To accommodate the need for an outdoor physical education area and team sports for the middle school students, construction was begun on soccer and softball fields in the summer of 2004. The completion of the sports fields in fall 2005 allowed the Blessed Trinity Eagles to participate in the Diocese of St. Augustine Catholic Conference of team sports in both co-ed soccer and girls’ softball. Boys’ softball was organized in spring 2007. A full size outdoor basketball court, completed in spring 2011, allowed Blessed Trinity students to participate in the diocesan basketball league starting in fall 2011; the Lady Eagles clinched the League and Tournament championship fall 2012! Restrooms, storage, and a concession stand were also added near the sports fields in spring 2011, making it a much better experience while out on the fields. In fall 2012, our first girls’ volleyball team was established and an outdoor volleyball practice area was constructed. Our Lady Eagles volleyball team clinched the League and Tournament championship for the 2014-2015 season!
In October 2020, the Parish Family Life Center is scheduled to be completed. It consist of three meeting rooms, a gymnasium and concession area. An outdoor patio area between the school and Family Life Center will be equiped with picnic tables and unbrellas, providing a pleasent outdoor eating and gathering space. Blessed Trinity school plans to host their first home volleyball games during the 2020-2021 season!
In addition to team sports, our students have a wide range of extra-curricular activities available to them. Depending on their grade, students may choose to participate in Choir, Band, After-School Art Class, Soccer Shots, Engineering for Kids, Dance, Yearbook, Battle of the Books, Karate, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, or Student Government.
Our first eighth grade graduation class held their commencement mass and ceremony on May 18, 2006. The graduating class consisted of 25 students, six of whom had been enrolled in the first second grade class at Blessed Trinity in fall 1999.
Blessed Trinity Catholic School strives to equip the students and staff with cutting edge educational technology. Through Federal Title Funds and Home and School Association fundraisers, twelve Smart Boards have been placed in the classrooms throughout the building. A technology fundraising campaign enabled the Technology Lab and Media Center to be completely re-equipped with 34 desktop computers in fall 2008. The Tech Lab was updated again in December 2012. Over the summer of 2017, the desktop computers in the tech lab were replaced with Gen 5 128GB ipads with attached keyboards.
The first 1:1 student ipads were issued to sixth grade for the 2012-13 school year. All middle school students now have iPads for in-school and home use as an educational tool supplementing textbooks and other educational resources. Many of the middle school textbooks may be access on the ipad, lightening the load with no need to carry several hardback textbooks. Teachers communicate with the students their daily/weekly assigns on the Schoology Learning Management System.
Each elementary classroom is equipped with several iPads to enhance student learning. Additionally, all teachers have been provided with an iPad and training on its use as an instructional tool. Each classroom is equipped with an Apple TV device, which allows for mobile learning.
Star Math, Accelerated Reading, Star Reader, IXL Math, and United Streaming, are examples of technological programs currently used to assess and enhance student learning.
