• Welcome back newsletter August 2023

    Hello Tambark Creek Families! I hope your summer is going well and that you are enjoying the weather.  I am excited to welcome you back to the 2023-24 school year and a special welcome goes out to our newest families to Tambark Creek.

    This year is going to another amazing year for our Tambark Creek students, staff, and families.  We will continue to strive to be the best we can be.  Our 3rd through 5th grade students performed well on the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) in the spring.  Parents should have received scores and information regarding their child’s SBA results. We are excited to partner with our wonderful PTSA for family events, fundraisers, student art contests, and much more.  Please join our TCE PTSA and volunteer at school.  We appreciate your support for students and staff.  We will post all future events as well as information about ordering our TCE spirit wear on Tambark Creek website and Facebook page.  https://www.everettsd.org/tambarkcreek

    We are excited to welcome our kindergarten students and families on August 24th from 5:30-6:30 at our kindergarten orientation event. Parents, please enter through the front doors of the school. We will also be excited to see our 1st grade through 5th grade families and students at our meet and greet on September 5th. 

    Throughout the school year, I will send out communication to all families via phone, emails, and text messages as well as my monthly parent newsletters.  Please let the office staff know if you are not receiving them. Your child’s classroom teacher announcement will be available through Home Access Center (HAC) on August 31st

    Tambark Creek’s school day begins at 9:10 and dismissal is at 3:30. Every LIF (Learning Improvement Friday) Friday is a 2:15 dismissal.  Students can purchase lunch or bring their own lunch. Please prepay on our district website https://www.everettsd.org/payments  No glass containers or glass lined thermoses due to student safety.

    At Tambark Creek all students are required to wear a uniform.  Here is a link to our uniform policy: https://docushare.everett.k12.wa.us/docushare/dsweb/Get/Document-129321/TCEUniform%20Guidelines.pdf
