Congratulations Rockslide Participants
Congratulations to all TTE Rockslide participants! The Timber Trail Educational Alliance (TTEA) will use the funds raised for the school’s science and reading programs as well as technology improvements. The TTEA is hoping to raise $44,000 during this school year to be used for these great programs. Prior to the Rockslide the TTEA had raised 28 percent of that goal.

Timber Team Partners with Douglas/Elbert
Timber Team is the TTE version of a student council. Made up of twenty four students from the fourth and fifth grade classes, these kids are in charge setting a high standard for the school and community, including leading fundraising efforts. Right now, Timber Team is in the process of pitting class against class to collect change for the Douglas/Elbert Task Force.
The students are hoping to raise more than $1000 for the task force. “It feels good when you help people,” said Anna.
Timber Team is lead by a group of four staff members: Jill Alexander – third grade teacher, Heather Brandt – librarian, Christine Cooke – speech & language pathologist and Karen Kolibaba – fourth grade teacher. Good luck, Timber Team.
