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.
