Holy Trinity’s First Ever COLOR RUN: Permission slips and fee due by Friday, May 21
This 1 mile run around our campus will feature four different color stations as well as various obstacles in between the color stations for team building and student participation. This event will take place on our Field Day scheduled for May 28th.
If you would like your child to participate in the Color Run we ask that you either send a check (made out to Holy Trinity School) or cash for $12.00 (Per Child) to school along with the attached permission slip. We ask that you send one permission slip per child, but can send a check or cash to school with one child in the family. This will cover both the cost of the supplies as well as allow HTS to make a donation to Claire’s Crusade. If your child decides not to participate, he or she can still be an observer and cheer on their classmates.
If your student is participating in the COLOR RUN, they should wear a white t-shirt, shorts/sweats, old tennis shoes and socks and any other accessory they choose (bandanas, hat, wig etc...). Please note that any item worn will potentially be stained and or ruined! We also recommend sunglasses, safety glasses/goggles and or swim goggles. Safety glasses or safety goggles can be purchased at Home Depot or on Amazon for $2-$3.
**COLOR RUN Ingredients:
Corn Starch (CAS #9005-25-8), Saleratus, Sodium Chloride ,Tri calcium phosphate, Preservative (E-218)(CAS NO. 99-76-3) FD&C approved colors (FD&C Blue1, FD&C Yellow5, FD&C Yellow6, FD&C Red3)

St. Baldrick’s Day is Back - Mark your calendars for Friday, May 21st 8:00-9:30am
There is still time to Brave The Shave!! Help us reach 50 participants this year! If you would like to register a student or you know of a family member that would like to be a “shavee” please use this link: https://www.stbaldricks.org/events/HolyTrinity2021

As in years past, we will again be bringing back the Hair Braiding Station. For $10, students can have their hair braided during our St. Baldrick’s event. All proceeds will go to Shanerock! We are looking for 10 parent volunteers to help braid hair that morning. If you would like to braid hair, please email Noreen Woidke at email@example.com
2021-2022 Uniform Updates:
The 21-22 uniform has been finalized. Schoolbelles has updated their website to reflect the new plaid. Holy Trinity's school code is S0080. We are in the process of updating the logo for our shirts. The new uniform will not be required until the 23-24 school year. School belles will be selling existing monogrammed shirts at a 40% discount to clear out the inventory.
The gym uniform will also be changing for the 23-24 school year. We will be purchasing athletic wear from Shamrock (our spirit wear company). It will be a red spirit wear t-shirt with black or navy bottoms. More information coming soon.
We would like to provide an opportunity for our students to keep their skills sharp during their summer break. Some of you may be familiar with the Summer Solutions Series. It is a program that provides daily repetitive practice of multiple objectives covered throughout the school year in a workbook format. The workbook includes problem sets, as well as a notes section and an answer key at the end. Books are available for many grade levels (Pre-K through High School Prep) in Math, Problem Solving, Reading Comprehension, Study Skills and English/Grammar.
Please read the online Summer Solutions Flyer that provides more information about the program and ordering. Each family can order their books online. The website www.summersolutions.net has additional information and sample pages. This is not a fundraiser for the school.
When ordering for math, choose the Standards-Based book. The level corresponds to the grade your child is completing. Therefore, a student finishing fourth grade would order the Level 4 Summer Solutions. Junior High Math Course 2 students should order Common Core Grade 7. Junior High Math Course 3 should order Common Core grade 8. Students who took Algebra this past year should order the Grade 8 Algebra 1 Part B book from the original Summer Solutions series.
Please contact Mrs. Wild firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

From the Nurse’s Office:
As the weather begins to turn, please continue to send a water bottle to school - water bottles need names. Our lost and found collection is growing daily - thank you!
In addition, a spare mask and for younger students - a change of clothes in your students’ backpacks is helpful too! We are trying to get outdoors for recess, but the muddy season is upon us as well. Thank you!
Parents, thank you for your continued diligence in monitoring symptoms and keeping kids home from school as necessary.
