Coming Soon: Parent / Guardian Survey on Bell Schedule

The Scheduling Committee has been hard at work creating 2 surveys to gather input on what the Trinity community values and sees as areas for improvement for our current 4x4 block bell schedule. The students shared their opinions in a survey on Friday, November 3. We would like to get YOUR opinion, as the parents/guardians of our Blazers. In next Sunday’s letter (November 12) we will share a survey with YOU. Please take some time to fill it out. Thank you for partnering with us to provide the best education for our students.

Pre-IB/IB Progress Reports sent to parents/guardians on Wednesday, November 8 

On Wednesday, November 8 teachers will inform students and parents/guardians of those students in Pre-IB or IB classes who are struggling to meet the course requirements. The Progress Reports, sent at the conclusion of the first block of a 2 block course via the Blackbaud grading platform, will provide students with strategies on how to improve their performance. If you do not receive a progress report for your Blazer, it means that she is meeting all course expectations.

Drop-off Instructions

Students may not be dropped off or picked up on Lathrop OR Division. This causes safety hazards for our students as well as traffic issues. The River Forest Police Department patrols the main entrance and will issue tickets. 

For the safety of our students and our mission to be good and respectful neighbors, please observe the following drop-off and pick-up pattern:

Sunflower Chamber Orchestra

On Tuesday, November 7 Trinity will welcome the Sunflower Chamber Orchestra from 8:00AM - 9:15AM in the Fox Auditorium Foyer.

They will be beginning a string ensemble here at Trinity and will work with any level of experience (or no experience). Please come see what they have to offer at 8:00 AM on Tuesday, November 7.

Students who attend will have opportunities to reflect upon and pray about their relationships with God, themselves, and others.
