The Trinity Robotics bzBots competed in the Western Iowa Regional Championship in Omaha on Saturday. After equipment issues left the team in last place out of 24 teams after the first round of competition, the team rallied back to finish in first place at the end of the sixth round of qualifying matches. The bzBots lost the semifinal round, but still qualified for the Iowa state championship because of our ranking at the end of qualification and because the team won the Control Award. This is the second time the team has won the Control Award, which is based on the robot’s programming and use of sensors, as well as the team’s engineering portfolio and presentation to the judges. The state championship will be held on March 3 and 4, 2023 in Coralville, Iowa.

The 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament, hosted by the HPRCS Guild, is scheduled for Friday, March 10, starting at 4 PM.

Memo 1.16.23

Trinity-Memo-1.16.23

Mrs. Alissa Van Maanen has signed the contract for our remedial position and has already started her labors! We give thanks to have a veteran teacher of her caliber, in addition to her great love for students, to join our high school environment.

This Friday, January 20, is the last day to add or drop a class for the second semester. To add or drop a course, students must complete the green form and have a parent’s signature.

It is January, so some of our focus turns to the 2023-2024 school year already. Teachers are completing ‘Letters of Intent’ to help the Board plan for our staffing needs. Also, the Board passed a motion to offer Mr. Regnerus an administrator contract for next year. Please remember the Board and staff as we prayerfully seek God’s will for next year.

The 2:30 dismissals of the second semester have been removed from the calendar as we seek to make up lost instruction time from the many snow days.

The freshman and sophomore classes are organizing a lasagna supper and volleyball tournament (co-ed teams of 6, high school and older, $10/person) for Friday evening, January 20, with supper starting at 5:00 P.M. and volleyball beginning at 6:00 P.M.  All are invited to the event to eat lasagna and ice cream, watch volleyball, and enjoy good fellowship. Volleyball tournament teams must register by Thursday, January 19. Contact Sara Huisken (shuisken@trinitychs.org) or Rochelle Bloemendaal (rbloemendaal@trinitychs.org) to sign up for this exciting fundraising event and for more information.

J-Term has been re-scheduled for February 22-24.

A hearty thanks to our sub sandwich donor. The students and staff loved it! We’re pretty sure the moms did also!

The Pizza Ranch would like to make amends for the oven malfunction that threw off our dining schedule last Friday. They promise a treat of some sort is headed our way this week.

Hot Lunch Served at 11:45 AM; 12:05 on Chapel/Assembly Days) Please provide your own plates & napkins; silverware provided. There are 77 students, 9 Faculty. Reminder: please send in the menu by 8 a.m. on Monday.
