Helpful Hints for the Transition to 5th and 7th Grades

April 18th, 2019 by Trinitas Classical

Parents of current 4th and 6th graders, we encourage you to attend a special meeting with Mr. Marth on Friday, May 3, at 2:00 p.m. You will hear about ways to help your child prepare for the move into 5th or 7th grade. In the past, we have covered this information in the fall, but we want to share the things you can do even now as you look ahead to next year. The 5th-8th grades at Trinitas have developed over the years, including changes to the schedule, and we want your family to know where we have been and where we are going.


Shop Our Uniform Closet!

April 18th, 2019 by Trinitas Classical

Have growth spurts shrunk your student’s Trinitas wardrobe? We’ve spruced up our uniform closet. Come check it out! We have a large selection of khaki pants (boys’ and girls’), shorts (warmer weather is coming), and short sleeve polos (including spring-y colors like light blue and yellow). We even have a few dress uniform pieces and shoes. Everything is in very good condition, and $2 per item makes replacing those outgrown items easy!


April Virtue Focus – Courage

April 18th, 2019 by Trinitas Classical

Throughout April, we continue to focus on the virtue of COURAGE. We were happy to welcome Tim Anderson from West Cannon Baptist Church as our guest speaker on Wednesday. Pastor Tim reminded us that courage comes from God, and he gave an engaging account of the amazing story of Gideon and the power of the Holy Spirit. (Ask your child how many men fought for the Israelites and what weapons they used.) May we all “be bold in the LORD.”

As your family continues to discuss perseverance, here are the recommended readings* and “Try This” ideas.

Grades K-4:
How the Little Kite Learned to Fly (446)
Jack and the Beanstalk (450)
Hansel and Gretel (453)
The Brave Mice (457)

Grades 5-8:
Intro to Courage (441)
Chanticleer and Partlet (458)
Our Heroes (461)
Ulysses and the Cyclops (467)

*Readings can be found in The Book of Virtues, ed. William J. Bennett. Copies can be found on Amazon Smile.

For Parents of Students Entering 5th or 7th Grade

April 11th, 2019 by Trinitas Classical

The transition to a new routine in a new classroom is significant for both students and parents. On Friday, May 3, from 2:00 p.m. until dismissal, parents of current 4th and 6th graders are invited to join Mr. Marth in a conversation about what those classroom transitions involve and how the school seeks to help families in the process.
