A Letter from Principal Dean
September 8, 2020
Timberline Students and Families:
Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year. As I begin my seventh year as Timberline’s principal, I am grateful to be at a school that I love and in a community as great as the Timberline community.
I appreciate the support we get every year from the families of our students. The partnership between the school and community is very unique at Timberline. For years, we have worked together to assure the success of our students, and this year that partnership will be more important than ever.
As we start this year in the remote setting, we understand that there will be difficulties and challenges that we have not faced previously. With that in mind, I assure you that we will continue to be dedicated to the success of our students. Our entire staff cares deeply about meeting the academic, social-emotional, and safety needs of our students. We are lucky to have teachers, counselors, office professionals, paraeducators, and custodians dedicated to the well-being of our students. Even though the setting is different, Timberline’s focus on learning, a positive culture, and high expectations for ourselves and our students will not change.
Timberline started in 1970 and our plan to celebrate 50 years at the end of last year was postponed. We hope to celebrate Timberline’s 50th in May this year if it is safe to do so. We will be sharing more on that as the school year progresses.
Thank you again to everyone in the Blazer family for making this a very special place. I look forward to a successful school year.
