Dear Turner Creek Families,

 

It has been a wonderful first week of Staff Appreciation at Turner Creek.  A huge thank you to our PTA for the special treats each day.  Staff enjoyed lunch, breakfast, coffee, fruit, and lots of sweets. In the morning, I loved seeing students deliver cards, flowers, and other gifts to show our staff some love.  We will celebrate our Track 3 teachers next week.  If you are in need of ideas, you can find Staff Favorite Things (Linked) here.  

 

See the treats the PTA provided linked here.  

 

Today is the last day to fill out the Family Engagement Survey.  See below for details.  We would love your feedback!

 

Our first Field Day was a huge success thanks to the efforts of our PTA, Mr. Whilden, and all of our parent volunteers.  Thank you all for your support.  Staff and students had a wonderful time playing together.  Next Friday, May 13, Tracks 3 and 4 students will have Field Day.  See below to sign up to volunteer.  

 

Please remember that if you need anything at all, you can reply to this email or email me directly at ksmall@wcpss.net

2021-2022 Caregiver/Student Handbook (Linked)

 

Please bookmark our handbook for the upcoming school year.  It will be a “first stop” as you have questions about the everyday operations at Turner Creek.  This handbook will always be in “draft” form as we are in a current world where change is the new norm.  I hope it will be a good resource for you and your family.

Family Engagement Survey

 

Please take a few minutes to complete this year's family engagement survey between April 4th and May 6th. The survey will ask parents/guardians questions about the quality of the school environment, how well your child’s school communicates with families, whether your school actively encourages family involvement, and similar topics.

 

The data gathered in this survey will help schools make improvements in all of these areas, so we strongly encourage you to participate. 

 

The link to access the survey is:  surveys.panoramaed.com/wakecounty/family

Field Day Volunteers Needed

 

50 volunteers are needed for each session of Field Day so the students can enjoy all the stations. ALL volunteers need to be approved volunteers. If you haven't already registered to volunteer, please stop by the school and fill out the form so you will be able to help at Field Day.
