Campus Roster 2017-2018

A special request for visitors to our campus

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 three 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.
School Supplies for 2017 - 2018

Bell Times 2017-2018
Bell Times

Please note these times the Woodcrest bell will ring or daily events begin:

7:20 School opens and the cafeteria begins serving breakfast until 7:40
7:40 A.M. Students are dismissed from the gym or breakfast to go to class
7:50 A.M. Tardy bell rings (late arrivals must check in to the office)
3:00 P.M. Dismissal bell rings

When the morning bell rings at 7:20 and the school's doors are opened, all students are to report to the cafeteria.  Students who are not eating breakfast will sit at a designated table in the cafeteria until the teacher who has morning duty arrives to take them to the gym. 

If everyone has already left for the gym when your child arrives, he or she is to report directly to the gym.  Students who are eating breakfast are to put their back packs on a designated table and then sit at the table closest to the serving line.  A teacher on duty will announce when it is time to get in line.  If your child will be eating breakfast at school, please get your child to school in time to allow him or her to have adequate time to eat breakfast.

Breakfast 2017-2018

If your child intends to eat breakfast at school, it is very important that he or she arrive as close to 7:30 as possible to avoid being tardy to class. Any child who is late to class will most likely miss important announcements. Additionally, having students who are tardy affects the whole class when the teacher is required to adjust her schedule. Please help your child’s class to have a good day by making sure your child arrives on time.

Lunch & Lunch Duty Schedule 2017-2018
Lunch Schedules


From time to time, we will have special activities and/or events, holidays, etc. that will affect our lunch schedule and change the times listed above.  If that should happen, notices will be sent home by your child's teacher.

Table Assignments 2017-2018
Cafeteria Table Assignments
When you enter the cafeteria facing toward the serving area entrances, the tables are assigned as stated below.  If you still cannot locate your child's table, please ask the teacher or custodian on duty for assistance.  

Please note that, from time to time, a lunch schedule may change due to special activities on our campus.

Please remember--no guests the first three weeks of school in order that we may get our students into the most efficient and productive routines.  Thank you for your cooperation!
Dress Code 2017-2018
Dress Code
In establishing appropriate standards of school dress, it is not the intention of the school district to attempt to regulate fashion or to determine what is or is not in style, but to encourage good grooming in students. It is important that everyone continue to recognize that school is a more formal experience and the type of apparel worn should reflect that fact. Clothing should be neat and clean at all times. Tattered, frayed, or unnecessarily patched clothing is not acceptable. All clothing must be hemmed. Tattoos must not be visible.
LENGTH OF SHORTS/SKIRTS:Shorts and skirts shall be mid-thigh or longer in length. (Measured by when the longest finger of the hand touches thigh when in a standing position with arms and hands extended by the side)
SHORTS: No spandex, lycra, P.E. or bicycling shorts may be worn as outside garments at any time. Shorts must be hemmed.
BAGGY PANTS/SHORTS: Pants and shorts must be worn at the waistline. Garments must fit at the waist.
DRESS LENGTH & STYLE: Tops with large open armholes, open back, and/or bare shoulders are not allowed. Dresses that are cut low in the front should not be worn to school. Dresses that are transparent to the point that undergarments can be seen through the clothing will not be allowed. Dresses should reach mid-thigh or lower. 
 [Woodcrest suggested appropriate additional guidelines—please have your elementary student wear shorts under any skirt or dress.]
SHIRTS: Length of shirts may not exceed the length of shorts. Shirts or other clothing, which displays or implies (printed or pictured) obscene or distasteful slogans or advertises tobacco products, drugs, or alcoholic beverages, may not be worn. Undershirts worn as outer-garments----torso, tank, or muscle shirts will not be permitted. Any type of blouse that has extremely small shoulder straps will not be permitted. Garments with bare midriffs may not be worn.
HATS & CAPS: Hats and caps are not allowed on campus unless worn as part of a school organization uniform or as part of a special activity approved by the administration.
SHOES: All students must wear shoes. Thongs, flip-flops or shower shoes must not be worn to school. Shoes with cleats or rollers are not allowed in the building.
HAIRSTYLES: Extreme hairstyles will not be permitted. Hair must be neat, trimmed and well groomed.
FACIAL HAIR: No beards or goatees shall be allowed. Sideburns may not extend below the bottom of the ear. Mustaches and sideburns must be neatly trimmed. No facial hair shall be allowed on middle school students.
EARRINGS: Boys cannot wear earrings. Girls may wear earrings in ears only. Students may not wear earrings, studs, etc. in any pierced body area other than girls may wear earrings in pierced ears.
   *Any dress/grooming/appearance standard not described in the dress code above and observed on a student, that is judged by the campus principal or his/her designee to be disruptive, unsafe, or inappropriate for the school setting may be addressed as a violation of the dress code.

Campus Safety: Our Doors 2017-2018
 Campus Safety

Mission Statements 2017-2018

Mission Statements
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.

PTA 2017-2018
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.

© 2001-2003 Hemera Technologies, Inc. and its licensors.  All rights reserved.
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!

Box Tops 2017-2018
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!
