PTC—PARENT TEACHER CONNECTION:  Research shows parental involvement in school events increases the level of success students achieve in school.  We invite all parents to actively participate in our school’s PTC group.  The  PTC  is a vital organization which serves the school in  many  ways:  hospitality, welcoming new families, fundraising, extra-curricular activities, field trips, classroom parties and as cafeteria aides.  The PTC usually meets once a month.  It is a wonderful way to become involved in your child’s education and to meet other parents in the Trinity family.

Other ways you can stay involved at TCS:

MONDAY MORNING PRAYER SERVICE:  The Trinity Catholic family begins each week with an All School Prayer service in our cafeteria at 8:45.  Each class takes turns preparing and presenting our Monday morning prayer.  Birthday wishes are extended to all who are celebrating birthdays for that week.  Students who stand out demonstrating Christian values are recognized each week as “Disciples in Action.”   Parents of  students  being  recognized as “Disciples  in  Action” will be notified  in advance so they can  attend  and  witness their child receiving such a special award. Parents, grandparents and  parishioners are invited and encouraged to attend our Monday Morning Prayer Services.  It is a wonderful and joyful way to begin each week.

VOLUNTEERS:  Our volunteers are the lifeblood of Trinity Catholic and we are greatly blessed by their active participation in our school.  We strongly encourage all of our parents and grandparents to take on an active role in some way at Trinity Catholic.  All individuals who volunteer in the school, whether they are in direct contact with students or not, must complete a VIRTUS training session and will be asked to complete the diocesan mandated background check. Volunteers will only have to go through Virtus training one time.  All volunteers are expected to dress appropriately. Clothing should be modest and neat.  Our volunteers embody Christian values in our school setting.


The following programs benefit the PTC

Our PTC does not have a budget, so our events are put on through generous family and local business donation.

 

Shoparoo App

One way we’re able to earn a little cash for our events is through the app, Shoparoo. Basically, you download the app (available in the App Store and on Google Play) and take a picture of your receipt within 2 weeks. Receipt totals are then turned into points, and the points are converted into cash for our PTC. It’s that simple! This is easy, free money that we can use to bump up our events to be even better. This year Trinity will be receiving a check for almost $250! Once you download the app, sign up (with an email address or through Facebook) then search for “Trinity Catholic School” in Massena, NY. You can then choose to add your name for the leader board (this is totally optional!) And since it’s an app, anyone, anywhere can help! Yep, even aunt Susie in Oregon.
*Tip: On the Profile tab, you can set up a weekly reminder to scan your receipts!

Please visit this site to scan and log your code with Coca Cola. Trinity is set up already. If you type in the zip code, Trinity along with all the other surrounding schools are there.
