EducatiHoly Trinity Grade Schoolon

Holy Trinity Parish is particularly committed to the education of its members—especially its children and teens—as Christ commanded us: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20a). Having built its own Catholic school in 1901 to fulfill this Gospel mandate, Holy Trinity has a long history of educating its young people.

Today, Holy Trinity provides several different education programs to meet the needs of all its parishioners.

Holy Trinity Grade School
Holy Trinity Grade School has as its mission to form a community of faith based on the teaching of Jesus Christ and to cultivate knowledge by promoting a Catholic way of life through Gospel values and a commitment to academic excellence.

All children—parishioners and non-parishioners, Catholics and non-Catholics alike—are welcome to enroll in our school for their K-6 education. If you are interested in a tour of our facilities or would like to learn more about our school, please contact the principal, Mrs Stacy Uttecht, by calling the school office at 402-254-6496.

Enrollment for the current school year is 151 students in grades K-6, with an average class size of about 21 students.

Holy Trinity Preschool
In addition to its elementary school program, Holy Trinity is pleased to offer a first-class preschool education with a certified teacher in its own building at its newly renovated site at 203 S. Capitol in Hartington.

The preschool has as its mission to prepare young children to participate successfully in formal schooling. Parents and teachers work cooperatively to assist them in developing positive self-concepts. The uniqueness of each child is the foundation for developing the Christian attitudes of loving, helping, sharing, and developing a relationship with God.

Holy Trinity Preschool offers two program levels: Junior Kindergarten and Preschool. Our Junior Kindergarten is a five-day afternoon program intended to prepare children for entry into kindergarten the following year. Our Preschool program is a three-day morning program intended to introduce children to learning in a classroom setting.

If you are interested in a tour of our facilities or would like to learn more about our preschool, please contact the principal, Mrs. Stacy Uttecht, at the school office by calling 402-254-6496.

Religious Education Program
The Catholic Church understands that the education of children, especially with regard to matters of faith, belongs first and foremost to parents. As a parish community Holy Trinity Parish is committed to assisting parents in this responsibility by providing a Religious Education Program and Youth Ministry Program apart from our Catholic schools for all children in grades K-12.

Family Formation is our program for elementary age students and their parents in grades K-6. Family Formation is held the first Wednesday of the month from 6:15-7:30 p.m. in the Holy Trinity School. Students meet in a classroom for faith building activities with a catechist while parents meet in the Holy Trinity gym for a presentation and activities with the priest or special presenter.

In particular, for families whose children attend HNPS, we will have another Wednesday night devoted to just the children in grades 1-6. We will not have Kindergarten. This will take place the third Wednesday of each month. It will begin at 6:15 and conclude at 7:30 pm.

Grades 7-8 meet at Holy trinity Rectory Conference Room every Wednesday evening during the school year from 6:45 - 8:00 to prepare for confirmation with instruction by Deacon Filips.

Y-Disciple is our high school youth ministry for students in grades 9-12. Y Disciple groups meet weekly, most usually wednesday evenings, at a time set by each group. Students are grouped according to grades and gender. Grade 9 and 10 boys and girls meet together at their Catechist's home. Grades 11 and 12 girls and boys meet separately at Catechist's homes. Y-Disciple groups engage in small group discussion, prayer, and team building activities.

For more information or to become involved in Holy Trinity youth ministry and discipleship, text or call Monica Kathol (402-841-5594).
