March 5, 2021

Hello, Trailwood Community!

It is truly hard to believe it has been a whole year since our worlds were rocked because of COVID. Though so much has happened and there are still so many unknowns, I have been so proud of how this community, staff, teachers, and especially students have continued to rise to the occasion. Here's to continuing to persevere! 

I hope those that were able to attend our #TrailwoodStrong auction and trivia enjoyed the evening. Thank you for supporting this event and continuing to support your PTA! For more details on item pick up and to check on the overall success of the auction, please see the post further in this newsletter. 

Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns!

Stay safe and be well!

Go Thunderbirds!

Tracy Hugunin, PTA President
