One of the highlights of the junior/senior trip to Washington D.C. in March was the students’ visit to Congressman Jeff Miller’s Capitol Hill office. The aesthetics trip also included visits to the Lincoln Memorial, Arlington Cemetery, the White House, Supreme Court, and ice skating on the mall. The students’ favorite was the National Gallery of Art where they enjoyed seeing the various works studied in their traditio classes. Although the students raised money for their trip, they were humbly blessed by the generous anonymous donor who lightened the fundraising burden.
Trinitas student athletes received letters, pins, or medals for their participation in volleyball, soccer, and basketball during the 2011-2012 athletic season. Special recognitions were also awarded to individuals in their respective sports.
Mr. Joshua Butcher was the evening keynote speaker and presented an address to the students and their families titled “Christian Culture and Sports“. We are grateful for the perspective he provided and the challenge set before our sports program.

Trinitas Christian School is pleased to announce Alice Stout as the winner of its first annual Chrysostom Oratory Contest, a qualifying competition for the national Chrysostom Oratory Contest, a speech competition held by the ACCS (Association of Classical and Christian Schools). Miss Stout delivered her 15-minute address entitled “Rediscovering the Beauty of Leviticus 11” to an audience of students, parents, and guests on Friday, 12 March, 2011. Her speech suggested that modern Christians misinterpret the Levitical dietary code, thereby applying it inappropriately or even overlooking it altogether.
The Chrysostom Oratory Contest is a speech contest sponsored by the Association of Classical Christian Schools (ACCS). As the winner of Trinitas’ Chrysostom contest, Ms. Stout will compete with orators from other ACCS schools for a $1000 prize and the opportunity to deliver her address at the ACCS Conference in Atlanta in June.
The Chrysostom Oratory Contest takes its name from John Chrysostom, a fourth-century Christian archbishop of Constantinople whose eponym means “Golden-mouthed.” Chrysostom is known for his eloquence in preaching and public speech.
As winner of the Chrysostom contest at Trinitas, Alice stout receives the “Golden Mouth” trophy, a cash prize, points for her house, the opportunity to speak publicly at Trinitas events, and of course, a berth in the ACCS’s oratory contest.
Trinitas Christian School acknowledges and thanks Mr. and Mrs. Dixie Dan Powell for their generous sponsorship of the oratory contest and Mr. Michael Robbins for videoing and editing Trinitas’ Chrysostom contest and Alice’s speech which will be submitted to the ACCS Chrysostom Oratory Contest.
