AttentionTrailblazer Parents:

The Trailblazer Team will be hosting its annual Veterans Day celebration Friday, November 9th. This yearly celebration involves students performing patriotic music and poetry, as well as serving breakfast to local veterans.

A form was sent home with students requesting help to make this event a success. We appreciate any donations of breakfast foods and drinks, paper plates, napkins, paper cups that you can provide. Additionally, volunteers to help set up and serve food are greatly appreciated.

If you are able to donate or volunteer, please send the form back with your child or email me.

Thank you for your support!
