I hope this month’s newsletter finds you well and adjusted to the new normal. I know this has been a challenging time for us all. I am so proud of our community and the teachers and staff at Trailwood. I believe everyone has handled a truly unprecedented end to the school year to the best of their abilities.
I will do my best to answer some lingering questions below. However, please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions!
Do we still receive yearbooks for the 2019-2020 school year?
YES! Yearbooks are already laid out for the year and you can still order one through Membership Toolkit up until May 15th. We will distribute them this summer or as soon as we are cleared to hold a distribution day. Please see the step by step directions on how to order below.
I bought a ticket at auction to a grade level party or event. Will these events still take place?
YES! All events will still be held…just at at later date! We are hopeful that most events can take place over the summer. Hosts will keep you informed on new dates!
Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up. Can we still celebrate our teachers?
YES! We would love to celebrate our amazing teachers now more than ever! Teacher Appreciation week is May 4th-8th. We would encourage Room Parents to send “E-gift cards” as a gift from the class if funds have already been collected. You are also welcome to utilize Venmo, etc. to collect from your class if you haven’t already. Some E-gift card ideas that can be easily purchased, emailed and used in our current condition are: Amazon, Target, Grubhub, Ubereats and Papa John’s. I would also encourage sending letters or videos to teachers with messages of thanks and appreciation!
Take Care Thunderbirds!
