The New Year Starts Off With Additions, Changes and Thanks

Dear Friends of Blessed Trinity:

As I write this, we are in the ninth day of school. The year has started smoothly, with a successful pre-planning with our seven new teachers and returning faculty, a good Orientation Day for our newest Titans, classes getting underway (including new Advanced Placement courses in Calculus BC and Art History), a beautiful Mass on our third day, and a record-breaking crowd witnessing the most exciting football victory in our history.

The Class of 2005 has departed, but many returned during our first few days to say good-bye before they head off to college. Our third graduating class and the first class that entered after our charter year have already distinguished themselves. The 198 members of the class received over 700 college acceptances at 178 different colleges in 24 states and Great Britain, and received over $4.7 million in scholarship offers (not counting the HOPE).

The BT chapter of Habitat for Humanity spent its first year working on a townhome project in Roswell, and for their efforts was named the North Fulton chapter of the year and one of the top 100 chapters in the United States. Wow, what a great start!

Our three-year program to "finish the building" has just about concluded. Many thanks to all of you who contributed to the changes in the chapel so it can accommodate 100 people, completion of the theater with new fly lines, projection screen and wood floor, the addition of lights on the soccer and baseball fields, the new track surface (almost done), visitors bleachers in the football stadium (hopefully installed by the next home game), and creation of a lacrosse field.

Thanks also to the hundreds of families who took the time to plow through the very lengthy long range planning survey you were sent last February. Crunching the mounds of data took us through the summer, and now the Advisory Board and Home and School Executive Board will begin the process of taking the data from you, faculty, and students to create a vision of where we want to head over the next three to five years.

Be sure to check out our new, improved Web site. It is updated at least once a day, and it will provide you with all the information you need about events at BT. We have a new domain name, www.btcatholic.org, but you can still access the site through the old name www.bttitans.org until the license on that name expires in about six years. E-mail addresses for faculty and staff can be accessed through [first initial][last name]@[either domain name].

If there is anything we can do to help you this year, please contact us. We always want you to feel that the value-added in attending BT far exceeds the price of tuition.

Sincerely in Christ,

Frank Moore

Principal
