Principal's Message to Families, 3/27/23


Good Afternoon Sanford Creek Families, 

Welcome Back Track 1 families - we hope you had a great break!  A special congratulations to our Odyssey of the Mind team. They placed 3rd in the State Tournament this past weekend and have been invited to compete in the World Tournament at Michigan State!  "Talent wins games, but teamwork wins championships!"  Many thanks to our parent volunteer coaches and our AIG teacher, Ms. Garland for leading this great group of kids who exemplify teamwork.   Have a great week, everyone!

Tiffany Rich, Principal

New Guidelines for Volunteer Registration

Volunteer Registration is now permitted off site. The modified WCPSS process allows for all volunteers to sign up from any location, instead of being required to sign up at a school or WCPSS facility. Please visit, click on community, volunteer, new volunteer register here. The time of the volunteer process takes about 2 weeks: from the time of submission of the volunteer Google form and the required criminal background check.

Please note:  If you do not complete both the volunteer Google form and the criminal background check, your application will not be complete.  Once you complete your Google volunteer application, you will receive a registration confirmation email. Scroll to the bottom of the email and click on the blue link to complete a background check.  Once you complete your background check, you will receive a copy of your background check report - but that does not mean that you are automatically approved to volunteer.  SCES will receive new updated approved volunteers on Mondays. Please reach out to the school to see if you are approved to volunteer. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to Ms. Alicia Matthews (school secretary) at or 919-570-2100.  


It's that Time of Year - Field Day is Here!

Parent volunteers are needed to make the day a success, full of fun and memories for all the students! You don’t have to do anything especially athletic, just help the kids stay focused on the event station, stay safe and have fun!

Sign Up links for each field day are below.  Prior to signing up, please make sure you are on the approved WCPSS volunteer list.  If you are uncertain whether you have been approved or not, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Ms. Alicia Matthews at or (919) 570-2100 x 20252.  If you would like to volunteer and still need to complete the WCPSS volunteer form, please see the directions above and complete it as soon as possible (approval can take up to two weeks).  Please note Field Day is a volunteer-only event this year.
