Title 1 Parent Survey - Click Here to Complete

Trexler has been identified as a Title I School. As part of this new identification, our goal is to connect with parents in more meaningful ways. Please take this brief survey to help us learn more about your involvement interest areas. Thank you!

Softball Team Wins Championship

The Trexler Falcons Girls Softball Team ended the season with an 8-0 record and was named Conference Champions. Erika Treusch and Alyiah Torres dominated the defense by pitching several shutout games. Behind them were Kyleigh Baker at third base, Caroline Cubas at shortstop, Alexis Edwards at second, Annabel Rocha or Aurea Ryba at first, and Darby Brinson at catcher. In the outfield was Lacey Hardison or Kaydin Williams in left field, Mallory Foy or Keira Ryba in centerfield, and Jessie Killough or Claire Marriott in right field. The offense was led by the returning eight graders who hit one through five in the batting lineup. These players demonstrated great discipline and sportsmanship in every game. They worked hard and gave 110%, and it paid off. Go FALCONS!

Don't Forget Those Boxtops

Did you know that Box Tops for Education can benefit Trexler? Trexler AVID students have organized a school-wide collection to benefit the TMS AVID program. Box Tops can add up very quickly because they are available on several products. This is a great way to earn money for the school by simply cutting out the Box Tops on your grocery items and sending them to school with your student. Visit btfe.com for more information and a list of all participating products. There will be an incentive for the homeroom that returns the most Box Tops. Thank you for your support.
