2019-2020 ADMISSION SEASON

Admissions season for 2019-2020 is around the corner! Re-enrollment kicks off on February 1st and ends on February 22nd. Because it is critical for us to determine the openings available for siblings and new families, re-enrollment contracts received after February 22 will incur the $75.00 new student fee and those students will not be guaranteed placement in the fall. Per our school policy, students may not re-enroll if the parent has an account with the school over 60 days in arrears. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me. Thank you. – Chloe Knauer, Director of Advancement and Admission.

Monday Message 12/3

Dear Trinity Family and Friends,

 

What is the “Good Life?” Thanksgiving reminds us that simplicity is important to living a good life.  We all know that the more we have, the more difficult life can become; it is ironic that we find simplicity in giving thanks for having abundance.  As I assembled with my close friends and family this past Thanksgiving I pondered, “What means the most to me?” Health, family, and friends came to mind.

 

In choosing to live simply, we find what is most near and dear to our hearts and minds.  Living simply enables one to take time for oneself, to be grateful for what is near and dear to us, to feed mindfulness, and to be true to oneself. Many of the great thinkers attained simple living.  Their philosophy became a way of life. As our children grow older and wiser, they will begin to contemplate how they will live their lives.  As educators and parents, we must ensure a message of simplicity; being present in the moment and engaging in life will lead to fulfillment.

 

Here at Trinity you will see and hear about advent. The word ‘Advent’ is from the Latin ‘Adventus,’ which means ‘coming.’ Advent is the beginning of a new liturgical year (in the Western churches) and encompasses the span of time from the fourth Sunday before Christmas until the Nativity of Our Lord is celebrated. Like Lent, Advent is a preparatory season. It has significance because it is a season of looking forward and waiting for something greater; both for the annual celebration of the event of Christ’s birth, and for the time when Christ will come again. Let us all reflect on the most powerful life force of love and simplicity.

 

With warm regards,

Mark Ravelli / Head of School

Dear Trinity Families and Friends,

We are blessed to be involved in the process of the formation of your children.

Today’s world is information obsessed. We are flooded with information from friends, media and other outside sources, and we form a belief based on those communications. However, when new information comes our way, we assimilate it, and that becomes a new experience.  Contemplation of the word “information” leads us to explore the root: formation.

for·ma·tion/fôrˈmāSH(ə)n

noun: the action of forming or process of being formed.

Formation takes time. Formation happens in readings and discovery, in placing our children in a setting where they gather information, discover and form ideas based on what they believe from prior knowledge and making mistakes. Formation is understanding, empathy, and taking complete ownership of something. Formation is cultivated over time. It is particularly drawn-out for young children whose world tends to be self-centered and controlled by developmental factors.

As instruments in the formation of your child, we must consider that formation occurs best in an environment of understanding. To understand another person, we must temporarily set aside our wants and needs. When we come to understand another person, it does not necessarily mean we agree with their mindset, but we must be willing to accept that they may hold views and opinions very different from our own. We grow up in different environments, with different influences and experiences that shape and form our opinions and view of life. We cannot know someone until we first try to understand the world from which they are coming. To that end, the world we grew up in is very different from the one which our children are experiencing. Parenting does not come with a manual, but one thing has guided me well: by not focusing upon my world and instead seeking to understand the other person’s perspective, I believe I become a better listener, a much better parent, and ultimately better able to be a positive impact of formation.

“Good Judgement comes from experience and experience comes from bad judgment “ Rita Me Brown.
