Trinity Memo 10.25.21


Tuesday, October 19, marks the end of the first quarter. Report cards will be emailed to parents no later than noon on Wednesday, October 27.

Picture day is on Wednesday for freshmen through juniors.

We will have a 2:30 dismissal on Thursday.

The Jostens representative plans to stop at Trinity next Monday, November 1, to visit with sophomores (class rings) and seniors (graduation cap & gowns).


The staff thanks all the parents who could attend conferences last week and work with our bell-less system. We trust that parents benefitted as the staff did as we seek to educate our covenant young people.

Several of our teachers enjoyed an extremely profitable teachers convention last Thursday and Friday. One could go on a long time about the virtues of this year’s convention as it had several highlights. Chiefly, teachers were encouraged and exhorted to be faithful to the purpose of why we have our own Protestant Reformed schools. It was a very worthwhile convention.

Plan now to attend our second ever alumni basketball games on Friday, November 5. Beginning at 6:00 pm, our 2021-2022 girls team will take on former TCHS girls’ team members. A boys game will follow around 7:30 involving the 2021-2022 team playing TCHS players from the past. Make sure to come hungry as the senior class will be cooking up some delicious concessions. Please mark this event on your calendars and plan now to attend as we welcome our former players back to TCHS!

Advanced Notice: The Freshman class will be hosting a fundraiser at the Hull Pizza Ranch on Monday, November 8, from 5 to 7 p.m. Plan to come out and support the Freshman class of 2025!

The volleyball team’s season came to a close this past Wednesday night against #2 ranked Gehlen Catholic.  The girls worked extremely hard and fought for every point, but in the end fell short.

The Cross Country team members (Boys and Girls) ran their district meet on Thursday afternoon at Holstein country club.  Many of the runners set personal best records or came very close to their personal best times.  Carter Westra was the first of our boys’ team, coming in 32nd of 107 runners.  The boys team placed #13.  Keahna Heynen, Trinity’s lone female runner, placed #44 of 87 runners.   This also concludes the season for the 2021 Cross Country team.

One other extra-curricular activity this past Saturday was the Iowa All-State Music Auditions.  There were 4 students that auditioned for either chorus, band, or orchestra.  Belle Schiermeyer was selected on Violin to participate in the Iowa All State orchestra.  Brooke Meyer was selected on Clarinet to participate in the Band. She is Trinity’s first Freshmen to reach this achievement.   Evan De Jong auditioned on Trombone and is listed as a 1st alternate for the Band.  Jacob Kuiper also auditioned for the All state chorus.  He made the final round of recalls but was not selected for the chorus.  Both Evan and Jacob reached a point in the audition process that no other male Trinity auditionee had reached in the past.

Congratulations to all these athletes and musicians on their achievements and accomplishments.   They have represented Trinity Christian very well.  May they continue to develop and use these gifts that God has given them and use them to His Glory!
