Hands-On Activities for Students
At Holy Trinity, we view technology as an effective and powerful tool, capable of expanding the communication, presentation, and learning skills of our students, staff, and parents.
Each classroom contains networked computers and SMART Boards, which allows these technologies to be integrated across the curriculum. Students in all grades expand their learning with the use of iPads.
Our Holy Trinity website is updated regularly to keep parents and students aware of upcoming events, lunch menus, sports schedules, etc. Middle school parents (grades 6 to 8) are able to monitor their child’s progress through access to online homework assignment posts and student grades. Middle school students also use the Google Suite in class and at home for homework and learn how to use the Microsoft Office tools including Word, Excel,and Powerpoint.
The various aspects of technology branch-out to encompass our science curriculum.
- A science coordinator creates hands-on activities for students in grades K-5.
- Sixth and eighth grade students create science fair projects that are the culmination of individual research projects.
- Our science curriculum is further enhanced through our partnership with Talcott Mountain Science Center, which brings outside resources and technical equipment with which middle students conduct experiments.
- Students also participate in field trips to the Connecticut Science Center and the Discovery Museum.
Introduction to Engineering
Partnering with Play-Well TEKnologies and tens of thousands of LEGOs, students at Holy Trinity School are applying real-world concepts in engineering and architecture. Students are given a design/building assignment with guidance from an experienced Play-Well instructor. Instructors from Play-Well TEKnologies have varied backgrounds and careers in art, education, and engineering.
