2013-14 PTO Board Elections
**ATTENTION PARENTS...Timbers PTO wants Y-O-U!! It's that time of the year again to elect PTO Board members.
* I want Timbers Elementary to be one of the best schools in Texas.
* I want my child to have a great school year - to learn and to have fun!
* I want to help decide how PTO fundraising moneys are spent.
* I want all of the students at Timbers to be successful.
If the above statements are true, then "help us help the school". Parent involvement is critical for a successful school, so volunteer as a PTO officer or a board member for 2013-2014. There are jobs that take no more than a couple hours a month, some that are seasonal and a few that require a routine commitment.
Elections for the 2013-2014 PTO Board will be held on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at 9am.
For a description of each position, click on this link: http://www.humbleisd.net/Page/47679 or click on the Board Job Descriptions link on the lefthand side of this page.
Dedicated teachers, staff and PARENTS help make Timbers Elementary a great school! Join us - it's rewarding, it's important, it's even fun!
Thank you for your time and consideration!!

Our school has a unique opportunity to participate in Junior Achievement programs focused on financial literacy, work-readinessand entrepreneurship. The curriculum is interactive and fun. The secret ingredient is YOU, an involved parent willing to share some time and life experiences.
Parent volunteers visit their child's classroom and deliver five 30 minute activities, one activity per visit. The day and time of visits can be scheduled to fit both the volunteer and the teacher's needs. Volunteers will be trained and all materials, lesson plans, and activities are provided.
Please contact Melda Mobley at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping out. We appreciate you and all you do. We can't do this without volunteers like you!
WE MADE SHADE!!
We are very proud of this accomplishment and hope you will take pride in what you are doing for Timbers Elementary. Please take the time to share this exciting news with your family and friends that helped make this possible. The shade will give our children some much needed protection from those hot Texas days!
We can’t make these improvements for our children without you. Make it a point this year to get involved and volunteer your time at the school. Our school is a much better place for our children because of our parent involvement. The school community is truly a partnership between the staff, parents, students and surrounding community. Come and join us!
We would love to have you join the Timbers Elementary team!
