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!

10/09/2019

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!

Good evening! My name is Daniel Jackson, and I am the Director of Vocal Music at Stone Bridge High School. I know this may be a bit weird, but I would really like to form stronger connections with the performing arts department at Trailside. So many of your best and brightest have blessed our program, and have made a huge impact on our SBHS community. But i also feel as if you may not know a lot about us. So, I'd like to invite you all to our dessert concert on Tuesday, Feb. 20, at 7pm. Tickets are $5. You'll get wonderful sweets and musical treats. Thanks for reading this! If you have you any questions about the program, please email at [email protected] Come and get to us know.
Tickets go on sale at lunch tomorrow, on sale on PTA school store & at the door. BAKE SALE ITEMS NEEDED!!! THANK YOU!!
