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.
On behalf of the students and staff of Timber Trail, I want to thank all of you for your tremendous support during our Move-a-thon fundraiser. Because of your generosity, $70,261 was raised; a record for Timber Trail!
I want to send a special thank you to Kimberly McCarthy and Elaine Petrosky for their time, efforts, and skills in organizing an amazing day for students, staff and volunteers.
Thank you again for making Timber Trail the school "Where Hearts and Minds Connect".
