welcome, 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 Trailwood students.


save the date for happy hour and trivia night


Each February, Trailwood hosts its biggest fundraiser of the year, and this school year is no different! We can’t wait to enjoy a night out with everyone at our Happy Hour & Trivia Night on Saturday, February 25th, at 6 pm at the Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center!


Happy Hour will run from 6:00 - 7:00 pm, and then guests will come together and compete in our movie-themed Trivia Night. You can join for just the Happy Hour or create an 8-person table or buy individual tickets to be placed at grade-level tables.


For more information on this exciting event, please visit our event page!



family fun science night


Come one, come all to our annual Trailwood Science Night on February 16th from 5:30 - 7:00 pm. We have lots of amazing vendors (many coming to Trailwood for the first time ever!) who will have STEM-focused activities for kids of all ages!


Please join us for a fun-filled evening!

Let's surprise our kiddos and staff by creating a Winter Wonderland at Trailwood! We will meet at the school on Saturday, February 11th, from 10:30 am - 12:30 pm to decorate!

Volunteer as a wingman


As we kick off another school year at Trailwood, we're looking to refresh our roster of dads and father-figures to be part of our Wingman program! The group has completed numerous projects over the last few years including the ga-ga ball pit, picnic tables and a few others.


And, this year, we are excited to bring the Wingman program back to the classroom! Please consider taking a half-day or full-day out of your busy schedules and spending some time at Trailwood. This is a great opportunity to interact with the kids and see what they do every day! The schedule will vary depending on the needs of the day, but you can plan on spending a portion of your day with your kiddos (including lunch) but you may also be helping with other parts of the school, such as recess or specials.


Check your email for the Sign-Up Genius, and feel free to sign up whenever your schedule allows.


If you would like more information, please contact Eric Foreman.


    become an mvp and make a difference



As volunteers head back to the classrooms this fall, 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!


The next MVP training at Trailwood will take place on January 31st in the Commons at 8:30 am. No need to register for this event!


For more information on the MVP program and training dates, please use the link below. Please contact social worker Brenna Sandefur-Farrar if you have any additional questions.

We hope to see you there!
