October is here and fall is in the air!  It is a busy time for all of our families at Timber Ridge as we juggle multiple schedules, homework assignments, work, sporting events and family time.

The Foundation Board would like to take a moment to thank every family who was able to contribute to this year’s Patron Drive.  We are always so in awe of our families here at Timber Ridge.  Pooling together our resources and raising $51,000 for our school is truly an act of which we should all be proud.  The Foundation, in addition to the teachers and staff, are so grateful for your support of this wonderful National Blue Ribbon School.  I hope you will take a moment to reflect on what your donations have been able to contribute to our school, and what they mean to our teachers and children, every day of the year.

If you did not have an opportunity to donate during the Patron Drive, it is never too late to show your support of our school.  We will gladly accept donations of any size throughout the school year as we continue to strive to reach our $55,000 goal.

As we have wrapped up our Patron Drive, we look forward to “wrapping” up some teachers at this month’s Monster Mash.  We hope you can join us for this fun filled evening on Thursday, October 25th (6-7pm).  You can download your invitation here.

We also have special thanks to our Community Sponsors who stepped up this year to make a difference at Timber Ridge. Visit our Community Sponsor link to find out just who they are!  If your family made a donation to the Foundation this year, you should have received 2 bright green Business Partner Loyalty Cards along with our thanks.  Click on Loyalty Partners under the Community Sponsors link to see what deals are available.  If you have occasion to patronize these businesses, please thank them for their generosity.   Deals will be updated throughout the school year, so please check back periodically!

And finally, information is available for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders regarding the upcoming musical Honk Jr. which will be performed at Dodgen Middle School April 20-21, 2013!  Click here for an application.

There’s lots going on at Timber Ridge, so please visit the rest of the website and remember:

Together we can do even more for our school, our teachers and our children.  Thank you for your support!
