Not so ordinary
Posted on January 12, 2017
Is there really such a thing as an ordinary day? Here at Trinity, we are starting a new grading period so the calendar is a bit sparse this week. The days are a little quiet – ordinary, you might say.
But, don’t let that fool you. Once you step inside our classrooms, it’s exciting to see the ongoing creativity of our teachers and students. Tackling new material, stretching skills, and increasing knowledge through projects and disciplines is an everyday occurrence. That is anything but ordinary.
The eleventh-grade Honors History students are working in groups to create board games with trivia for a current class project.
The fifth-grade class uses a circle-time format in their study of the Bible to foster a family atmosphere.
