DSC_0108Following a two-year break because of the pandemic, the 10th annual Trailblazer Day returned as an in-person event on March 10.

Named after the school mascot, the western-themed day is a fundraising event full of fun activities for parents and students, including art projects, lessons from a cowboy on roping bulls, a petting zoo, and concluding the day with a big chili cook-off.

“We haven’t been able to do this since January 2020,” said Tracie Mann, Headmaster of the Jane Justin School. “Having everybody together and having that sense of community, the camaraderie and seeing everyone in one place is my most favorite part.”

Heather Renegar, Lead Teacher at Jane Justin School and chili cook-off judge, said, “I think it’s a great opportunity to celebrate the community that is this school and the community at large, and helping all these kids become the trailblazers that we want to see them be in their future.”DSC_0129
