Update on School District Water Testing
Please see attached letter from Dr. Osborne outlining the latest water testing results for district schools.
I am thrilled to begin my fifth year as the principal of The Trinity Elementary School. Our goal is to continue to provide an enriched learning environment where all our learners can achieve success in reaching their fullest potential.
We have a talented dedicated staff who are collectively and individually committed to bringing out the best in every student. Our classrooms are designed to be a safe learning environment that supports the "critical c's" of Collaboration, Cooperation and Communication. In celebrating our diversity, we recognize that all members of our community have much to contribute and gain by learning from each other.
I encourage you to learn more about our school by pursuing our web site. You may reach us at (914) 576-4440.
I want to wish you and your family and exciting 2016-2017 school year.
Donna DiMaio Rooney visited Trinity Elementary School on Monday, October 17 th to read her newly published children’s chapter book, DANI and the Day the Bully Changed Everything, to third and fourth grades students.
The author actively engaged students during her presentation, introducing “Dee Dee the Dog” to emphasize the power of words and the importance of showing compassion to others
Students were able to talk about bullying and their personal experiences while coming up with ideas on how to unite against bullying.
Please wear the color ORANGE on Wednesday, October 19th to take a stand against bullying!
October is Bullying Prevention Month. During this month, students learn about the definition of bullying and they learn to work together to take a stand against bullying. Bullying is when someone repeatedly and on purpose says or does mean or hurtful things to another person who has a hard time defending himself or herself. You know its bullying when it is done on purpose, it happens over and over again and the bully is bigger and/or older than you. Bullies use unkind words to hurt your feelings, they sometimes use their hands and feet to hurt you, they may seclude you from a group, and some even use computers or phones to send you hurtful messages. If you know someone who is being bullied, it’s important for you to tell an adult at school and an adult at home.

We need to live with ourselves, our neighbors and all members of the international community; we believe that education must help individuals know themselves, understand their world, and believe in cooperation and mutual respect. It is important that our students examine and appreciate their own characters, that they be open and sensitive to the relationships with others and that they learn to demonstrate an active concern for their neighborhoods and for the world at large. Such goals are both ambitious and vital; we must each aim at them through a lifetime of learning and growth. To help students love learning, so they can happily undertake such a life, we must foster a concern with why, and not just what, they are learning. We are committed to the belief that learning to know ourselves deeply, care about others, and accept education as a never-ending process occurs best when we are held responsible for our actions yet feel secure enough to take risks. We, therefore, aim to be challenging and demanding, yet nurturing and individualized.
Our philosophy is based on the needs and characteristics of our students and staff. We focus on meeting the special needs and interests of all students. Along with a solid academic background, there are several important traits which we hope our students will develop. These include a love of learning, a positive self-image and a sense of personal responsibility. We hope that in all ways, we as an elementary school, will be characterized by cooperation, caring and an open sharing of ideas and feelings. Always the assumption in our concept at Trinity is that each student is special and that all students are capable of learning.
