opportunities to impact trailwood



 Looking for ways to get involved at Trailwood Elementary? Want to support our larger SMSD community? Check back often for upcoming opportunities to benefit our school community both virtually and in-person! Please reach out to PTA President, Jamie Reasons, with any questions.


be a committee chair



We have lots of committees in need of chairs for the 2023-2024 school year. Please click on the link below for a list of available positions and descriptions. And, reach out to Jamie Reasons if you have additional questions.



Volunteer in the cafeteria


Please consider helping out in the cafeteria this year! Our little kiddos oftentimes need assistance opening food/drink containers, a listening ear, or just help with clean-up when lunch is over. Take a look at the sign up below, and find a day that works with your schedule!


Thank you for helping to make our lunch period run smoothly!




classroom volunteers



If you are interested in volunteering in your child’s classroom, please be sure to contact your teacher as she may have opportunities.


If you are interested in volunteering in more of a general way (in a different classroom than your child, in one of the specials rooms, etc.), please contact Cher Brownback with PTA for assistance in finding an opportunity that fits your interests! You do not need to be MVP certified to volunteer and assist teachers or students in a classroom. You do need to be MVP certified to directly supervise students without a Trailwood staff member present (such as by providing small group support in the hallway).


Thank you for your consideration!


BECOME AN MVP and make a difference



We hope you'll consider becoming an MVP this year! This designation is given to adult volunteers in SMSD who would like the opportunity to work with/supervise kids on their own. These relationships are positively powerful for the child (and the adult), and we can always use people to serve in this role!

 dining partners


We are so grateful to our many community partners for their commitment to Trailwood Elementary! Enjoy some yummy food, support our generous community sponsors and give back to Trailwood - all at the same time! Mention Trailwood Elementary when you check out!


Be on the lookout for additional dining partner events coming up soon! 

wingman program


Calling all Trailwood dads and father figures!


Please consider taking a half-day or full-day out of your busy schedules and spending some time in your child's classroom as a Wingman! This is a great opportunity to interact with the kids and see what they do every day! Your schedule will vary depending on the needs of the day, but you can plan on spending most of your day with your kiddo(s) in the classroom, on the playground or at specials.


Volunteers can choose the dates and times (half-days or full-days) and can float between classrooms (if more than one child is attending Trailwood). Sign up at the link below.


Please contact Leif Peterson with any questions.
