In October, students of all ages and their families come together to pick crops at a local farm and the crops are then distributed to local homeless shelters and other charitable organizations to feed the needy. For further information or to volunteer, please contact Melanie Gibbons & Clare Ewald.
Trinity Golf & Tennis Classic
The annual Golf Classic is a community-building fundraising effort managed and organized by parent volunteers. The proceeds of this special event support our scholarship programs for Holy Trinity School students. Each year, Holy Trinity School awards full and partial scholarships to nearly 20% of the student population, enabling many to attend who would otherwise be unable to do so. The success of the Golf Classic depends on the support of our sponsors, donors, advertisers and participants! Please consider joining us at the Golf Classic to support these deserving HTS Students.
The classic is usually held on the third Monday of October at Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, VA. It is a casual event played in a scramble format so that golfers of all skill levels are sure to have a great time. Those who can't make it for golf are invited to attend the cocktail reception and awards dinner following the day's events. Please consider joining us at the Classic to support these deserving HTS Students.We would love to have as many participants as possible. Volunteers are needed to assist with mailings, registration, contests, and more. For further information or to volunteer, please contact Kristin and Adam VanFossen or Molly and Chris Gaston.
HTS Book Fair
The Book Fair is an annual weeklong fair held in the Lower School Big Room in the fall.
Mini Walk for the Homeless
The Mini Walk is done in conjunction with the larger annual Walk for the Homeless, and is held during a school morning in November. The morning begins with an all-school assembly where staff members from the local homeless shelter Friendship Place to talk to the students (and parents) about the issue of homelessness. From there, the students participate as a whole school in a walk around the streets surrounding the school in support of Friendship Place. All students participate and parents are strongly encouraged to join them during the assembly and walk. Kids have the option to purchase t-shirts to benefit Friendship Place.
Advent Giving Tree
During December, the HSA’s Social Justice Committee works with the Parish Social Justice Committee to identify opportunities for Holy Trinity families to participate in the Parish Giving Tree project. At the start of the advent season, tags containing requested gifts will be available for families to pick up on the trees in the back of the church. Gifts are collected during the Sunday masses in December.
Christmas Show Coffee

Annual Teacher and Staff Christmas Fund

Field Day is a fun day of activities and competition with events including a sack race, three-legged race, egg toss, diamond dash, frisbee throw and others. We end the day with the traditional tug-of-war contest between the blue and the white teams.
