Principal's Message

Welcome to Timberline Elementary!

Our school is home to amazing students, staff, and a supportive parent community. At Timberline we focus on developing the whole child, and are dedicated to making every child feel welcome, supported, challenged, and loved.

Our excellent staff comes from all over the United States to teach at our school. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of all students. We believe it is our role to build strong relationships with students while we focus on their academic success. We see kids for who they are and value the uniqueness of all students based on gender, race, ethnicity, faith, and culture.

Our master schedule has been created to ensure academic rigor for all students. The goal is to provide grade level curriculum, followed by differentiated instruction based on the student’s academic levels. For students who need more support, and/or have specific learning disabilities, we use research-based interventions and strategies both in and out of the classroom. For students who may be advanced in their learning, we have a structure within the school system to meet their needs as well. Our shared goal for all students is that they make a minimum of a full year’s academic growth, each year.

Outside the grade level classrooms, our school offers four different electives. All students have the opportunity to experience Music, Art, Technology, and Physical Education. A highlight that sets us apart from most schools in Music is basic guitar instruction for students in grades four and five. In Art, our students have many opportunities to work through different projects, using different mediums. They also have an opportunity to use the kiln to create pottery. Our Technology class offers students an opportunity to work with Lego robotics, Makey-Makey kits, Ozobots, and Spheros. In PE, students have a unique opportunity to access our rock climbing wall.

Throughout their time at our school, our children can participate in numerous after school activities, including but not limited to: Mileage Club, Choir, Homework Club, Chess Club, Robotics, Student Council, PE Intramurals, Art Club, Battle of the Books, and Math Club,

Timberline Elementary is supported by a wonderful, hard working community of parents and grandparents who takes great pride in our school. We have committed to limiting our fundraising to one major event per school year. Our parent-teacher organization is dedicated to providing family activities for the community, including, but not limited to—Bingo, Monster Ball, Spring Carnival, Craft Fair, and days that honor grandparents, moms, dads, and veterans.

If you have any questions or would like more information about school, please call us or stop by for a tour.
