The Fast 4s Volleyball Tournament is just around the corner. Students in teams of 4 will participate in a round robin volleyball tournament collecting points to win their names on the TMS Fast Fours trophy. The tournament is fast paced, exciting, and a great way to spend a Friday Night with friends and family. The cost is $5 per participant per event and each team will have 4 players. Please fill out a team form and return it to Mrs. Bass in room M108. The form will be available in the front office on Tuesday. This event is sponsored by the TMS STARS Dance Team.

Join the TMS STARS for some great music, excitement, and a whole bunch of fun on September 26th at 6:30 PM in the TMS gym. For more information, contact Mrs. Bass atjennifer.bass@kellerisd.net.

Hawk Club (Dads' Volunteer Group)

Dads, grandfathers, uncles, and other father figures, are you ready to serve for a half or a full day during the school year? We are very excited to start our Hawk Club at Timberview! The goal of the program is to help schools be positively influenced by the committed involvement of fathers and father figures.


Hawk Club volunteers perform a variety of tasks including assistance with arrival and dismissal of students, monitoring in the lunchroom, supervising students during transitions, helping in classrooms, assisting teachers, and providing support for school safety.


Criminal Background Check


Keller ISD policy requires that every volunteer must complete and submit a criminal history background check form before interacting with students. A new criminal history background check form must be completed by volunteers each school year.


You will need to email Ruben Dominguez at ruben.dominguez@kellerisd.net if you are interested in serving as a volunteer Dad. There is also an informational flyer in the EMonday folder.


Join today and make a difference in the lives of our students!
