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!

The Trinitas ninth grade class, under the direction of Mr. Sean Johnson, recently read Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s The Social Contract. This well-known work inspired political reform across France and Europe in general in the mid 17th century. The students submitted their favorite quotes:
“Nations, like men, are teachable only in their youth; with age they become incorrigible. Once customs are established and prejudices rooted, reform is a dangerous and fruitless enterprise; a people cannot bear to see its evils touched, even if only to be eradicated; it is like a stupid, pusillanimous invalid who trembles at the sight of a physician.”
Our Logic and Rhetoric students are having “Lunch and Learn” each Wednesday for the next eight weeks with Pastor Dennis Lewis as he shares a study on Biblical Spirituality. He is encouraging our students to cultivate a spiritual life, focusing all attention on communing with the Father. Listen to this week’s installment of the series here.
Thanks to a generous parent donor, our Rhetoric School will attend John Maxwell live, Leading into 2015 in Pensacola Monday, January 26th. Students are excited to hear the testimony and exhortation of Nick Vujicic from Life Without Limbs. Nick was born in Australia without arms and legs. According to his website, Nick has traveled extensively throughout 54 countries sharing his story and God’s purpose for Nick’s life, to lead others to Christ. It is an honor for our students to share in this rich experience.
The Trinitas Knights gathered in the Grand Hall for student led cheering, fight songs, and battle cries Friday, January 9th for our second pep rally of the school year. Coach Dunham introduced the JV and Varsity Basketball Teams who would play Lighthouse Christian School the following day. Coach Traylor introduced the running team in preparation for the Pensacola Beach 5K run, also that Saturday. As part of the celebration, the senior soccer players hung the banner in recognition of the Western Division Championship of the Panhandle Christian Conference won in the fall. Sir Wins-A-Lot led the parents, staff, and students in “the wave” and house St. Augustine yelled the loudest in the cheering competition. All enjoyed the excitement and camaraderie.
