“The good God can give more than our minds can conceive.  Trust Him.”

-St. Julie Billiart

 St. Julie Billiart, foundress of   the Sisters of Notre Dame de   Namur, said, “Nothing happens by chance; it is always the  disposition of the good God.”   It is not by random assignment or coincidence that the Holy Spirit has called each student, parent, faculty, staff,   administrator, and/or Board member to Trinity at this time.  Our alumni and donors are also a significant part of our rich legacy.  And it is only in the collective that we can bring our mission statement to life:

 

 “Trinity is a Catholic, independent, Pre-K, Primary and Middle School, affiliated with   the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, whose mission is to make God’s goodness known.   



It is a 
place where children learn to love learning.  We educate children for life providing them with an excellent academic program rooted in Gospel values within a caring, faith-filled environment. Students’ God-given gifts are cultivated for responsible leadership and service.”

This year we celebrate 80 years of this mission.  In 1941, while the United States was struggling to stay out of another world war, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur opened the high and elementary schools to serve this community then known as Ilchester.  The Sisters looked forward to a bright, faith-filled future of making God’s goodness known and 

educating young women and children for life.  And for this we are blessed. 

 

As the faculty, staff, and administration, continue the work the Sisters started 80 years ago, we will participate in professional development that nourishes us spiritually and directly impacts student learning.  Mrs. Meg Sharp, Director of Mission Integration - Ohio Province, and Dr. Maggie Hubbard, consultant for Academy for Catholic Educators, Notre Dame of Maryland University, will lead us in our work.  Our three professional development opportunities this year are:

 

  • Formation in the Hallmarks of a Notre Dame school
  • Utilizing Scantron standardized testing data to inform instruction, student mastery,

    and growth

  • Enhancing student math mastery using standards-based instruction

 

In addition, we, as a school community in collaboration with the Board of Trustees, will begin working on our next strategic plan to ensure a viable and sustainable future for Trinity School.  We are blessed to have Dr. Cathy Spencer, former assistant Superintendent for Schools in the Archdiocese of Washington, to facilitate the process. 

 

I look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead and continue to draw inspiration and strength from the spirit and charism of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.  We are united in our commitment to creating a place where children are nurtured as they learn to love learning.  In the words of St. Julie Billiart, “Peace and union of hearts, that is the bond of all the earth.”

 

Peace - Ms. K. Marguerite Conley, Principal
