Blessed Trinity’s Scholastic Book Fair will begin Monday, August 20th and run through Friday, August 24th. A book fair flyer will be sent home with your child. This is only a small sampling of the great books available at the Fair. Your child will be visiting our Book Fair with his or her class and will have the opportunity to purchase books at that time. Your child will be coming home with a Wish List after he or she visits the Book Fair. You are not obligated to purchase what has been picked. This is only for your convenience. You may alter the list as you choose and return it with payment. The Book Fair is open daily from 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Thank you for partnering with us in encouraging children to read. Please see the link below for more information. Additionally, the Book Fair will also be open from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. during Primary & Elementary Open House on Wednesday, August 22nd.

Congratulations to Matthias and Caleb !
Matthias is our Blessed Trinity Catholic School Spelling Bee champion for the 3rd consecutive year and Caleb is our runner up. We wish both of them the best as they take on Marion County’s sharpest spellers in February.
Summer reading and math activities are designed to help sharpen our students’ skills in preparation for next school year. They also reinforce the idea that we never take a vacation from learning. Each summer, Blessed Trinity students are asked to complete both reading and math activities designed to decrease “summer loss” and increase student learning.
The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is open to all seventh and eighth graders who have met five criteria: scholarship, leadership, service, character, and citizenship and completed a membership application. We are very proud of our newly inducted members to this prestigious society.
The mission of Red & White Night is to provide our teachers with the tools, training and technology that will enhance academic excellence in the classroom.
This annual fundraiser consists of a wonderful Silent Auction, music, dinner and a much anticipated Live Auction! For more information, please visit our Red & White Facebook page.
Blessed Trinity Catholic School is one of three 2017 Innovation in Catholic Education “Technology Integration” Finalists, presented by Today’s Catholic Teacher magazine, for our new STREAM lab! Read more here.
Our new STREAM lab is located in the middle school building and is the result of the transformation of our old science lab/classroom. The plan has been evolving for several years, starting with research on how other schools were implementing STEM programs, evaluating curriculum resources, and identifying state-of-the-art technology for the lab.
Our STREAM lab will be a place where students can learn to persevere through failed ideas and understand they still gained knowledge through those failures to improve the next efforts.
One of the most exciting features of our new STREAM lab is the virtual-reality computer systems known as zSpace. The learning experience offered to our students through this technology transforms and accelerates their STREAM education.
Research has proven that manipulation is one of the most effective ways for students to engage with and retain knowledge. The zSpace K-12 curriculum allows students to interact with models in numerous areas of study, such as biology, chemistry, mechanics, astronomy, math, environment, history, and landmarks, just to name a few.
The activities also provide virtual-reality labs in which students can create experiments in physics, electrical engineering, chemistry, and more. Students can even sculpt or design their own prototypes using zSpace Studio and print their creations in our 3D printer.
