Our mission and vision at Timber Trail is to provide our students with the
education, skills, and
resources they will need to be happy, curious, and engaged life-long learners.  The world changes at a rapid rate.  Our students today will have an average of 16 jobs over their lifetimes, most of which have yet to be invented or created.  No longer are teachers the dispensers of facts or knowledge.  Our charge is to teach students how to think critically, be creative, work collaboratively, and communicate effectively.  In short, how to think and solve problems.  Our approach to education can not be the way it was when you and I attended school.  In fact, it can’t even be the same as it was last year.  In addition, we look at educating the whole child, hence our motto “Timber Trail, Where Hearts and Minds Connect”.  We truly believe and live this mission every day.  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your child’s educational career.

We would like to thank all of you for supporting our professional learning at CCIRA. The Colorado Council International Reading Association (CCIRA) is a "Professional organization of educators and community members dedicated to the promotion and advancement of literacy." Imagine two days of collaborating, learning, and exploring new ideas with people who share your passion for teaching and learning. That is what CCIRA is all about. Your generosity, both through the fall fundraiser and Timber Trail's non-student days on February 4th and 5th, gave our teachers the opportunity to participate in this amazing literacy conference. The presentation to the right shows just a few of the presenters we were able to see and the ideas we explored. Jeannette Proctor left thinking, "I have so many ideas for new ways to reach all of my kids." This sentiment is felt by all at Timber Trail, we can't wait begin trying out all of our new ideas.

New Elementary Progress Report Aims to 
Support Personalized Learning 

At Douglas County School District (DCSD), we know that every one of our students is unique with different interests, strengths, and goals. They learn in their own ways and at their own pace. For that reason we are committed to not only personalizing learning to meet their specific needs, but also to providing information needed so that families can support and encourage continued growth. 

That is why DCSD is working to rebuild the Elementary Progress Report (EPR).

Go here to learn more about the new EPR which is expected to roll out in December, at the end of this semester.
