This fall, students at Trinity Academy have a wide variety of after-school enrichment programs to choose from to further their academic and extracurricular talents.
A running club is being offered to help students prepare for the 2nd Annual 5K Reindeer Run/Walk, scheduled for Dec. 1. An accomplished marathoner will bring her expertise to teach the course, which will include the basics of running a 5K, as well as proper stretching technique, warm-up drills, relays and other running games.
In addition, students may enjoy Bricks4kids, which will teach principles and methods of engineering, architecture and physics using Legos™.
Trinity is also happy to offer fencing, a new class for students in grades 3-8 taught by the Lilov Fencing Academy. The program will introduce students to the classical sport of fencing through the use of fencing related strategy games, practice bouting, drills and competitions.
Finally, to help eighth graders prepare for the Cooperative Admission Examination Program (COOP), which is mandatory for all students seeking enrollment in a Catholic high school, an enrichment course will provide a thorough review of test taking strategies and techniques, sample questions and basic math overview.
These enrichment classes will enable Trinity students to explore new activities, and challenge both their bodies and minds.
