A little encouragement
Posted on May 4, 2017
One of the best things about working at Trinity is watching students grow in their gifts. We have students in the spotlight and those behind the scenes. Each one is important and each one needs encouragement. As teachers and staff members, we are amazed to see students’ hidden talents unearthed through new opportunities in academics, sports, the arts, and ministry. What a privilege it is to encourage them to reach a little higher or acknowledge a job well done!
“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (ESV)
We also appreciate the encouragement we receive from our dedicated families, supporters, and volunteers. We are truly blessed to be a part of a caring community!
Our choirs and bands entertained the crowd at the secondary Spring Concert. Thanks to the students, Mr. Lassinger, and Mr. Diamond for a delightful evening!
Throughout the winter, the English 9 and 10 students completed novels such as Frankenstein, Gulliver’s Travels, Night, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and The Time Machine as part of their “snow day” assignments.
To showcase their knowledge of the books, the 10th graders were given a choice of several creative projects to complete. These choices included everything from creating a song or poem to making a power-point, art project, or scrapbook. The 9th graders used analysis of Night, by Elie Wiesel, to create themed posters surrounding the ideas of indifference to the the Holocaust and how tragedy points others to Christ.
These projects are displayed in the high school wing. These students should be proud of the way they have combined reading, analysis, and creativity!
There were serious and light-hearted moments during the Senior Chapel for secondary students. We will surely miss the Class of 2017!
The AP Chemistry test is complete! As a reward, the class created gleaming silver-lined bottles in a chemistry lab.
The fifth-grade visited Antietam National Battlefield after studying the Civil War this year. They ended the day by having a group picture on Burnside Bridge.(They just so happen to have a teacher named Mrs. Burnside! How fun is that?)
The teachers and staff have been so encouraged by the sweet gestures of appreciation expressed by the Parent Service Organization and the families this week. We can’t thank you enough!
“Pure Imagination” was a fabulous production from beginning to end! Perfectly cast and performed with excellence, the musical delivered poignant and funny moments. Bravo to the cast, tech crew, and faculty! We especially want to recognize Mr. Nathan Boone on a great job writing and directing the drama.
