• What's Howling at Trailside?

  • From the Principal 

    November 3, 2021


    Dear Trailside Families;


    November is the time to think about all the things we can give thanks for.  A few things that immediately come into my mind are my family, my husband and two children, my Trailside community, the amazing Trailside staff, the beautiful setting I get to work in each day, and the community in which I am able to work with each and every day.


    I am so impressed with the students at Trailside.  They are working so hard to learn and maintain their knowledge throughout this school year.  Our staff is diligently working with our students on reading and math and utilizing the WIN groups to help students catch up with specific skills or to help push students further in their knowledge.  Throughout the day, staff work to infuse the science skills and the social studies skills into the reading and math curriculum.  To help with this, the district has made the following statement regarding schools focus of resources; In an effort to best support our elementary students, many of whom continue to struggle academically as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, schools are working to focus their resources in a manner that best supports the instructional priorities of English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics.  You may see staff that has elected to only report grades in the subjects of ELA and Math.  If this is the case, you will see a written note in the comments section explaining why a grade may not be present. 


    The district is offering to families if you are interested and choose to have your child vaccinated, some clinics in the evenings and weekends at the district office.  If you are interested, click this link to find more information.


    A friendly reminder that bus 403 is not running November 1-19.  If you ride that bus and need assistance getting your child to school, please contact the front office and ask for Karen.  She will be happy to help you. 


    There is no school for students on November 11th.  Teachers will be having training all day while students are home.  Thanksgiving break begins on November 25th and students don’t return to school until Monday, November 29th.  I hope you are able to take time with your family on the 25th and 26th and then through the weekend. 


    I wish you all a fantastic November.  If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to me.  I am here to help and assist in any way.  You can call the front office at 907-742-5500 or send me an email at jones_heather@asdk12.org
