2022-2023 School wide Goals
- 10% Growth on ELA AND MATH on State Assessments - MSTEP
60% of scholars will meet their yearly NWEA Growth Target in ELA and Math.
90% SCHOLAR PERSISTENCE -It is important that our scholars stay with Trix Academy in order to see the Academic Growth they need to be High School Ready!
90% STAFF RETENTION - Keeping our staff in place year after year also ensures that not only are relationships built with our scholars and families, mastery in instruction is also taking place.
95% AVERAGE DAILY ATTENDANCE - Scholars have to be in the building daily in order to learn. We want to build and foster a community of learning that values daily attendance.

Message from Principal Perkins
Good evening Trix Families,
Happy New Year Trix Academy Parents, Guardians and Scholars. I hope all had a wonderful two weeks vacation and enjoyed their time off, got rest, and enjoyed family and friends.
Quarter 2 is almost over and it is time to reset our approach to attendance. The month of November and December we saw an increase in truancy of our scholars. Parents have the most important role in ensuring scholars are in school, all day and daily. We must make sure all scholars have the best opportunities for academic success and it starts with them being in school and in front of teachers everyday.
You should have receive letters from me if you have a scholar(s) who have missed up to 15 days of school this school year. If your scholar(s) have missed more than 15 days of school, an attendance contract will be required. Be on the look out for a call from our attendance department to set up parent meetings.
We have to work together to close the academic gap of success many of our scholars are facing. We want our scholars to have choices and opportunities for success in life and this can happen if they are academically sound and grade level proficient. So PLEASE, I am asking parent to make sure your scholars are in the building daily and in school all day.
Lastly, we have a MANDATORY parent meeting on January 17th to discuss our school wide attendance issue. Attendance Works will be in here to assist with resources for parents as well. Below are the times to meet in the Trix Academy Gym.
- K-4th 8:45-9:20
- 5th-8th 9:30-10
Again we must work as a team to ensure our scholars success.
LET'S WIN THE WEEK!!!!
New In Door Dismissal Procedure
Effective Monday, January 9, 2023, to ensure scholar safety, Trix Academy will incorporate indoor dismissal until further notice.
Our dismissal process will go as follows:
Parents will drive to the Trix Academy Pick Up Sign (In Green ) located at the corner of Fairmont and Fairport to give the name and grade of your scholar to the Trix Staff Members. The staff member will radio your scholar's name for pick up and parents will drive around to the JoAnn Street Side of the building with the double door. Look for the dismissal Sign In Red.
All scholars will be prepared and waiting in the gym and hallways for parent arrivals.
Parents who walk to pick up scholars, please come to the main doors for pickup assistant.
Walkers will be dismissed at 3:25.
Also the Main Doors will open for scholars at 7:30 so that NO Scholars will be outside prior to the school day.

Happy New Families!
As we embark on a new year, 2023, let's move forward into the new year focused and determined for our students to win. Parents, please continue to remind your children about the importance of following all school rules, procedures and expectations. Please remember that uniforms are required daily for all students. Also make sure your student is in dress code each and everyday.
