We can live out our mission of being academically excellent through our teachers and their dedication to developing extraordinary programming, incredible field trips and continuing to find new and creative ways to engage our students. This means our teachers work as partners with parents to develop students’ unique, God-given gifts and talents and set academic goals individual to the student in a caring, safe and nurturing environment. All while providing opportunities to stretch their learning and develop them as leaders with integrity and confidence.
Minnesota Regional Science Fair
We’ve experienced this academic excellence this month through two competitive events, the MN Regional Science Fair and Destination Imagination State Competition. In 2018, Mr. Stock’s student’s set a Blessed Trinity State Science Fair qualifier record of 5 students. This year Mr. Stock and his students smashed that record with 11 qualifiers.
In addition, several individual awards were given to our students including: Graduate Women and Science award, 3M Film and Materials Resource Division Award, 3M Inventor Recognition (2), Inspiring Excellence Project Award, Award for Science Potential, and Naval Science Award.
Blessed Trinity has two Destination ImagiNation teams. Destination Imagination is an international creative problem-solving competition and an enhancement offered at Blessed Trinity. Led by Mrs. Myott teams of 2-7 work on a multi-faceted challenge and then bring it to the regional tournament to present. There are five competitive challenges: Engineering, technical, fine arts, scientific, and improvisational. Blessed Trinity’s teams competed at the North Metro Tournament in Coon Rapids this month. Both teams, “DI Surfers” and “BT Fire”, showed great teamwork as they competed in the main challenge and instant challenge. BT Fire took 2nd place and has qualified for state! This hands-on, collaborative and fun work empowers students to take their learning to the next level.
Both state-level events come with hefty registration fees – up to $210 per student. Your gifts to the Annual Fund will support the students at these state competitions. Our students are living proof of our mission to be Academically Excellent at every level.
