Wouldn’t you love to wow company this holiday season with delicious, hot pies from the oven, THAT YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO PREPARE?  (Just make sure to add a few smudges of flour on your face, for effect!)  Many thanks to the Cafeteria for providing us all with a great opportunity to buy Chef Pierre frozen pies which will be delivered before Thanksgiving. Flavors include red raspberry, pecan, blueberry and pumpkin, to name a few.  Look for order forms coming home with students this week!  The flour?  Well, you’ll have to provide that.

We are proud of some of our Trinity Catholic students whose art work was selected to be on display for The Remington Arts Festival in Canton at TAUNY (http://tauny.org/sections/2/about-tauny!)

Congratulations to Luke Greco for winning the FIRST PLACE prize in the Miscellaneous category for his mixed media art work, and to Amanda Polarolo for winning HONORABLE MENTION for her dream catcher sculpture! All students received a certificate of participation, and elementary students (grades k-4) all received a pendant gift as well. Art work will be on display at TAUNY in Canton until October 17th! We hope you can go see what amazing work Trinity students create in art class before the exhibit is over!

 Share the Wisdom Daygrandmother-granddaughter

Our annual “Grandparents/Share the Wisdom Day” will be Tuesday, October 27.   We like the way things turned out last year, so we will continue with the same format for this year.  Students may invite a guest to share what they are learning in their classroom, go to the Book Fair, and celebrate Eucharist with them.  These guests may be grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, or friends of the family.  Students should be in school at the normal time, between 8:15 and 8:30, but ”Grandparents/Share the Wisdom Day” will begin at 9:00 with Mass at 11:00.   This IS a half day of school.  All students will be dismissed after 11:00 AM Mass  This is always an exciting day for our children.  They are anxious to share with others all they are learning at Trinity Catholic School.  I look forward to a full house on this day and visiting with you.  Please note: After school WILL NOT be available on this day.

 Monster Book Fair Coming Soon!


Our Scholastic Book Fair will be here October 26-29, but you can shop online October 21-November 4.   Click the monster picture to shop with no shipping costs!  Books will be delivered directly to Trinity Catholic.  If you would like to help at the Fair, contact Mrs. O’Keefe at tokeefe@trinitycatholicschool.net.

Bishop LaValley Visits!Bishop

Please join us for noon Mass on Thursday, October 22 with Bishop LaValley! We always look forward to the Bishop coming “home” to Sacred Heart, and are always interested in hearing what questions our students will have for him.:-)

Bring Your Friend

It’s true!  Since the public schools will not be in session on October 9, but TCS is, our students grades 3-6 may invite a friend of the same age to come to school with them for the day.  Permission slips are going home soon, and will need to be turned in quickly, since only 4 guests can attend in each class.


We Love Jean Days!

We DO love jean days, especially when they can help others!  Along with our normal jean day on the last Friday of the month – October 30, we have two extras this month.  Jeans can be worn on Friday, October 2 for $.50 to benefit Meals on Wheels.  In addition, they can be worn on Friday, October 9. Jeans for Jake will cost $.50 also, and will benefit Jake Ferrick, a first grade student at St. James Catholic School in Governeur who is battling cancer.
