District Announcements

Main St. The school board will vote immediately afterward on the tax, which would fund the district’s Comprehensive 10-Point Safety Investment Plan.

    Redistricting: Our newest elementary school, at 4801 Athens Boonesboro Rd., will open in the fall of 2019. The board's School Zoning Committee is working out the details this summer, and its meetings are open to the public. Visit fcps.net/zones for updates.

  • TCMS Summer Reading

    All Tates Creek Middle School students are encouraged to read at least two books over the summer and fill out an IB MYP Learner Profile One-Pager for each book. The IB learner profile represents 10 attributes valued by IB World Schools. We believe these qualities can help individuals and groups become responsible members of local, national, and global communities. We invite students to explore these attributes through their summer reading.

  • 6th Grade Boys Basketball Open Gym

    Open Gym will be available for incoming 6th graders interested in trying out for the boys’ basketball team at Tates Creek Middle School. This is a great opportunity for incoming 6th graders to perfect their craft and prepare for tryouts. Open gym will consist of drills and workouts to develop fundamental basketball skills. Students will need a current athletic physical prior to attending open gym. Open gym will be held in the Tates Creek Middle School gymnasium. For any questions please email Coach Ross (raymond.ross@fayette.kyschools.us).

    *Attending open gym does not mean students have made the Tates Creek Middle boys’ basketball team. Each student will need to tryout in December in order to have a chance to make the team.
