First day of school comes with new playground for students at Holy Trinity School

BAY CITY - The opening day of school held some extra excitement for students at Holy Trinity School as they celebrated the dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony for their new playground. Members of the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce were also on hand to assist with the ribbon cutting.

School officials said they are extremely grateful for the hard work that contributed to the installation of phase one of the new playground equipment and surroundings.

“I’m truly excited for our students, and am looking forward to seeing their activity and hearing their laughter throughout the school year,” school Prinicipal Terrie DeWaele said.

The school hosted fundraisers last year, received donations and was awarded a $4000 Michigan Baseball Foundation (MBF) grant in March to develop the new playground. A portion of the new equipment is specifically designed for pre-school children ages 2 to 5.

Holy Trinity School, one of four elementary schools within the Bay Area Catholic Schools system. It operates a three-year-old and four-year-old preschool program plus Early Fives, half and full-day Kindergarten, and grades 1 through 5.

The school also offers a Before School Program and an After School Care & Literacy Program for students.

Interested parents may call (989) 892-3018 to arrange for a private tour of the school and playground or for registration information for the 2009-2010 school year.
