Dear Families, 

This is a friendly reminder that the HTH School Showcase (formally 'Curriculum Night') will be taking place tonight from 7:00pm - 8:00pm. Doors will open at 6:50 and families will be asked to make their way to our Gymnasium. Following a brief presentation by the administration, families will have an opportunity to chat with teachers, visit some specialty areas in our school, or get a bite to eat at our BBQ. Monetary donations will be accepted throughout the night in support of our School Breakfast Program.

In addition to our teaching staff we will also be joined by some members of our support staff, as well as the community partners who will be working with our school teams. These include Thrive, Planned Parenthood, Key Assets, Quadrangle,  and other members of our Comprehensive School Health Team. Attached to this reminder is a video from our Health Promotion Consultant- Sexual Health, Jennifer Slade, regarding our High School Sexual Health program. In addition to this, we've also attached information on safe Social Media use, provided by the NLESD.

Dear Families, 

Please see the following reminders and announcements. If necessary, please engage in a discussion with your child regarding the items noted here. 

HTH School Showcase and BBQ (Thursday, September 21st @ 7PM)  - Formally known as 'Curriculum Night', families of students are invited to Holy Trinity High on Thursday, September 21st for a school showcase and community BBQ. This night will focus on meeting your child's teachers, making connections with community groups supporting our school, and experiencing learning activities happening at HTH! A BBQ will be ongoing throughout the night with donations collected to support our Breakfast program.

HTH Picture Day (Friday, September 22nd) - School pictures for all students will take place on Friday. Please note, this is separate from our grade 12 graduation pictures which will take place at a later date.  

School Council Meeting (Thursday, September 28th) - Our first school council meeting of the 2023/2024 school year will take place on Thursday, September 28th. Additional information will be sent to interested family and community members by Tuesday, September 19th. Seats are open for both community and parent representatives. 

Return Student Forms Families are reminded to please ensure student demographic, media consent and Acceptable Use of Technology forms are returned to the school. If families have questions, they can reach out to their child's homeroom teacher.

Attendance, Timely Arrival for Class and Extended Absences from Class - With the first full week of our school year over and most schedules finalized, members of the administration will be following up with students who are  absent/late unexcused for their classes, or absent from class for extended periods of time. Attendance data will be reviewed on a weekly basis and students may be assigned detention if they are late for five (5) or more classes. Additionally, students may be assigned detention if they are spending an unnecessary amount of time in our hallways during classes.  

We ask that families please have a conversation with their child regarding the importance of arriving and attending their classes. Parents and guardians can review their child's attendance using the PowerSchool App.

Dear Families, 

In an effort to keep you informed about what is happening at Holy Trinity High School the administrative team will occasionally send out reminders. Typically these will be through email and delivered on Monday morning. When you receive these messages, we ask that you review the information carefully and discuss necessary information with your child. 

Media Consent, Demographic Information and Acceptable Technology Use
Homeroom teachers have now distributed media consent, demographic information and Acceptable Technology Use forms. We ask that you please review the demographic information and note any changes, and read/sign our media consent and acceptable technology use forms. These items should be returned to your child's homeroom teacher no later than Friday, September 15th.

Important Dates

Course Change Requests (Grade 10, 11 and 12)
Members of the administration and guidance teams are processing course change requests this week. To date we have received ~150 requests and we ask that students and their families are patient as we work through the process. Priority for requests is given to our grade 12 students for graduation and post-secondary program requirements. All other requests will be processed once we have ensured all students are enrolled in courses required for graduation. Due to the volume of submissions, requests which have been sent by email will not be addressed at this time. 

Grade 9 Class Requests
This year, as we are no longer required to cohort students, HTH is returning to our practice of creating diverse student groupings that include both English and French Immersion students for Mathematics, English Physical Education, Home Economics, and Art classes. Because of this your child may notice that some of their peers change for these classes. While we recognize that this may be a new experience for our grade 9 students, this is designed as part of the transition to a high school schedule. If your child is struggling with the beginning of their school year, we ask that you encourage them to reach out to a member of our guidance team (Amy Small - or Catherine Strong -
