Our first Young Ladies of Timbers meeting is this Wednesday after school until 4:30 p.m. Our mission is to build leadership among young ladies on our campus and to promote awareness, understanding, love and acceptance of who they are and who they are striving to become. Not only will they concentrate on improving themselves, but also the community around us. We will focus our attention on academic excellence, self-esteem, respectfulness and goodwill.

Winter Wear

Parents are encouraged to write scholars names in jackets, coats, winter hats, and gloves so that they are easy to return when they are left in the cafeteria or at recess. There is a collection of coats and jackets hanging in the front foyer. If your child has lost one, please stop by to take a look!

Counselor's Corner

Backpack Buddies

Timbers participates in the Houston Food Banks's Backpack Buddy Program. The program allows students who qualify for free/reduced lunch to qualify for additional student meals/snacks be sent home for the weekend. 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 self-management skills for the second nine weeks. Students will continue to demonstrate self-awareness and personal responsibility through managing emotions an actions.

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.
