Students Celebrate Christmas with Nativity Productions
This week our 1st, 5th, and 8th grade students came together for a production of the Nativity. 1st and 5th grade students used songs from their grade-level Christmas and Nativity productions to add to 8th grade's production of the Nativity. 8th graders also performed Silent Night in Spanish. Merry Christmas!
Each year, our 1st graders wear their pajamas to school and receive the first gift of Christmas- the bell from Polar Express. The students can be heard in their classrooms and traveling throughout the building as they share how we all must still believe and listen for jingle bells! All of their lessons from the day focus on Polar Express and this year students journaled about what they wish the first gift of Christmas will be this year. Students truly enjoy the tradition and we thank the 1st grade teachers for organizing and hosting all of the activities. Merry Christmas, from the 1st Grade!
In centers, 3rd grade students are using QR codes which were randomly placed around the classroom during math. The activity was designed to include movement and technology in a fun, interactive way. The students worked in small groups to complete review problems displayed on their ipad after scanning each code. The students had a great deal of fun with this lesson while also using technology and movement to practice math skills! Great job Ms. Ledene in planning the lesson!
7th grade students are creating dream homes in math class. Through their Geometry chapter, students have been studying area and perimeter of 2 dimensional shapes. Students created floor plans to design the layout of their dream home, calculated the area and perimeter of each room, and found the cost of flooring options for each room using the square footage. They were the architects this week! Great job 7th Grade students and thank you Ms. Geary for leading such a wonderful lesson!
Each week, Father Mark makes his way through all of our classrooms- visiting students and teachers while checking in on our learning. Sometimes, he shares a message about Mass that week, plays a game with the students, or teaches a new lesson. Recently, he worked with our 3rd graders on their addresses. Merry Christmas Father Mark- Thanks for all you do for each one of us at Holy Trinity!
Jennifer Huber joined Holy Trinity's staff on Monday. She has spent the past 8 years working in the IT department for a large law firm in downtown Louisville. We are excited about her joining our community because it will allow us to continue to take care of technology needs in our parish and school, while also greatly improving the response time to everyday issues in our classrooms and offices. Please join us in giving a kind Eagle Welcome to Jennifer!
4th Grade Studies Christmas Traditions Around the World
Fourth grade is learning how other cultures around the world celebrate Christmas. They are researching, making ornaments, and sharing foods! While they've explored and shared traditions of about 25 different countries, some of the specific countries they've learned about are Germany, Mexico, Holland, Guatemala, France, and England. How do you celebrate the birth of Christ?
Our Kentucky Youth Assembly Delegation, made up of fifteen 8th graders, received and earned a Delegation of Excellence award at their conference! Evan Johnston received an Outstanding Delegate award, while Alexander Bascom and Harper Grove were awarded Outstanding Speaker Awards (only 15 Speakers Awards are given from the 1,300 students present). Being one of the most highly rated Bills the first night and having the privilege to present at the Capitol is a true honor and one the students are truly proud of! Congratulations Students!
Our 5th Grade Students will perform their annual Christmas Holiday Concert on Wednesday, December 10 at 7 p.m. in the Cafeteria Commons area for parents and family members, as well as again Thursday, December 11 at 8:15 a.m. for the school students in Pre-K through 4th grade. Family and guests are invited to both performances. Merry Christmas!
They've previously presented their concert to those who live at the Masonic Home, their 5th grade mission. The students performed last week, visited with guests, and shared holiday treats. Thank you 5th graders for your continued service to these great members of our community!
Appalachia, through the Eyes of an 8th Grade Student
I guess I didn’t know what I was expecting when I signed up to go on a mission trip to Appalachia with Hand In Hand Ministries. I remember not even being sure if I wanted to go. After all, the responsibilities I currently deal with seem stressful enough, without three days worth of make-up work to do. Something kept nagging at the back of my mind, though, and I couldn’t bring myself to pass up the opportunity.
It was the best decision of my life. (Click Link to Read More, Please.)
