WE ARE THANKFUL FOR A SAFE AND HEALTHY CAMPUS!
Thank you for your continued efforts to keep our community healthy and our campus open! Thanksgiving Break is a good opportunity to give backpacks, lunch kits, water bottles, and masks an extra-thorough cleaning; use this time to double-check that masks fit comfortably and securely cover your child's mouth and nose. Please, celebrate the holiday season safely and responsibly.

TES PTO PRESENTS SAES PARENT ZOOM
Our children have many questions about their mental health in light of the pandemic and Trinity has placed a priority on Social Emotional Learning to ensure students can be successful this school year. Doctors Rob Evans and Michael Thompson will host an evening for Trinity families via ZOOM. Please join us Tuesday, December 8th from 6 to 7 PM; the link to register will be shared after the break.
Trinity Beginning School & Lower School have adopted The Meridian Retirement Home for our Christmas service project.
