  • Parents - if you do not have (or do not remember) your PowerSchool log in, please contact Pam in the main office at 701.483.6081.  We also highly recommend that you download the PowerSchool app - it is quite handy!
  • Grades 7-12 will begin "Great Teams" and "Late Start Wednesdays" on August 28!
  • Grades K through 6 will begin "Kindness Lessons" in September.  Parents - please ask your elementary students about how they will be focusing on our Core Value of "Kindness" over the course of the 2019-2020 school year.
  • A friendly reminder - Titan Parents, your children, be they seniors or preschool students, will be bringing home lots of important papers in the coming weeks as school begins.  Please ensure you are taking a look at this information on a regular basis!
  • Thank you to Trinity Elementary PTO for providing a coffee treat for our elementary faculty and staff on their professional development day!  
  • Parents, as you drop off your children in the morning, please understand that our doors do not open until 7:45.  Teachers officially begin their day at 7:55, but often come in early for preparation.  Please be respectful of our teachers, and drop off at 7:45 a.m. or later.  Also - please do not park in no-parking zones, especially blocking the parish rectories and residences.  Thank you!
  • During the school year, if your child(ren) should need medication, you must fill out a medication authorization form.  Forms are available at all offices.  
  • We hope to have nice weather for a while, and as a reminder, students may wear shorts in August, September, and October.  Check out Logo Magic or the Gently Used Standard Dress room on the 3rd floor at THS if you need to stock up!
  • Students are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school daily, and elementary students can bring a healthy, nut-free snack.  Click here for a list of snack ideas.
  • As we look to our first full week next week, we have 3 beautiful feast days: the Memorial of St. Monica (8/27), the Memorial of St. Augustine (8/28), and the Memorial of the Passion of St. John the Baptist (8/29).  These are beautiful opportunities to pray for our students and our teachers.  A great prayer to use is the Prayer for my Child's Teacher, found here.
  • Lessons with Fr. Bill will begin next week!  Our Trinity Elementary West students are so blessed to have this great opportunity for interaction with Fr. Bill Ruelle!
