2018 COGAT Screener Testing for 2nd Graders
This spring, ALL 2nd-grade students will participate in a Cognitive Abilities Screener Test.
Cognitive ability tests measure a student's overall ability across a broad range of mental capabilities. A Cognitive ability test is not an achievement test. Another basis for using a cognitive ability test is to assess students’ reasoning and problem-solving abilities to help guide appropriate placement into the district Program for Academic Achievement and Enrichment (PACE). For more information on the PACE program please visit the PCSD web page link.
Your school’s testing dates are March 26th to March 30th . If you would prefer your child not be tested, please inform your child’s teacher prior to the test date. If you have additional questions, please contact Gina Mason at firstname.lastname@example.org or 645-5600 ext 3083.
Kindergarten Orientation/ La Orientacion de Kinder
If you have a child entering kindergarten for the 2018-19 school year, you are invited to attend Trailside Elementary School's Kindergarten Orientation on Friday, April 20th at 8:30 AM in the library.
New kindergarten registration forms will be available on the Park City School District website on April 1, 2018
Iditarod Comes to Trailside
As part of our 3rd Grade project following the 2018 Iditarod Race, TSES students got a special visit from Park City’s own Luna Lobos Dog Sledding. Students and teachers enjoyed getting more detailed information about dog sledding.
What a great opportunity for students to get "up close and personal" with the owners and the dogs.

During the 2014-2015 school year, our faculty worked collaboratively to define the following mission and vision statement:
Our mission is to provide a high-quality, comprehensive, and meaningful education for all students. Each student will be treated as an individual, given the tools to be a lifelong learner, and taught to function as a member of a group and as a productive member of society.
Trailside Elementary School’s vision is to promote collaboration between school and community so that students are empowered to achieve academic excellence and succeed in a globally changing world.
Our faculty will use our professional learning communities to examine our data to help inform our goals for Language Arts, STEM, and positive student supports. We will also work collaboratively with our school Community Council to align our goals.
Our goal is to move vehicles through the procedure quickly, but not at the expense of safety. It will take several minutes to get in and out of our parking lot, and it all moves more quickly when everyone follows the procedures.
Please remember that at any time, and especially before and after school, there may be children in the parking lot. Drive slowly and without distractions.
Please use the drop off lane. Children may enter and exit vehicles at the curb where there is a double red lane. Please have them use the passenger side of the car only. There will be no drop-off or pick-up from the driving lane. If you choose to park in the parking lot and walk your children, cross only at the crosswalks. Please model proper behavior for our children.
Due to the presence of buses entering and exiting, we cannot allow students to be dropped-off or picked-up in the bus/faculty parking area.
Thank you for your patience and courtesy in what can easily become a frustrating task.
