5th/6th Grade Staff Changes

August 22nd, 2019 by Trinitas Classical

If you have a 5th or 6th grader, you may have noticed that we don’t one specific teacher for the 5th/6th classroom subjects this year. Instead, we have adapted a middle school model with the following teachers all contributing to the 5th/6th school day:

Mr. Fynewever-Muyskens – math and science (and PE)
Mr. Marth – grammar, history, and logic
Mrs. Reif – Bible and handwriting (and music)
Mrs. Richards – literature and composition
Mrs. Tellinghuisen – Latin

Mr. Marth will serve as the “home room” teacher for 5th/6th. Mr. Fynewever-Muyskens will be the point of contact for the 7th/8th class.

New Administrative Position

August 22nd, 2019 by Trinitas Classical

We are pleased to announce that Trinitas now has a new administrative position: Dean of Students. This role was designed to provide support as Mr. Marth’s schedule this year includes additional classroom hours. We seek to facilitate communication and help students, staff, and families in a variety of ways that further our vision of preparing students for lives-well lived. Marcy Benedict and Anne Poortenga will be sharing this role in an interim and volunteer capacity for 2019-2020.

Mrs. Benedict has served in a variety of roles in a classical school setting: teacher, admissions director, headmistress, and board member. Mrs. Poortenga was one of our school’s co-founders and has remained actively involved in the life of the school over the past 14 years. Both share a deep commitment to Christian classical education and a desire to help our community embrace lives of truth, goodness, and beauty.

Open House and Picnic – August 20, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

August 19th, 2019 by Trinitas Classical

Come see the classrooms, drop off school supplies, visit with the teachers, and stay for fellowship and fun! Bring your dinner and a blanket for a picnic on the lawn near the playground. If you would like to drop off your school supplies that evening, please do so between 6:00 and 6:30. The classrooms will close at 6:30 so teachers can enjoy the picnic.

The entire family is invited, and you are free to come and go as needed. We hope to see you there! If your family is not able to attend, students may bring supplies on the first day of school.

First Day of School – Tuesday, September 3

August 18th, 2019 by Trinitas Classical

All students should wear their PE uniforms the whole day as there will be games and activities in the afternoon. PE shirts may be ordered through August 16 from this online store.

All homeschool partners are invited to join us on the first day of school from 11:40 a.m. until dismissal for recess, lunch, and the afternoon activities. Homeschool partners not participating in PE may wear attire that is as close as possible to our PE dress code.

Tune into BaseCamp Live

August 8th, 2019 by Trinitas Classical

In a world with no shortage of resources on education, parenting, and digital-age survival, where do you turn for help and information? Please consider BaseCamp Live, a podcast devoted to issues in classical Christian education. BaseCamp Live seeks to empower parents, teachers, and everyone who works with young people to meet this great challenge, namely “how to shape young people who will encounter a culture that is often working against them and equip them to become flourishing adults who love Jesus Christ, think with confidence, believe with courage and serve with compassion.” (from BaseCamp Live, “About the Show“)

We look forward to pursuing these conversations as a community throughout the school year. Wondering where to start? Concerned about digital tech usage, safety, and privacy?
