Hello, Trident Academy Family. Here is your news!

Head of School
So Very Thankful!

I hope you are enjoying the "thankful posts" on our Facebook page. I have been touched by some of the thoughtful words our students have used to express themselves!

We have continued to work hard this week despite periodic practice sessions for the Thanksgiving Program next week. In our morning meeting today I asked students about what they were learning and found so many things going on: "times & division";  axis; "fast facts"; "reading a great book about where chocolate comes from". There was also discussion about the Thanksgiving Program and their various parts. Everyone is very excited about performing for family next week. One of our students wanted to make sure we all knew that they were learning new things during their practice times: "We are learning how to speak boldly!" That's not the only benefit of participating in our Thanksgiving Program. Students learn many social and executive functioning skills while learning where to stand, what to do and how to "boldly" speak! I am very proud of all of them!

Have a wonderful weekend!
