“I have the strength for everything through him who empowers me.”
Updated: April 1, 2021
Congratulations to the 4th and 5th graders who participated in the Finals of the Tropicana/4H Speech Contest. The speeches were well prepared and the students did a wonderful job presenting them. I’m sure it wasn’t easy for the judges to determine the top three. In the end the results were: Juessa — First Place, Lorenzo –Second Place, and Luna — Third Place.
I hope all of our Blessed Trinity families have a Blessed Easter break and enjoy the next week and a half with their family.
Please remember to inform the office if you travel outside the country during the Easter break. We have been very diligent about keeping the school sanitized and limiting exposure throughout the school year. We want to keep all students, faculty, and staff safe so we can’t relax on the precautions.
Parents, please encourage your child to continue working on the IXL skills in both Math and Language Arts. These are meant to supplement what is being taught in the classroom. Students also have access to Reflex Math. This is another program that is used to help students improve and master basic math skills in a “game” format.

— Neatly done and complete.
— If collected, the student’s name must be on the top right corner to receive full credit.
— If there is no name, there is no credit. Students are reminded to write their name before they turn anything in and it is the first direction given for tests.
— All Math homework is to be done in pencil, never in pen.
— A student will complete a Homework Notice for any assignment that receives a zero. This notice explains why the assignment received a zero and must be signed by a parent and returned the next day. If the assignment is attached with the situation corrected, the student will receive 50% credit on that assignment instead of a zero.
