The Power of Sharing Stories

May 14th, 2020

Stories have always been an important part of what we do at Trinitas, from our work in the classroom, to our extracurricular activities, to our community events. Speech Meet, Thoughtful Reader, Reader’s Theater, reading buddies, Shakespeare field trips, Latin plays, Fine Arts Night. We are storytellers and story-sharers at Trinitas!

Stories teach us. They entertain us. They move us. They connect us. We need that connection now more than ever. While the staff continues to develop more virtual community events so that we can continue sharing stories, we encourage you to keep telling stories at home by reading books with each other, acting out plays, or writing your own stories. Grab a notebook or journal to record humorous observations (Have there always been SO many dogs in the neighborhood?) or perhaps deeper reflections (Have you been on a walk and noticed the beauty of God’s good creation in a whole new way?). These are good “stories” too that you can share with a friend through Zoom, email, or even a good old-fashioned phone call!

Our teachers miss reading to their students, but they have found a great way to keep sharing stories with them. Watch your classroom newsletter each week for a virtue story video link!
