Dear Holy Trinity Families,
We cannot believe that our 5th annual Rock The Challenge/Field Day is less than one month away. Friday, June 2nd (rain date June 5th) will be here before you know it and we have a lot of great things to do in preparation!
In years’ past RTC was a fundraising event for the school, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting a philanthropic cause. This year, we will again not be fundraising for the school, nor will we solicit sponsorships. We are hoping to raise money through fun events, such as a designated dress down day, a bake sale and a donut day.
This year, RTC is honored to benefit Avon Lake resident Piper Samuels. On August 8, 2016, five year old Piper was diagnosed with metastatic Ewings sarcoma, a complicated and rare form of bone cancer. Since her diagnosis, this feisty and spirited child has undergone 14 rounds of chemotherapy, during which time she had to have her right leg amputated to help prevent the stubborn cancer from returning to its original location as it’s known to do. The month of May will consist of 28 rounds of radiation to round out what they hope is the end of her treatment. Piper’s favorite t-shirt sports the saying “Girls Crush” prompting their survival mantra “Piper Will Crush Cancer.” We are excited to honor this little warrior and proud to join the Samuels family in an ActivPrayer at our RTC event!!
The night before Piper's amputation surgery, hundreds of people flooded the Samuels front yard in an impromptu and surprise prayer vigil. Check out this link to see the touching tribute featured on WKYC.
As always, we are thrilled to join together with Coaches Paul Theodore (Coach Theo of FMU) and Dan Bednar, Holy Trinity students, parents, teachers and administration in what has proven to be one of the most fun and meaningful days of the year!
Coming home today, Monday, May 8th, with your oldest or only child is the Rock The Challenge/Field Day Information Packet. Please make sure to ask your child for it.
Included in this packet is the RTC letter explaining who we will be honoring and dedicating our ActivPrayer to. Also included are 2 waivers, Coach Theo's and Holy Trinity's permission form. These must be signed and turned in, in order for your child to participate. All students may be listed together on each waiver. The last page is the t-shirt order form. Please make sure you list all of your students and mark the correct t-shirt size.
A big thank you to PTU for purchasing our RTC/Field Day shirts.
To keep all forms together, please tear off the top RTC letter to hold onto, but keep the two waivers and t-shirt order form stapled together and have your student return the completed packet to the office.
ALL FORMS ARE DUE THIS FRIDAY, MAY 12TH! No exceptions.
Thank you in advance for your support.
Noreen Woidke, Marlene Joyce, Sandra Foley and Erika Temple
