September

Back to School Picnic: Join the faculty, staff and Trinity families for this fun and relaxing event as we all get ready for the start of the new school year.

First Day of School Opening Chapel: This event marks the beginning of the new school year and all families are welcome to join their Trinity students.

Back-to-School Night: Parents Only. This is an opportunity to get to know the teachers, learn about the curriculum, and find out about class room expectations. This is also the first Parent Association meeting of the year to learn about what’s happening at Trinity.

Annual Giving: Annual Giving is an important event for independent schools. It provides the funds that add the “sparkle” to our educational program. The funds raised are used for programmatic enhancements and/or smaller capital improvements. Annual Giving bridges the gap between tuition income and the actual cost of the excellent educational program we want for our students. The Annual Giving Drive begins in the fall of the year and all donations to Annual Giving are tax deductible.

In the Streets: This is held in downtown Frederick. Our booth is a marketing and art project opportunity for families outside of the community to get to know us.

In the Lower School, class parents organize the class parties. The Middle School party is organized by the Middle School room-parent team and includes students in grades six, seven, and eight.
