Attitude of Gratitude

November ushers in the holiday season, and this month students have been encouraged to adopt an Attitude of Gratitude. Students recently participated in Thankful Thursday where they sent 'Thank You' notes to teachers of their choice. The response was overwhelming, as we received over 100+ thank you responses! They were shared with their teachers on Thursday as a kind gesture to show a little appreciation for the hard work throughout the year. The teachers were very touched to receive the sentiment from their students.

As we reflect on so many reasons to be thankful, we want to THANK YOU for your support, commitment, and dedication to helping your child during virtual learning.

~A Message from the Trailblazers Team~

Hello Parents/Guardians,

We are now halfway though the second quarter and I am sure we are all looking forward to Thanksgiving. Please encourage your child to make the effort to complete all outstanding work so they can have a most relaxing break. I continue to applaud those students who stay on task during independent work time and completing assignments and continue to encourage those who are not, to begin doing the same. Statistics show that there are nine million students in the USA who have neither wifi nor laptops. Over this Thanksgiving let us not forget the reason why we are learning remotely let’s give thanks for the efforts made by DPS officials, administrators, teachers and you parents who through a concerted effort have made it possible for your children to be able to get their education during this time. Let us be thankful for our lives and acknowledge the lives of the over 250,000 people lost to this pandemic. Stay safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
