Updated: November 28, 2021

I hope all the Blessed Trinity families had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed the break. We still have 3 more weeks of school and plenty to do before the Christmas break so please help your child stay focused. There is plenty of activity going on in the classroom as we prepare for the many activities that go on in the school during this time so your help is greatly appreciated.

At this time of year we ask students to think of those less fortunate who might not receive a gift for Christmas. All items will be donated to Catholic Charities and must be turned in by Wednesday, December 8th. Gifts for younger children are always welcome, but don’t forget about teenagers. They would love to receive gift cards, items from Bath & Body Works, and ear pods. All students who turn in a NEW gift will receive a no uniform day on Thursday, December 16th. Please have your child bring the item to the homeroom teacher so we can keep track of who earns the no uniform day.

The Christmas Program has returned!  Mark your calendars for the evening of Tuesday, December 14 at 7:00 PM. Students are to arrive no later than 6:45 and should be dressed in their “Christmas Best”. Please, no jeans. If your child will be unable to attend, please let me know.

Fifth grade Help Sessions are Thursdays immediately after school. It is for students who are struggling (earning a grade of D or F) and need extra help. Sessions end at 3:30 PM. Any student not picked up by 3:35 will be sent to Extended Day at the parent’s expense.

Accelerated Reader: Students will be required to read and take 3 Accelerated Reader (AR) Tests and corresponding Vocabulary Quizzes (if available…not every book has one) within his/her assigned reading level range, striving for 80% accuracy, each Quarter. Your child’s range is written in the back of his/her Planner. Reading levels will be adjusted throughout the year.  Three AR Tests with a minimum score of 80% are due at the end of each quarter.  Please encourage your child NOT to wait until the last-minute! Be sure to check out `ARBookFind.com for book recommendations and AR levels.

Homework Policy:

— 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.

Class Rules:

— Have all needed books, notebooks, spirals, and supplies at your desk for the portion of day because you will not be allowed to return to the cubby to get something.

— Respect all adults, faculty, staff, volunteers, and students. Speak kindly and treat each other as you want to be treated.

— Raise your hand to ask or answer a question.

— Pencils are to be sharpened at the beginning of the day OR during classwork time.
