More like a family
Posted on June 12, 2014
“We’re more like a family.”
Those are the words that rising freshman Frankie Kerekes used to describe the relationship he shared with his fellow classmates during his speech for the 8th grade promotion ceremony.
Family was a recurring theme at the various end-of-year events, from the sports banquet to graduation. Like a family, we support one another in good times and in difficult times. As part of the greater family of God, we recognize that we need each other.
Even as the summer break begins, we are celebrating our students’ accomplishments.
This month Trinity students Elizabeth Satterfield, Sophie Kenney, Hannah Wagner, and Hannah Keyser attended the HOBY (Hugh O’Brian Youth) Leadership Seminar for high school sophomores. Meanwhile, juniors Dominic Raymond, Jack Goellner, Daniel Dawley, and Pierce Griffith were chosen to attend the Mountaineer Boys State.
In addition, Jack Goellner was named as a finalist for the WV Scholar scholarship program. Through the program, he is eligible for a full scholarship from West Virginia Wesleyan College. Voting remains open until tomorrow, June 13, 2014, so please support Jack by voting and confirming your vote.
By the looks on their faces, eighth grade students are ready to make the move to high school!
Our fifth graders enjoyed celebrating their promotion to middle school with family and friends.
Elementary students took turns attempting to dunk Superintendent Mr. Ken Howard, an event they looked forward to all year after it was postponed during the Fall auction. Needless to say, a wet Mr. Howard made for a fun day for the kids!
Members of the Trinity family made arrangements for hospitalized senior Alex Isabell to “attend” his graduation via live stream.
Rising senior Pierce Griffith was named the Voice of Trinity. He will deliver the morning announcements for the 2014-15 school year.
