Principal's  Letter  
 
Timberlin Creek Families,
 
Peanut Butter Drive - Tomorrow is the last day for our Feeding America peanut butter drive. Currently our grade level leaders are:
 
Kindergarten - Mrs. Germany/Mrs. Geer;
First Grade - Mrs. Stringer;
Second Grade - Mrs. Hinson;
Third Grade is a tie between Mrs. Tople and Mrs. Canterbury; Fourth Grade - Mrs. Watson;
Fifth Grade - Mrs. Couch.
 
It is not too late for you to turn in your jars of peanut butter, bring them tomorrow to be included in your class count!
 
Fall Pictures - Cady Studio will be here on Thursday, October 6 to take our fall pictures. These are the pictures that are used for our yearbook. Make sure you are dressed your best on Thursday! We are looking forward to seeing all of our students' smiling faces.
 
Volunteer Orientation Day - We invite all of our school volunteers to join us on Tuesday, October 4 at 8:30 a.m. in the cafeteria. Breakfast will be served. This is our opportunity to show our appreciation for your service and review ways you can assist us here at Timberlin Creek. We hope all of our volunteers are able to join us.
 
Eating lunch with your child - Thank you to our families from last year and the PTO for your fundraising efforts! We now have our outdoor seating area available for our families. If you choose to eat lunch with your child, we ask that you let a cafeteria monitor know you are taking your child to eat outside. The monitor will place your child's name on a whiteboard in the cafeteria so the teacher knows where their students are located when they pick them up after lunch. We are not able to accommodate our families at the actual cafeteria tables with the classes. We ask that you use the outdoor seating area. Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to grow.
 
Your Learning Leader,
Mrs. Hemingway

Safety is our first concern!  Please be conscious of the safest method of letting your child exit from your vehicle.  For the safety of your child, our staff, and our safety patrol students, children must always exit on the passenger side of the vehicle.

Important Dismissal Procedures
  
Dismissal is at 2:50 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. School dismisses ONE HOUR EARLY EVERY WEDNESDAY at 1:50 p.m.
For the safety of all of our students, parents are asked to call in all transportation changes no later than one half-hour before dismissal (2:15 p.m. / 1:15 p.m).  In addition, students that will be leaving early must be checked out one half-hour prior to dismissal.
 
This allows us to disseminate this new information to all of the applicable parties and ensure that your child reaches his/her correct destination safely.  Thank you for helping us keep your child safe!

  

Smile!  You're on Camera!
 

For the safety of our students and all visitors to our campus, 24-hour video cameras (interior and exterior) are in use on our campus.
 
We must ask that you NOT park in the reserved parking spots.  These must be available for the staff that are here late at night.

Videos, Photographs and Recording
Students, parents and visitors are not allowed to videotape, photograph or make audio recordings while on school premises except for Open House and public events
(including plays, musicals, fairs, fundraiser raisers, and awards/recognitions.) All recording devices must be turned off at school. The purpose of this general rule is to foster an appropriate educational environment, prevent unwarranted disclosure of student images and information, and to comply with the requirements of the negotiated agreement with the
St. Johns Education Association.
