SUBJECT: April 2021 PTA Newsletter

April 2, 2021

Hello, Trailwood Community!

It feels like Spring is finally here! With that, there are now only a couple of months left of this school year. Wow! I know I've said it before, but it is worth saying again and again. I'm continually so proud of how this community, teachers and staff have handled this unprecedented school year. 

Due to how Spring Break falls, the April general PTA meeting is pushed back a week. I hope you are still able to attend as we will have a very special guest, David Aramovich, the liaison for SMSD's Project H.O.M.E. You can find more information on our upcoming T-Birds Serve collection for this amazing service further in the newsletter.

The calendar is FULL. That's right, full with upcoming appreciation days, community partner events, TW Golf Tournament, and meeting information. 

I hope you all have a safe and wonderful Spring Break!

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

Stay safe and be well!

Go Thunderbirds!

Tracy Hugunin, PTA President

Incoming Kindergarten Parents/Guardians,  

We always look forward to Kindergarten Round-Up. This is an annual fun, informative  event. Our plan for Round-Up is a little different this year.  

* On March 31st, a SMSD kindergarten presentation was emailed that also included Trailwood specific information. Please read through that presentation and submit any questions you have to the Google Form that was also sent that day. We will plan to have answers for your questions by the night of Round-Up.  

* We want to offer an opportunity for parents and kids to visit Trailwood in person between 6:00-7:30 p.m. on April 14th. We also need to continue following our COVID safety protocols. Because of this, we will limit the number of people inside Trailwood at the same time.  

Our plan includes: 

* 1 parent per child  

* 4 families max per classroom at a time (8 people plus 1 teacher)  

* Adults and kids required to wear masks while in the building

* 15 minute windows for classroom visits  

* Parents can sign up for a convenient time slot via Sign-Up Genius  

* The office will assign classroom teachers for families based on availability. This  will not necessarily be your child’s teacher in August.  

* The secretary, PTA president, nurse, JCPRD director and principal will be available for questions.  

Please contact the office at 993-5600 if you have any questions. We are eager to meet  you and the kids!
