This is a special issue of our newsletter, capturing the very many special moments of
Catholic Schools Week! I hope you enjoy our collection of many wonderful moments, which included Spelling Bees, Curriculum Fair and mass with Bishop Rojas! There were so many activities...it actually lasted a bit longer than a week for us. But, when you are celebrating our children and our faith, does anyone really mind? J
Students from first to eighth grade competed in our annual Junior High Spelling Bee
(5-8) and Primary Spelling Bee
(1-4). The following students were awarded 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each Spelling Bee.
Congratulations to all winners.
Trinity Lee has won 1st place in our Junior High Spelling Bee for the
