Second Empire 5K & Spring Fling Reminders

I look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow (April 22nd) at the Second Empire 5K and Spring Fling! As a reminder, there is also a 1-mile fun run at 10 am and Kids’ Dash (age 6 and younger) at 10:20 am. Full details, including links to registration, can be found here. After the 5K is Trinity Academy’s Spring Fling where concessions will be available for sale and various inflatables and other activities are set up around campus. This serves as a community building opportunity as we enter the final stretch of the school year!

Please note:

  • The Lower School class with the highest percentage of students participating, in either the 5K or 1-mile fun run, will earn an additional 30 minutes of recess in April or May.
  • The Lower School class with the highest percentage of parents participating, either by volunteering for the 5K or by running/walking the 5K, will earn an additional 30 minutes of recess in April or May.

ERB Testing

A reminder that ERB testing begins Monday, April 24th and continues through Thursday, April 27th. Those who miss a day of testing will be completing their tests Friday or the next week, as time permits. This testing is only for grades 2-6 in the Lower School (grades 7 & 8 also take the ERB in the Upper School). Additional information, including how to prepare for the test, can be found in the attached letter (which was also sent home in hard copy earlier this week).

Black & Gold Days

Lower School students will have Friday, April 28th as a Black & Gold Day to celebrate the completion of the week of testing. 4th grade is on a field trip that day so their Black & Gold Day will be Monday, May 1st.
