Camp Invention is coming to BT in June of 2022

In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF), Blessed Trinity is pleased to offer the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering kindergarten through sixth grade. This exciting, weeklong summer adventure provides opportunities for open-ended, hands-on exploration of science, technology, engineering and more! Rotating through a variety of exciting activities each day, children have fun collaborating with friends, thinking creatively and inventing their own solutions to real-world challenges.


The week begins on June 13th with Silvia Kenna serving as Director. The all-new 2022 program will thrill both new and returning campers with an expedition full of far-reaching explorations, fascinating discoveries and exhilarating “a-ha” moments! Traditional program hours are 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 


During this dynamic, high-energy program, young innovators will:

  • Dive into cutting-edge ocean research as they adopt their own robotic fish, design and patent aquatic plants, and take their fish friend home in a mini tank.
  • Discover real space exploration technology when they create Spacepacks and Astro-Arm devices, mine an asteroid and observe erupting ice volcanoes.
  • Combine science and art to build their own robotic artist, engage in design thinking, make spin art and learn how inventions can change the way people create.
  • Experiment with the fun of physics, engineering and gaming as they design, build and test their own mega marble arcades.

Two of our Teachers Presented at a National Conference

Blessed Trinity Catholic School is proud to announce that two of our teachers were selected to present at the National Catholic Educational Association 2022 Convention. Mrs. Silvia Kenna and Mr. Gabriel Cambert presented "Engaging All Students Through Productive Talk" at the Convention this April for Catholic teachers and administrators from across the country. Their session focused on the instructional uses of productive classroom discussions across all grade levels and subject areas to empower students to find their voices, thereby constructing their own learning. We are so proud of their accomplishments and are blessed to have our school nationally represented!

Our Open House was a Success!

 

We look forward to welcoming our new families for the upcoming school year. Our Open House was a very important time to get to know these families and for them to get to know us.

In addition to our academic and extracurricular programs, one of the things that makes us stand out is the familial atmosphere, love, and personal attention we give each of our students and families.

Christmas Buddy Reading Fun

Christmas was celebrated on Wednesday, December 15th 2021 with a pajama day. We also had a buddy reading activity where students in grades 3rd - 8th were asked to bring in a Christmas book to read to their little buddy in the lower grades. They also brought in snacks and treats to share with their buddy. 

STREAM Day Guest Speaker & Artist Extraordinaire

We celebrated National STREAM DAY by dressing up as our favorite STREAM careers and representing our favorite STREAM disciplines. We were blessed to have a guest speaker, Natalie Plasencia Calvo, come speak to our students about her work as an artist. Natalie is a BTS alumna, parent, and parishioner. Her art may be found across many churches in our Archdiocese, and Natalie was recently featured in the Florida Catholic. Today she shared how her art is created through the lens of religion and involves much science and math. Thank you Natalie, @natalieplasenciafineart, for your beautiful testimony to the power of STREAM as a force for good.
 

Notre Dame Senior STEM Fellows

This past summer, our school's STREAM team - Melissa Dietz, Gabriel Cambert, and Silvia Kenna - traveled back to the University of Notre Dame campus for the STEM Trustey Fellowship Capstone Program. During this time, they experienced authentic STEM-integrated lessons, delved deeper into institutional equity work, and planned the future of STREAM education at our school from a sustainability perspective. During this culminating experience, they also transitioned into Senior Fellows. Current plans include the return of a fan-favorite event: Hallow-STREAM. Additionally, they eagerly look forward to advancing our school’s STREAM accreditation.
