The PTA is excited to announce that we have gone digital!  Going online allows us to be green, save time and go mobile! Earlier this week families were sent an email with information detailing our new online initiative.

Pull out your paint, film and dictionary. Dust off your camcorder and musical instruments and put on your dancing shoes… it’s time for the 2014-15 PTA Reflections Program!

Boosterthon

TCE PTA would like to thank the following companies for their support of our upcoming Boosterthon Fun Run T-shirts: Marco's Pizza, Nina Parker Realty Group, Mercury Gate, and Liz Toler-Hair designer at Sola Salons. Their generous support has provided the opportunity to provide each child with their very own spirit-wear Boosterthon t-shirt...


United Arts Update

Please welcome Tony Peacock back to TCE.  We are very happy to have him again for his annual Writer in Residency program.


Busing Reminder

Traditional school starts on Monday!  This means that our busing times will most likely be different than they have been.  

In the afternoons you can keep up with when buses arrive and depart from TCE on twitter.   Click on our Twitter link underneath Quick Links to follow us.  You do not need to have your own twitter account to read Turner Creek's twitter page!

Cross Walk Safety

It is IMPERATIVE that drivers stop when students are in or about to be in the crosswalk turning into TCE!!!!!  We don't have enough staff members to supervise this crosswalk and there aren't enough parent volunteers able to help out.  It is up to the drivers to watch for the students.  Remember, the students walking and riding bikes are coming to school just like your children and we want everyone to get here safely!


State Fair Tickets

The North Carolina State Fair is coming and Turner Creek can benefit from early ticket sales!  We've added the State Fair icon that will link to the online ticket sales website under "Quick Links.”


Turner Creek PTA Membership Drive, Become a Member!

With every new school year, the PTA launches it's membership drive. Our goal at Turner Creek is to have 100% of our families join the PTA. When you join the PTA, the largest volunteer child advocacy organization in the United States, you join millions of others who provide support for issues affecting school-age children.

Chorus Cues

Welcome to the 2014-15 school year! Your fourth or fifth grade child is invited to join the Turner Creek Concert Chorus. Our chorus information and commitment form is located under the Chorus Tab (highlighted in yellow) on our TCE webpage. Please read, print, complete and return our chorus information commitment form.


Kindergarten Lunch Volunteers Needed for New School Year

The Kindergarteners coming in are need of a little help during lunch. Lunchtime is a new experience for them that takes a little practice. The children have to hold their trays, get food, pick milk and THEN give their number to pay. We need four volunteers to come in each day that can help the children get through the line, get to the table, and eat within the time they are given.


GoPlaySave is in Full Swing!

Our school is midway through the GoPlaySave fundraiser.  All tracks have received their fundraising packets with tracks 1 and 2 having finished up last week.  Thank you to all of the families that have returned their unpurchased coupon book. Also a thank you to those of you that have done some great fundraising by selling this book… and hopefully many more!
