End of Year Wrap Up

Wow! I cannot believe that the year has come and gone. I walked into the school building this morning and it was so quiet! No happy children learning noises at all!

We have accomplished so much this year. Our students have grown in stature and maturity. Our teachers have grown in number and knowledge. Our enrollment has grown, our enthusiasm is soaring!

On Thursday, May 26, we celebrated our Lower School students at awards day. Highlights included:

The Citizenship Award given to Violet Anderson, Bells Martin, Caiden Showalter, Perry Watson and Ryan Weis.
The President’s Education Award, signed by Barack Obama, was given to Abby White.
The Spirit of Trident awarded to a student who demonstrates the following characteristics: kind & caring, givens back to the community, a good friend to others has an exuberant enthusiasm for learning and perseveres. This year’s Lower School recipient is Abby Jones

We also graduated our first senior since 2012: Russell Graham Jenkins. Russell is enrolled in a program at Trident Tech for Welding. We are excited for him as he begins a new chapter in his life.

As we look forward to a fun filled summer we are asking our students to consider helping us design our new playground. Stephan Hoyer is in the process of purchasing our property and will be building a new playground for us. He wants to involve our students and families as well as children and families in the neighborhoods surrounding the school. We’ll be sending out more information about this exciting opportunity shortly!

I wish you all a safe and healthy summer vacation!
