Trinity Students Stay Connected Outside of Class

Posted: Updated:

A fire at Trinity High School last week didn't keep students out of the classroom for long.
They were in class on Monday and are already back to their extracurricular's.

Trinity band teacher Jeff Dasovick says he was a little nervous about how the band would sound after it couldn't practice for a week.

But the students really brought their A-game this morning for their first rehearsal after the fire that damaged not only their school, but all their instruments and music.

Hitting the right notes isn't easy when a band can't play together.

But support from across North Dakota has put the Trinity band's movement.

"I got e-mails, phone calls and text messages from all my colleagues that said whatever we can do to help, just let us know. The music community, we're small in number, we're kind of spread out all over southwest North Dakota, but there's a lot of connection between everybody," says Dasovick.

The band almost fell flat when it lost all its instruments and music in last week's fire.

And we can either crumble under the pressure, or we can stand up and not make excuses and give our absolute best.

But now, they're practicing at Dickinson State University (DSU) with instruments from the school and Jacobsen Music store in Dickinson.

"It's a wonderful partnership demonstrating the core values of the Dickinson community of coming together and believe in each other and doing things together," says DSU president D.C. Coston.

And while the Trinity band is getting a lot of help from DSU, they're also getting their music from Dickinson High School and Century in Bismarck.

"I didn't think we were going to be able to practice this fast and I'm very grateful we were able to. Band, we were always a big family from the beginning and coming back together has just brought us closer because we know we need each other and we know we're always there for each other," says Trinity sophomore Lizzy Tibor.

The band has a festival performance next Monday.

Band isn't the only activity up and running. Track and field started practice yesterday, and the Science Olympiad team is competing tomorrow.
