Greetings from your Timberlin Creek Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (TCE PTO)!

Greetings, Timberlin Creek families!
Summer is almost here and another successful school year is coming to a close! Your PTO wishes all of you and yours a happy, relaxing, and fun-filled summer. To our fifth graders moving on to middle school, we wish you success in your new endeavor. To students returning to TCE next year, we can't wait to enjoy another year with you beginning in the fall.


May 25 - Fifth Grade Celebration

May 26 - Last Day of School and Fifth Grade Graduation!

URGENT REQUEST: PTO Needs Your Talent!

We are already looking ahead to the next school year and have found that we have a few positions that are opening up this summer and in the fall. Now is the perfect time to start shadowing the people who hold these positions this year so you can have a head start and be well on your way to success in the fall. Keep in mind that none of these positions require you to be the lead for the remainder of this school year. This is just an opportunity to work closely with the current chair and learn the ropes.

IMORTANT NOTE: If the PTO cannot fill the available positions, the events associated with the positions will not occur.
Example: If we do not have a Mother/Son Event Chair, there will be no Mother/Son event.


  • Boosterthon Chair (Dads, we're looking at you!)

  • Family Fundraiser Event Chair

  • Family Fun Night Chair

  • Father/Daughter Dance Co-Chair

  • Fundraiser Chair (Small-to-Medium Fundraisers)

  • Mother/Son Event Chair

  • Recycling Chair

  • Sunshine Committee Chair

Position Explanations and Nomination Form.

If you are interested in shadowing any of these positions, email Pam Strub.

Our TCE fifth graders are moving on to their next life phase. Your PTO is hosting a celebration in their honor on May 25, 2016. The soon-to-be sixth graders will attend their graduation ceremony on May 26, 2016.
