Trees for The Trojan Trail: The Trojan Trail has been a great addition to the community. We have had tremendous positive feedback from it and lots of people in our community are using it. The next phase is to add some trees along the 3 mile path. We are entering tree planting season, and we will need to help make it happen. We could easily use 300 trees to help enhance the trail. Please consider sponsoring one or more trees. Tree cost varies but a good starter-type tree usually costs $75-$100. Perhaps your Sunday School class, civic group, business, or even your family would like to make a donation. If you have a tree and want to come plant it yourself, just let me know. If you would rather make a donation, you can either drop it by the main office at the school or you can give online. 100% of the donations will go toward buying and planting trees along the trail. Below is the link to give online. Thanks for your help.

Go to "Tree Donation"

Check out as a GUEST. Do not register for an account.

Season Pass: You may purchase a season pass this year that will get you into ALL Trojan athletic events excluding playoffs. These are on sale in the main office. You can also purchase online and pick them up in the main office.
