Special Days | Trinity Christian School

Special Days

All grade levels use several opportunities each year to complement their curriculum through hands-on learning experiences.  In addition to the trips and special days listed below each class visits Isothermal Community College for various plays and musicals.

Read-a-Thon
Trinity Christian School’s Read-a-thon is a much anticipated and much loved annual event.  It energizes our students for reading, brings exciting guest speakers to our campus, and gives our Trinity family and friends a remarkable opportunity to support and promote reading.

Grandparent’s Day

Each November we are honored to have our grandparents join us on campus for Grandparent’s Day.  During this day the grandparents spend time in the classrooms, enjoy a presentation by the student body, and have lunch with their grandchildren.  It is a wonderful day to share with our grandparents the many blessings that God has given us.

Pastor Appreciation
At Trinity we are so thankful for the pastors who serve our families and help teach our children to become spiritual leaders.  We show our appreciation for all they do by inviting them to join us on campus for a Pastor Appreciation Day.  The pastors come for part of the day and have the opportunity to visit classrooms, have refreshments, and fellowship together.

Field Day
Trinity Christian School has a unique Field Day experience!  Our students in pre-school-8th grade are heterogeneously grouped to represent one of the twelve tribes of Israel.  Field Day is looked forward to and anticipated all year long. The day consists of relay competitions between the students who are on split into different tribes. Each tribe has a tribe leader, which is a faculty member. The students and teachers let loose and enjoy competing against one another by using their abilities in a Christ-centered way.

At the end of the day, a trophy is presented to the tribe with the most points! It’s a special day at TCS!
