The Timber Trail Elementary (TTE) Timber Team continued to fulfill its mission of carrying out school activities by delivering the TTE Timberwolves a virtual spirit week. Team members met and planned the week’s event through Google Hangouts. There were several inspiring ideas, including superhero day. Students were invited to dress like their favorite superhero in honor of all the emergency workers who sacrifice each day to keep us safe. Additionally, students were encouraged to post a note of thanks in their windows.
Other favorite spirit week events included fun for the entire family. Students enjoyed remote learning activities in favorite pajamas with pictures taken of family pets and favorite stuffed animals. On jersey day, students and families wore favorite colors or jerseys of favorite sports teams while playing a family friendly game of dodge ball. The losing family member had to disinfect high traffic areas throughout their homes.
Family challenge day encouraged TTE students and families to set and complete a challenge or goal. For some it was enjoying a long nature walk for other families it was cleaning and organizing the garage.
