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

Football, oyster roasts, and pumpkin spice are permeating our lives! It is so hard to believe that we are ending September and beginning October! 

We had a very good week at Trident Academy! Students are truly excited about what they are learning in class. Each morning I get a snapshot of what is important to them. They tell me they learning about community, money, "the spheres" (atmosphere, stratosphere, etc), and all sorts of science, math, and history stuff! They also talk about "red words", the doubling rule, COPS, and other OG principles. You would be proud to hear them speaking up in the whole group answering my silly questions and telling jokes. Our morning meetings are so productive because your children are excited to participate. 

Next week should be another awesome week! 

Please don't forget about the Trident Academy Oyster Roast scheduled for just 2 short weeks from now. TAPA has been busy collecting raffle items and Jamie Westendorff is already looking for the very best oysters to serve! Tickets are available on our website!

Have a wonderful weekend!
