Trailblazer’s Art Showcased at Young Masters

Over 100 pieces of amazing art work was displayed at the Blossom Athletic Center during The Young Masters Art Exhibit on Thursday, March 31st. Art pieces from all grade levels were showcased. What left me speechless was listening to students share with their parents the techniques they used when creating their art and the history of the artist who originally created the art. I was truly impressed by every piece. Congratulations Trailblazers!

Trailblazers Shine at Special Olympics

I also had the chance to attend the NEISD Special Olympics track and field competition last Friday. What an uplifting opportunity for all the students who participated and student volunteers. It was truly an amazing event. Our first grade leaders had a send-off for our athletes competing in the competition. They lined the hallways giving high-fives and cheered them on. I was so proud of of our all our Trailblazers!

Fun, Food and Games were a Hit at RF Carnival

A very special thank you goes out to our PTA for such a successful Carnival. I would especially like to thank the 2015-2016 PTA Officers, Committee Chairs, and volunteers for their many volunteer hours they gave to our school for this particular event. The weather was a little chilly but our Trailblazers had a blast!
