Holy Trinity Catholic School November 12th, 2020
November 13th-Virtual Day
Reminder-------Students will not have in-person school on Friday, November 13th, but teachers will post things on SeeSaw or Google Classroom for the students to work on. If you do not have good internet access at home, teachers will be sending work home for those who contacted them.
Teachers will also send home chromebooks, if needed for students.
Teachers will not be available that day.
This will still be considered a student school day. Please complete the assignments, as attendance will be taken based on work completed and submitted.
This info is valid until one week after your picture date.
We will work with School and Sports Pic to schedule a picture re-take day for those who missed or would like a retake of your picture.
COVID and the Holidays
As we approach the holiday season, it is important to reflect on how each of us will continue to protect all members of our school, parish, and local community.
The data we receive from our local health department verifies that, to date, there have not been positive cases of COVID-19 transmitted from student-to-student in our school. This is excellent news and a testament to the safety measures taken to continue our commitment to in-person instruction.
The data also tells us that cases that have caused quarantines in school have generally been traced to family members and activities that increase the risk of transmission. We ask you to prayerfully consider how you will celebrate the holidays and activities your children will participate in when they are not in school. We all need to keep our teachers, staff, and fellow students healthy for our school to remain open for face-to-face instruction five days a week.
We appreciate all you have done and will continue to do to support our work. The gratitude that we have experienced and the joy of everyone in our school each day is the greatest gift of all.

A Note from Mrs. Longden
While working on some of my course work, I was reminded of one important question that should guide our thinking as parents and teachers, "What is the purpose of education?" For many people it has simply become a career preparation program, but we want our education to be much more. Working in partnership with parents, we hope that our students will be able to think well, speak well, and write well. They should know how to tell right from wrong and practice acting in ways that are right (habits which we call virtues), because they love God. In this way, our education will form them to be good people, good citizens, and people of faith leading lives of holiness. This is what we strive to do each day at Holy Trinity, and we know that our parents are supporting this at home in your families.
Humility is the true evaluation of ourselves with all our limitations. If we’re truly humble, we’ll admit our shortcomings, but we’ll also recognize our God-given qualities and abilities. As we grow in self-knowledge and humility, we should desire to serve God and others in ways best suited for our talents.
Humility urges us to do good for others without attracting attention or expecting applause; a realistic opinion of ourselves prompts us to give credit for gifts and successes to God. The secret to winning heaven? Losing our self-love in the virtue of humility. “Whoever, therefore, shall humble himself as [a] little child will be the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:4)
