In this school year of new life, we will be using the Saints as guides and role models to help us be more like Jesus. There is so much we can learn from them.
We believe that if the children really knew more about them, they would see how “cool” the Saints truly are. So, how will we do this?
On the first Monday of the month, we will introduce the Saint of the Month at our morning prayer rally. We will talk about that Saint’s virtues and how we can be more like that Saint.
Being more like the saints will bring fresh starts, new life, and hope. Please ask your children about the Saints each month!
September’s Saint was St. Theresa of Calcutta and the virtue was kindness.
October’s Saint is St. Francis of Assisi and the virtues are to love all of God’s creatures and to live simply.
If a student demonstrates the virtue of the month, they will be given a white circle to decorate and they will be placed on the wall by the office, as part of a caterpillar’s body, We will build a new caterpillar each month.
The caterpillars will turn into a beautiful butterfly at the end of each month and by the end of the school year, we will have 10 beautiful butterflies that have transformed through the virtues of the Saints. NEW LIFE!
Check out September’s caterpillar and the butterfly it turned into!
10/24/21 Good evening. This is Mrs. Giroux calling from Trinity Catholic School with some news about our really busy week ahead. Tomorrow, which will be a day 5, we will not be having a Monday morning prayer service, because we will have a Halloween prayer service on Friday. I’ll get back to that later in this message.
This week begins our online and in person Book Fair. If you would like to come to the school in person, please sign up for one of the opening spots in the link below. You will be able to pick up your child from class to take them to the book fair during those hours.https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f49aeaa29a5f8c34-luau
This week is also Red Ribbon Week, when we learn about the dangers of controlled substances. Some of our students went to WMSA radio station and recorded messages they wrote about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. We will be sharing these this week on our Facebook and Instagram pages. Please refer to the graphic on Class Dojo for clothing suggestions for this week. So, tomorrow will be “Wear Red” day and also a jeans day!
This Thursday, we will honor our grandparents with Share the Wisdom Day. Students will be involved in a special activity during the day and will be dismissed at 11:30 so they can spend time with their grandparents or other family members. Unfortunately, guests will not be able to join us in school due to Covid concerns, but students will be sent home with activities they can complete with their grandparents in the afternoon. We encourage you to take some pictures while working together and send them in to Mrs. Tsibulsky at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be no afternoon busing that day or aftercare.
This Friday we will have our Halloween prayer service in the afternoon followed by our Halloween parade – weather permitting. I would like all of our students to be in the cafeteria for the prayer service, so unfortunately there won’t be any room for guests. However, guests are certainly welcome to view our parade which I anticipate will begin around 1:30. Students will leave the school from the Main Street door and walk towards the post office around the block. When we return to school, students will have their classroom parties. Only the room mothers will be able to attend the parties. And, a reminder that there will not be afternoon busing from Massena Central because they have a half day on Friday. And, St. Lawrence Central has also decided to have a half day, so there will not be afternoon busing from them either. Only Norwood Norfolk will provide pm busing this Friday.
I also want to thank all those who planned and were there for our wonderful Haunted Hallway and Trunk or Treat. A good, scary time was had by all. I was overwhelmed by the support from our Trinity families, and by all the work that went into decorating your cars! I was given the daunting task of choosing a “Trunk” winner, which was nearly impossible. But, I decided that Mrs. Fregoe’s class is the ultimate winner. Thank you to Jonathan and Brianna Tarbell for their Carnival themed “Trunk.” Mrs. Frego’s class will receive some goodie bags as winners. But, because literally all of the vehicles were so fantastic, I’ve decided that we will have a special movie and popcorn party for the whole school.
On another note, if you get a “potential spam” message when you receive a call from Trinity, please add our number into your contacts. That will solve that problem!
Have a good week!
