RECOMMENDED READING FOR PARENTS

#DCPSReads Summer Book Club Series is open to everyone! More information can be found on their website:

“DC Public Schools is launching its first-ever, citywide book club! Join Chancellor Alexander for empowering conversations for students, parents, and community members aligned to what our values and the issues that our communities encounter each day.

Every book club event will feature discussion around three diverse book selections that will interest, challenge, and develop our knowledge of one another and the world. Together, we will explore themes of race, ethnicity, and culture; gender identity and empowerment; and the joys of learning and discovery.”

Check out their site to see this year’s books!

Mission Statement

The Holy Trinity School Diversity & Equity Committee provides leadership, support, and resources to advance and sustain an all-inclusive school community where every individual is valued and embraced. We are committed to promoting awareness and a deeper understanding of all types of diversity so that everyone in our community feels safe and welcome. In order to be People for Others and to develop our Ignatian spirituality, we believe that social justice starts within our families and our school community.

Community Voices

"HTS is a vibrant, warm, faith-filled community that loves and welcomes our children, appreciates their strengths, helps them overcome challenges, and, most importantly, teaches them to be people for others." -HTS Parent

"In the aftermath of the events of Charlottesville and as part of our commitment to justice (a core component of our Jesuit tradition), teachers at HTS are engaged in ongoing discussion about how to raise awareness for peace and justice (in developmentally appropriate ways) across the curriculum.
