Wellness Policy

Holy Trinity Catholic School promotes health and wellness for the whole person: spiritually, emotionally, and physically. In the spiritual area, we try and foster growth in each child’s personal relationship with God and in knowledge of God’s great love for them and of his truths that will help lead them to a life of happiness and of service to God and our world.

We promote emotional well-being by fostering throughout the entire school community a pervasive atmosphere of love, kindness, friendship, and respect.

We promote physical health and wellness by:

  • Offering a hot lunch program that serves healthy meals that meet all state and federal standards.
  • Offering Physical Education classes twice a week for every student.
  • Offering a substantial (30 minutes for grades K-5 and 20 minutes for grades 6-8) recess period for all students every day. This allows the students a significant opportunity for physical exercise and play each day.
