Welcome To Turlington!
The first day at a new school can be scary for some people. At Turlington, we do not want that to happen. Student Council (which I am in) sets up a "New Student Social" where we give the new students cookies and juice while we talk to them and make them feel at home. We do that regularly for all the new students who have joined here over the past few months. We also welcome the new student with a tour of our school. We show them our library, music, the gym, the cafeteria and their classroom. Along the way we learn their name, where they came from and things that they are interested in. Many parents join in on the tour as well, this is our first chance to make these new kids feel right at home.
Many students at the social say they already have friends and they like the social, the school, and everyone in the school. Very few are shy, and the ones who are not, talk about how they are doing in school and what they like about it. Student Council is very proud to have such an impact on all of the new students here at Turlington.
Teacher of the Year - Christina Conklin
I am so grateful to have been named Turlington’s Teacher of the Year! There are so many teachers on our staff who deserve this award, and I’m incredibly honored to work alongside those who spend their lives selflessly serving all of our precious TES kids. It is an incredible feeling to work in a school and district where students are put first and teachers’ voices can be heard. I consider it a true blessing to have the opportunity to share my passion for reading and writing every day to the fourth graders here at Turlington. Thank you so much for this amazing honor!

I am extremely honored to be chosen as Turlington’s 2015-2016 “Rookie of the Year.” This is my 1st year teaching at Turlington Elementary and I have enjoyed every minute. It is truly a blessing being a part of such a prestigious group of individuals who truly enjoy what they do. It is a blessing to teach the beautiful students that attend Turlington. Teaching students with special needs is my passion and also the most rewarding experience. Seeing my students grow and progress is the biggest affirmation I could ever receive. My heart is overjoyed to be selected as the “2015-2016 Rookie of the Year”.
Support Staff of the Year - Charlie Cook
What an honor it is to be named Turlington’s Paraprofessional of the Year for 2015-2016. I genuinely love what I do here. Between working with my wonderful PPCD students in the morning to running the science lab for my 3rd-5th graders in the afternoon, it is a wonderful feeling. I am grateful that I was given this opportunity to begin the first year of Turlington’s science lab; it is running smoothly with the help of our amazing and supportive faculty and staff. I cannot wait to continue this amazing journey. Thank you all!
