After drop off, they will be assembling their class wreaths for the Leslie Otto Flower Show. Thank you! For those who are new to Trinity this year, here’s a brief history: the flower show is named in memory of a former Trinity student. The child, Leslie Otto, and her mother were walking hand-in-hand in shallow water on the Seawall beach when a sudden strong current swept the young girl out to sea. The flower show has been an annual Trinity event for over three decades. After May Fête is over, we release the flowers into the ocean as a tribute to Leslie.

THIRD GRADE EXPERIMENTS WITH LAVA

Mrs. Rushing's and Mrs. Wisner's third grade classes recently took part in a fun and exciting science experiement! In this lesson, students investigated how differences in lava types explain differences in the shape and eruption patterns among volcanoes. In the activity, Bubble Trouble, students compared two different types of "lava" -- thin and thick. They used this information to figure out why volcanoes have different shapes and how the type of lava explains why some volcanoes explode.
