From the Desk of Mr. Justin Horne, P-8 Principal:

“All glory to God” is our theme for this year! Everything we have to be thankful for is due to God’s continued grace. We will start reminding students of that from the very first day of school on August 25th! I thank God for bringing me to Timothy and look forward to my second year here and my 18th year in education. Remember that our first day is a half day with a noon dismissal. 

We welcome several new staff members to the Timothy family this year. You can read short profiles about them here. 

Middle School schedules will be available to view in PowerSchool August 17. If you have accessed PowerSchool in the past, your account will be the same as it was in previous years. If you need to set up a new PowerSchool account, information was sent in a separate email.  Paper copies of your middle school schedule will be available during home base on the first day of school. 

We look forward to a year of giving All glory to God as we serve the Lord together at Timothy!

Wellness, Health, and Nutrition Guidelines

We are committed to providing a learning environment that supports and promotes wellness, the following steps have been approved by our board and implemented at Timothy:

  • Parents, students, and volunteers are not allowed to distribute food to any students during regular school hours. 

  • The use of any trans-fat in food sold or distributed to P-12 students during regular school hours has been completely eliminated.

  • The use of Styrofoam to serve or deliver food to P-12 students during regular school hours has been eliminated.

  • We have eliminated student or parent distribution of food to celebrate student birthdays. Elementary school teachers will distribute a school supplied “favor” on birthdays that is appropriate to the grade level.

  • Any distribution of any food to students at school must be approved by the administration, meet approved requirements, and be communicated in a timely fashion to parents.
