The Wayfinder Blog
We are a district of trailblazers. The Trailblazer is the first to break ground on their quest for discovery. Innovative and driven, the Trailblazer blazes new pathways to explore and learns from the world around them. The Wayfinder Blog is your trail map. It contains stories, features and resources about how we enable our students to blaze their own trails.
The new Wayfinder Magazine is sent to district families twice yearly and available online. Read the latest issue.
