Monday Message 10/2/17

Dear Trinity Families and Friends,

As we progress further into the school year, it is truly exciting to see what the Trinity community has accomplished in such a short time. At our Back to School Orientation evening, I shared that our Annual Fund goal was simply to get to 100 percent parent participation. As we celebrate 65 years of educating young leaders, I asked our Board of Trustees and our faculty and staff to lead the way in giving. To date these numbers have been staggering. When people believe in the mission of the school and its impact on the lives of our students, the possibilities are infinite. I would like to express my most sincere appreciation to you for making a Trinity education possible for the bright and aspiring students we serve. If you have given to the 2017-2018 Annual Fund, thank you; if you have not, then now is the time to do so. You will be receiving a solicitation letter in the mail this week and I ask that you participate in helping us reach our goal of 100% school community involvement.

Your continued support empowers Trinity to provide an enriching academic experience to our talented and diverse student population. To date Annual Fund dollars have gone towards the following initiatives: technology in the classrooms, relevant software updates and maintenance of the student information system, a further developed MAC with a barrier curtain to support more programs afterschool, software acquisitions to provide online and mobile communication conveniences for our new website, the creation of an Innovation Lab, increased safety and security, building repairs from Hurricane Harvey, equipment/furniture replacement, and faculty professional development.

As part of your charitable giving this year, I hope you will consider getting us to 100 percent parent participation. Your gift will help ensure that Trinity continues to maintain the highest level of academic excellence. Thank you for your past generosity and continued support.
