Middle School Informational Night

Students who will be entering the middle school grades are invited to an informational night this Thursday, February 18th at 6:30pm at East Campus in the Auditorium/Cafeteria. This is a great opportunity to learn what Holy Trinity Middle School has to offer, from classes to athletics, and everything in between!

Re-enrollment Forms

We kindly ask that you please turn the re-enrollment forms in by next Friday, February 19th. This helps us to begin to make the necessary preparations for the new school year.

2016-17 Financial Assistance Information

We are blessed to be able to offer various forms of financial assistance to our school families so that children may receive a Catholic education. We have received the new guidelines for the 2016-17 school year and have posted it on the website. Please review the information and if it pertains to you, please complete the necessary paperwork. If you have questions at any time, please do not hesitate to contact me, Mr. Tyler Lemen, or Mrs. Angie Welp. We are more than happy to walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have.

Current School Choice Families

You will find an additional school choice envelope included in the purple folder this evening. This contains the second endorsement form indicating that your child is indeed a student at Holy Trinity Catholic School and that funding for your child's academics should be directed to the school. This form needs your printed name, signature, and date and needs to be returned TOMORROW, Thursday, Feb 18th. Thank You for your prompt attention to this matter!

Snow Make-Up Day

We are now IN SESSION on Friday, April 15th.

Fish Fry

Thank you to all who helped make the first fish fry a success! Even with the cold weather, we had a great turnout and a genuine spirit of fellowship! The worker list for the fish fry on Feb 26th is coming home in purple folders tonight. We still have some open shifts, so if you are able to help, it would be greatly appreciated. Please contact Phil Clauss at pjclauss1975@gmail.com. Thank you for your support - both in working and enjoying the meal!

ISTEP Testing

ISTEP testing will begin on Monday, Feb 29th and continue through March 11th. This first round of testing is the Applied Skills portion where students are asked to work problems, explain their reasoning, and read and respond to the text while citing evidence, to name a few things! We are working on the testing schedule so that the entire EAST Campus is testing at the same time with minimal distractions and with the least number of testing days and times for the students (and teachers). With this in mind, we certainly appreciate your help in making sure your child is at school on time, does not need to leave for appointments during the day, is well rested and has a good breakfast to fuel the brain. Thank you in advance for your help!

Volunteer Background Checks

The Diocese is now contracting with a new background check company, Selection.com, in keeping with our stated Policy on Background Checks. As part of the new process, our current volunteers and employees will be re-screened quarterly. This does NOT require anything additional on your part. It is important to know that you may receive e-mails informing you that a new background check has been done. Please do not worry, this is all in accord with the safety and protection policies the Diocese has in place.

Lenten Resources for the Family

This Lenten season is a time for us to be happy! That sounds so strange to say as Lent normally brings to mind more solemn times. However, this really is a time to rejoice in the unconditional love that God has for us and an incredible opportunity to grow closer in our personal relationship with Jesus. Thus, I am sharing with you a resources from Dynamic Catholic on having the Best Lent Ever. I am truly enjoying spending a few more minutes in prayer and reflection and hope you will enjoy this thought provoking program too! May you have a happy Lent!
