Students Earn Principal-of-the-Day Honor!

Students who earned 250 A.R. points to qualify for Principal of the Day.  We are not allowed to post a student's name, so, going from left to right, student #1 and student #3 earned the principal position and the other two students were their guests.  We are very proud of our students' accomplishments!

The Woodcrest PTA spent the whole week making us feel appreciated!

Thank you, PTA!

Parents:  in order for the transition into the new school year to go as smoothly as possible for your child, we are asking that you wait 3 weeks after school begins before visiting our campus during our lunch times or breakfast.  We will be implementing new procedures, routines, and schedules that will require us to focus on those areas until everyone understands what will be expected of them.  The sooner everyone understands our routines, the sooner we can have an optimum environment for everyone.

Additionally, for visitors planning to visit our campus for lunch for the first time, please be aware that our cafeteria tables have attached benches, not chairs.

Through the years, we have observed time, and time again, that a student’s separation anxiety usually dramatically starts decreasing the moment the student understands that the parent has left the campus and that this will be the normal routine.  Unfortunately, the transition into being a happy and well-adjusted student on our campus cannot begin to evolve without this necessary step, so we are asking you to trust your precious child to our care and allow us to do what we have been trained to do to help him or her to have a good beginning each day.  We are firmly committed to helping each child feel safe and confident during this time, so you can be certain we have put that as a priority.  Thank you for helping us to help your child understand that school is a happy, fun place to be and that leaving mom and/or dad to come here is a normal part of his or her life.


Port Neches-Groves Independent School District is committed to excellence in education. The combined efforts of the staff, students, parents, and community will provide a learning environment that ensures opportunities for all students to pursue lifelong learning and responsible, productive citizenship.
  The mission of Woodcrest Elementary is to provide a quality educational program in an environment that is conducive to learning. We believe that all children can learn. To accomplish this, we offer a variety of school programs to encourage the development of each student to his or her highest potential.

Woodcrest Loves Our PTA!
We are blessed at Woodcrest Elementary to have such a dedicated, hard-working, enthusiastic PTA. Without their hard work on fundraisers throughout the year, we would not have all the extraordinary resources we have for our students. These resources greatly enhance our ability to provide our students with every opportunity to excel academically... and have fun learning while they do.

We could never thank our PTA enough for making us feel so appreciated and for making our students feel so special.  If you see a PTA volunteer, please let them know you appreciate all they do--they deserve it!



Update for the IXL information below:  To log in your child in IXL, go to www.ixl.com and enter your child's cafeteria number as their user name and "ndn" as the password.  If that log-in is not successful, add a "b" to the end of their cafeteria number (this extra letter was necessary for some students when their number was already being used as a user name in the IXL system).  If you are still unsuccessful logging in, please contact your child's teacher to report the issue.

Box Tops 

Your collecting box tops can make a difference by funding wonderful resources for our students!  We receive 10 cents for every box top. With your help, we can collect hundreds of dollars for our school by simply turning in box tops from products you probably already have at your home or will be buying anyway.  Please do not throw those valuable box tops in your trash when we can use them!

The top student collector for each six week period will receive a prize and a certificate will be presented to them during the Woodcrest morning announcements (via our TV system). At the end of the school year, the top class collector will receive a Cookie Company party. We will collect box tops the entire year, with prize deadlines being on report card Fridays for each 6-week-period.

Before you turn in your box tops, please check the expiration date, and help us by clipping the box top on its dotted lines. Place the box tops in a baggie. Then, on the baggie, write your child’s full name, the name of the class teacher, and the number of box tops in the bag. This will help us very, very much!
Please encourage your neighbors, your co-workers, and the student’s grandparents to save these box tops for us instead of just throwing them away! We are counting on you to help with school projects and wish lists that help us provide the best possible resources for our campus!
We appreciate all you do for Woodcrest!
