A message from Mrs. Cuevas:
2023-2024 School Year Registration is Here!
It is once again time to open registration for the upcoming school year. We kick off Catholic Schools Week this Sunday and registration for returning students opens Monday. I hope that all returning students will quickly get their applications completed so that we can determine how many slots we have available for new incoming students. New Student registration begins February 14th. We are very excited about the number of inquiries we have received thus far from prospective students, and we are very quickly reaching our maximum enrollment capacity. Please take the time to get your registration applications completed as soon as possible.
Last year, we embarked on a multi-level, multi-year plan to bring improvements to the programs available to our students, raise teacher pay to be closer to that of their peers in public schools, and ensure the continuity of high-quality Catholic education for all of our children; all while keeping a balanced and healthy budget in the forefront - no small undertaking for sure. Our challenge is to accomplish all of this without placing any more significant burden on our school families, and in that spirit, The Society of St. George has been created.
Our budgetary goals remain focused on educational excellence and nurturing a faith-based Catholic environment. Our outstanding faculty has been blessed with the addition of several new, highly qualified, dynamic teachers, and many new programs have been successfully implemented, all of which contribute to our continued academic success and the spiritual growth of our students. We must keep this momentum going, which will, in turn, require another slight tuition increase.
February also brings Coastal Charm. This is a beautiful event for our school community that provides a fun time and much-needed resources to fund our school. If you want to get involved, please call our office today!
I genuinely want each of you to know that we believe that Holy Trinity is truly a place where children love to learn and learn to live because of the support of our fantastic community and our wonderful families!
Pax et bonum,

A Message From Mrs. Jordyn:
You don't need a reason to be kind. Kindness is always a choice. The more you practice it, the more natural it becomes! Watch these videos with your family to find out all the different ways you can spread kindness to the world.

KINDNESS... Talk About It!
Tell me about a time when someone was kind to you. How did it make you feel?
What do you think kindness means, and why is it important?
Who is someone in your class you can show kindness to?
What are some ways you can be kind to people at home, at school, and in your community?
KINDNESS... Practice it!
Spend time writing encouraging notes to people in your community and hand deliver them. This could be neighbors, policemen, teachers, postal workers, nursing home residents, firefighters, etc.

Holy Trinity Catholic Elementary School Song
Holy Trinity, Father, Spirit, Son
We come together here as one
To pray, to learn, and to grow
In the loving kindness that you know.
Come with us to work and play together
We are all a part of one big family,
In a school filled with joy, spirit, peace
Our love will grow as you can see.
Sharing God’s love as a community
Each day we work to build a unity
Caring and loving others as we go
Just as Jesus taught us years ago.
