Hoops and holiday hoopla
Posted on December 13, 2012
Last Friday, students, parents, and community members converged on the TCS gym. The draw: the annual Trinity Christian School Hoop-a-thon, a fundraiser that focuses on the school community coming together to shoot hoops and hula-hoop to benefit the school. Always a fun event, this year’s fundraiser included the support of corporate sponsors, in addition to the over $25,000 in pledges made on behalf of the participants. While the final tally isn’t in, the Hoop-a-thon was a success by all accounts and was featured in a segment on WBOY.
Meanwhile students continue to diligently finish out the semester coursework, interspersed with Christmas cheer. Kindergarten students caroled at the mall, high school students held Christmas Spirit Dress Days, and the Morgantown parade featured the snowplow painted by TCS art students.
Students of all ages hit the backboards for the annual Hoop-a-thon. TCS Superintendent, Mr. Howard, showed great form, despite the disadvantage of having to wear a cast.
The completed snowplow blade, painted by Trinity art students, will “shine” as it clears the streets of Morgantown this winter.
An early Christmas present for the football team and the community, the new goalposts for the athletic field stand out against the brilliant blue of the winter sky.
