Spotlight: Fall Gala

For the 19th consecutive year, Trinity Catholic Schools will hold its annual Fall Gala, and this year's theme is "Prost!" which is a German-inspired, Octoberfest-type theme, that is sure to be a hit in our great community!  Our talented group of volunteers have been hard at work planning this amazing event since last fall.  

The Fall Gala is a major fundraiser for Trinity Catholic Schools, and provides a great opportunity for Titan parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends to connect and enjoy a wonderful evening of fellowship, great German food, and connection with the Titan Family.  Monsignor James Shea, former THS Chaplain and current President of the University of Mary will be our Master of Ceremonies, Those of you who know him know how entertaining he is - and you won't want to miss it!

Would you like to get involved?  We need volunteers to do things like class projects, setup, cleanup, ask for donations/sponsorships, and more!  Some volunteer jobs take one hour, some take several - either way, we welcome all of your time and talents to this group.  Email or contact Lisa Roers (lisa@roers.com)if you're interested in volunteering.  Not sure about getting involved?  You can attend!  Click here to purchase your ticket.  Saturday October 12 is a great day - and we begin with Holy Mass to meet your Sunday obligation.  

We are so very blessed to have this rich tradition in our vibrant culture.  It's just another reason that it's a great day to be a Titan! Prost!

  • We are in need of bus drivers!  Our great volunteers help tremendously by transporting students for Holy Masses, concert practices, sporting events, and more.  It's a great way to interact with the kids and help our Titan Family.  Bus drivers must have a CDL - you do not need an air brake endorsement unless you plan to drive the charter.  
  • Need some new Titan gear?  Check out our newly updated Titan Emporium Online Store!  You can pick up at Logo Magic, or ship it to our out-of-town Titans!
  • Trinity Catholic Schools is hiring!  We are looking for a 4th grade teacher, 6th grade teacher, Fall TEC aides, and a full-time custodian.  Click here to view open positions.

Titan Summer TEC News

We are celebrating sports week!  We made basketball decorations and football helmets, and did sports trivia.  We also learned about the importance of nutrition for athletes, and colored a plate of our favorite healthy foods.  Our trip to the Dakota Zoo was a blast!  We say goodbye to Mrs. Hilton this week, as she will be preparing for her new role teaching Titan Tots.  Good luck, Mrs. Hilton, and thanks for a fun summer!
