The grade level that collects the most pennies will win a Popcorn Party! If you would rather donate online, please click here.

Humble ISD GT Referral Assessment Window

The Humble Gifted and Talented referral window is now open! Students may be referred for GT testing by parent(s), peers, teacher(s), other professional personnel, and/or themselves. Starting this year, there will be an online district testing portal. This portal will only be open during the assessment window(s) and will include parental permission to test, evaluate, and receive gifted program services. Parents of students who have been referred by teachers or other staff will be contacted to complete the online referral form. No student may be denied access to the Humble ISD Gifted and Talented Program on the basis of race, creed, or handicapping conditions. Referrals should be completed in the online portal on the Advanced Academics website. The portal will be available and open during the referral window (Grades 1-12: August 26 - September 27; Kindergarten: August 26 - December 20). You may access the District Referral Portal by clicking this link: Online Referral Form

The Wolfettes' first practice is Friday, September 13th, from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. All members of the team will report to the cafeteria during dismissal instead of going to their regular dismissal locations.

If you have any questions, please email head Wolfette coach, Ms. Otero, at timbersptokourtney@gmail.com.

News from PreK

Pre-K is learning about our school and our bodies. We’ve learned about the people who work in the school, places we go, and the rules of the school. In Math we are learning about the attributes that make things different---size, color, and shape. In Literacy, we are focusing on the letters in each child’s name. Our character education focus will be developing the concepts of responsibility and respect. We will learn about our physical bodies and explore the wonders of our thoughts and feelings. Check out all of our learning on Twitter and don't forget to follow us. @HumbleISD_TE and @prek2_te

News from Kindergarten

We have had great fun learning everyone’s name in our class. In our whole group reading, we will be identifying letters we know and making connections with students who also have those letters or spelling patterns in their names. We have learned how to frame sight words. During our journal time we are making connections to the characters we read about during our read aloud. During our math time, we have counted objects up to ten and recorded the number. The kids love playing sight word, letter and number swat games, and enjoy learning through play during our Play-Based Learning time.

News from Nurse Shannon

We will be doing hearing, vision, and growth screenings this week in the clinic for Pre K, Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades. Any students who do not pass the screenings will be re-screened at a later date. If your student does not pass the second screening you will be notified via a referral letter to take your student to the vision specialist and/or their primary care physician. These referrals are to be filled out by the doctor and returned to clinic, and will be added to your child's health record. If you have any question please call or email Nurse Shannon at (281)641-2005 or sdezell@humbleisd.net.

Big Kahuna Fundraiser Coming Soon!

Our Fall Fundraiser kicks off September 27th. Enjoy free shipping to your home for online orders (with the exception of frozen products). More info is coming soon!

Counselor's Corner


We are inviting all dads, stepdads, grandads, and other male father figures to be a part of our Watch D.O.G.S. volunteer group!

Step 1: Before participating in the program, all volunteer father figures will first need to complete an official Humble ISD volunteer application and background check online.

Directions to Volunteer Application: Please visit www.humbleisd.net, select “Departments” from the main page’s toolbar. Next, select “Community Development." Then, select “Volunteer in Humble ISD” located on the left side of the screen. Finally, select “Click here to start your application today” to begin the volunteer application.

Step 2: You will receive an email once your volunteer application has been approved by the district. You will need to contact Ms. McCoy at 281-641-2000 to verify the status of your application and to select an ideal day/time you would like to volunteer. (Note: There will be school days that we will not be able to have WATCH D.O.G.S. volunteers.)

Step 3: On the day of your volunteer work, you will check in with the front office. Then, you will have a mini orientation and will be given your daily schedule. It is imperative that all WATCH D.O.G.S follow their schedules.

Thank you for your interest! Timbers greatly appreciates you!

Celebrating our Staff

Does your child love being a Timbers Timberwolf? Is it because of a certain teacher or staff member? Well, I want to know about it! Please click here to tell me about the person who makes Timbers the best school for your student!

Car Riders

Grades K-2 and their older siblings are back car riders. Grades 3-5 students without younger siblings are front car riders.

Lunch Visitors

Parents may begin eating lunch with your student this week! Please check in at the front office to receive your visitors pass and then wait at the guest table for your student to arrive. Please note that while outside food may be brought for your child, it cannot be shared with others.

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.

Box Tops for Education

Box Tops has gone digital! Please watch this video to find out how you can use the new Box Tops app to earn cash for Timbers with Box Tops for Education! Now through September 30th when you scan your receipt on the Box Tops app you earn Timbers a chance to DOUBLE our fall earnings!

School Spirit!

Have you purchased your 2019-2020 school spirit shirt yet? School spirit shirts are worn on Friday and can be purchased from the front office for $10. Spirit shirts from 2017-2018 or before can be purchased for $5.
