Sweet Rewards

Who was excited for winning a popsicle party?! Ms. O’Connor’s class. They and their families brought in 925 Box Tops (at $.10/each, that”s quite a feat for these little kids with big spirit)!

Be sure to stop by and see their certificate and trophy for being the highest-earning class during the 1st trimester.

Who will be the winning 2nd trimester class? Keep sending in those Box Tops, deadline February 23rd. It could be your child’s class!

Sweetheart Dance

Due to its success last year, the 2nd Annual Sweetheart Dance will surely be the highlight of this event year!  It’s a magical and fun evening for TIMA students of all grades and their families. Dress-up in your finest, bring a sweetie or two, and plan on having the night of your life!  We’ll have a DJ spinning all of the coolest music, dessert tables filled with yummies, a selfie station with props and more! And, we’ll have beautifully created corsages and boutonnieres for advance sale, custom-made by talented artist, designer and TIMA parent Stephania LaRonge-Tillman.

TIMA Gear Sighting

Spotted during winter break!!

TIMA student, Lindsey, outside in the snow, wearing her TIMA hoodie.  Her mom said she wouldn’t wear anything else.  We think she looks great!

If you want to be as fashionable as Lindsey, and you don’t have your own TIMA Winter Wear,  you are in luck.  The CREW still has a limited amount of long-sleeved t’s, pullover hoodies, and full-zip hoodies to sell in both youth and adult sizes.  Go to our Square Store at https://squareup.com/store/tima-ptva to purchase.  TIMA hoodies can be worn over uniforms and long-sleeve t-shirts can be worn on dress down and Spirit Wear days.


This past week, we enjoyed a rare treat….a snow day!  Here!  In Coastal Georgia!  Our Northern friends probably thought us cute but we just couldn’t contain our excitement.  How could we?  Just look at all the fun we had on the beach and in the city, in the backyard or in the park, with our animals, friends and families.  Check out these great pics!

P.S. thank you to everyone who answered the call and shared these fantastic images.  #timasnowday

P.S.S.  Perhaps Ms. Richards and Coach Neff will give all of these kids extra credit for working on the skills learned in their specials.  😉


Barnes and Noble Bookfair

The holiday season is upon us, and the TIMA CREW is kicking things off in a big way!

December 2, at Barnes and Noble at the Oglethorpe Mall, we’ll be hosting a Bookfair with 10% of all net sales for those who use our special TIMA Bookfair voucher.  Be on the lookout for those to come home soon!

Here’s the scoop:

Bring your voucher into the store.  It will be honored all day from 9 am – 10 pm on almost all purchases.  Forgot your voucher?  No worries.  Just tell the cashier you are shopping with the TIMA Bookfair and your purchases will still be counted towards our total.

Barnes and Noble will be running a few specials just for us:

-Whole Cheesecake Factory CHEESECAKES can be purchased $40.  We have been assured the Cafe at Barnes and Noble will have a freezer full of the goods, and can even split and combine flavors if desired.

-We are giving away LEGO Ninjago Dragon Building Kits to the first 25 TIMA students who check in with the CREW volunteers that day, beginning at NOON (while supplies last).

-Teachers & educators will receive 25% off ALL purchases that day (which happens to be Educator Appreciation Day).   Teachers must present their cards for discounts (be sure to activate them before use any time at the Manager’s Station).

AND because it is Educator Appreciation Day, and we know you adore you teachers to the moon and back, the CREW will have a bunch of “wishlist” items for you to purchase for your child’s teacher, courtesy of our CREW elf, Ms. Ingram, who has her eyes and ears everywhere.

Some additional TIMA events:

12:30 pm The school chorus will perform

1:00 pm Story time

4:30 pm Students from the gifted program will challenge customers to chess

6:30 pm Students will demonstrate robotics (tentative)

We’ll have TIMA CREW greeters and gift wrappers and a whole bunch of fun!

And, if you aren’t able to come in, or you want to shop and help us more, you can visit bn.com/bookfairs and enter our code from the voucher for up to 7 days (December 9) after our in-store event.  Terms and conditions apply.
