Mr. Allen’s fourth grade class created some chocolate culinary deliciousness this week to celebrate the annual “Chocolate Day” here at Trinitas. After reading Ronald Dahl’s 1964 version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, they were inspired to make everything from hair toffee to square candies that look round to Wonka’s Wipple Scrumptious Fudge Delight. The students took a ride in the pink candy boat (around the grand hall) and had a quick run through the chocolate factory with Wonka! It was a huge success and there was no shortage of treats for all to enjoy!
Hundreds of fans came out Friday night to cheer on the Knights as they battled a chief rival, Aletheia. The lady Knights were victorious in volleyball, winning both the JV and Varsity games! However, the soccer team did not come home with a win, but fought extremely hard against an excellent Aletheia team. The final score was 5 to 2. They are looking forward to another opportunity to play them in the Regional tournament next month. With TCBY yogurt and Dominos pizza for sale, there was a popular selection for almost any palate. Plan to join us again on September 29th at 6 PM as we play Central Christian School and enjoy more tailgate fun at Ashton Brosnaham. We will be serving grilled burgers and hot dogs! The shouts from the crowd are heard loud and clear by the athletes and they appreciate the support of the fans! Go Knights!!
With a powerful charge from Mr. Gilley and a scripture reading from Mr. Hughes, the students at Trinitas began the new school year pledging to follow and hold one another accountable to the Trinitas Honor Code at our Convocation Ceremony Tuesday. The 2018 Senior class also received their class rings. Mr. Cowart laid out the new and exciting changes for the house system and new students were welcomed into House Valerian and House Polycarp. The students are looking forward to growing together as individual houses and dining in their “chambers” each Wednesday where they will discuss plans for volunteering and other house activities. Welcome back Knights! May our second decade of the Trinitas house system be better than ever before.
Last week students returned to these beloved halls of learning to meet the teachers, bring supplies, and get prepared for a new school year. The logic and rhetoric students will be changing classes more often this year so the students also learned where to be and when. Orientation for parents took place in the evening and all are geared up and ready for a great year! Welcome back and may God continue to bless us here at Trinitas with fruitful labors and more young soldiers for Christ.
Procurement for the auction is in full swing here at school, so if the phone rings at your business, it may just be a Trinitas student calling. They will be quick to remind you of our upcoming Gala and Auction on October 20th and Golf Tournament March 3rd & 4th. Several students have been making phone calls over the last few weeks, following up with businesses in our local community who received an informational letter from Trinitas. This is a great opportunity for our students to use the training they are receiving here at school, learning to be great communicators. And a little competition never hurt either – the students are all vying for the most donations procured. Clark Dunham is in the lead with six! Great job students and may all of your hard work result in great returns for the school. Certainly, it would be much more difficult for Trinitas to fulfill our mission and vision without the support of our community. We appreciate you all.
It’s volleyball camp week at Trinitas! Ladies of all ages have been brushing up on the their volleyball skills and talents. With the help of the varsity squad, the campers are learning some basic fundamentals of the game and having lots of fun too! The first volleyball game is slated for mid August so preparation is in full swing. Go Lady Knights!
Mrs. Phillips 3rd grade class explored the Pensacola Lighthouse Museum last week and even braved the 177 steps to the top! After witnessing the amazing view of the Pensacola Pass, they enjoyed touring the museum filled with exhibits of local history pieces and information. They ate lunch on the beach in the sunshine to wrap up the festive day.
As teacher appreciation season draws to a close, we would like to thank all parents and friends for their help in making our teachers and staff feel appreciated and special. The creative art projects given to each teacher, the delicious “take-home” meals and also the chocolate and cheese day were all highlights of the month. Mrs. Phillips was especially touched by the “goat bag” that was created for her. The children drew images of her favorite animal and inscribed, “Don’t worry, I goat this!” It is a blessing to have such generous families and devoted teachers. We are tremendously grateful!
The Drama Club presented Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream last weekend with tremendous success and fan fare. With Friday night sold out and over 230 in attendance, the students were in rare form and delivered a wonderful performance! As the love affair between Demetrius, Hermia, Helena and Lysander unfolded, the laughs and twists were everywhere. Saturday was also well attended and patrons enjoyed their fairy kiss treats and scones during intermission. The Drama Club would like to thank Miss Brittany Hartke for her tireless leadership and efforts, Miss Charity Robson for her expertise and creativity directing the fairies, and Mrs. Miranda Varela for creating the amazing set which helped to convey an authentic looking garden scene and for directing the Athenians. It was a large “team effort” with excellent results! Well done Trinitas!
The 3rd and 7th grades enjoyed exploring caves and discovering dark treasures underground at the Marianna Caverns on May 4th. They traveled to Marianna, Florida to experience the beauty of this geological marvel. The students were able to implement their studies in science as they learned about various rocks and rock formations at this amazing state park. After adventures in hiking, watching for bats, and finding salamanders in the cave, the students relaxed with a picnic on the grounds.
