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. Families will receive an email from their child’s teacher by the end of day on Friday, August 20th.
We look forward to a year of giving All glory to God as we serve the Lord together at Timothy!
Mr. Justin Horne, NBCT

Elementary School & Middle School Curriculum Night
Save the date for our K-4th grade Curriculum Night on August 31, at 7:00 pm and our 5th-8th grade Curriculum Night September 2, at 7:00 pm. Our 5th-8th Curriculum Night will also include an important iPad informational meeting as these students will be 1:1 with iPads this year. More information will be sent home the first week of school regarding these evenings.
Click here for school supply lists. If you pre-ordered a school supply kit, it will be in your student’s homeroom the first day of school or for pick up during Meet the Teachers. Please look for specific information from your child’s teacher regarding what to bring the first few days. It does not all need to be brought on the first day.

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.
Freaky Friday Musical
Did you know that 5th and 6th graders can participate in the middle school musical? The middle school musical is back and is kicking off Timothy Drama with the amusing and nutty Disney Musical, FREAKY FRIDAY! All 6th-8th graders are invited to audition August 30th & 31st, 3:15-5pm. (5th graders can sign-up to help backstage) Find more information here.
