Welcome to the Freshman Academy!
Show Your Creek Spirit!!
We are selling t-shirts for our Freshman Academy students, parents and teachers!
These t-shirts are on the super soft t-shirt material that we all love and are only $12 each! The order form is attached and we will also have copies in each classroom.
If you are interested, send your money with your student any day from now through Sept. 23! Payment must be included with the order form. They may turn money into myself, a Freshman counselor, or their Freshman Seminar teacher. These should be in before Fall Break, so your child will get plenty of opportunities to wear them throughout the year!
Creek gear is always a must for Creek Fridays and it is always fun to support your school!
Thank you! Please let me know if you have any questions!

TCHS ESS Schedule
Why is ESS such a great opportunity for freshmen?
If a student has any missing assignments but they are completed with the ESS teacher after school, there will be no late penalty for that assignment. Normally, when a student turns in an assignment after it’s due date there is a 25% deduction in the grade. If a late assignment is completed during ESS, there is no late deduction and your student can earn full points.
With our first late work deadline coming up on Tuesday, September 24, ESS is a perfect chance for students to still earn full credit in any missing assignments they may have.
Please encourage your student(s) to attend!
The Freshman Academy is a small learning community designed to successfully transition students from middle school to high school. Students and teachers are grouped into teams and are located in the same section of our building, which promotes the small learning community enrvironment. Teachers are provided embedded time to collaborate on the important conversations regarding our students: curriculum, instruction, student progress, community involvement, etc. As a result, students receive individualized instruction and support services from our staff.
Our freshman have their own principal, two counselors, and additional support staff to ensure they are thriving in regards to academics, behavior, and emotional needs.
Freshman Seminar is a required course for all 1st year freshman, which provides the opportunity to develop essential skills, such as effective time management, goal setting, organization, communication, and technological skills that will aid them on their path to graduation and a successful career path. Students will also embark on a self-discovery mission to uncover personal values and goals that will assist them when choosing a career academy for the tenth grade.
We are dedicated to providing more experiences to our freshman, so they can EXPLORE THEIR WORLD.
