TRINITY & UTMB MAKE A GREAT PARTNERSHIP!
Trinity second graders, along with their teachers Mrs. Jena Krinock & Mrs. Brandee Rivera, hosted a special reception this week for any UTMB parents or grandparents affiliated with Trinity. They had live music performances, served breakfast, read letters to their Healthcare Heroes, and prepared art work luminarias for display on campus that evening. It was a very successful event and a great service-learning opportunity for our students! We want to thank Trinity parent, Jose Rodriguez with Create a Moment Photography & Video, for capturing some wonderful photos for us!
Second graders Joli Williams, Kate Zendeh Del, and Lydia Abbott distribute gift baskets assembled by their classes to UTMB employees!
