REMINDER – Donuts with Dad and Chapel Speaker

September 18th, 2018 by Trinitas Classical

We hope to see you tomorrow at 7:30 a.m. Please use the main school entrance, so students can drop off their backpacks and belongings before heading to Chapel Hall.

Glazed donuts and fruit will be provided. If your child has a food allergy or sensitivity, please send an alternate treat to enjoy during this time.

If you are able, please stay to hear our first special chapel speaker of the year, Pastor Michael Wentzel from St. Mark Lutheran Church. He will be speaking about honesty, our virtue for the month of September.

Reminders for the First Day – Tuesday, September 4

September 1st, 2018 by Trinitas Classical

All students should wear the PE uniform on the first day. If you ordered a PE shirt, they will be available in the classrooms on Tuesday morning. Teachers will give their students the opportunity to change.

All homeschool partners are invited to join us on our first day of school from 11:40-3:00 for recess, lunch, and special activities for all students. Homeschool partners who do not participate in PE may wear attire that is as close as possible to our PE dress code.

Even though it is a Tuesday, kindergartners will attend all of the first day.

Special First Day Events for Students!

July 24th, 2018 by Peter Marth

Once again, students will be welcomed back to school with a modified schedule on the first day. School will start at the normal time, but Morning Prayer will be delayed in order to give parents, students, and teachers a more gentle transition on the first day. The afternoon will feature activities for individual classrooms and the school as a whole. (It’s almost like having Field Day at the beginning of the year!)

On National Handwriting Day: A Case for Cursive

January 23rd, 2018 by Peter Marth

A Classical Approach to Handwriting

by Anne Poortenga, Ph.D.

With interactions, both business and social, becoming increasingly digitized, what’s the point of spending valuable class time instruction on the apparently unnecessary skill of handwriting? With the Common Core Standards adopted by most states mandating manuscript instruction only until the first grade and not requiring cursive instruction at all, proponents of handwriting instruction would seem to have a tough case to make. Pointing to practical reasons, backed by scientific studies, many public and private schools continue to provide handwriting instruction even into middle school. Classical schools enjoy these practical benefits of handwriting instruction, but also situate handwriting within the bigger picture of what it means to be well-educated.   Read the rest of this entry »
