A message from Mrs. Cuevas:

October was a blast, but November will be remarkable!

Our days will be filled with learning fun, so please make sure to check your child’s bookbag each night and keep our school calendar handy. We appreciate all of the parent volunteers that have helped us this school year and look forward to having more parents on campus each day. I am so grateful for the amazing support of our PTO. If you have not had the chance to volunteer, don't stress. There are many more opportunities coming.


As we move into the holiday season, we want to encourage all of our families to ensure Jesus is at the center of our thoughts, prayers and actions. The holidays bring food drives, Living Rosary, Adoration, Advent, Cookies with Santa and many other opportunities for parents to get involved in our school. We look forward to seeing you.


We have updated a few things on our calendar, so please make sure you refer to the November Parent Newsletter for the most accurate updates!

A Message From Mr. Chris:

For Catholics, November is the month of the Holy Souls in Purgatory.

The Catechism teaches: “All who die in God’s grace and friendship but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death, they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven” (CCC 1030).

We want to encourage you to PRAY FOR THE SOULS IN PURGATORY this month

One suggestion would be to pray the ST. GERTRUDE'S PRAYER daily.


“Eternal Father, I offer You the most precious blood of thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, for those in my own home and in my family. Amen.”

A Message From Mrs. Jordyn:

Counselor's Corner

Gratitude is the quality or feeling of being grateful or thankful. Being able to recognize and appreciate the good things in your life can lead to increased happiness and life satisfaction. For children especially, learning how to be thankful can help in the development of interpersonal skills, including the ‘big’ one – empathy. Gratitude lends itself to expanding our worldview. When we are thankful for even the small things, we are thinking of more than just ourselves; we are thinking about how all of us have the ability to positively impact another’s life. Gratitude is powerful!​ Below are a few ways you can practice the virtue of Gratitude with your family.


  • After everyone says Grace and prayers of thanksgiving at dinner, share one thing you are grateful for from the day. You could also have a themed night such as Thankful Thursdays where everyone shares what they are thankful for.
  • Think about a time that someone has been especially kind to you and was not properly thanked. Write a short note to that person to express your thankfulness for their kindness. Think how great that will make the recipient feel!
  • During a walk or drive, have your family members point out things they are grateful for. You can even make this into an "I Spy" game.
  • When sibling rivalry or other conflicts arise in the family, have each person share aloud 3 things they are grateful for about the other person.
  • Talk about a character from a movie or book that experiences hardships but is also grateful for things. Try to name additional things the character could be grateful for.



I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Week! "Let the Peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful." ~Apostle Paul to the Colossians

Holy Trinity Catholic Elementary School Song


Chorus

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.

Repeat Chorus

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.

Repeat Chorus
