Welcome Tiger Families to the 2019-2020 School Year. This school year is sure to be a special one! TPES opened its doors in August 2008. For 11 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 11 years.

Senior Abigail Redin will not only graduate this Friday, June 5, she also will be featured on KENS 5 News as a Champion for Change. Redin received this honor because of the impact she has made on her community through her two Soles4Souls shoe drives.
