Greetings Titan family,
During our Titan Assembly today, I told the students The Starfish Story. For those unfamiliar, the story is about an old man on the beach filled with thousands of starfish who is throwing them back in the ocean one at a time. A young man walks up to the old man and points out that he cannot save them all, so why do it? As the old man throws another in the ocean, he mentions that it matters to the ones he saves.
The point was to remind us all that even though we cannot show kindness, love, and generosity to every person in the world, we can certainly do so with those we come into contact with. Hopefully, by making kindness a habit, our example will inspire others to join in and, thus, making a potentially bigger impact.
Since students were asked to “throw one starfish back into the ocean” each day, I feel it is only fitting to do the same.
“Thank you.” Sincerely, “thank you.”Holy Trinity is a very special place. It is a school unlike any other in the Lake Houston area. We cannot do our impactful work without your support and partnership.
Here are a few items of importance for this week.
- January 24 will be a “step up” day for current students. We will have each class spend some time experiencing what it is like to be one grade older. Also on January 24, we are hosting our final prospective family Open House. Please tell your friends, neighbors, colleagues, and peers.
- February 2 will be our annual Play Day. Details about the day will be shared next week.
State of the School Address
January 25 is the State of the School presentation. This is an important event at which I will report on the state of the school. This includes future goals and plans, insight into admissions, an explanation of school finance and budget, and information regarding tuition. This event will start at 6pm in the gym and should last about 1.5 – 2 hours. Finally, this is a parents-only event. We will not have any activities or child-care available. Please make appropriate plans to attend.
“Be a Titan”
The two “Be a Titan” events are on February 9 and February 12. Both are designed to welcome potential students to school and have them experience what it is like to “be a Titan.” The February 9 event is for students who will be in 1st – 5th grade next year. The February 12 event is for rising 3K – Kindergarten students. Both events will be from 9-11am.
Families can RSVP for the Open House and/or the “Be a Titan” events on our website.
Thank you for your support and partnership. I look forward to seeing you at the State of the School presentation on Tuesday.
It’s a great time to be a Titan,
