8th graders investigated evidence of chemical reactions during science class. You can see the delight in their faces upon finding their experiment triggered a reaction as planned!


Lower School students visited an art and poetry exhibit outside of our chapel and reflected on the many ways we receive and experience God's love. They particularly loved this painting!

5th graders made “papyrus” paper out of paper bags and then learned how to write hieroglyphics. They use the hieroglyphics to write messages that classmates then had to decode!


The pre-k has been busy decorating an alphabetree! Students traced letters onto ornaments, cut them out, and hung them carefully.

A new museum opened recently in McKenna with an exhibit curated by 7th grade biologists, who have been studying specialized cells. Specialized cells have unique structures and functions and, together, create tissue. Tissues, in turn, form organs.

Students created models of cells to explain their functions to museum visitors. Specialized cell models included red blood cells, nervous cells, bone cells, and intestinal cells, among others. Did you know there are more than 220 specialized cells?

The Turkey Bowl was delayed this year but duly held once the HSPT was completed and temperatures warmed. Although determinedly fought, neither 8th grade section garnered enough points to solidify a lead, and the game ended in a tie.

It is with a heavy heart that we inform you about the passing of former Holy Trinity School music and art teacher Jon Kirby. Mr. Kirby worked at Holy Trinity from 2018-2023 and impacted so many students’ lives through his passion for the arts.

Mr. Kirby will be remembered for his warmth and commitment to students. He cherished every one of his students and celebrated their talents, even sharing their work with his friends and family. For Mr. Kirby, each day was an opportunity to make a difference, and he did make a difference for so many current and former HTS students. In the words of his sister, former HTS teacher Krissy Pierno, “Mr. Kirby was so full of life and goodness and music, and he filled us all with tremendous joy.”

Knowing this community, you all will be eager to support Mr. Kirby’s family. In addition to your prayers and condolences, you may contribute to a GoFundMe organized by Mr. Kirby’s family to help establish a memorial fund in his name: https://gofund.me/077e0947

We know you will all join us in celebrating Mr. Kirby’s life and the gifts he brought to our community.

This is an especially difficult time of the year for such devastating news. As we head into what is traditionally a season of joy, Advent, and prepare for our Christmas show, of which Mr. Kirby was always an integral part, we encourage you to remember the passion with which Mr. Kirby approached teaching and life.

God bless you all.


Friends zipped together for extra love and warmth 💜

A fierce debate took place between the loyalists and patriots in 7th grade social studies. Students were tasked with answering the question of if the colonies should revolt against Great Britain. Students crafted speeches and presented them to a panel of judges. The judges split their decision, handing a victory to the patriots in one class and to the loyalists in the other.

Laudato Si' Thanksgiving action: compost those leftovers and food scraps! 🦃



Happy Thanksgiving, HTS!

We recently discovered that several HTS families had independently nominated Mrs. Strike for the Honored National Teaching Award. Now in her sixth year at HTS, Mrs. Strike brings a joy to our school community that is contagious. And what an impact she has made on our youngest learners! Here are a few excerpts from her award nominations:

"Mrs. Strike captures the attention of her students, which is hard, given they are ages four and five and have limited attention spans. Whether it is her festive wigs and costumes, creative songs and dances, or the way she makes each student feel special, Mrs. Strike gets her students interested and energized to learn! Our son cherishes his relationship with Mrs. Strike, and both he and our family genuinely feel she loves him like family. Mrs. Strike believes in him, which helps him believe in himself. We could not be more blessed to have Mrs. Strike in our lives."

"Mrs. Strike has welcomed every student of hers in such a way that inspires a lifetime love of learning. From wearing costumes and wigs to school, to touching base with parents even after the children move on from her classes, she goes above and beyond what it means to be a teacher. She makes things an absolute blast for the kids, and her joy of teaching is infectious, such that the kids are scrambling through the doors in the morning to get to her class. While known as the most fun in the school, she is no pushover, teaching all of her students respect and self control in everything they do. It's common for families to receive pictures from Mrs. Strike YEARS after she has taught their children, saying, "Remember this?" with a picture or special memory of their child."

"Having had my child home with me for the first four years of her life, it was difficult adjusting to her not being around all day every day. The moment I met Mrs. Strike, all worry and anxiety went away. My daughter always came home with Mrs. Strike stories: how funny she was, how she'd taken the time to raise the spirits of a kiddo having a tough day, or how she gave a much needed hug to a student. I'll always be so grateful that my daughter's first teacher made her feel cared for, and a part of the larger community."

"Mrs. Strike saved us during COVID when our son had her. She consistently went out of her way to make sure our son (and all the students) felt loved and a sense of conform during a difficult time. She constantly kept the parents informed through pictures, emails, texts and calls. To this day (two years after our son had her), she still regularly sends us pictures of him from that time and currently. We have never been around a teacher that has inspired more love and care into all the students she teaches and that continues to this day. We wish she could teach our kids every year!"

Each year, our parish provides nourishing Thanksgiving meals for people in need, and each year, the 8th grade class helps to carefully pack the ingredients.

Over $11,000 in donations from parishioners have provided full meals for the men served by the Fr. McKenna Center, families served by Hope and a Home, and our parish migrant familia. Additionally, we have provided 75 uncooked turkeys to the Fr. McKenna Center and cooked turkeys and hams for around 200 clients of S.O.M.E.

Thank you to all the HTS families who helped ensure our neighbors won't go hungry on Thanksgiving!

English and language arts classes aren't just about reading and discussing books. They also incorporate guest speakers, trips to the theatre, and creative writing.

5th graders visited the Kennedy Center to attend Jason Reynold's play Look Both Ways, a multimedia production illuminating 10 vignettes about middle school students. They also enjoyed a demonstration by Georgetown University's fencing club while reading Jewell Parker Rhodes' Black Brother, Black Brother, which is centered around the sport of fencing.

5th and 1st graders were recently given time to write creative pieces. 5th graders read aloud their scariest stories to classmates before Halloween, and 1st graders illustrated their stories and added them to their classroom libraries.

One of the ways we live our faith is by taking care of the Earth. Fr. Gillespie spoke with pre-k students about how God calls on us to actively care for creation, and he helped students plant and water tulip bulbs that will sprout and bloom next spring.

The rainy weather means it's a good day to get your energy out with indoor games. Perhaps a game of Mario Kart - Battle Mode? 2nd and 4th graders have been working on strategy, teamwork, throwing, and evading.

Another option: obstacle courses! Students love to run and roll around cones, under banners, and between barriers.

Nothing beats hands-on learning. 4th graders walked to Roosevelt Island and used their map reading skills to follow a trail that introduced them to the island's flora and fauna, as well as to the indigenous people who once lived there. 4th grade social studies focuses on the history of our area, and students have been enriching their studies with field trips to places of early historical importance.

Yes, you're seeing that right. These children are jumping into a giant box of corn kernels.


"Give us, O Lord, a steadfast heart, which no unworthy affection may drag downwards; give us an unconquered heart, which no tribulation can wear out; give us an upright heart, which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside. Bestow upon us also, O Lord our God, understanding to know you, diligence to seek you, wisdom to find you, and a faithfulness that may finally embrace you; through Jesus Christ our Lord."

Thanks to all our faculty and parent coaches for helping with our fall sports.


📸 8th graders this weekend at the fall mixer


Barbie went bungie jumping to demonstrate linear equations during 7th grade math class. Students were tasked with giving Barbie a thrilling skydiving experience from the window while still ensuring she could return to the second floor safe and sound.

To do this, students tested different lengths of bungie cords using rubber bands tied together. They collected data on the results of Barbie's dives, graphed it on a scatterplot, and then found the equation for the line of best fit. Students then predicted the maximum number of rubber bands (and maximum length of the bungie cord) that could be used without Barbie injuring herself by hitting the ground.

Barbie had a spectacular time!


In just three days, 6th graders collected over 1,025 diapers for the Christ Child Society of DC! We are proud of these students for others!
