Innovation and individual attention
Holy Trinity School philosophy states, “We
recognize and value the uniqueness, dignity, and basic goodness of each
individual as a child of God. With this in mind, we attempt to impart
to our students a sense of the unconditional love of God and a certainty
of their own self-worth.” As a school we create programs and constantly
evaluate and redevelop our curriculum to try to best meet all students’
learning needs. We believe our math program is a clear example of
At Holy Trinity School we want each child
to reach their maximum potential. The Advanced Math Program s Middle
School students to take higher level math classes.
In 2005, we created a Math Lab with smaller
class size. In our Math Lab, a math specialist works with those
students in grades three through five who need additional help. The
students attending the Math Lab receive small group instruction in
multiple ways. Students are taught by teacher demonstration at the
board and by being able to write problems on individual white boards.
“Hands on” instruction includes use of clocks, money, fraction cubes,
geometric shapes, and numbers and operation signs. For upper division
students with identified needs, our Resource Teacher works in small
groups in the classroom with these students to provide accommodations
and special help. Our goal is to build the students’ mastery of math
concepts and skills, and to build their self-esteem through succeeding
in math. Success builds self-worth.
At Holy Trinity School, we do recognize the
uniqueness of each student and strive to meet the unique learning needs
of all. We feel that this innovative math program is making great
strides to help us accomplish our mission of an unconditional love of
God and a certainty of each student’s self-worth.
