How Do I Order Uniforms?
Flynn O'Hara is our uniform provider. For details on how to order, check the page on our website.

The Trailblazer Spirit Shop also has a selection of gently used uniform pieces for sale as well as PE uniforms. Since proceeds from the Spirit Shop fund Parent Club activities and events for students, we encourage parents to shop there when possible.

The Trailblazer Spirit Shop is your only source for dry-fit uniform shirts, outerwear, spirit shirts and gently used resale uniform items. Gym uniforms for middle school students are also sold here. You can shop online at or contact the school to set up an appointment to shop in person.

How Do I Order Lunch?

Beginning on August 26, lunch will be available every day for students to purchase. (Students may also bring their own lunches from home.) You do not need to preorder lunch online. Instead, each school day, your child's teacher will ask students if they are purchasing lunch for the next day, then they will turn in that count for orders to the caterer. Your FACTS account will be billed for lunch purchases when they are delivered.

Monthly menus are included in the newsletter and in the FACTS Parent Portal so that you and your student can look it over together! 

Lunch Prices:
  • Student Lunch: $7.10 (includes milk or water)
  • Milk: $1.55 each (if individually ordered; also available to students who bring lunch)
  • Ice cream: $1.85 each (available on Fridays to students who both order and bring lunch.)
How Do I Order a T-shirt Pass?

In order to wear Spirit Shirts on Fridays, students need to purchase a T-shirt Pass. The purchase of a pass includes the special Spirit t-shirt of the year (a 40th Anniversary Spirit Shirt) and an FWA 40th Anniversary car decal! Fill out this form by August 31 to get your pass!
