October News from the Foundation

The Timber Ridge Foundation would like to welcome to Ms. Timeka Cline, our new Assistant Principal!! There are many new faces at Timber Ridge this year and we are excited to have Ms. Cline join our wonderful school.

The Foundation Drive is underway! Thanks to the generosity of so many parents, our fundraising started with a bang, but we still haven’t reached our goal of $55,000!! The drive ends October 18th, so please donate today if you have not already. The TRF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, therefore, your contribution is tax-deductible.  And if your employer provides matching contributions please let us know.  The suggested contribution is $110 per child at Timber Ridge. If you are able to give more, please consider making the TRF one of your priorities for charitable giving. We will gladly receive donations in any amount! Please look for more information in your child’s Thursday folders and in upcoming e-flashes. You may click here to download a donation form now. If you have already donated, thank you for investing in our school!!

October at Timber Ridge means it’s time for MONSTER MASH!! This year the Foundation is looking forward to seeing all our ghosts, goblins and little pumpkins at the annual Timber Ridge Foundation Monster Mash on Thursday, October 24th from 6:00 to 7:00 pm. Please remember this is not a drop off event. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Also, masks and weapons are not allowed.

The next Foundation Spirit Night will be Monday, October 14th at Zaxby’s on the corner of Johnson Ferry Road and Lower Roswell Road from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Please come out to support the Timber Ridge Foundation and thank Zaxby’s for being one of the Foundation’s Platinum Level Sponsors10% of all receipts between 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm will be donated back to the TRF. Due to limited parking, please consider the drive-thru.

Thank you to the many families that joined the Foundation at our first spirit night at Maddio’s! We had a huge crowd and Maddio’s donated $300 to the Timber Ridge Foundation! Special thanks to Mr. Hill who made pizzas and salads all night! His enthusiasm was infectious!! Thank you also to the many teachers who attended, especially those who helped serve the pizzas: Melinda Butler, Eileen Mitchell, Alison Dunford, Catherine Murray, Linda DiMare, Caitlin Nash, Staci Carper and Timeka Cline, who helped out on her very first day at Timber Ridge!!

Thank you for supporting the Timber Ridge Foundation! Together we can do more for our children, our teachers and our school.
