Thank you to all of our Holy Trinity families that donated items to Student Council to use for their Uniform Sale Fundraiser, as well as those families who shopped! Student Council raised $660 at the May and July sales! This money will help fund our Derby Day activities: Obstacle Course, 2 Bouncers, Snow Cones for all students and teachers, and music. Based on fundraising for the year, we can also add activities that we've had in the past, such as popcorn or bubbles.
If your family sold items at the July sale, you can pick up your money at the school office during office hours the last week of July or first week of August. Thank you for participating!
Finally, we will have one more sale during Meet Your Teacher on August 10. After this sale, all items will be donated to Catholic Charities. If you still have items you'd like to donate, please take them directly to Catholic Charities at this point in the summer. Thank you for your support of this local outreach uniform effort!
Greetings! I hope everyone is having a fun, safe, and relaxing summer. I want to extend a warm welcome to all of our new students/families. We know that your experience here at Holy Trinity Parish School will be rewarding.

We are proud to announce that this year's Terra Nova results have qualified Holy Trinity Parish School to apply once again for the National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence distinction. These scores reflect the hard work of not only the students but parents and teachers as well. Great job, Holy Trinity Community!
Below are our scores (Scale Scores), as well as the national Blue Ribbon score requirement minimums.
Students in 1st-6th grade participate in Field Day each year during the last week of school. On this day, students compete against each other in individual races, but then also work together as a team to complete tasks in other activities. At the end of the day, the St. Matthew's Fire Department brings a fire truck (or two sometimes) to shower the students with water! This year, the fire truck experience was cut short by incoming storms and severe weather, but the students still had fun while the firemen were here! Thanks to all of our parent and teacher volunteers, including St. Matthew's Fire District, who made the day a success, as well as Ms. Pullem, our PE teacher, for organizing the day!
1st Grades Complete Fraction Unit with Trip to Mr. Gatti's
The first grade has been learning a lot about fractions the last couple of weeks and was able to celebrate completion of their math unit with a field trip to Gattland! First graders participated in an exciting fractions class where they had hands on learning with pizza dough. The students really enjoyed being able to make their own pizzas!
Recently, our 8th grade class completed their graduation day of activities! First, we celebrated Mass as a school, before hosting our 8th Grade Awards, Clap-Out, Video, and Brunch. Graduation was held in the evening for extended families and guests, too!

2nd Graders Learn Native American Dances and Songs from Cherokee Member, Susan Mullins
Over the past few weeks, the second graders have been learning about America's past. They spent a lot of time studying Native Americans. In each class, students broke up into groups to complete a Native American group project. Each group was assigned a specific Native American tribe. The students had to read about their Native American group to find out what their homes looked like, what kinds of food they ate, and how they traveled. At the end of the unit, the second graders participated in a Native American program led by Cherokee member, Susan Mullins. During the program, Mrs. Mullins told students about her history, taught them tribal songs and dances, showed them artifacts and clothing, and even let them play her drum! Spending the day with Mrs. Mullins was the perfect way to wrap up the unit!
