Join us September 5th from 5pm to 7pm for our Back to School Picnic!

Our annual Fall Book Fair will be going on in the gym at the same time, so don’t forget to stop by and pick up some books.
Students and families can keep track of the school year here:
This year, Three Trails PTA is adding a reward program for families’ efforts at the school. Every time a parent or grandparent or other special family member attends an activity at the Three Trails building, a rubber stamp on their family passport will be available. After collecting ten of these stamps through the school year, a family can drop it into a special drawing for some amazing prizes.
A big screen TV will be the grand prize, family season passes to the KC Zoo will be some smaller prizes, and there will be many more added.
Having a connection with the kids’ school is not just fun and helpful for them, it can be rewarding for everyone at the end of the school year! Pick your passport up at the next school event, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
