Trinity Memo 10.23.17


Today is the final day of the first marking period. Report Cards will be available on JMC by noon on Friday, Oct. 27.

This past Saturday Carlie Hoekstra, Olivia Laning, Rylee Waldner, and Meghan Zevenbergen made the trek to Storm Lake to audition for Iowa All-State Chorus and Band.  They all represented Trinity well with great auditions.  Congratulations to Carlie and Olivia for being selected to participate in the All-State chorus along with 598 other Iowa singers in Ames on November 18.  Carlie and Olivia have made Trinity history as our first students to be selected into the All-state chorus!

A representative of Northwestern College in Orange City will meet with interested seniors on Wednesday, Oct. 25.

A representative of Dordt College will meet with interested seniors on Thursday, Oct. 26.

School will dismiss at 2:30 on Thursday.

Students interested in taking the December 9 ACT are reminded of the Nov. 3 sign-up deadline.

Students are encouraged to continue their efforts on the activities of this month in celebration of the 500th anniversary of the great Reformation. Please continue to submit the names of faithful ministers on the Google document Mr. Huizenga has set up.

The Trinitarian Bible Society is sponsoring a program where our students can complete a quiz on the Reformation and then receive a free commemorative KJV Bible. Many students have the quiz already. There are more in the office available upon request. Completed quizzes should be returned to Mr. Regnerus by October 31.

General Announcements:

The Tigers volleyball enters into the second round of regional play tonight, Monday, October 23, against Kingsley-Pierson in Kingsley. That match will get started at 7:00; admission is $6.00.

The teachers had an enriching few days at the annual PRTI convention. The 2018 convention is scheduled to be at Heritage (MI), and there are tentative plans to host in Hull in 2019.

The staff and other interested personnel will receive A.L.I.C.E. training from the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday after school. A.L.I.C.E. training is designed to maximize student safety in the event of a crisis situation.

Have you ever wondered what Trinity does to help prepare students for life after high school? Start thinking about attending the Parents’ Circle Meeting Nov 1 to learn more. Mr. Regnerus will present. If you have specific questions you wish Mr. Regnerus to address concerning this topic, please email your questions to him at

From the Apparel Committee– We have 24 travel mugs for sale for $25 each commemorating the 10 years that Trinity has been in existence. The front of the mug has the original Trinity logo and the back has Psalm 16:6.  These are the double walled mugs (See picture at bottom of memo). They would make a nice gift as well.    If you would like one, you may stop in the school office or contact a committee member to purchase – Audrey Meyer, Bonnie Van Engen and Lisa De Boer.

Do you have an instrument that you love playing, but no opportunity to play in a band?  Are you in college and playing in band?  Well, we have the opportunity for you!  Trinity Chr. High band invites alumni and post-high supporters to join with the high school students for 2 numbers to be played at our December 11 concert here at Trinity.  If you are interested or need more information please contact Laura Kuiper at and let her know what instrument you play.  We will need to set up a few rehearsals, but that will be determined later after we find a workable time for everyone.  Mrs. Kuiper will get music to you as soon as possible so that you can get your lips and fingers back in shape.
