Principal Updates

Dear Trailside Families,

Students have completed their Spring MAP assessments in both reading and math. The family reports will be mailed home by the end of the week.

We have just a little over six weeks of school remaining. Spring is always a challenging time as students are getting anxious for summer. This is normally the time of year where we see an uptick in behaviors which results in discipline. Our goal is always for students to learn form their mistakes. My intention is to be proactive with students and families and have discussions about school appropriate behavior. I appreciate your support.

all my best,

Bridget Beichler

Last chance for a yearbook

The yearbook company has approximately 95 extra TMS yearbooks to purchase. You can purchase one through the portal below. Once these yearbooks have been purchase, we will not have any to purchase in person at the end of the year.


Collection for Guilford:

We are collecting gently used and clean used clothing for the students at Guilford. If you are cleaning out drawers and closets and would like to donate, the following items are needed:

Girls and boys pants, shorts, sweat pants, jeans sizes Pre-K through Fifth grade

Girls and boys shirts, both short and long sleeve

New: bras for 4th and fifth graders, under wear

Donations may be dropped off in the entrance of the school.

The SCA is sponsoring a New Book Drive for our sister school, Guilford Elementary, for our Spring Service Project. The drive is going on from now until May 16th.

Collection boxes can be found in each house office area. Please donate new elementary level books. We'd love to send as many students as possible home with the gift of a new book for the summer! Thanks for your support.
