It was a smooth transition back to school for students at Trinity Academy.
Students, faculty and parents gathered together the morning of Sept. 4 for a prayer service to celebrate the beginning of the school year. New students were welcomed and old friends reconnected after the summer break.
New to Trinity Academy this year is an official school mascot! The Saint Bernard mascot welcomed students into school the first week and will be often seen on the sidelines at games this year cheering on the Trinity Saints.
Trinity Academy will also launch this year "Trinity Tablet," a literary magazine. The Trinity Tablet will be produced by students in grades 5-8 with submissions from all grades.
The Trinity Academy community also received facility updates to the campus during the summer break, and students saw new iPads, apps and accessories at the start of the new school year.
"Trinity Academy's academic and spiritual life has begun again with Christ's teachings as central to the pursuit of academic excellence,” said Father Anthony Randazzo of Notre Dame Parish.
In addition to a rigorous academic program, students also will have many opportunities for after school enrichment this year. Courses being offered this fall include swimming, a running club, and a class to help eighth graders prepare for the Cooperative Admission Examination Program, which is required for all students seeking enrollment in a Catholic high school.
Soccer season is in full swing at Trinity Academy, with girls and boys teams participating in the WEYSA League.
The Trinity Academy community is also busy preparing for Open House, which will take place Oct. 20-27 and Nov. 6, and for its second annual 5K Reindeer Run/Walk on Dec. 7.
