for the month of March is something every teacher dreams about! Keep up the great work, 6th Grade! I look forward to the month of April.

This month we are going to jump into stats!

Girl's basketball has started and is off to an AMAZING start! We are currently at the TOP of the league with our most recent win over OLG. Keep up the great work girls! I see a championship in your near future!
