Trojan For Life!
Planning a reunion? We're here to help!
On behalf of Timothy Christian Schools, thank you for your interest in planning a reunion! Your efforts are valuable in keeping alumni connected and promoting the mission of Timothy Christian Schools.
We are available to provide resources for your reunion. Timothy can provide the following (upon request):
- Class list with most recent contact information (email, address, phone)
- Name Tags
- Suggested venues along with reviews and contact information
- A Timothy representative to give your class a 5 minute update on how Timothy has changed since you graduated.
- Take a group photo and collect updated contact information for our records.
For help with any of the above, please email Michael VanDerAa, Director of Marketing firstname.lastname@example.org
To make your reunion a success, we suggest the following:
- Reach out to your class in ways which best communicate: email, phone, Facebook, etc. We know that each class is unique, and we don’t expect you to try every means of communication. However, we do hope that you will find a means of communication that you are comfortable using and that you will utilize that to create a dialogue with your reunion year. Creating a Facebook group is a popular method. If you choose to make a Facebook group or page, please add Amy Bode, Director of Communications email@example.com as a page admin. She can help spread the word and post historical photos of your class.
- We would like to get updated contact information from all participants. You can help us facilitate a class reunion photo! We can promote your reunion when it's over and share the photo on Timothy's alumni Instagram. Please follow along
We hope that this will be an enjoyable experience as you reconnect with your friends. Your assistance and support is invaluable. Thank you so much for your willingness to help!
