Hello, Trident Academy Family. Here is your news!
Weekly Updates
Head of School
Pearl Harbor

This week has been a wonderful transition back to work! Teachers and students are heavily engaged in teaching and learning. Not only are they working hard, but they are having fun! One lower schooler reported that looking at sugar under a microscope is "the coolest thing ever!"

Next  Friday, December 7 , Trident Academy will be hosting a Parent-Legislative Drop-In beginning at 10 AM. Please plan to come, meet with Charleston area legislators and voice your opinions about the Exceptional SC grants program. I would highly encourage those who have applied for but did not receive a grant to come and tell your stories. These are the people who can make that change!

Stay dry this weekend!

Sailfish

And yes, Cooper has a tape mustache!
Upper Elementary
A group of the 4th and 5th grade students are reading
"The Christmas Carol" play. 
Middle School
The middle schoolers went to the aquarium on Thursday for a field trip. They were able to learn more about the varieties of life within our ecosystem.
TAPA
We are looking for LEGO donations for our LEGO wall. If you have any old LEGO's lying around, please consider donating them to Trident for our students to use for their LEGO wall. 

Next TAPA meeting is Wednesday, Dec.5th at 8:00 a.m. following drop off. 

We are not participating in a winter fundraiser this year. There will be no poinsettia or greenery sale this year.
