What a night!!

Thank you to everyone who attended our Back to School Carnival, and a huge thank you to all of our volunteers - TRHS students, staff and TBE families!

We had such a great night and hope you did too! Share more of your own photos below. We’d love to see them!

It’s time for the Blazer Bash + Back to School Carnival!! Tonight from 5-8PM.

Did you already get your wristbands? Great!
If not, you can grab them here: https://tbepto.square.site

We’ll have 3 big inflatables, lots of carnival games + prizes, popcorn, face painting, music and fun!

Plus 3 food trucks: Mile High Kona Ice, M & M Western Grill and now Philly on The Go.

We are incredibly grateful for Philly on the Go to be stepping up for our school on such short notice. We learned last night that Beau Jo’s food truck has been broken since July 21, but they unfortunately never notified us that they wouldn’t be coming. So please support these wonderful trucks that are coming tonight! 💙

08/16/2023

Did you hear the fun news from last night at Back to School Night? We’re spreading that Explorer pride throughout the neighborhood!

The PTO is giving away these Trailblazer yard signs for free! Anyone who would like to display one in their front yard, please pick one up at the front office or at the Blazer Bash + Back to School Carnival on Friday night.

One per household please.

Hello TBE families!

Pirate's Cove Water Park was able to reschedule our private night for Sunday, August 13, 6-8PM.

***If you are unable to attend due to the date change, or know of a family looking for tickets, please communicate below on THIS post thread.***

It is up to families to coordinate giving/selling your tickets to others (collecting cash, Venmo, etc). You do not need to contact us to change the name on the tickets, just enter under the original purchaser's name please.

Thank you for your help and understanding with the rescheduling. We think we're pretty organized, but we still can't control the weather (yet...). :)

08/02/2023

Hey TBE! We need a few helping hands this THURSDAY at 6:15pm!

Our wonderful USA map has a few states left to be repainted, and we’d love to get them completed before school begins.

Bring your kids to play on the playground while we quickly paint!

Comment below if you can come. Thank you!

Hello TBE families!

Pirate's Cove just called and unfortunately due to continued lightning delays, they are having to close for the rest of the night.

They did inform us that they potentially have make-up dates for August 12 or August 13, and they will confirm that first thing in the morning.

We are so sad that our event won't happen tonight, but look forward to another fun night (without a storm and flood watch!).

Thanks!

08/01/2023

Hi all!!

We just talked with Pirates Cove and IF they cancel due to weather, they will call us ASAP.

Keep those fingers crossed!

Hello Trailblazer Families!

We are so excited to welcome you back for the 2023/2024 school year! I hope you all had a fantastic summer break! Mine was filled with family, friends, and lots of pool time. I was also lucky enough to take a couple of vacations and catch up on some much needed rest. I am really looking forward to the start of a new school year, and I hope you are too!

Whether you are new to the TBE community or returning, we are so happy that you will be joining us for another wonderful school year at Trailblazer Elementary! This is a very special place, and we are so excited to welcome all of our students and families back. We can’t wait to make new friends, new memories, and share lots of laughter.

There are always staffing changes that happen over the summer, and I’d like to fill you in on some positions. We have hired Mary Senkosky, a part time psychologist, who will be here on Thursdays and Fridays. We are so excited to have her and to have been allotted more mental health positions this year! We are still looking for a part time social worker or psychologist to join us for a 3 day/week position. We were also allocated a full time Gifted and Talented teacher, which is great news! Christina Marriott, our current GT teacher, will be working 4 days a week as we look to hire another part time teacher to support her. We are still looking for some special education assistants, so if you know of anyone who might be interested in any of these positions, please let us know and encourage them to apply!

We are sad to say that Ms. Tesar, Ms. Peachey, Mrs. Hershman, and Mrs. Fulwider will be leaving Trailblazer. They have taken opportunities at other schools or districts, or have decided to explore other options. We will miss them dearly and wish them the best of luck! We have hired Brooke Cole as our first grade teacher, Tabitha Kim as our art teacher, and Teri Duffey as our Speech/Language Pathologist. They will be excellent additions to Trailblazer! We are still looking for the perfect person to hire for second grade. You’ll be getting a quick snapshot of our staff once the school year gets started so you can get to know a little more about each person who works at Trailblazer and makes it the best school ever!

We have gotten some great news from the district that will help us grow our enrollment for the next several years. Trailblazer is now the overflow school for Coyote Creek Elementary, which means that we will be receiving many students that were originally designated to Coyote Creek. As the neighborhoods in Solstice and Sterling Ranch continue to grow, Coyote Creek will quickly reach its capacity. The district has agreed to designate two neighborhoods in those areas to Trailblazer to help with growth. Our enrollment will continue to go up, and we will even have a bus this year! We are so excited to welcome more students and families to Trailblazer!

I know everyone is anxious to find out their teachers for next year! Children will receive their class placements on Thursday, July 27th, by 4:00. Please know that intentional care is used to meet the unique academic and social emotional needs of each of our students in creating balanced classroom communities. This is an important task that we take seriously as a school team. We consider the best interests of every child. With that in mind, please know that assignments are complete and no changes will be made to classroom assignments. Adjustments to change one child’s teacher creates a domino effect for the balance of all grade level classes. Thank you for trusting our staff in this process. We are excited for a fantastic year!

We will be having a Meet and Greet on Friday, August 4th, from 2:30-4:00. This will be for 1st-6th grade students and parents, as Kindergarten has their own Meet and Greet at a separate time (Kindie teachers will reach out to schedule this time). Meet and Greet is a chance for students and parents to come into the building, meet teachers, check out the classrooms and drop off supplies.

I am looking forward to seeing familiar faces and welcoming those who are new to our community! Please join us for Trailblazer Night at Pirate’s Cove on August 1st. We still have tickets available on the PTO website. It’s going to be a blast! See you soon, and enjoy the last few weeks of summer! Please check below for some important dates.

Trailblazer Elementary School is proud to be one of just 10 DCSD schools to receive both the John Irwin AND the Governor's Distinguished Improvement awards.

The John Irwin award is given to schools that demonstrate exceptional academic achievement over time. These schools received an Exceeds Expectations rating on the Academic Achievement indicator of the School Performance Frameworks reflecting exceptional performance in Math, English Language Arts, and Science. These schools represent the top 5% of schools in the state of Colorado.

The Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Awards is given to schools that demonstrate exceptional student growth. These schools "exceed" expectations related to longitudinal academic growth and "meet or exceed" expectations on the indicator related to academic growth gaps.

Way to go, TBE!

Did you know that many of our teachers have an Amazon wishlist for their classroom? The lists are filled with fun things that will help them throughout the year.

As the start of school gets closer (and Amazon hosts their huge Prime Day sales on July 11 + 12), take a peek at the lists and see if there is anything your family would like to buy! It would sure make our teachers happy and grateful!

Trailblazer Elementary PTO Anyone can donate items that are on the lists below and donors can even leave a message letting the teacher know how much they are appreciated. Also, donated items are delivered directly to Trailblazer, which makes the whole process so easy!
