The sixth and twelfth grade classes recently celebrated the American cowboy of the late 1890’s as part of their Modern History studies. They spent the day as cowboys and cowgirls, enjoying digging and tending their campfire, riding horses, practicing lassoing skills, and “branding” name tags for their mason jars. Campfire cowboy stew was doled out by “Cookie”, along with biscuits, pie, and bottled root beer, as an authentic trail lunch for everyone to enjoy. The shooting range and quick-draw contest were highlights of their exhilarating day!

The Greek gods and goddesses of third and seventh grades recently descended upon the Trinitas halls. After presenting their stories of trial and triumph, the gods of Mount Olympus created mosaic masterpieces. The highlight of their day was Zeus’s Family Reunion where they gathered for an authentic Greek meal, feasting on roasted asparagus, dolmathes, nectar of the gods, olives and cheese, spanakopita, and baklava. Trinitas is safe, once again, from those meddling menaces until next year.

Pastor Lewis continued his Lunch and Learn series on spirituality Wednesday, January 28th during the secondary school lunch. Pastor Lewis reminded the students that “God never meant man to be [a] purely spiritual creature. That is why he uses material things like bread and wine to put new life into us…He invented eating. He likes matter. He invented it.” From there, Pastor Lewis proceeded to introduce secular humanism. Like an artist, he attempted to paint his subject in the best light possible so that his defeat of it would be more compelling. Listen to his lecture and get prepared for week three when Pastor Lewis continues his series.
As with all classes at Trinitas, the kindergarten class begins their day with reading the Proverb of the day. This corresponds to the day of the month. On the 2nd of February, Mrs. Sarrell, the kindergarten teacher, prepared an exercise to help illustrate. Proverbs 2:3-5 states, “Yes, if you cry out for discernment, And lift up your voice for understanding, If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the Lord.” Visitors viewing the kindergarten class caught the children searching for hidden silver (in the form of dimes) throughout the class. Mrs. Sarrell followed with the reading and explanation. We are a blessed family.
The infamous Miss Viola Swamp from Harry Allard’s book Miss Nelson is Missing visited Mrs. Worshek’s first grade class today at Trinitas. Although our students had been on their best behavior, unlike the students in Miss Nelson’s class, Miss Swamp took the class by surprise with her yard stick tapping, extra homework, lack of story time, and demands to sit perfectly still. The students were so happy when Mrs. Worshek was found at snack time and Miss Swamp miraculously disappeared. Our first grade classes always love reading this book!
