Trinity Girls on the Run

Congratulations Trinity Girls on the Run!

On Saturday, Trinity 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students who participated in Girls on the Run this fall joined with girls from schools through Howard and Carroll counties in their season culminating 5K. The girls did an excellent job, and we are so proud of their hard work, positive attitudes, and perseverance. We were blessed with a break in the rainy weather for just about the exact amount of time it took to set up, run, and clean up the race, so for that we are very grateful! We had a season full of fun, balanced with learning and preparation for the 5K, and we are looking forward to another great season this spring!

Way to go Trinity tigers - Emily, Ava, Zorah, Makenzie, Melania, Audrey, Caitlin, Delaney, Kate, Konner, Madison, and Savannah! You were awesome!

What is Girls on the Run? Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

Trinity School Virtue of the Month for December: Tolerance

December is a good time of the year to practice tolerance.
Tolerance is respecting the dignity and rights of others – even those whose beliefs and behaviors are different from our own.

We may not agree with others, but we must respect differences.
 Tolerant people say:

“Hey stop it. You’re putting her down.”

“It’s hurtful to make fun of how people look.”

“That’s not funny.  It pokes fun at his race.”

“Why don’t you let him be on the team?  So what if he’s never hit a ball before.”

 Tolerant people:

·         Refuse to take part in activities that make fun of people because they’re different.

·         Don’t laugh at jokes that make unkind remarks about a person’s race, religion, culture or size.

·         Stand up for someone who is being put down or ridiculed.

·         Refuse to exclude someone because she/he is different or not as experienced at something as others.

·         Get into the habit of saying only positive and kind things about others.

 It takes self-control to be TOLERANT.
