I think it's great. Where are they going to put these kids? Will they have sports programs? Music program? The only thing that worries me are social ramifications once they go to the high school.

Trinity already has a very good music program. Sports will require agreement with Massena Central to share those activities.

I went to a catholic school and had no problems transfering to jr high, 2 more years may not make too much of a difference.

is it going to get them prepared for high school? Will they have lockers and class changes ect? sewing, cooking, all of the above and will they offer spanish along with there french so the kids have a choice? I mean it's great to slap on 2 extra grades but is it gonna prepare them for high school and the real world? I have nothing against trinity but I've also heard because they spend so much time on religion and language at a young age they are behind in reading and math skills...and i know this for a fact because I know people that have taught there as well as kids who went there then transferred to nitengale and were way behind the other students in math and other areas. so they need to look at that as well.otherwise if they can fix all these problems then i think it's a great thing. it's about the kids and preparing them for life.

They used to have a junior high program back in the early 80's when I was in school. I don't remember any of those kids having problems with going into the high school at 9th grade, socially or academically?

What are you talking about "soo", I went to Trinity and the one thing I remeber about moving to 7th grade was that I was so far ahead. Several of the most recent valdictorians were Trinity alumni. My daughter for one attends Trinity. She is in third grade, yet when she tries her friends homework,(who attends nightengale and is in 4th grade) she finds it easy. Trinity school has exceeded public schools in NYS standads for decades.

Trinity has excelled on the nys tests for many years compared to other elementary schools in the area. As turtle said many valedictorians have been from trinity. Look at the high honor roll and honor roll and mark trinity kids, they dominate the lists.

All religious schools should be shut down & the kids sent to public school. This way all the federal aid they such up from public schools can go to pay for a real school.
If the money from Trinity went to MCS, that would definitely help with the budget issues.

I remember Holy Family high school had sports but couldn't play vs Massena high school. That was stupid, would've been some great football & hockey games between them!

Shows how little you know about Catholic schools....they get very little to NO federal aid!!! Most of the money that goes into Trinity is raised through tons of fundraising by the students' families, assistance from the local churches, generous donations from community members and businesses and the list goes on!! What's real sad though, even though I pay Massena school taxes, when there are productions put on at the high school for the kids, all the public school kids get to go free of charge, but the kids at Trinity have to pay to go....now that's pathetic!! So don't worry about us sucking up any of your precious public school money because that is certainly not the case!! Maybe public school families should do some fundraising to help your budget issues and stop crying about something you think is being sucked away from you!!

You obviously didn't finish school because you're a moron. Public schools are "real" schools? If it weren't for the influx of Catholic school kids into public schools, the cumulative averages would be in the low 80's! Why don't you go earn your GED idiot!

Last time I checked, I've paid Massena School taxes for almost 30 years, so basically I'm paying for those buses!!! And when school is not in session for MCSD, there is no transportation for Trinity students. And what may I ask are these so-called ancillary services??

Nursing ,,,, special services ... Etc...you pay taxes for a public school it is your choice not to utilize the services provided. I pay village taxes but I can't have the village pay for a different trash pick just because I don't like how the village does it !!

The taxpayer funds those services, not Massena Central. You must not be a taxpayer, otherwise you would know that.
