2022 Holy Trinity Episcopal School Benefit – Charity Golf Tournament & Fundraiser

updateNewsLeave a Comment

The parish of Holy Trinity, Fruitland Park, has sustained one primary mission over the years: Holy Trinity Episcopal School.  Our school, located on the church campus, is a private, non-profit school specifically for students who struggle to learn, belong, and make friends in traditional school settings. Our students are challenged by varying degrees of Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, ADD, Dyslexia and other learning differences. We’re deliberately small — enrolling no more than 49 students in grades 6-12 — which enables each child to receive the individual attention they need to reach their full potential.

 

When students graduate from HTES with a full diploma and go on to college, a vocational program, or work, we’ve fulfilled our Mission: to equip each student with the tools they need to lead a rich and independent life. Each year, however, our non-profit school barely breaks even financially. This is where we ask for our community’s help.

 

Each year we hold a charity Golf Tournament and Fundraiser to benefit the children at our school. You can make a difference in the lives of these wonderful, hard-working students! REGISTER to play golf (as an individual or four-some) on Oct 29th OR Sign Up for a personal or corporate SPONSORSHIP on our golf websiteholytrinityschoolgolf.com. We are also immensely grateful for tax-deductible checks of any size payable to ‘Holy Trinity School Golf’ mailed to Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 2201 Spring Lake Road, Fruitland Park FL 34731. Questions?  Please contact Judy Monin, Tournament/Benefit Chairperson, at moninjudy@gmail.com or the church office at 352-787-1500. Thank you and bless you for your kind generosity.

The Holy Trinity Episcopal School Tutoring Program gives interested adults an opportunity to support a student on a one-on-one basis, typically for one hour a week during the school year.

What is asked of a tutor?
We ask our tutors to:

  1. Tutor on a weekly basis during the school year, at an appointed time, with a single student.
  2. Assist with such tasks as reading and/or math, homework, class assignments and helping students catch up due to missed days.
  3. Develop an appropriate social connection with the student.
  4. Stay in close contact with the school’s Headmaster and the student’s teachers, to provide feedback concerning academic advancement and continuous improvement.

How does a tutor work with students with learning differences?
When 6th grade students arrive at Holy Trinity Episcopal School, most are one to two years below their grade level in reading and math. The goal is to have students improve their grade levels in math and reading. (We provide appropriate training material for both reading and math.)

How many student(s) do tutors assist?
Most tutors work with one student, although you may choose to work with more than one student. The
Head of School will assess the need.

How much time, per week, is asked?
The school year is 24 weeks (August to May). Tutors are asked to spend one class period (50
minutes) per week for 15 to 17 weeks with their student. The school understands that tutors
may have vacations planned during those weeks and that is understandable and accommodated.

Tutor or Mentor?
Tutors at Holy Trinity may mentor and tutor concurrently. However, some in the tutor program
may choose to mentor, exclusively. In addition to the tutor’s academic role, mentoring involves
developing the student’s life skills, including building self-esteem, time management, critical
thinking, and appropriate social behavior. Training and materials are provided.

How do I become a tutor?

​You begin by completing the volunteer tutor screening process which includes a background check,
fingerprinting, completing the school’s child safety training course, and being interviewed by the
school Headmaster. We will work with you to accomplish this for the upcoming 2022-23 school year. Please contact the School Administrator, Kadie at (352) 787-8855 or to begin the process and for more information. Visit our website! www.htepiscopalschool.org
