Our Mission

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.
Our Vision

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.


Paw Pride

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.)
Cafeteria Paws

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.)
