Mrs. Sarrell’s kindergarten class witnessed the important role of our brave Pensacola fireman last week. With wide eyes and inquisitive minds, the little ones learned all about fire trucks and fire hoses. They saw the heavy protective equipment the firemen wear and heard about the courageous actions these people perform each day. They even learned a little first aid along the way! Our guests enjoyed some homemade treats prepared by the Kindergarten class and after a sunny day outside, the children marched inside wearing their new red firemen hats!
Our Kindergarten class recently learned about Fort McHenry with Mrs. Sarrell. They erected a lego and block replica of the fort and even reenacted the American victory at the Battle of Baltimore. With bombs made from toilet paper they were able to get an authentic feel for the dramatic battle scene that took place during the War of 1812. Immediately after this battle, Francis Scott Key wrote our beloved national anthem, the Star Spangled Banner. If you look closely, you can see Old Glory in the center of the table (fort).
The foot bone connected to the leg bone, the leg bone connected to the knee bone, the knee bone connected to the thigh bone, the thigh bone connected to the back bone, the back bone connected to the neck bone, the neck bone connected to the head bone; Oh hear the word of the Lord! The kindergarten class learned the shape and names of the bones in the human skeleton today with a little help from our Seniors. Cutting, pasting and hands on assembly helped the young ones enjoy learning the beauty of the human frame and some sweet time with the “big kids”.
Any winning game is preceded by lots of good preparations. Our volleyball and soccer teams have done just that these last two weeks! With a great deal of kindness and generosity on behalf of the devoted parents, each team has enjoyed a special lunch complete with delicious food and the wonderful company of their coaches. Thank you parents, coaches, and players for making this athletic season at Trinitas such a memorable time for everyone! Go Knights!
“So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good” Genesis 1:21 This week Mrs. Sarrel’s class enjoyed learning all about a special winged bird, Mr. McGee’s pet toulouse goose, Isabella. The students learned about her diet of fish and grass, her webbed feet, and also the great width of her wing span. They will meet a goat next week and perhaps even get the opportunity to milk one! Who knew learning the letter “G” could be so much fun??
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.
