Family Engineering Night

Timberline PK8 had a fabulous Family Engineering Night. Students were able to show their parents how they are engineers by working with them on some engineering stations. The families received a passport and were able to participate in 8 different stations. They learned about communication through lego building, roller coasters, how different materials make many sounds, creating the longest diving board with dominoes, how nature insipired our technolgoy, how stong are towers, learning about engineering jobs and building arches.

Computer Programming Week a Huge Success at Timberline

"Coding is awesome!" was shouted by a group of 6th graders on their way from math class to lunch. Students all across the building agreed. Many students even earned their "Hour of Code" certificate from code.org. One of the highlights of the week was when 8th graders partnered with kindergarteners to introduce them to simple coding programs, including Daisy the Dinosaur and Lightbot.

ICAP journey empowers students and their families

 

Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) is a multi-year process that intentionally guides students and families in the exploration of career, academic and post-secondary opportunities.

It is a transformative plan that spans the lives of students from middle high school years through high school while continuing into adulthood.

Rethinking Assessment at Timberline

In Mr. Thesenga's 8th grade physics class, students experienced a new way of being assessed. Instead of walking in and being handed a paper and pencil or a computer to log into, they took their seats at independent lab stations. Each station had every tool and material they had used throughout their unit on density. Students were then given a task to complete, which only required some of the tools and materials. The performance task truly showed whether or not students had mastered the concepts addressed during their regular science lab sessions.
