Our regular office hours are 7:45am to 4:15pm. School starts at 8:30am and is dismissed at 2:50pm. Student supervision is from 7:45am to 3:15pm. If students arrive on campus between 7:45am and 8:00am, they must report directly to the cafeteria where staff will be able to provide supervision. At 8:00am, all students are able to go to their morning play areas.
Should you have any questions, please contact me or our Assistant Principal, Dr. Cassandra Poole. Thank you for your continued support and partnership.

The Trailblazer Fitness Adventure is here! The TFA is an obstacle course-based fundraiser - it involves all students in a fun, team building fitness event while helping our school raise funds for technology. We developed and are running this fundraiser ourselves rather than contracting with a third-party company, so 100% of the profits come right back to DeSoto Trail!
The TFA is structured to attract support for our school from beyond our local community. Our school-wide fundraising goal is $40,000. If every family identifies three sponsors for their student who can pledge $1 per obstacle ($30), we will easily meet our goal. Please visit trailblazerfitnessadventure.com and share your class' donation page with family and friends who can help us raise money for technology!
Thank you for your support, and please consider coming to the Trailblazer Fitness Adventure on February 12 to volunteer or cheer on your Trailblazers. Volunteers can sign up at bit.ly/tfa2017.
The Trailbazer Patrons program is our single large PTO fundraiser. The PTO supports all sorts of resources and activities at DeSoto Trail, including library books, PE supplies, classroom materials, musical productions, reading programs, Grandparents Day, Field Day, Veteran's Day, All Pro Dad, the Science Olympiad, and the 5k Run for Literacy. By avoiding any middlemen in the fundraising process, the Patrons program brings 100% of donations back to the PTO to be used at DeSoto Trail.
