Wellness Policy

Holy Trinity Catholic School promotes health and wellness for the whole person: spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

Spiritually, we foster growth in each child’s personal relationship with God, in the knowledge of God’s great love for them, of his truths that will help lead them to a life of happiness, and of service to God and our world.

Emotionally, we foster the entire school community through a pervasive atmosphere of love, kindness, friendship, and respect.

Finally, we promote physical health and wellness by:

  • Offering a hot lunch program that serves healthy meals and meets 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 the opportunity for physical exercise and play each day.
  • Offering inter-school and intramural athletic opportunities for interested students beginning in the 4th grade.
