2023-24 Family Newsletter


From the Registrar's Office: 

The deadline for parent/guardian Blackbaud updates, student medical record submissions, and student/parent/guardian handbook signatures has passed. In order for students to attend Walk-a-Thon and Homecoming, students must be up-to-date with all of these requirements. Any students who have missing requirements will be notified directly.  For questions, please call the front office at 708-771-8383.

In-person Parent Teacher Conferences: Thursday, September 28 from 1:00 to 8:00 pm 

We would like to invite all Blazer parents to join us for in-person first semester Parent Teacher Conferences on Thursday, September 28 from 1:00 to 8:00 pm. The conferences will allow you to have a brief personal conversation about your Blazer's achievements with each of their teachers. We would love to meet each of you personally and see you in our building. Students will have a noon dismissal that day to allow for conferences with you. Click here to make your appointment. Scheduling closes September 25th.

Progress Reports to be sent via Blackbaud on September 22nd

September 22nd marks the halfway point of the first block of the 2023-24 school year. On this date, all teachers will send out - via a Blackbaud notification to students' and parents' / guardians' inboxes - a Progress Report to any student who has a low or failing grade. We define a "low grade" as a 77 % (C-) or lower. The objective of the Progress Report is to alert students and families that, while the block is halfway through, there are still several weeks remaining for the student to get extra help and improve her grade. Students and families should reach out directly to teachers for questions concerning grades. If you do not receive any Progress Reports, it means that your daughter is not receiving any grades lower than 78 %.

College Planning

College Fair on Monday, September 18th, 6:30-8:00 pm @ St. Patrick High School. Trinity has partnered with Fenwick and St. Pats to co-host a College Fair. If you plan to attend you MUST register with StriveScan:

Tuesday, September 19th from 6:30-8:00 pm

The College Application & Financial Aid Night is upon us. Senior class of 2024 attendance is required, and families are encouraged to attend. The program will take place in the Dr. Alice M. Fox Auditorium. Important information about the college application and financial aid process will be shared. The Associate Vice-President for Financial Aid at Lake Forest, Jerry Cebrzynski, will be presenting. If a student has an approved conflict (i.e., an athletic event), they must attend a make-up session on 9/20 during 3A/B in Boardroom 300. 

College Rep Visits started this week and will run through October! Thank you to all the students who came to chat with the reps, they were all very impressed. Keep an eye out for the Daily Announcements to see what colleges will be on campus each week. 

Mr. Lombardo and Ms. Denz will host an Essay Writing Workshop on Sept. 26th from 8-9:15 am. Students who are feeling stuck, don’t know where to start or just want some advice on their college essay(s) should attend. 

ICYMI (In Case You Missed It)

Blazers Need Your Voice!

Invest in Kids, an important scholarship granting program that allows students from disadvantaged homes to attend quality private schools, is slated to sunset on December 31 unless state legislators approve an extension. 

Trinity High School presently has 62 students on the waiting list who qualify for these scholarship dollars to attend Trinity. Unfortunately, this means that girls who want to be Blazers cannot afford to be Blazers. Our community is missing some amazing young women!

Please contact your state representative via THIS FORM and ask them to keep this very important program that allows parents to determine the best education for their daughters, regardless of the cost.


The work of empowering and educating women to be leaders of knowledge, strength and faith is predicated upon regular and consistent student attendance and we are grateful for your partnership with regards to this priority.  Please read the following carefully as there are important updates to the Attendance Policies for the 2023-2024 School Year.
