Trailridge Elementary School Celebrates 20 Years in Education

Lee’s Summit, MO September 3, 2013: Trailridge Elementary School PTA has been busy over the summer! This year, our school celebrates 20 years in education and we went BIG to celebrate.

The focus at Trailridge has always been and will continue to be maximizing student achievement in a nurturing environment. To that end, beautification efforts inside our building have not been a focus and PTA wanted to change that.

With reading being a critical skill set, it is important that it be fun and engaging for children. To foster this, we added a special area in the library just for kids to relax and read a book. PTA purchased two full size chaise lounges, three fun ottomans and a colorful 8×10 area rug that compliments the freshly painted room. It’s the perfect reading space.

We believe the entire Trailridge staff is the backbone to student success. Without them, we, as parents, would be lost. They need a space to unwind, regroup and rejuvenate. The lounge area had not been touched in 20 years and an Extreme Makeover was needed. Just like the TV show, we did this by partnering with local businesses within our community.

And all those partners stepped up…in a HUGE way! Our PTA team worked throughout the 2012-2013 school year to secure donations for a staff lounge make-over. We were amazed with the response we received. In no particular order, the following businesses played a key role making things happen by way of DONATIONS and or SUPPORT:

Crowley Furniture

Home Depot
Certa Pro Painters
Shamrock Cabinets
Summit Custom Homes
Del’s Appliances Heating & Cooling
Habitat for Humanity
Mo-Kan Flooring
Lee’s Summit School District
Office Depot
Bledsoe Rental’s


And from our Trailridge families – labors of love – with a hand crafted buffet table and accessories, tear out of the old lounge, stained and lacquered cabinets, installation of mosaic backsplash, helped paint, and coordinated resources, just to name a few.

The Lee’s Summit School District and our custodial team offered amazing support. When we were met with a challenge, they stepped up by lending a hand.

In all, more than 50 individuals contributed to our projects. The difference between the before and after is astounding! We are thrilled with the results.

Office furniture to suit your personality

Looking for Office Furniture in Kansas City?


The days are gone when office furniture had to be utilitarian and boring. With the lifestyle of today office furniture needs to be pleasant looking and most important of all, it need to be comfortable.

With many hours spent in an office environment, you do not want your day to be a drudge, so creating an atmosphere to keep you happy and smiling is the way while you work.

The desk

Many people spend a considerable amount of time on the computer, so it is essential to have a desk with good workspace. Modern designs of desk furniture include pull out sections for keyboards and easy to reach cubby- holes for pens and other miscellaneous items. Alternatively, maybe your preference is a desk with drawers to keep your bits and pieces in.

Desks are no longer confined to spaces in commercial ventures. Many people now prefer to work from home as this offers a more peaceful working environment. Made out of wood, plastic or even steel, desks come in all shapes and sizes, dependant on the amount of room space you can allocate for them.

Often the traditional style of desk is made with material that is low-grade and fussily styled. The trend now is to go for a sleek and easy to clean desk that at the same time is pleasant looking.

The Chair

It is very important to use an office chair with a good backrest. The high back office chairs are the most beneficial for your posture, as they give good support for your back. Office chairs may be covered in leather, leatherette, fabric or plastic, or else can come in a shaped plastic chair. They are produced with, or without armrests. A good idea is to pay a visit to a branch of Crowley Furniture and have a look at what they have on offer. Sit in the chairs on display in the showroom and find one that you are really comfortable in, before you buy.

The bookcase

With a home office in so many houses, bookcases look so much more relaxing than the stuffy old filing cabinets of the past. With computer use now the most common, there is no need to have lots of files and paperwork lying around untidily cluttering up spaces. Usually it is possible for most equipment that you want to use, to lay on a bookcase shelf.

Design and décor

The design and the décor of your office should be representative of the work that you do. If you work with plans and other blueprints, you require lots of desk space. If you only work with a computer, then only a relatively small space is needed.

Pot plants and a colored rug on the floor give a bright and cheerful look to an office, whether in an office block or else an office at home. Remember to have a chair for guests to sit on or for an employee that you are giving lengthy instructions.
