Tradition - Performance - Opportunity

Welcome to Timberwood Park Elementary

Welcome Tiger Families to the 2018-2019 School Year. This school year is sure to be a special one! TPES opened its doors in August 2008. For 10 years, thanks to the efforts of students, parents, staff, and community members, Timberwood has been a shining example of achievement, excellence, and leadership.
 
Timberwood Park Elementary prides itself in student achievement and helping each and every student to reach his or her maximum potential.  As a Leader in Me school, we work diligently to instill the 7 Habits of Happy Kids in our students on a daily basis.  We continue to proudly wear the label of being named the first Lighthouse School in Comal ISD.  
 
Our tradition of being a community school will continue.  We welcome parent involvement and we appreciate open and honest feedback. Parents are an integral part of our educational team. We recognize that when parents and the school form a meaningful and positive partnership, students flourish and thrive. Together we will make TPES the best school it can be.
 
We are very excited to embark on our second decade of growing the leaders of tomorrow. We are also very proud of all that has been achieved in our first 10 years.
 
Please check this website often for the latest school news and a list of upcoming events.
 
Thank you for all of your support!

Sincerely,
Kim Lyssy O’Bryant

Homebound Teachers, Unsung Heroes

While their anthem song may be “On the Road Again,” their heart song is probably “Imagine” by John Lennon or “What aWonderful World” by Louis Armstrong. As they travel the backroads, highways and creek beds that make up the Comal Independent School District, they offer a unique perspective on education, students and families.
