signupgenius.com Hello! On Thursday, December 12, the PTA will be hosting a luncheon for the teachers and staff at Trailside Middle School. We will have our annual cookie exchange for the staff at that time as well. Each wonderful staff member will get to take home one dozen cookies made by parents and PTA members.....
[11/23/19] We had a great turnout for Spirit Night, it was great seeing so many Trailside kids! If you went, we'd love to know if you'd like to see this multi-location spirit night again in the future.
Hope to see you there!
Sorry for the last-minute reminder, hope it's not too late for many!
[11/13/19] Warm food on a cold night. Hope to see more Timberwolves here!
This looks like a good information session to attend
As PTA leaders in our schools, we know technology plays a large role in how our children are learning. Understanding digital wellness helps families play, learn, connect and grow together. As our world becomes increasingly digital, the solution doesn’t lie in eliminating technology, but rather by making technology work for our students and actively evaluating how it is being used to ultimately better the learning experience.
We are excited to announce a new Parent Information Session in collaboration with LCPS on Students' Use of Technology in Schools!

Don't forget about Spirit Night at Burger Fi and Rita's! Remember to mention Trailside and put your receipt in the bucket at Burger Fi.
The theme for the 2019-2020 PTA Reflections Program is: “Look Within.” The Reflections Program is a National PTA Arts in Education Program that allows children to express their creativity in six different categories. These categories are: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts (2D and 3D). There is even a special artists category where students identified as having a disability and may receive services under IDEA or ADA: Section 504 may enter in the Special Artist Division or grade division most closely aligned to their functional abilities.
It is the most popular National PTA Program conducted annually. If you would like more information, go to https://www.vapta.org/programs/arts-and-education/reflections-top
All Trailside MS Students are eligible to participate!
There is no cost to participate!
You will find the rules as well as the entry form for the contest on the above website or in the main office at school. The deadline for all entries is November 6, 2019. There will be a box in the office to submit your finished entries.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Bob Wright or any of the PTA officers.
Thank you for your interest in the Reflections Program.

Our 2019-2020 board is excited about the new school year! In order to provide continued support to the students, staff, and families we need more volunteers to maintain our annual activities. I know sometimes it seems intimidating to sign up for a job like "coordinator" or "chair" but it doesn't have to be. We're all in this together, ask a friend to co-chair or co-coordinate with you, get more friends to create the team to get the job done. It's true that many hands make light work, and it's also true that the more the merrier. Let's be the best PTA we can be, together! If you're interested in any of the listed positions or if you have ideas of other activities that benefit our school, please email either Gwen Meehan (secretary), [email protected], or Bob Wright (Vice President - Activities), [email protected]. I'm looking forward to a great school year!
