Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we transition our school into temporary distance learning. Please check back often for updated weekly learning plans.

Sign-Up to Lead a Monday Morning Assembly

If you are interested in helping Mrs. Marentez lead our Monday morning assemblies remotely, please sign up for one of the dates and slots to lead.

We will need a student to lead us in each of the following:

  • Pledge of Allegiance
  • Prayer
  • SLEs
  • Mission Statement

Mrs. Marentez will then recognize the birthdays for the week, and we will sing Happy Birthday together. Once you have signed up for a date and part to lead, Mrs. Marentez will email you with the next steps.

We included all the Mondays for the rest of the school year because we have not received an update on the end date of this temporary school closure from Bishop McElroy and the Office for Schools yet. As soon as we get a more definite date of when school will resume, the students that have signed up for those dates and parts will still be the ones that will lead our school community in those Monday-morning assemblies.

Thank you for taking an active part in our Holy Trinity School community during this temporary distance learning. We are all in this together!

Mrs. Marentez Invites You

The story of the cross - The stations of the cross for childrenMrs. Marentez invites you to join her for a Lenten read-aloud of The Story of the Cross. Praying the Stations of the Cross, alone or with a group, is a Lenten tradition and a special devotional prayer to help us recall the tremendous love of Jesus Christ as He suffered and died for our salvation.

  2. Continue to fulfill your tuition commitment to help our Catholic school.
  3. Participating in the ShopWithScrip program while school is closed is as easy as one, two, three! Check out how, by viewing the online tutorial prepared by Theresa Sweetman.

Tuesday Turn-in Workday

Tuesday turn in work days

If your child has completed work that we need to grade, there will be an opportunity to “turn-in” work from 8:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m. at the front of the school. Please follow the procedures on the Tuesday Turn-in Workday flyer to help ensure the health and safety of our school community. 

  1. Park your vehicle in a designated parking spot.
  2. Send one family member from your vehicle to turn-in work to the appropriate grade level bins with your child’s grade and teacher name. Please use hand sanitizer before and after.
  3. Please make sure you close the bin. Please practice appropriate social distancing. If there is someone there before you, please wait at least 6 feet apart until the person before you finishes turning in their work.

Online Netiquette 

Now that all classes are actively on Google Classroom and becoming more familiar with this educational tool and its features, teachers and students will be getting used to a new normal of connecting and receiving information. We ask for your support in helping us remind the students of appropriate “netiquette,” and how to practice good online manners when commenting or posting online. When communicating on Google Classroom or through email correspondence, students are strongly encouraged to use the same appropriate school language they would use as if in-person with teachers on the school campus.

Tuition Commitments

You know firsthand that our Catholic schools are a gift to our Church and to our world, but where we stand today, the question of tuition is a real challenge for some families. With work hours either reduced, jobs eliminated or people furloughed, families are making difficult financial decisions. As you hit the reset on your household budget priorities, please remember that our Catholic schools are dependent upon tuition. In addition to maintaining general operations, tuition supports teacher/staff salaries and quality academic programming, including integrated faith formation. I ask that you continue to support your Catholic school with your tuition commitment. Your Catholic schools are here to support you and your children. Please work with your pastor and principal if the challenges of today become too much. It is our hope that the impending federal economic stimulus package will assist each of us in this commitment. As Church and as a global family, we are in this together.

Please read Director of the Office for Schools Diocese of San Diego John Galvan's complete letter to parents regarding tuition commitments.

Virtual Prayer

Singing the Prayer of St. Francis is one of our school community's favorite weekly traditions. Since we are unable to gather together during this temporary school closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this virtual prayer was created so that all of us can sing along with each other no matter where we are! 

Please continue to join our school community in a remote rosary daily. We will get through this together, Hawks! #hawkstrong
