Welcome back, thunderbirds!


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 students.


 become an mvp in the new year



As we open the doors back up to volunteers beginning January 3rd, please consider becoming an MVP! This designation is given to adult volunteers in SMSD who would like the opportunity to work with/supervise kids on their own. These relationships are positively powerful for the child (and the adult), and we can always use people to serve in this role!


If you are interested in becoming an MVP, please join us on January 19th at 6:30 pm in the Trailwood library for a training session. For more information on the MVP program or for additional training dates, please use the link below.





We hope you'll consider purchasing a PTA membership for the 2021-2022 school year! Becoming a member helps us in our efforts to support the students, families, teachers and staff of Trailwood Elementary! Memberships may be purchased using the link below.





Everyone is welcome to join us at our next PTA meeting! Meet us in the Trailwood Library (masks required) on Tuesday, February 15th, at 7:00 pm.
