Welcome to the Timber Lane Elementary PTA

The Timber Lane Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) is an incredible group of volunteers dedicated to supporting the needs of Timber Lane teachers, staff, and students. Volunteering with the PTA is a great way to invest in your school community, develop deeper connections, and establish a trusted network of parent support. 


Your involvement can take many shapes; whether it’s supporting teachers in the classroom, helping fundraise, or sharing your time and expertise. Your support can help our school community thrive!


By joining the PTA, you help us meet our school's needs that are outside the scope of their budget

Membership for families is $15 a year. Teacher memberships are $10.

Timber Lane Elementary School is changing up how it handles the school supply fair. In years past, kids could attend the supply fair in the gym and pick supplies for the upcoming school year. There will not be a supply fair for School Year 2024-2025.


This year, Timber Lane is introducing a new option. Families can purchase supply packs from EPI School Supplies at using our school code: TIM066


Interested in donating a supply gift? Use "Gift" as the student's name on the order.


The supply packs will be shipped directly to Timber Lane Elementary School. Deadline to submit orders for SY2024 - 2025 is Tuesday, June 25th.

La escuela primaria Timber Lane está cambiando la forma en que maneja la feria de útiles escolares. En años anteriores, los niños podían asistir a la feria de útiles en el gimnasio y elegir los útiles para el próximo año escolar. No habrá una feria de útiles para el año escolar 2024-2025.

Este año, Timber Lane está presentando una nueva opción. Las familias pueden comprar paquetes de útiles escolares de EPI School Supplies en https://www.educationalproducts.com/ShopPacks/ usando nuestro código escolar: TIM066

La mayoría de los kits de útiles cuestan entre $40.00 y $42.00.

¿Está interesado en donar un regalo de útiles? Use "Regalo" como el nombre del estudiante en el pedido.

Los paquetes de útiles se enviarán directamente a la escuela primaria Timber Lane y se distribuirán en el salón de clases de su hijo.

La fecha límite para enviar pedidos para el año escolar 2024-2025 es el martes 25 de junio.

Comuníquese con Dana Noland a djnoland@fcps.edu si tiene preguntas.

Whew! Spring auction has officially come to a close - and we're blown away by outpouring of local community support from donors and bidders alike. With your help we raised over $19,000 in support of teachers and students at Timber Lane. Thanks to the local community donors, teacher and staff donors, and local families who placed bids. We couldn't have done this without you!  



  • If I join the PTA, do I have to volunteer my time?


    Volunteering is not required! You can join and pay dues simply to support our activities. Volunteering isn't required to be a part of the PTA. And if you want to volunteer, but aren't a dues-paying PTA member, that's okay too! 

  • If I join the PTA, do I have to go to PTA meetings?


    Meetings are 100% optional! We love when parents join us at PTA meetings. It's a great way to learn about what's happening at school, hear from teachers and other guest speakers, learn about volunteer opportunities, and to ask any questions. However, you are not required to go to meetings, even if you join the PTA. 

  • Can I sponsor a friend or teacher's PTA membership?


    Yes! Sponsoring a friend or teacher's membership is easy. Simply email their name and email to membership@timberlanepta.com. We will contact them to let them know they have been sponsored and confirm they would like to be a member. Once they have confirmed membership we will contact you with payment information so others can join at no cost.

here's what the pta has been up to

On Saturday April 13, volunteers gathered to help mulch, pull weeds, and plant flowers at our annual Garden Green-Up event. We appreciate everyone who showed up to help beautify the school grounds - it was a great team effort!


On Thursday March 8, we hosted a fun Family Bingo Night in the cafeteria! You can check out the full album of pictures from the event by clicking here. Thanks for coming out to enjoy the evening with us!



Thanks to the continued support from parents and families, the PTA has been able to surprise teachers and staff with special appreciation days. In November we helped stock the teachers lounge with goodies, and in January we set up a hot cocoa bar, complete with marshmallows, whipped cream and sweet treats to welcome teachers to work on a snowy day. 


On Tuesday November 7th, we hosted our second annual Election Day Bake Sale. We received hundreds of donated baked goods from families and monetary donations that helped us buy and bake even more. Volunteers helped make signs, donated their time to collect donations, poured cups of coffee, and spent countless hours wrapping up goodies and dropping them off for distribution. The results were outstanding; we raised $1,697 in one day! 



It was a packed room this year for our annual Family Movie Night! Families enjoyed popcorn, candy, and pizza while watching Shrek. Students and parents dressed up in costume and raffle prizes included a variety of yummy treats and fun toys, games and books. The PTA also raised over $100 to contribute toward future family fun events. We are so glad you joined us! 



On Saturday, September 30, we hosted a fall garden cleanup event at the school. Volunteers worked hard weeding, planting, mulching and more. The TLES grounds are looking in tip top shape thanks to their hard work!




Right before this year's Back to School Night, we hosted our first PTA meeting of the year. We're so grateful to the many families who came out and packed the room. We had over 40 PTA members in attendance. Most exciting news of the night? We are working hard to bring after school enrichment back to TLES! You can view the complete meeting slides here



On Monday August, 14th the PTA hosted a welcome back breakfast for teachers and staff at Timber Lane. We loved seeing the room full of hugs and high fives as teachers gathered back together for the first time this school year. Thank you to the parents and families who donated in support of this event, and our community sponsors Harris Teeter and Safeway. It's going to be a great year!


2nd annual community ice cream social 

Thanks to all the families, teachers, and staff who came out to celebrate the new school year with us at the 2nd Annual PTA-hosted Community Ice Cream Social. It was a great way to start the year and we appreciated all of the teachers, staff, and families that came out to celebrate with us.
