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

A new year brings the promise of change and new things! That is certainly true at Trident Academy! We have welcomed 2 new students this week, a 1st grader and a 7th grader! Both have settled into life with us and seem happy and ready to learn!

I've asked our students during our morning meeting to tell me something NEW they have learned this week: holocaust, living on a cloud, the yukele, Cherokees, and so much more! Students are excited to be back at school! And so am I!

I am looking forward to a great second semester!

FACULTY
Trident faculty recevied a special treat on Thursday! Headley Family Chiropractic was kind enough to offer a 15 minute massage to the entire faculty . Everyone was able to relax and also learned a few tips to help alleviate any aches and tension. We thank them for taking an entire day to give us this treatment!


LEAD
Trident has one main fundraiser each year which helps to cover the difference between tuition and the full cost of educating each student. It is also important as we reach out to the community- both individuals and foundations, that we have full support from our own parent community. We're thrilled that we already have 100% faculty and staff support.  Thank you to those who have already given to the Annual Fund.

If we hit out participation and dollar goals, the students will be able to rennovate a room to create an incredible Makerspace- which would be ideal for our students!  


To make a pledge now- and pay between January and May: email Rob:   rharrahill@tridentacademy.com
