Your Opinion Counts
On Friday you received an email explaining that Trinity is undertaking an exercise to envision the Trinity of the future. In order to do so, we must come to understand where we are now. The email included a link for parents to sign up to participate in a focus group which will take place from 5:00-6:00 PM on Monday, February 17th. In addition, it asked for all parents to participate in a survey that will be sent this Monday, January 27th. If you would like to attend the focus group but have not yet replied, click here . Thank you in advance for your assistance!.

Although summer seems very far away, it's not too early for students to start thinking about how they'll spend their time over summer break.
