    Woods Creek  


    Woods Creek opened its doors in August of 1997 to 625 students. Currently, the school houses approximately 575 students from general education classrooms and the Communication Development Program (CDP). The Woods Creek staff consists of 85 amazing teachers, paraprofessionals, administrative assistants, custodians and supervisors.



    Current D47 Board of Education member Dr. Betsy Les was Woods Creek's first principal. The school's positive culture that began early on under her leadership continues to flourish today.


    When Woods Creek first opened, students came from Indian Prairie, Canterbury, North and West. With the opening of Glacier Ridge School in 2001, Woods Creek experienced its only boundary change. Pockets of students from West and Canterbury School were switched to Woods Creek and approximately 250 Woods Creek students were shifted to Glacier Ridge. In addition, the new subdivisions of Willows Edge, Cheswick Place and Summit Glen were added to the school's boundaries. Mrs. Pam White joined the administrative team as assistant principal in the fall of 2010 when Dr. Les retired and Mrs. Marks became principal. In the fall of 2014, Mrs. Melissa LaShelle became assistant principal.
