Empowering students with autism to achieve their greatest potential in all aspects of their lives.

March, 2024

Dear Friends,

Community is not just a word for The Timothy School, it is a guiding principle. The core of our mission is a commitment to expanding awareness, acceptance, and support for individuals with autism.

Our programs are guided by the fact that our community is not confined to the school's walls or specific hours of the day; it extends to our families, friends, businesses, organizations and beyond. 

We are proud to have evolved from a modest beginning in 1966, educating nine students, to currently serving 70 students from over 25 school districts in Southeastern PA.

As we continue to enhance and expand our programs, we need your support. Your contribution to The Timothy Fund is more than a gift; it is an investment in the sustainability and growth of our extraordinary school.

Every donation directly impacts the lives of our students, providing them with opportunities to learn, thrive, grow and, above all, be happy. Your support is integral to championing our mission and fostering a sense of belonging for individuals with autism.

Together, let's continue to advance The Timothy School, expand our community and promote our vision of a future where every individual has the chance to succeed.

Thank you,

Sarah Louise Hale

Basketball & Buddies

Thank you to The Shipley School for, once again, welcoming The Timothy School Tornadoes for an evening of basketball drills, games and pizza. The Shipley School students made a name sign for each of our players, cheered on the Tornadoes throughout the game and even handed out medals to our students. The Timothy School considers The Shipley School one of our MVFs - Most Valuable Friends.

Also in February, The Shipley School Fifth Graders visited The Timothy School to spend some time with their pals. The students had a great time learning, laughing, singing and snacking together. We look forward to seeing our Shipley buddies again, soon!

Watch Sarah Greim talk about why our community partners contribute to the success of our programs and empower our students:

Peer Support

The Timothy School students learn better together. On Valentine’s Day, Amanda Riesenberg’s class had fun making, baking and, the best part, eating yummy cupcakes.

Later in the month, the class read and studied the classic book, Charlotte’s Web, by E. B. White. Reading Assistant, talented artist and TTS alumna, Phoebe Murer, encouraged budding artist, Navy, to give a step-by-step demonstration to her classmates on how to draw a pig. Navy’s classmates enjoyed the art lesson and each student then tried their hand at drawing their own pig.

Amanda's class then joined Olivia Sims' class for Reading With A Buddy Day. The students had a great time reading, learning and socializing together.

Breaking News: TimTV Has a New Crew

Please watch the latest broadcast from our new TimTV Crew! We love their cool new uniforms created by Secondary students in The Timothy Crafters. 

TimTV, The Timothy Crafters, Popcorn and Coffee Carts and the School Store are part of the on-campus internship program for our Middle School students. By working with teachers and therapists, and cooperatively with peers, the vocational skills our students learn during their internships prepare them for community-based work experiences in the Secondary School and Transition program.

Alumni News

You are invited to join the new The Timothy School Alumni Facebook page to stay informed about upcoming activities and events and keep in touch with fellow alumni . Remember that Alumni also have a page on the TTS website, where the activities calendar and registration information is posted. 

Thank you to everyone who joined us at Flight on Ice for a fun day of skating.
