The school year is building to a crescendo, as a glance at the Trinity calendar will show. It’s easy to be caught up in the momentum of activity and miss one important thing: each event that fills the month is planned with purpose and meaning. Each event is designed to contribute to the growth of our students academically, physically, socially, emotionally, or spiritually.
“Don’t take what we have for granted,” is a recurring theme with student testimonials this year. We’ve been given the precious gift of sowing into the lives of the students at Trinity Christian School. Each chapel or performance, field-trip or fair represents one more opportunity for our students to develop as they transition to the next chapter of their lives. As educators, we never want to take that for granted.
Secondary Spiritual Emphasis Days were held on April 29 and 30. Special speakers and panels consisting of alumni, parents, faculty, and guests, joined the school community in being “Challenged” in our relationships with Christ. Equally meaningful and fun activities are planned for the Elementary Spiritual Emphasis Day on May 1.
Mr. Howard was surprised by the entire student body and staff with a celebration of his birthday. The students presented him with personal notes and cards they created.
Tonight is the debut of Into the Woods, Jr.! Seats are still available for all dates: April 30 (tonight), May 1, and May 2. But, seating is limited. Please make your reservation by calling the school office, 304-291-4659. Shows start at 7:00pm and tickets are $5.00, with payment taken at the door.
The beauty of the evening for the Trinity formal was rivaled only by the stunning appearance of our students. The high school girls and guys enjoyed a night of dinner and dancing at the WVU Erickson Alumni Center.
The ladies were represented by (alphabetically) Jaclyn Alderman, Hope Donham, Emily Evans, and Olivia Kelley on the formal court while Josh Earl, Jack Goellner, Jordan Moran, and Tyler McLaughlin were the gentlemen selected. Olivia Kelley and Jack Goellner were chosen as Queen and King. Congratulations to all!
As a culmination of their year-long study of West Virginia history, eighth-grade students are traveling throughout the state intermittently these two weeks. The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, Prickett’s Fort, and the Moundsville Penitentiary were among the stops thus far.
Band members had back-to-back performances. In the above picture, they were preparing for the Regional Band Festival, followed by a trip to the West Virginia ACSI Academic Day.
Students from Trinity joined their peers from other Christian schools throughout West Virginia for Academic Day. Participants presented or performed in the following categories: Art, Math, Music, Science, and Speech. Our band and choirs received Superior ratings. A complete list of students and their awards will be published soon.
The Trinity Praise team also traveled to Academic Day and received a Superior rating.
