Uniform Shorts and First Day of Spring

March 14th, 2019 by Trinitas Classical

Beginning Wednesday, March 20, (the first day of spring), students may wear uniform shorts, though they need to keep in mind that they must be comfortable during extended outdoor exposure (e.g., recess, fire drills, science outings). Leggings may be worn under skirts and jumpers if daytime highs are below 60 degrees.

Missing a boot, a glove, or a jacket? Please encourage your children to take a look at the lost and found items in the office. The shelves are full!

March Virtue of the Month – Perseverance

March 14th, 2019 by Trinitas Classical

We continue to focus on PERSEVERANCE through the rest of March. As we get closer to spring break, it may be good to remind students in the words of Plato, to “bear-up under labor for the sake of what is honorable.” Look for our virtue home connection sheet in your child’s backpack this weekend.

Fine Arts Night – Friday, May 10

March 14th, 2019 by Trinitas Classical

Please circle May 10 on your calendars and tell your friends and family about Fine Arts Night! It’s not too early for students to think about what they would like to do (e.g., recitation, vocal, instrumental, dance, drama, visual art, original poetry, etc.). Our 5th-8th small ensemble is already preparing something special for that evening. Watch for details and an intent form that will soon go home with students.

Between the Cones: Avoid Gridlock and Stay Safe!

March 7th, 2019 by Trinitas Classical

You may have noticed new cones and signs in the drop-off/pick-up line. To expedite the process, we have more clearly marked three loading/unloading zones. Drive between the cones! If a loading/unloading spot is open in front of you, please move into that spot. Do not unload unless you are in one of those dedicated spots. We do not want students walking through any part of the lot where they may encounter moving vehicles. Kindergarten families may park in the spots by the office and classroom windows and use the sidewalk, if they prefer.

We will be sending name cards home today. Please attach yours to the passenger-side visor and pull the visor down at pick-up so the name is visible through the passenger-side window. If your child is running a bit late and not ready for pick-up by the time you arrive, we will ask you to pull ahead to a waiting zone so the line can keep moving. As always, please drive slowly and watch for little ones (big ones too!) as you move through the parking lot.
