September 2, 2022

Hello Thunderbird families! Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! My name is Cara Peterson, and I am this year’s PTA president. I have three children at Trailwood. Avery is in 6th grade, Norah is in 3rd grade, and Kellen is in Kindergarten. I have loved our family’s time at Trailwood, and I am looking forward to a fun year ahead with our Trailwood community!


We are off to an exciting start! It’s been wonderful to see so many smiling faces at some of our favorite back-to-school events, such as the Popsicle Pop-In, Welcome Back Coffee Hours, Back to School Night, and the T-Bird Trot! Be on the look-out for more fun activities coming up in the month of September!


I’d like to invite you to join us for our first PTA meeting of the year on September 13th, following Donuts with Grownups. You will have a chance to get know other Trailwood families, learn more about the PTA and hear from Mr. Lawrence. If you can’t make the meeting but would like to get involved with the PTA, please don’t hesitate to reach out anytime! And, don’t forget to check the website and Facebook page often for upcoming volunteer opportunities. We truly have something for everyone!


I hope that the school year is off to a great start for everyone! I look forward to seeing you at a PTA event soon! Go Thunderbirds!


Cara Peterson

Become a PTA Member

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! Becoming a member doesn’t obligate you to attend meetings or volunteer your time (although, we’d love to have you join us at all of our events)! You can be as involved as you’d like!  

Memberships are $10 each and may be purchased at https://www.trailwoodpta.com/form/m/204040. While there, you can also pay for your child’s yearbook and yearly activity fee. Thank you for your support of Trailwood Elementary!
