Timber Ridge PTO is proud of the many benefits and enhancements we have provided for our school, students and teachers; and we are grateful to PTO members and volunteers who have helped make it all happen.

In 2016, the PTO was happy to sponsor the re-creation of the younger grades playground. Playground equipment is not purchased through state funding, and the PTO is responsible for the initial cost of purchase and installation. Through years of hard work and fundraising, our school of 700+ children now have 2 playgrounds to play on. This playground includes a climbing wall, merry-go-round and slides, all in age appropriate size.

  • Six ELMO Interactive Document cameras for each community
