Seniors: You will fill out your yearbook Senior Index form in your English class today for Green Day classes and on Monday for White Day classes. Prepare to fill out the form by bringing in a list of all Trinity activities in which you have been involved. Also write down honors you have received. If you wish, you may want to come up with a short quote for the index. DO NOT quote other students or faculty. Make sure the quote is appropriate, or it will not be included in the book. Please include the author of the quote.

Trinity’s Spring Red Cross Blood Drive will take place on Tuesday, March 26.  Please consider donating the Gift off Life!  You may donate if you are 16 years old or older.  If you are 16, you will need your parent’s permission – there is a form you must pick up from Mrs. Mason in the Technology Center or from Mrs. Miller in Rm. F337, or at the sign up table during lunches.  Signups will be taking place this week at lunch or you can sign up online at redcrossblood.org.  Our drive is not limited to students.  Parent, siblings, and friends of Trinity are also encouraged to donate – and don’t need an appointment – they can just drop in.  One of our seniors will receive a college scholarship based on the number of pints of blood we collect.  So, we are not only helping someone in the community, we are also helping one of our own!

Attention all Freshmen:  Freshman Retreats will start next week.  Your retreat will last 2 blocks and will be on campus.  You will have a free dress day and can wear shorts or athletic pants.  These are mandatory for all freshmen.  If you are absent, you will be rescheduled.  Your advisor or theology teacher will give you more information about your retreat dates.

The Sts. Peter and Paul Society will offer Stations of the Cross during Lent on Friday afternoons in the Chapel starting @ 2pm.  Stations of the Cross are a traditional Catholic prayer that remembers Jesus’ way of the cross.  It can be a powerful prayer experience.  All are welcomed.

A summer opportunity for high schoolers with a background in shop, building, engineering, or design being offered at University of Louisville. We’re launching Design the Future, a 6-day STEM & Design Thinking summer camp where high school students build products to overcome challenges faced by individuals with disabilities! Come to academic services for more information.

Are you interested in becoming a lawyer or learning more about law careers? The Louisville Bar Association’s 2019 Summer Law Institute (SLI) will be held Sunday, June 16 to Saturday, June 22 at the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law. This is a 7-day residential program for high school students interested in the law and the legal profession. The schedule will include panel discussions with attorneys and judges, mock trial sessions, and topics taught by attorneys and law school professors. Applications can be picked up at Academic Services.

Juniors—your retreat days continue over the next few weeks. Not sure when you go? Check the rosters posted outside Campus Ministry offices and in your theology classrooms. On your retreat day, report to the cafeteria instead of 1st block. You can dress down in jeans, a collared or Trinity shirt, and sneakers. You’ll be off campus all day and lunch is included. Details will also be sent to your school email the day before your retreat.


Tuesday, March 26:     WALTER – YOUNGBLOOD


Last Saturday the Trinity academic team traveled to Mason, Ohio to compete in the Mason Mashup Invitational.  The 3-man squad of juniors Nick Huls, Jack McCalpin, and Aden Yeager went undefeated in pool play, beating the likes of Tippecanoe, Walnut Hills, and Solon High Schools. In the playoffs, the Rocks fell to Tippecanoe and finished 3rd ½ game out of 2nd place. This qualifies Trinity for the PACE National tournament, which is in addition to the National Academic Association tournament for which the Rocks have already qualified. However, the biggest news of the Mason tournament was that Trinity junior Nick Huls finished FIRST PLACE in Individual scoring!  In the 11 years that Mr. Amick has coached the quick recall team, Trinity has never had a student place first place overall in points at an invitational tournament.  Additionally, Jack McCalpin and Aden Yeager placed 15th and 19th, respectively.  This accomplishment is a testament to the hard work and dedication these students have shown throughout the year.  Please congratulate them if you see them.

All Beta Club Service Hours are due by the end of the school day March 29. Please turn these in to Mr. Becker or Mr. Aberli. If you are a member of FBLA who will be competing at state, please remember that you need to bring in your money to Ms. Comstock by today. Thanks and go Business Rocks!


Lacrosse Rocks play tonight at 4:30 against Eureka High School from Missouri. Go Lax Rocks!
