Students, teachers and staff of Holy Trinity Catholic School
in Morrisville celebrated the start of the new school year on Friday, Sept. 8 under the theme, “Holy Trinity School: To Space and Beyond.” The day began with Mass celebrated by the Holy Trinity Parish’s pastor, Father John Eckert. The school grounds were decorated with a fun space theme, students received themed treats and class pictures were taken in “outer space.” Students and guests were entertained by the popular “Rock Roots” group which teaches the history of American pop music through a live, educational presentation.
