Did you ever feel like you’re playing catch-up? Our school community seems to kick into warp speed at this time of year. The list of our students’ accomplishments and classroom activities is growing so rapidly, it’s hard to keep up.
When it’s this busy, sometimes we forget to pause, breathe, and soak in these moments. Good things are happening and we serve a good, good God. He’s at the center of our mission at Trinity as we strive to educate for life.
