Thank You to all Winding Creek Wolves for reading so much during the month of March! We had so much fun getting to slime Mr. Bolles!
Have you seen our amazing mural???
The red rock in front of the school is to raise awareness, hope, and love for our Winding Creek family suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. There is no cure. By painting the rock we hope that our Winding Creek Family and Friends will spread the word. "HELP FIND A CURE" -- Our voices are important. People suffering from this disease need us to speak for them, hope for them, and support them. Let's let them know we care! Be on the lookout for upcoming ways we can all participate. Let's join together and find a cure. We can do this Winding Creek!

The mission of Winding Creek Elementary School is to create a sanctuary for the development of the whole child. We provide a solid foundation through a nurturing and stimulating environment for all to know that they have unlimited potential to achieve their dreams.
The dedicated family of WCES, believing that all students can be successful, envision a respectful partnership within the school community resulting in an enriched learning experience while meeting the changing and diverse challenges of an information literate society. Whereas students are enthusiastic, confident, and inspired to realize their highest potential while being productive and moral citizens, by having a staff that fosters their life-long academic and social success based on individual needs.
Students throughout the school may earn "Golden Paw" stickers for following the rules all around the building. When a child earns a "Golden Paw" sticker, they bring that sticker back to their classroom teacher. Classroom teachers will place them on the "Winding Creek Golden Paws" poster on their classroom door. When a class earns ten "Golden Paw" stickers, they will receive a letter above their classroom door to spell out the words "P A W P R I D E S P I R I T". When each class spells out "Paw Pride Spirit" above their door, they will receive a special treat (such as snow cone party, popcorn party, free ice cream, etc.)
As children follow the Cafeteria Rules, they earn a "Cafeteria Paw" velcro paw on their class poster. Rules in the cafeteria are as follows:
Respect Your Pack Leaders
Keep Seated and Raise Your Paw
Keep Your Paws to Yourself
No Howling to Other Packs
Keep Your Den Clean
When a class earns 20 "Cafeteria Paws" on their class poster, the entire class earns a reward (such as free ice cream, etc.)
