Published November 1, 2022
The Schools of the Week spotlight is on Trinity Elementary and Ravenwood High this week. Take a look at the photo galleries below to see some of the fun going on in each school building, and see quotes from employees and students about what makes their school great.
"I love Trinity because everyone is so welcoming. This is my first year here, and I can't say enough about all the great people." - TES math interventionist Tara Henry
"My favorite thing about Trinity Elementary is that I get to go to science class. I like science class because we get to do activities." - TES fifth grader Brighton Edwards
"I feel like Ravenwood is unique and special because of the support it has in place for teachers and students. It is comforting knowing that I work with a group of people who will help support my students and me in any way possible." - RHS teacher Megan Holloway
"My favorite thing about Ravenwood High is that I have all these opportunities that I didn't have. I moved here one year ago, and now I have all these opportunities to discover my interests and get experience in the field. The teachers are really friendly, and I'm able to learn more about the fields I'm interested in." - RHS senior Sesha Saravanan
Trinity Elementary students and their families had a blast at the annual Romp N Stomp fundraiser on Friday, October 28.
With inflatables, games, pony rides and more, there was something for guests of all ages. The event is a tradition at the school, and it helps bring the community together, says TES principal Dr. Lauren Bauer.
"Romp N Stomp is our annual PTO community festival," said Bauer. "They had tons of really fun activities and vendors for families to visit and enjoy. The PTO really outdid themselves this year, and a huge thank you goes out to them."
In Ravenwood High teacher Hannah Burns' computer-aided design (CAD) class, students are learning about building plans and construction.
As part of their latest project, students are working to replicate a floor plan on a miniature scale using small pieces of balsa wood. This gives them the opportunity to practice reading and following blueprints.
"My favorite part about this project is when they start to put the walls up," Burns said. "Then it really starts to look like a house, and it all comes together."
