Holy Trinity Catholic School January 19th, 2023
Our Mission Statement
A Note from Mrs. Longden
Most of the Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee celebrate Catholic Schools Week at the end of January and why wouldn’t we want to celebrate all of the wonderful events that happen in our growing and thriving school?
There are many reasons for the continued success of Holy Trinity Catholic School. Most importantly, we have a strong, talented and dedicated staff that work tirelessly to ensure our children are well-educated in academics, Catholic Teaching, service to others and a well-developed spiritual and prayer life, among many other great things.
We have many benefactors who have been incredibly generous with their gifts of talent, time and treasure. We have businesses who have provided continued support through grants that have allowed our school to continue to offer current technology, learning resources, and much more. We have many prayer warriors that continue to pray for our school students and staff. We have two parishes that continue to make Catholic School a priority. These are just a few of the reasons our school is thriving.
If you haven’t already, please take some time this month to take a closer look at Holy Trinity Catholic School, a great gem of our community, which continues to form our young people into better students, better disciples and better citizens who are already changing the world in countless positive ways.
Catholic Schools Week
Catholic Schools Week 2023
Theme: “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.”
We are working on scheduling activities and fun for students the week of Catholic Schools Week. See the schedule attached of dress-up days and events.
Catholic Schools Week is January 29th-February 4th
Home and School will be having a Chili Dinner on Sunday, January 29th.
Below is the sign-up genius to help with the Chili Dinner.
If you have questions regarding the chili dinner, please reach out to Courtney Gruber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
6th, 7th, 8th Grade Parents
We would love to have our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students come and help at the Chili Dinner on Sunday. Jesus taught and modeled the importance of serving others. The students have an opportunity to imitate Jesus and contribute to the continued growth of our school and community by helping at the Chili Dinner.
If your child is able to help with the Chili Dinner on Sunday, even if it is for a half hour or so, please sign up on the sign-up genius or email Mrs. Longden at email@example.com.
The class with the highest percent of volunteers will earn a reward.
Scholastic Book Fair
We will be having our Coin Drive the week before from Monday, January 23rd-Thursday, January 26th. See the attached sheet for more information.
Reminder: The school cell phone policy is:
"Cell phones will be turned in to the teacher at the beginning of the day. Cell phones are prohibited during the day. Any device visible to teachers or staff will be confiscated and sent to the office. On the first offense the students will be able to pick the phone up at the end of the school day. On subsequent offenses a parent/guardian will need to pick the phone up." (Family Handbook pg. 20)
This also includes using Watches with cellular service to communicate with others throughout the day. If students need to contact parents during the school day, they should be going through the school office, not using watches and cellular devices.
Please talk with your children who have these devices at school. If it becomes a problem, we will take the devices away.
As a reminder as well, during ITBS testing in March, Fitbits, Apple Watches, Samsung Watches, etc. will not be able to be worn during the testing.
