Growth Mindset Saying for October – My brain is like a muscle that grows!

October is a month of beauty as the leaves are transformed into a painter's pallet of color. Just as the leaves change so do your children as they become more independent and responsible. Foster these traits by letting students work independently on homework, have assigned chores, and get backpacks and clothes ready for the next morning.

Blessed Mother: During the month of October, we celebrate our Blessed Mother through the recitation of the rosary. As Catholics, we recite the Rosary during October, meditating on Christ's life and praying for peace in our world. Our teachers pray decades of the rosary with the children. As a school, the rosary comes to life in a beautiful ceremony dedicated to our Lady in The Divine Mercy Chaplet and Eucharist Holy Hour. Perhaps as a family, you might also take a day during the month, or once a week to pray the Rosary together. The power of prayer is tremendous. Please join us for the Eucharistic Holy Hour and Divine Mercy Chaplet on Friday, October 13th at 1:00pm in the church.

Consecration to the Virgin Mary and the Centennial Celebration of Fatima: All families are invited to join Bishop Zubik in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of our Lady of Fatima on Friday, October 13, 2017 at St. Paul's Seminary. The event begin at 5:00pm with a picnic style dinner followed by a candlelight Eucharistic Procession and Consecration. Please find time to enrich your families spiritually. See the flyer for additional information and pricing. Tickets must be purchased in advanced.

From the Desk of the Principal: Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!

Lights Camera Action, it is time for an Oscar winning new year. The beginning of a new school year, like the release of a new movie reminds us that the future holds new possibilities. I hope that your summer was relaxing, filled with adventures and good health because you deserve it. Many of you are returning cast members at Holy Trinity Catholic School and for the other families, it is a brand new script on the educational journey for your children. We will continue to refine our proven foundation of good work, honored traditions and continued excellence in education as we direct and inspire our student stars. Personally, I am grateful and happy to continue my journey with you as your Principal in a school where every student is a star.

Let me begin by introducing myself to the new families. This year marks my 12th year at HTS and I am just as excited for the beginning of this school year as I was for my first. I have worked in education for 32 years. My husband Rich and I have 4 children, spread across the United States. Dominick, his wife Megan and my granddaughter Kinley (19 months old) live in Edmond, Oklahoma. I am anxiously awaiting the birth of my second grandchild in September. Dominick is a geologist for Chesapeake Energy. Devin, my oldest daughter is an Emergency Room nurse in Mission Hills, California. Dilyn is in her last year of graduate school at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks and Delaynie my youngest child, is an education major at California University.
