• Timbers Elementary School


    Construction

    Planning for Timbers Elementary began as early as May 1979, when the architectural firm of Golemaon & Rolfe presented the school board with projected costs for two new elementary schools: one in Kingwood and the other in Atascocita.

    Baxter Construction was awarded the construction contract. Approval of the earthwork for the sites was granted in July 1979.  The original projected cost of the Atascocita elementary was $2,622,891.

    In November 1979, the School Board voted to name the new Atascocita elementary as The Timbers Elementary School (the word "The" was eventualy dropped from the name).

    The contract to purchase furniture for Timbers Elementary was approved in June 1980 for $155,688.78.

    Construction on Timbers ELementary was met wth frequent problems, due to weather issues and delays in utility hook-ups and street construction by the neighborhood developers.

    Patricia Joyce was appointed as the first Principal of Timbers Elementary in April 1981.  Charlotte Coffelt was appointed as the Assistant Principal in June 1981.

    The size of the school is 76,322 square feet.  The total site acreage is 9.94 acres.
