• What's Howling at Trailside?

    From the Principal


    Dear Trailside Families;
    We are almost through the first quarter of the school year.  It is hard to believe how quickly this quarter has gone by.  There have been many hurdles and we have made it through them all together as a school community.  The month of September we focused on the SEL trait of Respect.  Students were reminded of what it means to be respectful at home, in the community, and in school.  Many students were able to turn in slips of paper that shared the different ways they were respectful.  After they shared, they received a pencil.  The month of October, we will be focusing on responsibility.  Remind your children what it means to be responsible and how they can be responsible at home and at school.  We will focus on a character trait each month this school year.  
    We are in cohort 3 of the bus cohorts.  This means Trailside has no general education buses for three weeks.  I know this is not easy for families and I thank you for still getting your children to school each day.  I will send out more information to you closer to October 24th as far as which busses will be running for that three-week time frame.  
    The month of October will be busy with many things taking place.  We will have parent-teacher conferences on the 26th and 27th.  On both days, students get dismissed at 12:30 so teachers can meet with parents.  The 28th is a day off for students.  
    Please note the following dates:
    October 21st, no school for students
    October 26th, early release at 12:30 for parent-teacher conferences
    October 27th, early release at 12:30 for parent-teacher conferences
    October 28th, no school for students
    October 28th will be our fall festival for families.  We are so excited to be able to have it again this year.  It has been a while so I hope everyone is able to attend.  The PTA puts on a great festival and there are many activities for families to take part in.  We encourage you to dress up, but remember to make it appropriate for school.  We will have students of all ages, so not too scary either.  The 5th and 6th grades will be managing the concession stand as a fundraiser for the 5th and 6th-grade camp that happens in the spring.  This will take place from 5:30-7:00.  You can pre-purchase tickets or you can purchase them at the door for the activities.  
    November 8th is going to be a day that is new to the calendar.  I know this is not for another month, but I wanted to explain it to you since we have not done this before.  The district has created an asynchronous day.  Teachers will send work home for your child to complete on the 7th, for the 8th.  Students will not be coming to school that day.  Please have them bring the work back to the teacher on the 9th that they complete the day of the 8th.  This is new this year, so I wanted to give you ample notice that there is no school on November 8th.  
    Have a wonderful day,
    Heather Jones, Principal
    Trailside Elementary School
