St. Joseph’s Day 2021

This year, as a school community, we celebrated St. Joseph’s day in a big way! Many Holy Trinity families shared their own personal traditions and celebrations for the day. We also had a school wide altar for St. Joseph in the upper school lobby and collected bread to donate to Martha’s table. Classes each celebrated in their own special way and Fr. Gillespie spoke to some classes about the holiday. Finally, teachers from each grade awarded a “St. Joseph’s Award” to a student who displays courage, faith, fairness, compassion and humility. It was a great opportunity for us to come together as a school, learn more about St. Joseph, experience traditions from around the world, and celebrate classmates who inspire us all!

Below you will find pictures of our celebrations, along with a presentation about St. Joseph’s day, put together by Ms. Moore.

Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday, and Lenten Service

Last month, Holy Trinity staff, students, and families celebrated Mardi Gras and Ash Wednesday, pandemic style. On Tuesday, students made masks and learned about the celebrations of Mardi Gras and Carnival. On Wednesday, students and staff on campus watched a prayer service and received ashes sprinkled on their heads, rather than pressed on their foreheads. Students who learn virtually were also invited, with their families, to a drive through distribution of ashes. Everyone was very thankful for the ways that the Holy Trinity community has found to celebrate and honor our faith, in a safe way.

The second grade also kicked off their annual school wide Lenten Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl collection. They have reminded us that even in a time of our own need, there is always an opportunity to serve others. Our donations will help to create sustainable food and income sources, like home gardens and chicken coops, for families around the world. You can learn more about the CRS rice bowl collection here 

Catholic Schools Week 2021 Recap

Below you will find some highlights of this year’s Catholic Schools Week. This year, more than ever, we focused on how to serve others, our appreciation for Catholic education and our love for the Holy Trinity community. The week started with a much needed snow day, which parents, students, and teachers all appreciated! On community service day we supported the Jesuit Refugee Service with a TAG day, sign making, and a virtual visit from JRS staff. As the week continued, students and teachers showed their gratitude for parents by doing chores around the house and hosting a liturgy. Parents arranged for breakfast and lunch to show their appreciation for HTS teachers and staff. The week ended with academic day and a house pride free dress day. It was a great week, full of fun celebrations. We look forward to fostering an enthusiasm for Catholic education, all year long!

Juana and Day House Days

So far this year we have celebrated Juana House Day and Day House Day. Teachers and students have gotten creative about how to celebrate house days both from school and home. These fun days have reminded us all that even though things may be different this year, there is still so much to celebrate! Here are some pictures of those special days. We are looking forward to celebrating all of our houses and their members this year!
