Do I have to wear city pants?!
"Dad, do I have to wear city pants at Timbers?" This was what my son said to me after I told him that that board had decided to require uniforms at Timbers. He calls anything other than sweat pants and activewear "city pants".
When constructing Timber's uniform guidelines we wanted to design uniforms that were affordable for families, created unity and not distraction in the student body, and also allowed for kids to still be active for several of our activities.
In many ways the guidelines remind me of the building codes my wife and I experienced when building our home.
Some codes we understood, and many we didn't, but thankfully we trusted our contractor and he helped us navigate them while we built.
We would ask that you do the same in regards to uniforms. There are definitely reasons why we have chosen the standards we have. Now some may seem arbitrary or not what our children prefer, but be rest assured we have prayed through them and feel that they are a good fit for our kids.
Consequently, there is a point where building codes start being a detriment to the building process. This happens typically when those who don’t have experience in the process make rules and regulations based on feelings or preference and not wisdom. That is why we plan to review our guidelines each year, and adjust to best fit the needs of families.
Please feel free to reach out with further questions about our decision unless you’re asking if guys can wear yoga pants Those questions you can keep to yourself!
I'd rather be on the lake with my mind on God
Than in church with my mind on fishin'
-We have added some new styles and shirts to our Timber Gear catalog! A personal fav is the Timbers Baseball Tee. You can find them on our main page. We have also set the price points up so that we don't receive any profit, so as to make them more affordable for families.
-Make sure to get your PACE information in and done so we can start ordering curriculum.
