With equal doses of fact and humor, you are sure to enjoy this evening of student recitations and drama. Please join us at East Brent Baptist Church Friday, January 23rd at 6:00pm.

Trinitas houses Augustine, George, Polycarp, and Valerian visited the University Pines and Sterling House retirement homes Friday, December 12th. Our young ladies and gentlemen shared their talents with residents singing several Christmas selections. Students, parents, and Trinitas staff enjoyed meeting with the residents after the caroling. We are so thankful for the leadership of Miss Brittany Hartke, our house advisor, who plans these activities in which our students can share God’s goodness with others.
Our parents, grandparents, and friends were blessed by the beautiful singing from the Trinitas 4th – 12th grade classes Friday, December 5th. Under the direction of Mr. Ed Varela, three choirs sang, four handbell classes played, and several students performed piano selections. The evening was magical with decorations created by a team of parents and students lead by Mrs. AJ Traylor. The winter wonderland was the perfect setting for “Sleigh Bells”, “In the Bleak Midwinter”, and “Carol of the Bells”. If you weren’t able to join us for this beautiful event, plan to attend our Evening of Theater and Recitation on Friday, January 23rd at East Brent Baptist Church.
From the Cat Country facebook page, “Congratulations to Varsity Boys Soccer Coach Phil Smith of Trinitas Christian School, our Cat Pak Coach of the week!”
We are thankful for the leadership Coach Smith shows both on and off the soccer field. Trinitas administrator Mr. Ken Trotter said, “When selecting coaches, one always looks for a man or woman who possesses the skills required for the sport along with the ability to teach and train the athletes placed under his leadership. It is an added blessing to have a coach who is as interested in growing young men or women in Christian character as they are in teaching the sport. Coach Smith built a team that contended for the Panhandle Christian Conference Championship in a year that was considered one for rebuilding; all the while, having a greater impact on the social and spiritual development of his players. We are grateful.”
Perhaps your last Thanksgiving meal consisted of turkey and stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and other delectable goodies? Not so for the residents of Plymouth Plantation who celebrated their first Thanksgiving feast in 1621. Trinitas fifth graders recently commemorated that Plymouth Plantation Thanksgiving by sampling authentic Pilgrim fare such as wild duck, corn pudding, venison, pumpkin pudding, mussels, and clams. Sorry, Mom—no turkey or pumpkin pie!
As the sixth grade studies the modern period of history, they begin in the 1800’s and the westward expansion of the United States of America, which is cemented in their memories by the Conestoga Wagon project. The hammering, sewing, drilling, and painting are all small-scale reminders of the great sacrifices made by the early western settlers, or “emigrants.” The resulting mini covered wagons, or “camels of the prairie,” are fun reminders of our sixth grade year.
