Spread the word about Trinitas! Is your family involved in a play, musical, ballet, or anything that has a program that needs sponsors? Trinitas is one of the best-kept secrets in Grand Rapids, and we are looking for creative ways to let everyone know about our great school!
You are invited to learn more about Singapore Math model drawing this Friday, October 26, at 1:45 p.m. in the library. These models are a bridge for moving students from concrete manipulation of numbers to purely symbolic mathematical concepts. Topics will include whole numbers, decimals, fractions, ratios, and speed. It will be particularly helpful for parents of 1st through 6th graders.
The Parent Service Fellowship Committee invites you to enjoy coffee and fellowship during the half hour prior to this training session.
We look forward to welcoming our Grandparents’ Day guests next Wednesday! Thank you to all who signed up to donate supplies for our treats. All items are needed Monday morning.
One goal we have at Trinitas is for our students to be comfortable and articulate in front of an audience. The annual speech meet provides one opportunity to practice some of the skills necessary for this. We recognize that some children naturally love an audience while the mere thought of such attention fills others with anxiety. Please do your best to encourage your child so that this will be a positive experience. Practice with your child often and encourage him or her to do his or her best, but also reassure your child that we do not require perfection. Also explain that even though some students will receive special recognition, it’s possible that all of them will do an excellent job. The judges often have a tough time deciding!
WHO: All full-time Trinitas students, grades K-8, will participate in our annual speech meet; homeschool partnership students are welcome to participate. Students will be memorizing and reciting material of their choice in front of their fellows and judges; parents and siblings are invited to come and watch. Students should wear their dress uniforms.

The annual speech meet provides an opportunity for K-8 students to practice some of the skills necessary for becoming comfortable and articulate in front of an audience. Selections are due October 22. A good place to start looking for a selection is The Book of Virtues, ed. William J. Bennett. Both humorous and serious selections are welcomed as we hope to include one of each in our all-school presentation.
Are you interested in serving as a speech meet judge? Please watch for details!
