Gathering of the Harvest

Oct. 29 – Nov. 2 to benefit the Salvation Army Food Pantry

As we approach the holiday season, we have a wonderful opportunity to teach our children that it is more blessed to give than to receive.  Out of a thankful heart for the many blessings we receive from the Father, we can (and are commanded to) give to those who are less fortunate than we.

Each year, Trinity Christian Academy collects food to help support the Salvation Army of Lexington’s Food Pantry. The Salvation Army has a long history of providing assistance to anyone in need.  Here in Lexington, in addition to the Food Pantry they also offer a homeless shelter for women and children, counseling, an Early Learning Center, and other services.  

Trinity will be gathering food from Monday, Oct. 29 through Friday, Nov. 2. Every Lower School family will be designated as a Pilgrim or an Indian. We always have a lot of fun competing against one another to see which group wins by bringing in the most items. All donated items need to be clearly marked with a “P” for Pilgrim and an “I” for Indian so that they can be counted correctly and assigned to the right team.

Pilgrims and Indians List

Below you will find a list of food items needed. To get us off to the right start, all food items brought in on Monday will count DOUBLE points! Let’s give generously with cheerful hearts and to the glory of our Lord!

Most Needed Items:

  • Canned meats (tuna, chicken, Spam, etc.)
  • Peanut Butter
  • Beans (dried or canned)
  • Soup
  • Canned fruit
  • Canned vegetables
  • Macaroni & Cheese, and other “Helper” type mixes
  • Pasta
  • Spaghetti Sauce

*For food safety reasons, opened or expired items cannot be accepted.*

Please mark all items with your team designation (‘P’ for Pilgrim, ‘I’ for Indian). If you are unsure of your assigned team, refer to the Monday Memo.

Don’t forget that donations brought in Monday, 10/29 count for DOUBLE POINTS!

Trinity Receives Commissioner’s Cup!

Trinity Wins Commissioner’s Cup for 2017-18 Athletics

If you followed Trinity’s athletic teams last year, you know we had an outstanding year in so many areas. The National Athletic Association of Private Schools (NAAPS) took notice, and the organization has awarded Trinity the Commissioner’s Cup in our division for the 2017-18 athletic year! The Commissioner’s Cup recognizes overall excellence in private school athletics and is considered the most prestigious award an athletic program can win.

We will celebrate with an award presentation at the Lower School at 5:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 5, during our Fall Festival, part of our Homecoming week activities.

At the end of the athletic calendar, each NAAPS member will have their top two scores from both male and female sports calculated. One school from each classification, with the highest total points from all four sports, will be awarded the Commissioner’s Cup for that school year. 

Point totals are earned when a private school is ranked in the final national rankings of any NAAPS sanctioned sport, national championship, All-Americans, All-Region, and state award winners.
