TCES Morning Clubs & UIL Academic Clubs

 

The following TCES Morning clubs will be offered to students this year.  Students should read the descriptions of each TCES morning club below and indicate their 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices for TCES Morning Clubs.  Students will only be able to participate in TWO TCES Morning Clubs this year due to scheduling.

 

In addition to TCES Morning clubs, there will be many UIL Academic Clubs that we will be offering for the 2019-2020 school year. In January FIVE of the members from each club will be selected to represent Timber Creek Elementary at the annual Tomball ISD UIL Competition. Of these FIVE students, the top THREE students will compete and the other TWO will be alternates in case something happens before or during the competition.  This year the Tomball ISD UIL Competition will be held on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at Tomball Junior High School. UIL Academic Clubs are open to all 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students. Club participant maximums, teacher sponsors, meeting days and times are listed with each description below.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Yuskiewicz, the UIL Campus Coordinator at pinkyyuskiewicz@tomballisd.net.
