Trailblazer PTO

  • PTO Survey

Thank you for your support of Trailblazer Elementary's PTO this 2016/2017 school year! We accomplished so much this year! We held half a dozen TBE community events like the Back to school BBQ and the Daddy Daughter Dance, we collected 161 pairs of socks for our local community, and our TBE family's fantastic fundraising efforts purchased new furniture for all around our school. We could not have made any of it possible without the support of our Trailblazer families who volunteered, donated to, and attended our events. Thank you!!!

So we can continue to support our students in the best way possible, we are asking families to answer a quick 10 question survey.  The survey can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9GGZWR7

Moved or Moving?


If you have recently moved or are moving soon, please let the office know! If you will not be returning to TBE in the fall, there is paperwork that is required to withdrawal your student from school. Please fill out a withdrawal form and email it to the registrar Marnie Gonzalez at mlgonzalezz@dcsdk12.org
