Welcome to the Trailwood Elementary School PTA website! Our PTA is a dedicated group of parents, teachers, and administrators who work together to provide resources and programs to all families in our school community. The PTA supports the quality of education at Trailwood Elementary with strategic investments in curriculum materials, enrichment and instructional programs, and general support of our community that directly enhance the school's mission of excellence for all Trailwood students.
The Clothing Exchange is in full swing and busier than ever!
With need in our community higher than ever before, the goal of helping all SMSD students to be better prepared for school is at an all time high! You make the difference!! Volunteers are needed each Thursday evening from 4-7p.m. Please consider volunteering by signing up at this Clothing Exchange Volunteer Sign-Up Genius link Moving forward, the CE is also looking for 1-2 people to add to the Clothing Exchange Committee, who would dedicate approximately 8 hours per week on an ongoing basis. Please keep in mind, the Clothing Exchange does not accept household items, furniture, toys, baby items (such as car seats, beds, etc). Only clothing of any size, shoes, bedding and towels. Tips and Requests All details can also be found HERE.
6th Grade Articulation Night
The 6th Grade Indian Woods Articulation Night has been postponed. Date and Location are TBD at this time. (Please check back for updates)
Let's help our TW Library get the books from Mrs. Fritz's wish list for the library! Without the TBird Trot to help raise funds, every little bit helps!
Please help the Yearbook Committee by uploading photos for the yearbook. (Sports, friends, school work, volunteering, etc.) Since we aren't able to be present in the school we are relying on supplied photos. Thank you!!
It goes without saying that our community is strong, caring and so talented -- Pandemic or NO!!! Please make sure to congratulate these AMAZINGLY talented, dedicated and hardworking Thunderbirds for the following achievements:
Brynn Weiss Intermediate, Literature TRAILWOOD AWARD OF EXCELLENCE
We All Matter I chose to write about three people who think that they are useless because it shows that everyone has a purpose in this world. You may find yours earlier or later than other people, but everyone matters. You, your friends, your family, and everyone you've ever known make your mark on the planet, and no matter where you choose to go or why you do these things you matter. This story shows the important lesson that nobody matters more or less than one another, and everyone ever has a purpose.
District Level Award of Merit
Elyse Keairns Visual Arts, Intermediate TRAILWOOD AWARD OF EXCELLENCE
Peacemakers In the world right now, there is a lot of fighting. This piece shows two friends that are different but alike. They matter because they both want the world to be a better place. A world that is peaceful and equal.
District Level Honorable Mention
Kennedy Jones Visual Arts, Middle School Intermediate TRAILWOOD AWARD OF EXCELLENCE
"WE" Matter I chose to replace "I" with "WE" because I only matter if we all matter. We all matter for the reasons that I put on my artwork.

Strands of Me This artwork is about what really matters about me. It also shows the qualities I have. What really matters isn’t on the outside, it’s on the inside!
