Town Creek Elementary School (TCES) is the home of the Gators!
Our school will serve approximately 685 students in grades K through 4th grade in the 2023-2024 school year. Our staff works to promote a challenging academic atmosphere encouraging students to take ownership of their learning. We believe that all students can grow and should be challenged academically. Our grade level teams work to provide an environment that is conducive to learning, student growth and achievement.
TCES implements PBIS, Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. The PBIS system is a proactive system that establishes supports and a social culture that is necessary for all students to succeed. You can often hear TCES Gator students talking about their Dojo points, tickets to earn icecream on Fridays, Gator of the Month award monthly, as well as Pizza with the Principal recognition for perfect attendance. The Fluency Fairy visits classrooms monthly with the party cart to reward students who have met grade level math fluency. We enjoy rewarding all of the positives within our building!
The success of our students does not happen independent of outside support. Parents and volunteers play an essential role in promoting and enriching the educational experience for students. We are extremely thankful for the parent involvment at TCES. There are also numerous opportunities for parent and community involvement. Jennifer Perkins (firstname.lastname@example.org), our Parent Facilitator can provide more information regarding opportunities for you to support our staff and students.
TCES has a very supportive and active PTA. The events this group has coordinated have allowed additional supports and resources to be purchased for students to access each day as well as support our teachers and staff. We are extremely thankful for them! Please email our PTA President, Crystal Dameron, email@example.com if you have any questions regarding PTA.

💜 Please be in close contact with your child’s teacher about afternoon transportation. ClassDojo (https://www.classdojo.com/) is the best way to communicate or a note in your students take home folder.
💜Transportation Changes - Please use ClassDojo your child’s teacher before 1:30 daily with any transportation changes. You may also send a note in your child’s communication folder, or email your child's teacher. You may not make transportation changes over the phone.
💜Early Checkouts - Please do your best to make student appointments after school or on workdays. We know that this is not always possible but we want our students as long as we can. As you can imagine, getting all of our students to their correct afternoon location is our highest priority. Students who leave school before dismissal are considered TARDY.
💜If you are late in dropping off your student off in the morning. Please park and sign them in as TARDY. Please do your best to be on time- the tardy bell will ring at 8:35 daily. Students also receive a TARDY if they are checked out early. We want to make every moment count!
💜 Car rider line in the morning- We will begin getting students out of cars at 8:10. Parents may walk students to class the FIRST WEEK ONLY. After the first week, we ask all families to join the car rider line for drop off.
💜 With our ever growing population, we cannot accept lunch time visitors at this time. This is due to limited space in the cafeteria.
