Trinity Students Back at School


It's been a week since a fire severely damaged and shut down Dickinson Trinity.

Now it's back to school for the Titans.

"I'm excited because it's like a new start," says Dacia Rambousek, 7th Grader, Trinity.

It's almost like the first day of school.

"They're overly anxious, they're bubbly," says Kathy Kiedrowski, FACS Teacher.

Prairie Rose Elementary welcomes the 7th and 8th graders with open arms.

"They made posters, they welcomed us when we came in this morning," says Dacia Rambousek, 7th Grader, Trinity.

"How can you not choke up when you see that, you see on the lockers they have our Titan T on our lockers and there's a crucifix in the room," says Kiedrowski.

From underdogs to top dogs, these junior highers recognize their new role and are ready to represent Titan pride to a T.

"Changing from Trinity to here, being with littler kids and not so much big kids that you look up to. You're trying to have them look up to you and treat them good so they treat other people good once they get up to bigger schools," says Brendan Berger, 7th Grader, Trinity.

Across town, the juniors and seniors get acquainted to their new environment at St. Joseph's Church.

"The students have been really happy to see each other and happy to see us too and we're happy to see them," says Janel Schiff, English & Speech Teacher, Trinity.

It may take a little getting used to but these students say it's not just about the building.

"Honestly, it feels like home because Trinity, you know, it was our school but it was a lot more than that. It was the idea and the attitude about being a family and we kind of brought that with us here," says Coltyn Nelson, Junior, Trinity.

"The atmosphere here is still like a Trinity family, you can still feel it going on," says Austin Deichert, Senior, Trinity.

With the positive attitudes of students and staff, it's safe to say everyone will remember these Titans.

"The community has come together, the classes have come together and we're going to form relationships that we're going to have for the rest of our lives," says Deichert.

Their T-shirts say "we will rise again."

The Trinity teachers are making plans to once, every two weeks, get together as a school.

This will include all grades, seventh through 12th, and they'll have mass and team building activities.
