TCE Important Info
Birthdays are very special for children, but please do not plan a "party" at school for your child's birthday. You many send a birthday treat for the class to enjoy. Please send individual-sized portions that are ready for us with napkins and utensils if needed. If you plan to send in treats please send me an email a few days in advance so I can plan accordingly. You can leave treats with your child or come in and help the class celebrate. We will celebrate summer birthdays in the month of May. For weekend birthdays, let me know which day works the best for you and your child. Also, please do not send party invitations to school. Hurt feelings occur when every child is not invited.
If your child will be leaving school early, please send an email or note to the teacher. Students leaving prior to the 3:40 dismissal will need to be signed out in the office. The office will notify the classroom and we will send your child to the office.
If your child will be going home a different way please inform me of any changes. Also, please send an email tothe office staff. This will ensure that your message will be received by someone in the office, just in case I am absent.
If your child is going home with a friend I will need a note. Students who take the bus home with a friend will need a note for the teacher AND bus driver. The bus driver will not allow guests on the bus without a note.
This is done to keep our students safe!
Our lunch time is 12:15-12:45. You are welcome to join your child for lunch. Please check in at the office and wait for your child in the cafeteria.
For specific information regarding our cafeteria please visit the food and nutrition website.
We go outside for recess unless extreme weather conditions prevent it. Please have your child dressed appropriately for the weather. All children will go outside unless a health condition prevents it, in which a note from home must be sent on each day the child needs to miss recess.
Our scheduled day is from 8:35-3:40. Students may begin coming to the classroom at 8:25, which will allow them time to put away coats/backpacks and be ready to begin class on time. The school day begins in a more positive manner when children are on time and ready to learn! Please notify the office if your child will not be at school. The Timber Creek Attendance line is 239.7805. If you have a planned vacation, please inform Dr. Bakke in writing prior to your vacation.
