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.


join us at the halloween parade


While we will not have parent guests in the building or traditional room parties this year, we would like to invite parents and guardians to an outdoor costume parade!


Parents are invited to observe from outside the big playground fence at 2:30 pm on Friday, October 29th. Kids will walk on the track around the large field and across the blacktop playground. They will make this loop two times before going back in to class for a normal dismissal. We hope you'll join us!
