Trinity Christian Academy Homecoming under way

Special to The Community News

With fall weather descending upon the North Texas community, Trinity Christian Academy will celebrate their thirteenth homecoming on Oct. 11 with the varsity football team competing against district rival Nazarene Christian Academy.

While Friday night football is the pinnacle of homecoming events, TCA works to make the entire week leading up to the big game exciting for everyone. The student council, National Honor Society and cheerleading squads have worked hard to plan several activities for the students.

Spirit Week began on Oct. 7 with secondary students trading in their school uniforms for a week’s worth of fun special dress days including ‘Merica Monday, Tacky Tuesday, Wild West Wednesday, Disney Thursday, and ‘Fan’atic Friday. Daily “Best Dressed” awards were presented to a boy and girl student in middle school and high school categories. 

Another important homecoming tradition is the selection of the homecoming court as 9th-12th grade students chose representatives for each high school grade. Sometimes perceived as a popularity contest, TCA urges students to go beyond that when choosing class representatives.

“Students were asked to select classmates who regularly demonstrate a bold, uncompromising faith in Jesus Christ, respect authority, are honest, practice godly speech, show kindness, seek unity among the student body, and serve as exemplary role models for students of all ages,” Trinity Christian Academy’s Principal, Ken Nobles said.

“These special educators are among the very best, who treat the students of Parker County with respect and instill a love of learning,” Aledo’s Junior Cotillion director Sharon Pate said.

The teachers were given certificates and roses in an awards ceremony at the Junior Cotillion Grand Ball February 25 at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center.

“Teachers don’t get enough thank yous,” Pate told students and parents gathered at the event. “We would like to honor them.

These special teachers have been chosen by Junior Cotillion students to receive the ‘Best Mannered Teacher’ award.”

Students wrote essays about a teacher who they found to have the best manners and who always treated others with honor, dignity, and respect.

“We thank our students for taking the time to honor these special teachers who are good role models and show courtesy and respect to all students,” Pate said.

Junior Cotillion students, in sixth grade through eighth grade, meet monthly during the school year to learn etiquette and ballroom dancing.

The program is designed to build self-confidence, character and ethical behavior and is dedicated to making a positive impact on young people and helping them become tomorrow’s leaders.
