Holy Trinity Catholic School
Home of the Saints - January 27, 2016
From the Principal's Desk:
Re-enrollment Forms and envelopes were sent home last week with all 4 yr old preschool through grade seven students and should be returned by February 19th. Incoming kindergarten students are invited to join us for Kindergarten Roundup on February 11th at 6:00pm at Central Campus in Endress Hall.
Yearbook Orders are due this Friday, January 29th. Please remember that yearbooks are being purchased separately from the picture package, so even if you did not want individual pictures, your child may still want a yearbook. We are excited for our first Holy Trinity Saints yearbook that will include all students from the three campuses!
Catholic Schools Week (CSW) 2016!
To pull this all off, we are still in need of some help with the Pancake Breakfast (set up on Sunday) and the Mardi Gras evening (Thursday). If you can help out, it would be greatly appreciated! Please see the sign-up genius link below. Thanks!
Friday, January 29th - Crazy Saint Spirit Day
We are kicking off the week with all out crazy purple, gold, and white spirit and a pep session! Students are welcome to go all out with this as Mass Day dress is suspended for the day - crazy hair, silly socks, leggings with shorts over the top, etc. I do ask for no face paint. We want the kids, and teachers too, to enjoy this and have some fun!
The HOOT Auction PRE-SALE Items begins this Friday at 6:00pm and ends at 9:00pm. These items are only available through the PRE-SALE and will not be up for grabs at the HOOT. It is a great way to be a part of the HOOT festivities and special events even if you are not attending. These are fun experiences that the kids really look forward to! I know I can't wait to see who my Principal for the Day is!!!
Saturday, January 30th - The HOOT!
Monday, February 1st - Celebrating the Community of Holy Trinity Catholic School
Students and staff will be receiving a new spirit shirt to be worn today to show unity as one school community, regardless of campus! We also want to celebrate the unity we have with our school parents and are starting our day off with Pancakes with Parents. We continue to celebrate our school community in faith as we have All School Mass at 9:00am, all are welcome to join us following breakfast!
Tuesday, February 2nd - Celebrating our Students!
What better way to have a little fun with our students than to have a pj day! We will also be working on a Prayer Wall at each campus that brings all of our students prayer requests to center focus.
Wednesday, February 3rd - Celebrating our Nation!
Wear red, white, and blue to celebrate being a part of our nation! The 8th grade class, as the highest grade in the school, will be attending the CSW Mass at St. Benedict Cathedral with Bishop Thompson, whom I am certain will ask them how they can practice the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy to help those in need in our nation and beyond. We ask that the 8th grade wear their CSW shirts (again) and khaki pants/skirt. As part of the We continue our celebrations into the evening with our Skate Party!
Thursday, February 4th - Celebrating Vocations!
What do priests, sisters, and many religious have in common? Why, they often wear black and white! So, search the closets, it is all things black and white today! We wrap up our week with the students at our Mardi Gras celebration this evening, which will take place at St. Joseph Parish Center, and features fun minute to win it games! A flyer for Mardi Gras is in the folders tonight.
Friday, February 5th - Celebrating our Staff!
What better way to celebrate our staff than to have NO School for students! I encourage you to send a note to school staff members thanking them for all they do! This is an awesome group of individuals, from our maintenance and cafeteria staff, the administrative assistants, all teaching and support staff Professional Development Day for Staff
A Note from Mr. Lemen:
On Monday, February 1st, we will be having our Pancakes with Parents event to kick off Catholic Schools Week. This breakfast will take place in the cafeteria and gymnasium of Central Campus. All students who are normally dropped off by parents at East Campus are asked to be dropped off at Central Campus on this day. We are hopeful that all parents will stay for breakfast and the mass that is to follow, but understand that this event may not fit in to everyone's morning. Any students who typically ride the GJCS buses to 10th Street School can still do so, as our bus will pick them up and shuttle straight to Central Campus. All Central Campus routines will stay the same.
In an effort to keep the flow of the parking lot as safe and efficient as possible, parents are asked to enter Central Campus through the drive behind the school, off of Lechner Lane. If parents do not wish to have breakfast, they may follow the normal car line (attached) and exit back onto Lechner Lane. Those parents who wish to stay for breakfast may park in any of the parking spaces available in the main and upper parking lots.
Parents and students will be walking through the parking lot to enter the school, so please be mindful as you travel through.
