  • Dear Parents,


    We have finally made it to what should be our third week of school when actually it is our fifth day with all students on campus after kindergarten staggered start.  This school year we have more students as car riders than we have had before which makes dismissal take longer. We are taking our time making sure all students arrive home safely.


    General statute 115C-84.2 requires students have 185 days of instruction or 1,025 hours of instruction.  In order to have the first semester end before Christmas break and summer break begin before the first of June, additional minutes were added to the school day.  


    All students need down time in the afternoon and have the opportunity to do extracurricular activities and spend time with their families.  TCES teachers feel the same way that is why minimal homework is given.  For this reason, we have to make every second count to make sure our students are academically prepared for the next grade level.


    Dismissing at 3:35 each day costs 5 min. of instruction per day but when multiplied by 185 days is 925 minutes or just over 2 full days of school.  My hope is that things will begin to run smoother once students are more certain how they are going home and staff have had the opportunity for multiple opportunities to practice routines with students.


    Thank you for your understanding and supporting our students!

Welcome to Town Creek Elementary

  • Welcome to the Creek!

    Town Creek Elementary School (TCES), home of the Gators welcomes you.  Our school serves approximately 550 students in grades pre-K through 5th grade.  The staff works to promote a challenging academic atmosphere encouraging students to take ownership of their learning.  Through collaborative learning opportunities, students learn to work with each other practicing essential skills required to be 21st Century Leaders.  TCES staff are challenged to be lifelong learners as well.  Staff collaborates throughout the school year sharing strategies and ideas to increase their knowledge as well as bringing those resources and ideas into their classroom to ensure all students reach their fullest potential.

    TCES implements PBIS, Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports received recognition as a PBIS Green Ribbon School in 2013-2014 and as a PBIS Model School in 2014-2015.  We are anxiously awaiting the results for 2015-2016!  The PBIS system is a proactive system that established supports and a social culture that is necessary for all students to succeed.  Students have the opportunity to participate in celebrations throughout the school year recognizing their efforts in promoting a positive instructional environment.

    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.  There are numerous opportunities for parent and community involvement.  Brittany Wilkins, 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.

    TCES is a school community.  With the possible building of Town Creek Middle School, we have the opportunity to expand our school community even further.

  • Report Bullying

    Bullying is defined by as “unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.” Bullying behaviors are categorized in three primary types: verbal bullying, social bullying, and physical bullying. “Actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose” are all examples of bullying.


    Per Board Policy 1710/4021/7230, Brunswick County Schools and the Board acknowledge the dignity and worth of all students and employees and strives to create a safe, order, caring and inviting school environment to facilitate student learning and achievement. Brunswick County Schools and the Board prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, age, ancestry, national origin, gender, socioeconomic status, academic status, gender identity, physical appearance, sexual orientation, pregnancy, or mental, physical, developmental, or sensory disability and will provide equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups as required by law.   Brunswick County Schools and the Board will not tolerate any form of unlawful discrimination, harassment or bullying in any of its educational or employment activities or programs.
