Tips & Info – New TCE Families

WELCOME TO TORRENCE CREEK
We are thrilled you are here! Being new to our school brings excitement, anticipation and can be a little scary. Below are some helpful tips from your PTA to help you out. Welcome to the Eagle Family!

We would love to meet you!

  • Please Contact Us at Contact Us or call us 980.343.0695 for a personal tour.
  • The CMS website is full of information about CMS Schools and will be a helpful resource

Drop Off /Pick Up

  • Students are not allowed to enter the building until 8:00 am and the bell rings at 8:30
  • School Pick up is at 3:30 pm.  Car Rider Tags must be diaplayed in the window during pick up. Forms for Car Riders are available by calling the school at 980.343.0695
  • If you need to make a transportation change for your student, please email Mrs. Pizzuti sheril.pizzuti@cms.k12.nc.us.  Please include a contact phone number in your email in case the school needs to call for more information.  Emails must be posted before 1:30 on the day the change will be made
  • If your student is a walker, please wait at the walker gate to meet them. Staff members are in place monitoring their progress to the gate and Mr. Brawley  will be there to make sure they are safely delivered into your hands.

Spirit / Unity Days

  • Each Friday at TCE is Spirit Day – Students are encouraged to wear Purple or Gold
  • You can also purchase Spirit Wear from the TCE online store 
  • The First Tuesday of each month is Unity Day. Students and staff are encouraged to wear orange to show awareness for bullying prevention

Pretzel Thursday

  • During the school year, you will be contacted about the option to purchase a pretzel to be delivered to your child on the 1st Thursday of each month. A portion of the proceeds from these sales go directly to TCE
  • This is a fun but optional way to help support TCE. Information will be sent to you in the first few weeks of school about this program.

Box Tops

  • One easy way to support TCE is probably sitting right in your house! TCE partners with Box Tops for Education which provides funds to our school
  • Simply cut the Box Tops of many popular items found in our local grocery stores and send them in on Box Top Collection days
  • TCE receives 10cents for each box top

Paint the Rock
Painting the Rock on a student’s birthday is a TCE tradition. It is a free and fun way to celebrate your student!

  • Sign up information and details can be located on the Paint the Rock Sign Up section of the TCE PTA Website
