Message from Principal Perkins (5 Instructional Days Left in Quarter 4)

Happy Sunday Trix Family!

It is the final lap and our scholars and teachers have finally made it to the finish line for the 2021-2022 school year. I want to take a moment to express my gratitude and thanks for your incredible efforts in support your scholars during this trying school year. Even in the midst of a pandemic you allowed your scholars to return to the school building through all our mitigation effort as well as remote instruction. Your commitment to your scholars remained steadfast.

Without you none of this would be possible and on behalf of the Trix Academy Staff we say Thank You for your flexibility and for continued support!

Have a phenomena summer and we look forward to seeing you Fall 2022.


Ms. L. Perkins, M.Ed
