Timberview Honors June 2

The Timberview Honors have become a proud tradition in the TMS Family. This special ceremony is designed to celebrate students and even a few staff for exceptional character and service--qualities that extend beyond academics and help our young people to grow as leaders.


We will hold the Timberview Honors on June 2, the morning of the last day of school, so that our entire student body can see examples of above and beyond character and service that our staff and students have noticed and want to recognize.


In a community of over 1200 people, this ceremony recognizes a relatively small sampling of students and staff. Invitations will be mailed to the families of award recipients, but anyone in the TMS Family is welcome to attend.


We humbly and respectfully request that our families resist calling the campus to inquire about whether or not a student will receive an award or why a child received/did not receive an award. We have TONS of great kids at TMS, and many great kids will not receive a Timberview Honors award. We love all of our students and look forward to celebrating as a family some special characteristics and acts of service that stood out to us this year!

NJHS Citizenship Awards

Students were honored at the National Junior Honor Society Inductions this week for their outstanding contributions to our school and community. Several were awarded Citizenship awards as well as "pinning" the new officers for next year.

Physical/Medical History Form

Along with the online registration forms, athletes are also required to provide a physical and medical history form. These forms are available on the registration site and must be printed out, filled out, and signed by a physician. Physicals may date back to January 1, 2016. The physical does not have to be completed by your primary physician, and most minute clinics or Care Now sites can complete these for you at a reasonable cost. You may turn completed physicals into the front office or your athlete can turn them in to their PE teacher upon their completion. Please be sure to sign the bottom of the medical history form, forms will not be accepted if they do not have a parent signature.

Girls Athletic Preview Days

UIL has granted us the opportunity to hold an athletic preview for the incoming 7th graders. This 3-day trial will allow students the opportunity to experience what athletics is all about prior to the upcoming school year. Students will be put through different types of sport specific practices and workouts during this three day period. Attendance is not mandatory and registration is not required. Students may attend one day, two days, or all three days (each day will be different.) However we MUST have a physical on file in order to allow participation. Dates and times are listed below:

Tuesday, May 17, 2015 4:00-5:30 PM
Wednesday, May 18, 2015 4:00-5:30 PM
Thursday, May 19, 2015 4:00-5:30 PM

Incoming 7th Grade Girls Athletic Parent Meeting

At the conclusion of the 3 day preview on Thursday, May 19th, we will hold our informational parent meeting to give you important information pertaining to athletics. Items that will be discussed include: Sports offered, athletic paperwork, expectations, and athletic gear.


If you are unable to attend the parent meeting any information discussed will be emailed out the following day. Again, attendance is not mandatory for parents or athletes, but if you have never had a child go through our athletic program it will help to answer some of the unknowns.

If you have questions pertaining to any information regarding athletics, please sent correspondence to the Girls Athletic Coordinator, Kristal Robeson at kristal.robeson@kellerisd.net
