Spring Formal Date and U.S. Schedule

Attention all Upper School Students and Parents:

Our High School (9th-12th grades) Spring Formal venue and date have been changed due to a scheduling conflict on the part of the original venue. Trinity organizers were not at fault for this conflict, and the problem was just communicated to Trinity in early March. Kudos to the Student Council for quickly making other plans!

We are excited to announce that our new Spring Formal venue is the Lexington Country Club on Tuesday, April 11!  More details to come on menu options. We still plan to have a photographer, dinner, music, and dancing, and we expect to have a grand evening!

We recognize that a midweek dinner and dance is unusual timing for a student event and a weekend evening would be preferred. We exhausted many different options and the decision was made that this venue on this date would give our students the best experience.

Since the formal is now on Tuesday, April 11, all middle school and high school students will be dismissed at 1:00 pm that day.  On Wednesday, April 12, school will begin with Chapel at 9:45 am.

Please note that Friday, April 21, the original date for the formal, will be a regular school day instead of a half day.

See “Screenagers” at Trinity March 7

Are your children scrolling through life with rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston discovered that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time.

In “Screenagers,” Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics, and internet addiction. Through poignant and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, “Screenagers” reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.

Join the Trinity community for a viewing of “Screenagers” at 7 pm, Tuesday, March 7, at the Lower School campus in the Fellowship Hall. This event is free. For
