    1st Grade Students Complete and Present Animal Reports

    First grade students chose an animal of personal interest to them that they would research, before sharing information with their classmates! Using animal books in their classroom libraries, as well as their classroom ipads, students researched their animal. All students wrote an informative report. They also created a poster full of details to share during their presentations. We're proud of these students' hardwork and achievement. Check out their posters in the 1st grade hallway this week!

    Your Map to High School & College: a KHEAA Presentation for 8th Graders

    Ms. Candice Johnson of The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) joined our 8th graders today to offer the KHEAA - YOUR MAP TO HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE WORKSHOP. The workshop reminds and encourages middle school students that what they are doing TODAY does impact TOMORROW.  The workshop can also serve as a good reminder to the students to stay positive and continue to keep expectations and standards high. The workshops discuss the importance of continuing to study hard, getting good grades, and setting their sights on education after high school (and how what they continue to do right now as 8th Graders impacts the next step – a great reminder for them to stay focused on their studies).

    Students will learn the benefits of getting a higher education, explore college choices and things to look for in choosing the right college.  Students will discuss various career choices and talk about the specifics of career exploration.  We also emphasize to the students how important service work is in helping to discern possible college majors, careers choices (as well as being an obvious commitment to our call to be compassionate Catholics).  The presentation is packed full of additional information on how to earn scholarship funds to pay for post-secondary education and how to start building your resume in high school to help secure scholarships funds for college.  They will have an opportunity to ask questions at the end.  As stated, Ms. Probus has solicited the expertise of Ms. Candice Johnson from KHEAA  to present this valuable workshop.

  • Wednesday is Be A P.A.L. Day!

    We are excited for BE A P.A.L. DAY (PEACEBUILDER AT LUNCH DAY) on Wednesday. This special day takes place during Catholic Schools Week and as a PeaceBuilder School, this is an awesome opportunity for our students. The message is simple – to encourage all to practice compassion daily in all of our interactions, to be kind to everyone, to give each other a chance, that it matters how we treat each other and we are all more alike than different (all of these are contained within the PeaceBuilder Pledge in some capacity, which we commit to live daily at Holy Trinity). During lunch, students will sit by a new person, learn about others through interactive questions, and listen to live music. Be sure to check in with your student and talk to them about this great opportunity!

    Our Faculty and Staff are extremely proud of our 8th grade students and their performance on the high school placement test.  Close to 60% of our students scored in the high category(76-99) with the other 40% scoring in the average category(24-75).  We had seven of our students score in the highest category(96-99).  Our students scored significantly higher than their peers entering these local Catholic High Schools.  Using the Scale Score Model, our students scored between 63-85 points higher in every category (Reading, Math, Language, Verbal, Quantitative, etc.) than other students taking the entrance exam.  Our local high schools will provide individual results to students and families at the time of their registration.  Congratulations to our students and 8th grade parents!  We know what a bright future awaits you in high school and beyond.
