Today, It was such an honor to host veterans who are a part of our Trailblazer family for lunch. We appreciate their commitment and the sacrifices they made for our country, and we are grateful for their continued love and support of our students. It was also nice having Superintendent Hanna stop by our special luncheon, too. Did you know he’s a veteran, too? He served 8 years in the Army. Just a reminder, no school tomorrow in honor of Veterans Day. See you Monday! More pictures coming soon.

We changed the name of our faculty meetings to Family Gatherings. Our Trailblazer teachers had fun this afternoon checking in with “their person” to see how they are doing after the first nine-weeks of school and then they enjoyed making message/friendship bracelets. Great conversations and laughter was in abundance.
