On March 3rd, thirteen members of the Trinity middle school speech team competed at the annual speech tournament hosted by Valley Catholic school. This event gathered over 400 middle school contestants from around the Portland/Vancouver region. The students have 3 rounds in which they compete: Round 1: elocution (a memorized, prepared speech), Round 2: extemporaneous (reading a selection of literature out loud with only a few minutes to prepare), and Round 3: impromptu (writing and presenting a speech on a topic with only 10 minutes to prepare). We are proud of all our participants who spent hours preparing, memorizing and perfecting their skills in these areas. The team brought home 6 trophies in recognition of the excellence in which they performed. It was a grand day for Trinity Academy!
With a team of seven, Trinity Academy wins three trophies at the Valley Catholic Speech Tournament. Over 385 students competed in the 49th annual tournament. Well done, articulate speakers!
Addie won 2nd place in the Humorous category for 8th grade. James won 3rd place in 6th grade's Serious category. Claire won Honorable Mention in 8th grade's Patriotic category.
The 7th and 8th graders have been working hard on their respective insect and tree projects for weeks. With projects due this week, parents and all students are invited to come view the projects on Tuesday, October 13th 3:00-3:30 pm at the school. Come see what our junior high students have been finding and learning!
On September 25, Trinity Academy headed out for a day's adventure to Tree to Tree Aerial Adventure Park in Gaston, Oregon! Students, teachers, and parents challenged themselves on six courses of varying difficulty consisting of balance beams, tight ropes, zip lines, wobbly bridges, and more. We all enjoyed cheering for everyone and watching each other conquer the courses. Check out our photos from Tree to Tree!
