The Principal of Timber Lane ES has asked local schools if they can help raise money for grocery gift cards for their families in need during the Covid-19 crisis. Timber Lane has almost 600 students, of which almost two-thirds are low-income and require support. You can use the donate button below and the PTA will provide the gift cards to Principal Ben Chiet. Given the immediate needs of families due to the Covid-19 crisis, we are running this fundraiser from Monday, March 23 through Wednesday, April 1, 2020. Please give if you can!
The PTA Board felt a need to raise with Superintendent Brabrand the concerns we have heard from parents about FCPS' decision to limit communication that teachers have with families during the first two weeks of this four-week school closure. Fairfax County Council PTA, our PTA council, agreed to forward our letter, in which we urged him to encourage teachers to share ideas and suggestions with parents to help them feel less isolated and more supported during this difficult situation.
