Construction for the new four class addition to our school has begun and we are getting ready for our friends from Anna Melick Memorial School to join us! This is an exciting time and one that will bring some changes to the everyday routine of life at ‘The Creek.' We will keep the community informed of the latest updates/plans and progress of the construction. Click to read the update letter from April 2017.
Due to the construction, the back parking lot is now closed. If you need to park for drop-off and pick-up, there is additional parking across the road along the laneway to the cemetery. Please meet your child around the side of the school rather than at the front doors.
Twice a month, usually at the beginning and end of the month, we hold a Leader of the Pack Assembly. This is a time when staff and students gather together in the gym to recognize student success in three categories: Academic Achievement, Character Attributes and Leader of the Pack.
*Please note that a LOP award may not be awarded every month in each classroom.
Timber wolves awarded the Academic Paw are not necessarily the top achieves in the classroom. This award is for students who have shown significant development towards meeting various learning goals in their classroom.
Timber wolves awarded the Character Attribute paw have demonstrated the current months character attribute. These students exhibit positive character attributes and model to others how to display the character attribute.
Mindset is a very powerful tool for helping all of us be successful in our lives. Your mindset is a collection of thoughts and beliefs that shape your habits. Your thinking habits affect how you think, what you feel, and what you do. Your mindset impacts how you make sense of the world, and yourself.
Throughout the year our staff and students will involved in variety of activities to help us all be more aware of our own mindset, as well as the power of having a "Growth Mindset". Please click on the link below to watch a short, informative, yet motiational presentation on mindset and its importance. Enjoy!
Code of Conduct
As you may be aware, Ryan's Law, 2015, was passed by the Ontario Legislature. This piece of legislation is an important step to support the well-being of students with asthma in Ontario schools. Over the course of the next school year, Grand Erie District School Board will be working to implement the requirements of this legislation.
In the meantime, if your child has asthma, we ask that you immediately contact the main office at your school to provide information about your child’s asthma medication. With your permission, your child will be allowed to carry their asthma medication. By the next school year, a more formal process to identify students with asthma and their asthma medication will be put into place to better support the needs of your child.
The Ministry of Education website has resources on asthma.
As a best practice and to support your child, please let the school know if your child has a medical condition so that the school is aware and can keep this information on file. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

TCES is peanut/nut aware. No peanut or nut products are permitted at school for the safety of our students with anaphylactic allergies. This includes peanut butter substitute products like Wow butter. Watch granola bars closely and things like Nutella that also are nut-based. Baked treats for sharing are not encouraged for this reason. Labelled treats are best for celebrations.
