It's hard to believe that May is here and that the last day of school is fast approaching! It has been a pleasure and a privilege to serve as your PTA President this year. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of our amazing PTA.

As I look back on this year, I am filled with so much gratitude for our wonderful Trailwood community. Thank you for the many ways you have supported our PTA. Whether you chaired a committee, made a donation, shared your time and talents as a volunteer, or became a PTA member, you made an impact this year! Your support allowed us to plan some fantastic events for our kiddos, celebrate our wonderful staff, provide enrichment materials and activities for classrooms, and so much more! Thank you for helping us to make it all happen! It takes a village, and I am so grateful for ours.

Enjoy these last days of the school year, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about upcoming PTA events. Enjoy your summer!
