Dear Trinity Parents,

Reviewing my calendar has left me astonished, realizing how close to the finish line we are. May is always a busy month at TES, and this year is no different. Similar to successful events such as our 2020 Graduation, Fall Book Fair, Lessons and Carols, and the Kindergarten Circus, May traditions will still take place, albeit in modified forms assured to keep our community safe. Please mark your calendars for the upcoming dates, particulars will be shared on a case-by-case basis.

May 6 | NJHS Recognition, during Chapel

May 7 | May Fête and Leslie Otto Memorial Flower Show: May Fête is the oldest tradition held at Trinity, in which PK2 through 4th Grade present dances to honor the 5th Grade court (this year’s court will also include 6th Graders), followed by the 5th Grade dance around the May Pole in celebration of Spring. This year, parents are not able to attend, except for parents of 5th Graders. 5th Grade parents, you will receive tickets prior to the event. Students will be safely spaced, and the performances will be accessible on the school YouTube channel for you to enjoy along with your children at your leisure. This is a noon dismissal day and there is no lunch or extended care. Room parents and teachers will be sharing details about costumes and flower show wreaths.

May 10 | Beginning School Muffins with Moms on the Garth

May 11 | Citizenship Award Ceremony: Character counts at TES. Two students from each Kinder through 8th Grade class are recognized for outstanding citizenship. Parents of Citizenship Award winners will be invited to an abbreviated outdoor ceremony on the Garth to see their children accept the award and pose for a picture with the Head of School.

May 21 | Beginning School Splash Day: Mrs. Leimer will share details.
