Pennies for Patients

We're so thankful for all of our families who donated to our Pennies for Patients campaign as we raise awareness and support the work to beat childhood cancer! We are awaiting the final total collected from the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society, but we know that we raised over $300 in paper money (they are counting all of the coins for us). The winners of our grade level competition is Pre-K for bringing in the most paper money and 5th grade for collecting the most coins! These grade levels will have popcorn parties this week!

Spring Creek Spirit Night

Astronomy Day in Houston

Saturday, October 5, 2019 is Astronomy Day in Houston. This year, because of problems at the normal location, Astronomy Day will be hosted at Humble ISD's own Insperity Observatory. The observatory will be open from 3:00 to 10:00 PM. There will be indoor presentations, outdoor presentations, a laser tour of the night sky, solar observing, night sky observing after sunset with the telescopes inside the observatory and also through telescopes set up in the parking lot, spectroscopy demonstrations, activities for children, and tours of our astronomy in art installations. We hope you can join us for this unique opportunity. The observatory is located at Jack Fields Elementary School, 2505 S. Houston Avenue, Humble. Parking will be in front of the school, and across the street in the parking lot of The Luke Church. The observatory’s website is https://www.humbleisd.net/observatory.

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 and your message will be included in our staff newsletter for all to see!

My Teacher, My Hero

Congratulations to Ms. Hildebrand, Ms. Leone, and Ms. Rea for being last week's "My Teacher, My Hero" award recipients!

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!

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.

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.
