Trinity‌ ‌Prep’s‌ ‌annual‌ ‌Headmaster’s‌ ‌Day‌ ‌is‌ ‌on‌ ‌Thursday.‌ ‌Guidance‌ ‌Counselor‌ ‌Rylan‌ ‌Smith‌ ‌and‌ ‌Middle‌ ‌School‌ ‌Principal‌ ‌Jason‌ ‌Dowdy‌ ‌were‌ ‌key‌ ‌factors‌ ‌in‌ ‌planning‌ ‌this‌ ‌year’s‌ ‌Headmaster’s‌ ‌Day, with‌ ‌input‌ ‌from ‌the‌ ‌middle‌ ‌school‌ ‌student‌ ‌council‌. They designed ‌a‌ ‌plan‌ ‌to‌ ‌make‌ ‌this‌ ‌year’s‌ ‌Headmaster’s‌ ‌Day‌ ‌fun‌ ‌as well as‌ ‌safe.‌
According‌ ‌to‌ ‌Smith,‌ ‌the‌ ‌plan‌ ‌is‌ ‌to‌ ‌have‌ ‌everyone‌ ‌take‌ ‌part‌ ‌in‌ ‌an‌ ‌activity‌ ‌at‌ ‌the‌ ‌same‌ ‌time,‌ ‌instead‌ ‌of‌ ‌having‌ ‌everyone‌ ‌sit‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌bleachers‌ ‌like‌ ‌in‌ ‌previous‌ ‌years.‌  
“‌The‌ ‌biggest‌ ‌change‌ ‌that‌ ‌I‌ ‌am‌ ‌excited‌ ‌about‌ ‌is‌ ‌that‌ ‌we‌ ‌have‌ ‌found‌ ‌more‌ ‌ways‌ ‌to‌ ‌keep‌ ‌the‌ middle‌ ‌school‌ ‌students‌ ‌involved‌ ‌the‌ ‌entire‌ ‌time‌ ‌rather‌ ‌than‌ ‌spending‌ ‌so‌ ‌much‌ ‌time‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌stands,”‌ ‌Smith‌ ‌said.‌ 
Students‌ ‌have‌ ‌the‌ ‌option ‌to‌ ‌choose‌ ‌their‌ ‌own‌ ‌activities.‌ ‌They‌ ‌can‌ ‌choose‌ ‌from‌ ‌all‌ ‌sorts‌ ‌of‌ activities‌ including ‌kickball,‌ ‌basketball,‌ ‌tennis and ‌lawn‌ ‌games‌.‌ Lawn games include cornhole, ladder ball, badminton, frisbees, and more. There‌ are‌ ‌many‌ ‌activities‌ ‌to‌ ‌choose‌ ‌from‌ ‌as‌ ‌well‌ ‌as‌ ‌choice‌ ‌of‌ ‌lunch.‌ ‌Students‌ ‌can‌ ‌choose‌ ‌from‌ ‌vegetarian‌ ‌options,‌ ‌as‌ ‌well‌ ‌as‌ ‌cheeseburgers,‌ ‌hamburgers,‌ ‌and‌ ‌more.‌ 
According‌ ‌to‌ ‌Dowdy,‌ ‌the‌ ‌middle‌ ‌school‌ ‌student‌ ‌council‌ ‌has‌ ‌made‌ ‌some‌ ‌adjustments‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ schedule,‌ ‌such‌ ‌as‌ ‌the‌ ‌middle‌ ‌school‌ ‌coming‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌morning‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌upper‌ ‌school‌ ‌coming‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ afternoon.‌ ‌He‌ ‌believes‌ ‌these‌ ‌changes‌ ‌will‌ ‌improve‌ ‌the‌ ‌day‌ ‌because‌ ‌everyone‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌involved.‌ 
“We’ve‌ ‌also‌ ‌reorganized‌ ‌the‌ ‌day‌ ‌a‌ ‌little‌ ‌bit,‌ ‌and‌ ‌actually,‌ ‌this‌ ‌is‌ ‌one‌ ‌of‌ ‌those‌ ‌times‌ ‌where‌ ‌I‌ ‌think‌ it’s‌ ‌better,‌ ‌because‌ ‌we’ve‌ ‌always‌ ‌had‌ ‌a‌ ‌little‌ ‌bit‌ ‌of‌ ‌a‌ ‌hard‌ ‌time‌ ‌having‌ ‌everyone‌ ‌involved‌ ‌a‌ ‌lot,”‌ ‌Dowdy‌ ‌said.‌
