Parent Newsletter--December 1, 2017

Trail Ridge Families,

The Holiday Season is upon us and that means we are winding down the end of the second quarter here at TRMS. Students and teachers have been working hard to finish the quarter strong before final grades are posted. Remind your kids to take advantage of all opportunities we offer to provide extra academic support, including lunchtime study halls, after school homework club, and talking with their teachers.

As we finish up the semester, we have a lot of various activities over the next couple of weeks. Please take some time to review this newsletter to become familiar with all of the upcoming events. We always appreciate your continued support!


Have a great day!

Eddie Cloke, Principal
