Parents, report cards and Tuesday folders are coming home today. Please only return the signed envelope and keep the report card. In the Tuesday folder, only the slip on the top of the papers needs to come back showing that you have seen your child’s graded papers.

There is a Scholastic book order form coming as well. If you wish to order books for a gift, please let me know and I won’t send them home with your child when they arrive.

I wish each of your families and safe and peaceful Thanksgiving break. I am thankful for being able to spend my days with your children and for your support in their education.

***Jamestown chaperones, thank you so much for your help yesterday. Please email me any pictures that you may have so I can add them to the blog.

Good morning families!


On Tuesday, November 20th we will be hosting our Turkey Trot. The Turkey Trot is a time for students to get outside, get some fresh air and exercise a bit! I will be setting up a course around the school that is a little less than a mile long for the students to walk/jog/run on for a half hour. The course will be marked with flags, cones and signs. During that time we invite parents to come walk/jog/run as well. This will be a great community builder for us at Colonial Trail and we look forward to it every year! (it has been called the Jingle Bell Run) Below you’ll find the schedule. If you would like to volunteer to come walk/jog/run the course with the students that would be incredibly helpful! We just ask that you be an extra pair of eyes and make sure students are being safe and staying on the course. You are encouraged to get your exercise in as well!


The K-2 students will be outside running from 10:00-10:30AM

The 3-5 students will be outside running from 10:45-11:15AM


If you are volunteering please use the link below to sign up. You will just come to the school a few minutes before your student’s run time. Sign in and wait in the front hallway. (please do not go up to the classroom) Then you can make your way out to the course. Kindergarten and 3rd grade students will start their run in the back of the school by the playground equipment. 1st and 4th grade students will start their run by the bus loop. 2nd and 5th grade students will start their run in the front of the school.


If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me. If you are volunteering I very much look forward to seeing you next Tuesday! Please encourage your student to dress appropriately for the weather and wear their PE (running) shoes next Tuesday, November 20th.

Younger siblings are not allowed to take part in the Turkey Trot due to Liability – only students enrolled at Colonial Trail can partake.  Thanks for your understanding.


If you sign up to volunteer, we must have a volunteer application on file.  Please submit it at least 2 days advance.  Need one to complete??  Go to: to download the application.



Thank You!
