Students Stay Trinity Strong During School Open Houses

Posted: Updated:

Many Dickinson Trinity students haven't been able to see inside the school they once called home. On Sunday however, they were able to take a look at where they'll be going to classes the rest of the year.

Trinity strong. It's the motto the school's community is embracing in the aftermath of an unexpected crisis.

"I think it's good to see people are coming together and starting a cause and trying to bring some positive energy here instead of all this negative stuff," says Trinity student council president Austin Deichert.

The community isn't just saying the phrase. They're also wearing it.

"I saw the kids were going to be separated and this was a great way to create unity," says Diane Sickler, Trinity Parent and Account Manager at Coaches Choice Athletic Apparel.

After last week's fire closed Trinity for the year, Coaches Choice partnered with Steffes Corporation to make 500 free shirts for the school's faculty and students. Sickler handed out the shirts to students at their open houses on Sunday. That was the first time they got a chance to see where they'll be learning the rest of the school year.

"There's a lot of unknown about that's going to happen," says Gregg Grinnsteiner a Trinity math teacher and coach. "I think we have a lot of veteran teachers that are here and are going to step up to the plate. Everyone is going to do their best to get kids back to some sense of normalcy."

People who work in the buildings where Trinity students are headed are trying to help with that normalcy.

"They actually put pictures up of us from games and band concerts and different things like that. They're trying to make us at home as much as we can be," says senior Danielle Arriola.

Students will get a chance to show off their new shirts when they support their girls basketball team at the Region 7 Tournament Monday night.
