Monday Message 3-22-2021

Dear Trinity Families,


Below is the March 23, 2020 Monday Message, much of which holds true today. We have all been through so much in just one year. Many evacuated for hurricanes and tropical storms that went into the Greek alphabet, we had a historical arctic blast, and no one would have predicted that we would still be wearing masks a year out from 3-23-20. I always share that the three things that will get us through are faith, family, and friends. Health care workers and TES teachers are my heroes!




MM of 3-22-20: Our prayers remain with you as the week begins. I have been carbon-copied on all lesson plan emails, and I am very impressed! The words for this week are flexibility and balance. Remember that while there is likely to be an initial burst of excitement with this new method of parenting and teaching, and that we are all learning on-the-go, too much screen time is not healthy. This is a new normal for all of us nonetheless, learning will continue, students will advance their knowledge and skills and you will surprise yourself daily. But, remember: family first, balance and flexibility. E.Q (Emotional intelligence) triumphs over I.Q. (Intellectual intelligence) in almost every occasion.


We understand that you are balancing work, monitoring children, and most importantly, staying safe. Do not let the schoolwork and information cause you stress. There is no right or wrong way to do this, but we ask that you do the best you can with the tools that have been provided. Trinity Episcopal School will do everything it can to support you academically; the spiritual and physical needs are on you. Our mission holds true that TES is here to educate and nurture your children in a God-centered environment, filling hearts and minds with a passion for learning, a strong moral foundation, a commitment to social responsibility, and respect for all people. Remember, flexibility and balance.


Thank you for accepting the challenge,


Mark Ravelli
