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 Trailwood students.


t-bird trot is back!


The T-Bird Trot is BACK! Join us to kick off the school year with this fun Thunderbird tradition. On Saturday, August 27th, we'll meet on the playground at 9:00 am to warm up before for the walk/run begins. Afterwards, we'll celebrate with donuts and a DJ dance party on the playground!


Cost is $5 per person. Use the link below to register. Registration is open until August 25th. 




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!


For more information on the MVP program and training dates, please use the link below.





We hope you'll consider purchasing a PTA membership for the 2022-2023 school year! Becoming a member helps us in our efforts to support the students, families, teachers and staff of Trailwood Elementary! Memberships will be available for purchase at the beginning of the school year. Check back here for more information!
