• What's Howling at Trailside?

    From the Principal

    April 1, 2023



    Trailside Families;
    Dear Trailside Parents,
    April is here and with that comes longer days and more time outside.  It has been wonderful to see more sunshine and watch the snow slowly melt away.  With all the snow, it doesn't feel like it is ever leaving.  

    The next time you visit the school, you might see some new posters around the school. The Anchorage School District will be rolling out a new program called STOPit.  This program empowers students to anonymously report online harassment, bullying, alcohol or drug use, depression, campus violence, school vandalism, or to help friends in need. The report goes directly to school administrators or counselors. STOPit is completely anonymous to help protect the reporter.  If you would like more information about STOPit, please visit the following website, https://www.asdk12.org/stopit.


    When you get a chance, please check out the district's website on this program.  Please let me know if you have any questions.


    I wanted to share with you a video that shares how the program can be used within the school setting.  Here is a parent video; Parent Video (2 minute introduction to STOPit for families).  Teachers will all be trained on this program this week.  


    We are working on statewide AK Star testing this week. Students are doing great, and I am always so impressed with their hard work throughout these days.  


    Thank you for all you do.  It is important that we work together each year to ensure the best possible outcome for all students.  I appreciate each of you.  


    Please let me know if you need anything at all.  I am here to support.
