Hello, Trident Academy Family. Here is your news!
Weekly Updates
Head of School
Greetings from Connecticut!

This week Anne Hall, Rob Harrahill, Catherine Hagberg, Julia Carter, and I have been attending the International Dyslexia Annual conference in Connecticut. It has been filled with great ideas for us to return to school and share with faculty and staff. I've attended sessions dealing with brain development, alternative assessments for determining dyslexia, college accommodations and so much more! It's been a great week of learning for us!
One of the biggest takeaways for me was a presentation dealing with sleep. Our brains work hard while we sleep; this is the time that all the information from the day gets processed and stored. The research suggests that without adequate sleep, we do not retain information well. This is particularly true of our children who have difficulties with learning in the first place. It's not even just the amount of sleep we get, but the quality of sleep is important as well. I'm looking forward to learning more about this emerging research!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Sleep well!

Trident took two teams to the SCISA Middle School Math Meet in Sumter, SC. This was a very hard competition with teams from across the state. Jared Restivo was the Team 1 High Scorer and Violet Anderson was the Team 2 High Scorer! All of our students did a great job and we are very proud of them!
