What does Trinity mean to me?

For me, Trinity means family. We are a close-knit group of parents, grandparents, students, staff, and volunteers.  Trinity is a place where God’s grace abounds. We value teamwork in striving towards our overall mission of “…showing the way to the Water of Life” – Jesus. We exemplify effectiveness in education.  We have a lot of flexibility at Trinity to teach the way kids learn. Trinity, for me, is a progressive gem of a school that points the way to Jesus.

What does Trinity mean to me?

Trinity to me is a home away from home. It is a place where strangers have turned into a family. It is a place where the love of Christ surrounds all who enter its doors. It is a place that has taught me so much and has helped me grow and develop. Trinity is more than a church and school. It is a community filled with people who are passionate about helping others reach their fullest potential. Trinity is a place where anyone can feel welcome, and everyone can succeed.

What does Trinity mean to me?

Trinity to me means family.  The love, care, and encouragement that have been shown to me over the last 33 years have been tremendous!  I feel that Trinity has become my family and I, in return, have become part of the Trinity family. I have not only watched little ones grow and develop into wonderful adults, but I have been mentored by some wonderful Christ-centered adults who have helped me grow and develop as a teacher, friend, and sister in Christ.  Trinity is truly a Christian family within a unique setting, sharing the love of Christ with all in the community.
