About Timber Lane Elementary School
Timber Lane is a Title I elementary school committed to increasing the emotional well-being and academic achievement of all students through the inclusive school model. Being a Title I school means that over 45% of the student body at Timber Lane experience poverty and receive support through the school. Timber Lane embraces these realities and views its economic and cultural diversity as a unique opportunity that enriches and broadens the educational experiences of all learners. Because of the broad range of economic diversity among the families at Timber Lane, community involvement through volunteerism and fundraising is highly encouraged, valued, and crucial as part of the total school program and student success.
The school strives to ensure that all students are respectful and responsible leaders who are collaborative, resilient and skilled problem solvers.The Timber Lane community believes in creating a safe environment that fosters respect and responsibility amongst all students so that every child can reach their fullest potential. They strive to inspire students to achieve academically, to think critically and creatively, to learn independently, and to become ethically responsible.
To date, Community Charity Champions has raised over $87,000 for the local non-profits and organizations. The HBC Group of Keller Williams Realty launched Community Charity Champions in 2012 as a venue to fundraise for local nonprofits. As good corporate citizens, Karen Briscoe and Lizzy Conroy were searching for a means to support charities in the community. The event is held on Tuesday evenings at Pulcinella Italian Host in McLean where a portion of the diner(s) is contributed to the charity of the month. Karen Briscoe and Lizzy Conroy were honored with the Corporate Social Responsibility award in 2012 by the Greater McLean Chamber of Commerce for the work HBC’s Community Charity Champions has done and continues to do for nonprofits in the area.
