Meet-the-Teacher Day • Monday, August 19, 2019
In an effort to help our families manage back-to-school visits, Trinity holds Meet-the-Teacher Day for all three divisions on the same day. Our hope is that this will help streamline your schedules and make the first week of school easier for your family.

8:45 a.m • New Lower School Families and Students Welcome • The HUB
New Lower School families are invited to The HUB to hear from Director of Lower School Amy Chauncey, Head of School Chip Denton, and Trinity Parent Organization President Rebecca Thomas. After this brief gathering, families will go to the classrooms to meet the teachers.

9:00 a.m. onward • Party in the Parking Lot
The Advancement Office is kicking off the school year with a party in the parking lot! Stop by their tent to get Trinity swag, discover some surprises, meet new friends, and get ready for a great year.

9:15 a.m. • Returning Lower School Families and Students • Lower School Building
Welcome to your classroom! Please bring your school supplies with you during your visit. Students will meet their teachers, load their supplies into their desks and cubbies, visit with classmates, and get excited for the new year.

10:00 a.m. • Cool off with LocoPops
End your visit with a cool treat from Durham’s own LocoPops!

Each summer, the Trinity community reads a book together as part of the Trinity Readsprogram. This year, we all—Trinity families, faculty, and staff—are reading Winnie-the-Pooh.

For more information, see this flyer or read Dr. Denton's introduction to this year's Trinity Reads. We hope you'll accept his challenge to read Winnie-the-Pooh aloud with your children, young and old!
