Welcome to WCES!
Wolf Pack Pride! That is what it is about at Winding Creek Elementary School! From the moment you step through the door as a student, teacher, parent, staff, family, or community member, you become a part of "The Creek" family. You are a member of the Pride!
Winding Creek has an established reputation as a school where students are valued, challenged, and appreciated; however, we are not resting on our excellent reputation. As a staff, we have participated in professional development that has identified critical 21st Century (All Century) Skills our students must learn and develop to become All Century Learners. At Winding Creek we call them the 5 C's: Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, and Character. Teachers are developing engaging learning opportunities that blend technology with the 5 C's: critical thinking, collaboration, communication, creativity, persistence, curiosity, growth mindset, adaptability, and courage. We have just begun this work and look forward to sharing the journey with you as your visit our school.
As a member of the Pride, you are always welcome. We value parents, family, and community members to help in our classrooms and around the school. It does "take a village", and we hope you take the opportunity to volunteer in your child's classroom, around the school, or for different functions throughout the year.
We have an outstanding PTO!!! They support our school throughout the year, and we could not provide all of the family events without them. Please join the PTO and volunteer for just one event this year. Many hands make light work and if everyone would volunteer for one event, we would have the most successful PTO in all of Stafford. Please contact them by clicking on the channel for "Our School" and look for the PTO folder.
So if you are already a member of the Pride, great! If you are moving to the area, we look forward to meeting you and welcoming you as a new member of "The Creek" family.
