Students Spread Love and Gratitude During Love Week | Monarch Media

In order to spread love throughout the month of February, Trinity Hall celebrated “LOVE Week,”  a week in which the community participated in numerous activities revolving around Valentine's Day. LOVE Week took place from February 8 through 12 with each day representing a different love of Trinity Hall students. 
To kick off LOVE Week on February 8, students celebrated their love for our community. Students participated in an Advisory activity of their choosing to bond with their peers and advisor, and show their appreciation for one another. In addition, students donated $2 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, an organization dedicated to fighting blood cancer world-wide through the funding of blood cancer research. Students who donated to LLS were granted a dress down day and further displayed their love for their community. Not only were students able to contribute to a good cause but they also were given an opportunity to wear red to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and its mission.
LOVE Week continued throughout the week of Monday, February 12  when students celebrated their love of service. The freshmen class brought in sweets for the monthly bake sale. The Class of 2027 chose to donate the bake sale’s proceeds to “Liv like a Unicorn,” a foundation that raises awareness to help fund advancements in pediatric brain and spinal cord tumor research. The group successfully raised money for a great cause while also providing the Trinity Hall community with a sweet treat.
Tuesday was originally planned as a day to show students’ love of teachers, but plans were interrupted due to the unexpected snow day. Despite this, students continue to show their love for teachers on a daily basis. LOVE Week picked back up on Wednesday, February 10 when students celebrated their love of faith. The Lenten Season began with Ash Wednesday Mass held in the Commons. This mass encouraged each student to self-reflect and practice gratitude.
Thursday was perhaps the most important day of LOVE Week: love for yourself. In the Community Meeting, a seminar regarding self-care was organized by school nurse Mrs. Almeida. Dr. Yehl, D.O., board-certified family medicine physician and medical director of AtlaniCare Urgent Care, shared numerous self-care tips and a variety of ways in which we can support ourselves to show self-awareness. Ms. Pappa guided the community through a yoga session in which teachers and students alike were taught to let go of stressors in their lives. Participants were led through strategies to demonstrate how to relax and live in the moment. 
In order to further relieve the tension students tend to carry with them throughout the day, therapy dogs made an appearance at Trinity Hall. The dogs were a joyous presence for both students and faculty. In addition, students met with their Advisory during lunch and decorated cupcakes with their Big/Little Sisters. Students decorated fun cupcakes with a chance to compete in a friendly competition, providing an opportunity to further bond with their Big and Little Sisters. To end LOVE Week, students had no school on Friday. Students enjoyed a relaxing four day weekend, returning to school on Tuesday, February 20. 
LOVE Week was an extremely successful week in which students were able to show their affection for their community, service, teachers, faith, and themselves. This week-long event was made a success due to the support from both students and faculty. It proved to be a joyful and fun-filled week, a Trinity Hall tradition which students hope to continue in upcoming years.
