Programs

 

Student Council

The mission of  Trinity Catholic Academy Student Council is to represent the student body during social events, to act as a bridge between students and faculty, and to assist during school events.

Student Council is offered to students in grades 5-8 and  are elected to be class representatives or officers.  They create programs that are fun and community building.

Halloween is our biggest program of the year for the entire Trinity community.  The students create a haunted house throughout the school with many games and candy treats at the end for grades Pre-K – 5.  A dance is held for students in grades 6-8.

Student Council offers  Family Movie Nights for families in grades Pre-K through 5 and dances for grades 6 through 8 throughout the year.  They create a Christmas tree for the Festival of “Giving” Trees, an annual fundraiser for breast cancer.

GIVE

GIVE Mission Statement

The mission of GIVE is to instill a sense of community and charity in our students by participating in community service projects that will help people in need.

GIVE (Get Involved Value Everyone) is a club that meets monthly.

Students in grades 6-8 are welcome to participate.

The purpose of the club is to encourage students to focus on needs in our community and get involved in projects to make a difference.

GIVE also fosters relationships among students of different ages.  Projects include making and donating hats, scarves, blankets, and rosary beads.

After School Program

The goal of the Trinity Catholic Academy After School Program is to provide a safe, stimulating and nurturing after school environment for students in grades PreK-8.  There are opportunities for teacher led as well as child initiated activities.  The space allows for homework, games, reading, and gym time.  This program is meant to enhance rather than duplicate the regular school day.

The Program follows the school calendar and  operates on days when school is in session excluding half-days,  early release days due to weather and special circumstances.

Faith in Action Team (FIAT)

FIAT Mission Statement

The Faith In Action Team encourages prayer and sharing of our faith in our school and our community.

FIAT strives to live and to teach others to live as Jesus taught us.

The Faith in Action Team (FIAT) is a group of students in grades 6-8 interested in sharing their faith and helping others. The goal of FIAT is to help all students live their faith by leading through example. This group leads the school in morning and afternoon prayer each day. They are also leaders for Trinity’s annual All School Retreat. FIAT meets every other week and works through the year providing help for various community programs. FIAT works on a food drive for St. John Paul II  Food Pantry each year.  During the holiday season, FIAT participates in St. John Paul II Parish Giving Tree program by raising money to go out and buy gifts for a family in need.

Students interested in becoming a member of FIAT submit a short essay explaining what gifts they feel they can bring to the group. Students must attend their church regularly (students need not be Catholic to be a member of FIAT), must have a strong moral conscience, and show some leadership qualities. Students must maintain a C or above average to remain a member of FIAT.

Choir

Trinity Catholic Academy is proud to sponsor one of the best children’s choirs in central Massachusetts.

As part of the afterschool program, students in grades 5-8 rehearse every Tuesday afternoon from 2:30-3:15pm. Students in grades 1-4 rehearse from 3:15-4:00pm. On certain days, both choirs rehearse together from 3:00-4:00pm on Tuesday afternoon when preparing for upcoming performances.

The choir sings at every all-school Mass as well as the Christmas program and other concerts as announced. The choir regularly performs throughout the area including local programs for community organizations, nursing homes, businesses and churches.

We also travel, most notably, to the Massachusetts State House to perform Christmas Carols. Our pride and joy is to sing annually at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Worcester for the Mass for Life for Catholic Schools each spring. We have also participated in singing the National Anthem for minor league sports teams in New England.

The choir performs a variety of styles of music and has done many musical dramatic productions. Students are encouraged to sing solos and many are able to play musical instruments.

If you are interested in having the choir sing for an event, please contact the director, Brandon Vennink.
