TTV for Friday, October 28, 2016

Academic News

Attention all juniors considering applying for the Governor’s Scholars Program. The clock is ticking. You only have 15 days left to turn in your application to Mr. Ward in T125. No applications will be accepted after 3 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 11th, no exceptions. Remember that you need a hard copy of your completed application, a digital copy of the completed application on a flash drive or CD, and hard copies of your teacher and community recommendations. And speaking of recommendations, don’t wait until the last moment to approach teachers and community persons. The more time you give a person to write it, the better the recommendation will be. Remember that only English, Math, Science, Social Studies and World Language teachers can do the teacher recommendation, and they must be teachers you have had in class so far in high school. Get those recommendations completed this week! Application and recommendation forms can be downloaded at See Mr. Ward in T125 if you have any questions.

Don’t let your words get you in trouble! Stop by Mr. Greenwell’s room S355 after school Monday through Thursday to work on your writing! Need help reviewing a paper? Trouble with grammar or MLA format? Let Mr. Greenwell help. That’s room S355 after school.

Tuesday is All Saints Day, a holy day of obligation in the Catholic Church. Trinity will not be having an all-school liturgy, but students are encouraged to attend mass in our Chapel at 7:20 before school or during advising.

In the afternoon, students can come to the Chapel after TTV and should arrive by 2:15. Campus Ministry will give you a pass to return to your Advising. Again, Mass will be offered on All Saints Day, Tuesday, in the chapel at 7:20 am and during Advising.
