Trinity Academy begins school year
Caldwell, NJ - Trinity Academy grades PK-8, started off the 2014-2015 school year on Wednesday, Sept. 3.
Students, faculty and parents gathered in the morning for a back-to-school prayer service and assembly, where students were commissioned into their new grades.
New students were welcomed and old friends reunited after summer vacation. Kindergarteners and their parents had an orientation, while the middle school students checked out their new lockers. Prizes were awarded for the Bernie Summer 2014 Viral Campaign.
Studens came back to some changes at school, including new SMART boards, more iPADS, a required Latin class for the upper grades, science lab updates, and a further integration of STEM (science, technoloy, engineering and math) into the curriculum.
The eighth grade motto this year is "Make Today Count." The students get a motivational thrill of slapping the sign each day as they enter the school.
Ground-breaking for a new campus playground will take place next week, and already, a running club is beginning to get students ready for the Reindeer Run scheduled to take place on Saturday, Dec. 6.
Preschool begain on Monday, Sept. 8.
