Dear Trinity South Learning Community,
April’s PSSA testing brings May’s student fun in the sun at Trinity South! Now that most of our testing is out of the way, and all the hard work throughout the school year is finishing up, it’s time to play hard in the month of May! I am so proud of all our students here at South, they have worked so hard all year long, and hard work pays off. We have so many exciting field trips and activities to look forward to during May and June!
I want to thank Trinity South parents for your continued support of our students, teachers, and school as we collectively strive to provide optimal opportunities for learning each and every day. The PFC will be hosting a fundraiser at Rita’s Ice on Thursday, May 12 from 6pm – 8pm. We will have some celebrity guests from South serving pure deliciousness at Rita’s!
