If you would like to enroll in the Backpack program, please notify Ms. Collins at 281-641-2007 or Marylana.Collins@humbleisd.net.

Guidance/Great 8 Skills

Timbers follows Humble ISD's adoption of the Great 8 character education skills. Timbers students are focusing on goal-directed behavior for the third nine weeks.

Save the Kids Community Night

As a follow-up to the Screenagers screening and discussion co-hosted with the Humble ISD Education Foundation, our community is invited to hear from Collin Kartchner, the nationally recognized social media activist, Ted Talk presenter and founder of Save the Kids. He will be speaking to our community on Thursday, January 30th at 5707 Kingwood Drive at 7:00 pm on the influence of social media and screens on our mental health and how to rise above the pressure.

Parents and educators of all ages are invited to hear this dynamic presentation, appropriate for parents, tweens and teens. This event is FREE.

Attendance Reminders

When your child(ren) are absent from school, you must call the absence hotline at (281)641-2019 for each day absent, and send a note to school the day they return. If the school does not receive a phone call or note from a guardian, the absence is considered unexcused.

Student Birthdays

Parents may purchase a frozen birthday treat for their child’s class during their lunch time. Frozen treats may be purchased from the cafeteria for 75 cents each to be distributed after the children finish their lunch. Please notify the cafeteria at (281) 641-2008 one week prior to the event in order to have enough treats on hand for all interested. If parents wish to bring cupcakes to school, they may do so. However, please ensure that the treats are store bought as well as notify the teacher two days in advance so that the teacher has ample time to contact the parents of those with allergies arranging for an alternate treat. Parents may drop off the treats at the front office so that birthdays may be celebrated the final 20 minutes of the school day. As a reminder of district policy, students are not permitted to pass out party invitations at school unless every student in the class receives one.
