No need to sign up. Students read the book, bring their lunch to the library, eat outside and then come in to play the Kahoot. Lunch Bunch Book Club information is available on Mrs. Houser’s Library OnCampus page under Groups.

It is each student's responsibility to bring a mask/face covering to school with them every day, just as they would a pen or pencil. Starting Monday, October 4th, Holy Trinity will begin charging $2 each time a student (grades 7-12) comes to school without a mask and must be provided one. The charges will be billed to your student's account around the first of each month. Only those students who consistently come to school without a mask will be charged. We understand there will be days when they forget, or unavoidable circumstances such as when a mask breaks or gets lost. In these cases, HT will provide up to five (5) masks per month, per student, at no charge. We appreciate our parents' support in helping to remind their children to bring their mask every day.
