Accessing the Ribbit Report
The Ribbit Report is a weekly PTA newsletter emailed to all families with registered students attending Turner Creek. You can also access the weekly editions on the Turner Creek Website. Hover over the "News" tab at the top of the main page then click on "Ribbit Report". You'll see at least a months worth of Ribbit Report editions.
Starting this week, we will send the Ribbit Report in English only. However, reader's have the ability to translate it into many other languages if needed. Follow these instructions:
Open the newsletter in your email, at the top before the heading you'll see a link to view it in your web browser. Click this link.
When the newsletter opens, at the bottom right corner is an icon of a person. Click on the person.
A box will open, in the top left corner is the word Translate. Click on Translate.
It will give you an opportunity to choose the language you'd like to read it in. It will then change the entire newsletter to that language.

TCE Book Fair is Over!
Thank you to everyone who purchased books at the Book Fair. You helped make it a great success! All proceeds will go to the Media Center to purchase new books and other materials.
The Media Center would especially like to thank all the parent volunteers and staff members who helped run the Book Fair. We could not have done it without you!
Forks and Spoons
Supply chain issues are impacting our cafeteria in a big way. We are struggling to keep plastic forks and spoons in stock for breakfast and lunch. We are adding plastic forks and spoons to our Amazon Wish list. If you find some at the store, you can send them to school in your child’s bookbag. We will place a bin outside the front door of the building to collect plastic utensils that are donated. Thank you for supporting our school and this unique need.
TCE Bottle Filling Stations
Turner Creek has installed it's first Elkay ezH2O Bottle Filling Station thanks to a generous donation from Bovenizer & Baker Orthodontics!
We are on our way to purchasing a second station thanks to another generous donation from Carolina Orthodontics and Triangle Family Dentistry.
We have an additional silver level sponsor: Susan Tirgrath Realty! We are hoping to use her donation, along with other contributions, to purchase a third station in the near future.
Our goal is to raise funds to install 4 stations.

Books to Go
Books to Go is now up and running for our Virtual Academy families! Books to Go allows VA students to access TCE library books. Students can virtually browse the TCE library catalog and place holds on books they would like to check out. The library staff will then pull the books, bag them, and set them on a cart outside the Media Center (via the bus loop) for curbside pick-up. Books can be picked up and returned on school days between 9:30-3:00. Click the Books-To-Go! link below for more information. And please encourage your child to take advantage of this opportunity!
Help the PTA support the staff
Our TCE staff are so excited for this new school year! Welcome to all our new families! Our PTA has a COVID-safe way for families to help support our teachers and staff. We have an Amazon Wish List of items needed to re-supply our staff snack cart. If you order off the wish list, the items will be delivered directly to the school, so you don't even need to drop anything off. Please consider supporting our staff by visiting our Amazon Wish List. Thank you so much!
Fundraising while shopping for groceries
It is time to re-link your Harris Teeter VIC card to our school. You can do this online, at the grocery store when checking out, or in the Harris Teeter app. Or, our PTA can link it for you. Just fill out the short form here.
For more information on raising money for TCE while shopping at Publix, Amazon, or Lowe's Foods, please visit - http://www.tce-pta.org/fundraising-while-shopping.html
Turner Creek families can mark special occasions, such as a child’s birthday, by donating a book to the Media Center in your child’s name. Donating a book is a very special way to honor your child while promoting a love of reading and supporting the Turner Creek Media Center. If you would like to participate in this program, you can fill out this online form.
Close to your child's birthday, they will be invited to choose a new book which will be added to the Media Center collection. A personalized bookplate will be placed inside the front cover to commemorate your child’s special occasion and be seen by future readers. Your child will then be the first to check out the book. We hope you will take part in this meaningful program!
