MAGICAL MOMENTS: Woods Creek Bulletin February 5, 2024

Welcome to February, we are officially 5 months away from greeting our first group of students at Woods Creek Elementary!  Below you will find helpful information, including  more details around track assignments and family preferences.  Please only submit one request per family to help us effectively manage and follow up on all requests.

Track Assignments
Track assignments are made based on multiple factors including: number of classes per grade level, staffing, and any year-round middle school siblings.  Please keep in mind that there are class-size laws that we must follow. The goal is always to keep tracks balanced in order to best meet the needs of all students.  At this time Kindergarten - 3rd Grade will open with all 4 tracks. 4th & 5th Grade are scheduled to open with Tracks 1 & 4 with the option to add track 2 as enrollment increases. Families will be notified of your final track assignment for the 2024-2025 school year in early April.

When considering a track please note that Tracks 1, 3, and 4 all have approximately four weeks of overlapping summer vacation with traditional calendar schools if you are considering alignment for older siblings.   Family input on the benefits of each track can be found at Year Round Track Highlights.

Enrollment
Please direct all enrollment questions to your current school.  If you have a rising Kindergarten student, please direct questions to the school where you registered.  For any questions about transfers or assignment, please contact the WCPSS Office of Student Assignment. You can call them at (919) 431-7333 or visit their website at https://www.wcpss.net/student-assignment.

Before/After School
The Kraft Family YMCA is excited to offer Before and After School programs on-site at Woods Creek Elementary school. The school programs include a wide range of activities including arts and crafts, active games, plenty of outside time, character development, and positive role models. Information about registration for the 2024-2025 school year will be sent out soon. Questions? Contact Katherine Vance, Kraft Associate of Youth Programs: Katherine.Vance@YMCATriangle.org.

School Tours
I will begin holding regular school tours at the end of February.   A sign-up will be sent out in the next family message, and also be available on the Woods Creek Website.  I look forward to showing you our beautiful school!
