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.

School Hours
8:30am - 3:30pm
A.M. Kindergarten  8:30am - 11:30am
If school is delayed, our start time is 10:00am. Morning kindergarten is canceled if there is a
delayed start.



Timber Trail Elementary will follow the DCSD 2016-17 Conventional calendar.  The exception to this is Monday, October 17, 2016 (Monday after fall break) and Monday, March 27 (Monday after spring break)  when TTE students will not attend school due to teacher professional development.  These two dates only pertain to Timber Trail.  Other schools in the Rock Canyon feeder will have school on those two days.  Timber Trail has five more minutes in our day to provide for two additional staff development days in the year.  Our B.A.S.E. program will be open those days to provide a childcare option. Again, this change is only for Timber Trail Elementary, not the entire district.
