MAGICAL MOMENTS: Woods Creek Bulletin March 13, 2024

Parent Input Session -Next Week!

Mark your calendars! We would love to have all families participate in our Visioning Input Session on March 19th at 6:00 PM in the Woods Creek Media Center. Your input is invaluable as we shape the vision and direction of our school.


This is an opportunity for you to share what you value most and what you would like to see at Woods Creek Elementary. Your ideas and insights will help us create a nurturing and inclusive learning environment that meets the needs of all our students.


We encourage all parents to attend and be a part of this important conversation. Your voices matter, and together, we can lay the foundation for a successful journey ahead.


If you are unable to attend please share your input with us HERE!   We want to make sure all families have a voice in shaping the future of Woods Creek Elementary.

Track Assignments:

The process of assigning tracks is happening now!  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.  Family input on the benefits of each track can be found at Year Round Track Highlights


Track Request Form:



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
