Hello, Trident Academy Family. Here is your news!
Weekly Updates
Head of School
Make-up days and other good news

As we all know, Hurricane Florence caused us to close school for four days in September. The good news is that we built extra days into our calendar this year so that we would not have to take away planned time off. Our Thanksgiving Break was purposely shortened in order to add some of the extra days. You will notice that we are in school on the Monday and Tuesday of Thanksgiving week. In fact, the lower school Thanksgiving program is scheduled for Tuesday morning, November 20. Please make plans to attend; this is one of the highlights of the year!

I attended a conference this week with the tagline: aspirations and operations. It has made me wonder about Trident Academy and the future. I am so excited for what the future holds for us. We are poised to really make a difference in how children with dyslexia and other language-based learning differences are taught. We've been using OG multi-sensory instruction for many years, but there is a new awareness of the benefits for all learners. Trident will be on the cutting edge of a new educational wave and we will make a difference!

Thank you for being a part of the future!

Have a lovely fall weekend!


The Book Fair will be October 23-29! The students are already so excited!
This week in Guidance we learned that empathy means having the ability to understand and share the feelings of another! Next week, we will be "taking a walk in someone else's shoes". Our students continue to amaze me with their positive attitudes and compassion!
