• What's Howling at Trailside?

    From the Principal
    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year.  I am so excited for this year to start.  Summer was great but I have always loved the first day of school.  There are so many excited students, parents and staff.  I have the best job ever as I get to enjoy this time of the year over and over throughout my career.  
    A few things for you to be aware of:
    *We will host a meet and greet on August 17th from 3:00-4:00 on the playground.  You can come and meet your child's teacher and get a treat from our PTA.  
    *Please consider joining PTA.  They do such amazing activities for our school.  They fund field trips, after-school activities, family nights, and much more.  You can sign up on their website at https://trailsidepta.memberhub.com/store. You can either click the link to sign up online or print the form and return it to the office.  
    *You can find out who your child's teacher is on the 17th via Parent Connect.  We make changes to class lists based on enrollments until about 2:30 on the 17th, so please don't check the system until after 2:30.  Staff will be around the playground with class lists to tell you who your child's teacher is if you don't have time to check.  Lists will not be posted on the windows as they were three years ago.  They will only be available via parent connect OR asking a staff member at the meet and greet.  
    *We will start this school year with a school wide project.  Students will read a story at school called Only One You by Llinda Kranz.  One activity that students will participate in is creating their own fish by painting a rock.  Students will paint the rock at school.  Please have your child bring a small rock that they can donate to the classroom for painting.  Once all students have painted one, we will put them in the planter out front to make it look like a stream of fish.  Please only send small rocks that fit in the palm of your hand.  Larger rocks will not be used.  
    *We will have an open house this year in September, so please watch for that information through blackboard notifications.  
    *The first day of school for 1st grade through 12th grade is August 18th.  Preschool and Kindergarten start on August 25th.  
    *Fall pictures for the school year are on September 23rd.  
    I think that is all for now.  Enjoy the last few days of summer before school starts.  
    I look forward to working with each of you this year.  School-to-home communication is essential for positive progress.   Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have questions or concerns.  You can email me at jones_heather@asdk12.org or call the office at 742-5500.
