When schools closed in March, the traditional end-of-year band concerts that showcase a year’s worth of practice and progress were effectively canceled. Rose Hill Middle School (RHMS) Band Instructor, Angela Laulainen got creative during the remote learning period and had her students record their parts at home.
Timberline Middle School welcomes new students with carnival themed event
Coming in September 2019, Timberline Middle School will welcome incoming students to the new school at Redmond Ridge. Students will transition from three feeder schools, including Ella Baker Elementary, Rosa Parks Elementary and Laura Ingalls Wilder Elementary School. To introduce the students to their new community and connect them with each other, Timberline hosted a school-wide, carnival themed event on May 28.
The event featured an array of activities for everyone to enjoy. Students caught up with their friends and made new ones while enjoying hula hoop toss, mini golf and face paint to a photo booth, Yardzee (giant yard dice game) and Bingo. A food truck, cotton candy and candy bar were also on site during the event.
Timberline is one of eight bond projects approved by voters in 2016. The school has capacity for up to 900 students. It is 134,000 square feet with 24 standard classrooms, instrumental and vocal music, special education, art, lab science, Career and Technical Education, library, cafeteria/commons with stage, and gymnasium. Timberline will be one of four new schools opening in the fall of 2019. To learn more about the project, visit the Building on Success web page.
