Attention young scientists! Have you ever wanted to explore the depths of a rainforest, swim in volcanic waters, or zip line through the trees of a cloud forest? Now is your chance. Trinity will be taking a 10-day science research trip to Costa Rica this summer. We will study leaf cutter ants, frogs, and butterflies in the jungle and look for sea turtles on the coast. Students will have an opportunity to work with college professors while they travel through Costa Rica’s diverse landscape. Don’t pass up an opportunity to learn, eat, and play in one of them most beautiful places in the world. If you are interested, please see Mr. Heintz in room F135. Get your parents to attend the parent information meeting Tuesday, September 18 at 6 p.m. to discuss the trip accommodations, science content, and much more.

The Congressional App Challenge is designed to engage student creativity and encourage their participation in STEM education fields – that’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. This nationwide event allows high school students from across the country to compete against their peers by creating and exhibiting their software application, or “app,” for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice.  If you know how to code and have an idea for a game or want to create an app to solve a problem or make a task easier – you should enter this challenge!  You can work alone, or with a team of up to 4 students. You can register now and submit your app later…. If you register before September 10, you will receive early incentives.  Apps are due by October 15.  See Mrs. Mason in the Technology Center for more information or visit www.congressionalappchallnge.us/

The Senior Flag Corps is a special group of seniors who represent the school by participating in the pre-game Flag Ceremony held at home Trinity Football games. The Flag Corps is dedicated to maintaining the dignity of these ceremonies, and they are widely appreciated by both home and visiting fans. Their work has been copied and used elsewhere in many high school stadiums. As a member of the Senior Flag Corps, you will meet about a half an hour before home football games, lower the American flag, fold it, and take it to the home side of the stands.  Then you return to the visitor’s side.  Some honorees are announced, and members of the Trinity chorus start singing God Bless America.  At this point you walk to the middle of the field and receive the flag from the honorees, and carry it to the flagpole, where you attach it and turn the crank to raise the flag while everyone sings the Star Spangled Banner.  That’s it – then you can return to the student section and cheer for the ROCKS! See Mrs. Mason in the Technology Center if you are interested in joining the Senior Flag Corps!
