Walmart Donates School Supplies

Thank you to our California, MD Walmart for the generous donation of school supplies for our students!


Town Creek Elementary School is a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS) School.

Throughout the first weeks of school, TCES teachers will teach, model, and provide opportunities for your student to practice how to be respectful, responsible, and safe in all areas of our school. TCES Behavior Matrix

We encourage you to ask your child about TC tickets and our school-wide expectations.
