Please note, if there is a Snow Day, we will skip that day in our 6-day cycle and continue with the next day when we return. For example, if we have a Snow Day on a Day 3, it will be a Day 4 when we come back the next day. In addition, since we do not have the automatic calling system in place right now, if you suspect there may be a Snow Day, please listen to WMSA Radio, watch Channel 7 News, and/or check our FaceBook Page and this website to confirm!
MANY, MANY thanks to Mrs. Elsie Scruggs for the beautiful way she has adorned TCS! If you have driven up Highland Avenue recently, you will have noticed the wording that now says “Trinity Catholic School” around the silver cross that has been there for many years. Mrs. Scruggs generously bought the letters in memory of her husband, Carl R. Scruggs, Sr. whose children AND grandchildren attended TCS. Mr. Larry Legeault kindly donated his time last week to attach the letters. We are so grateful to everyone involved in this project and look forward to a formal blessing which will occur sometime after the New Year.
We are beginning to use My Student Progress to call and/or text our parents when there is important information we need to get to you. We hope you are finding this useful. Keep an eye out for more information coming your way, soon.
FOR PARENTS OF BUSERS: Massena Central will have 1/2 days of school on Thursday, January 28 and Friday, January 29. We will be in session, as usual, and will have morning buses, BUT NO AFTERNOON BUSES.

Advent Service Project a Success!
Thank you to everyone who donated items or money to help with our service project! With your generosity, we were able to provide almost 400 items – like warm socks, denture cleaner, lotion, body spray, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc. – to be given to residents at both the St. Regis and Highland Nursing homes. In addition, our students, faculty and families made cards and ornaments to give to each person. To some, this may seem like such a small gift, to others this could mean the world. Many thanks to all of you and our teachers who shopped, organized and delivered the items today!
Congratulations to our Trinity Catholic’s Robotics’ Team for winning the Strategy and Innovation Award in the First Lego League Robotics competition Sunday, December 13! “This award recognizes a team that uses solid engineering practices and a well-developed strategy to design and build an innovative, high performing robot.” Excellent job! We appreciate the hard work of our Robotics Team, comprised of the following 5th and 6th grade students: Dylan Bissonette, Sabella Cromie, Emilie Fregoe, Amanda Polarolo, Sophie Stankovic, Ethan Stierheim and Gavin Torbey. Many, many thanks for the hard work of coaches Ann Borsellino, Donnie Bissonette and Nick Tsibulsky, and all of our parents who contributed so much time, energy and SNACKS for this talented group!

The tree will be lit every school day from 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM beginning November 30 and ending December 21. Thank you for your support.
