Student Ambassadors

A select group of students are chosen from the eighth grade to represent Trinity Academy in a positive, helpful, respectful, and enthusiastic manner. All members are selected because of their interest in promoting Trinity Academy’s academic programs and representing the school at organized events.

Ambassadors participate in several advancement events such as information sessions, movie nights, family socials, and back-to-school night. They provide tours to prospective families and students during information sessions as well as personal visits to the school. Student ambassadors provide knowledge about the school and share their perspective about the quality of the education they receive as well as their academic experience at Trinity Academy. They can assist prospective students in making an informed decision about choosing to attend Trinity Academy.

The Trinity Academy Student Ambassador program allows responsible students a chance to be involved in functions and activities, as well as meeting new people and building tight knit friendships.

Student Council

The Student Council is a great opportunity for students to express leadership and community involvement skills. It is made up of students ranging from grades 3-8. Each grade has a class representative. Our younger classes (Kindergarten to 2nd Grade) are represented by a 7th or 8th grade student, while 3rd through 8th grade are represented by a student from within that class. To run for the position of President, Vice President, Secretary, or Treasurer, a candidate must be in eighth grade. Each 8th grade student running for an officer position is required to give a brief speech. This gives them the opportunity to explain why they would be a good choice to represent the school. All representatives and officers are elected in September .

Student Council meets monthly after school to discuss different topics ranging from hosting school functions, such as dances and contests, to building a stronger school community.Meetings are attended by representatives, our Principal, Sister Margaret McCullough, IHM, and the faculty advisers, Mrs. Ellen Snyder and Mr. Mike Kowker.

Student Reporters

A middle school student reporter is selected based on his or her writing ability and sense of responsibility to submit a weekly column to the Hazleton Standard – Speaker newspaper. The “School Times” column highlights activities and events happening at elementary and high schools throughout the region.

Trinity Newsies

Middle school students are chosen based on their creativity and reliability to assist the Advancement Director with a bulletin board highlighting events at Marian Catholic High School, Hometown and Nativity BVM High School, Pottsville. Newsies are responsible for collecting and displaying newspaper articles about events taking place at Marian Catholic or Nativity BVM. The bulletin board, located in the upper hallway is a great way for students, and visitors to see all the great things happening happenings at our local catholic high schools.

Academic Bowl

The Academic Bowl is a CYO sponsored fun and challenging quiz game that tests 7th and 8th grade students on a wide variety of academic subjects. Students compete against other teams in our district. The team with the greatest number of wins will be declared the winner and move onto the Diocesan round.

Mathletics

Mathletics is a competition sponsored by Nativity BVM High School for 7th and 8th graders to heighten student interests in mathematics by making math achievement challenging and exciting.

Spelling Bee

Students in grades 6 though 8 have the opportunity to compete in a spelling bee sponsored by the Republican/Herald Newspaper as well as the Diocesan Spelling Bee. Students compete to see who will represent Trinity Academy at both of these bees.

Yearbook

8th graders, under the direction of their homeroom teacher, are encouraged to become actively involved with the creation of their school yearbook; providing them a sense of ownership and accomplishment in the finished product.

Library Aides

4th grade students under the guidance of their teacher meet once a week in the school library. The aides return books to their proper location and help keep the library neat and organized.
