Student Jobs Program
Upper grade students at Turner Creek have the opportunity to participate in a number of jobs during the school day that benefit the school community and student participants. Students are invited to apply for the positions, and must receive approval of their home-room teacher in order to participate.
The Morning News crew is responsible for scripting, filming, and delivering televised morning announcements for TCE. Students will be on a three week assignment. Students in 5th grade are eligible. The goal for the program is to help TCE start each day off with a cheerful note as well as building self-esteem for students by featuring them or their achievements on the air. Improving confidence, developing public-speaking and use of technology are additional benefits to being part of the Morning News Crew.

The job of Safety Patrol is to help maintain discipline and orderliness inside and outside the school during arrival and dismissal times. Students in 5th grade are eligible. They keep their fellow students safe by reminding them not to run and helping them if they have fallen or dropped something. They are responsible for escorting students to and from their vehicles, opening and closing doors and assisting teachers and staff during arrival and departure times. Safety Patrol students learn a sense of responsibility. Not only are they responsible for other students' safety, they are responsible for their job. They must be on time as well as find a replacement when they have another obligation.
