  • Students at Woodcrest are learning to be successful Colts by building good character traits. So far this year, students have learned about these character traits:
    If Success is our great goal, You must practice SELF-CONTROL. Use common sense in all you do. Controlling emotions is helpful too. I knew a fish who took the bait. Good judgment gone, the hook he ate. My friend was fried upon the grill. With SELF-CONTROL he'd be here still.
    My friends are like a family. I share with them. They share with me# Respect your friends in all you do, and they will give back respect to you. You'll find SUCCESS if this you learn: The gift of FRIENDSHIP must be earned. To make a friend, I do believe, that you, yourself, a friend must be.
    SUCCESS isn't having trophies or toys. It isn't a medal or friends of your choice. What is SUCCESS? That's easy to see. It's trying to be the best you can be! Don't worry what others may have or might say. When trying your best, SUCCESS comes your way.
    The Woodcrest pyramid is based upon Coach John Wooden's, coach at UCLA, book titled Success, Inch and Miles: The Journey to Success which speaks to the greatness within all of us.

  • What would most help all students to be successful?

    In the coming weeks, you will be asked to give your thoughts on this question: “What would most help all students in RUSD to be successful?” We need to hear from you as our district begins putting together its Local Control and Accountability Plan. Districts throughout California are crafting these plans, which signal a significant change from the state-controlled “one size fits all” educational plans of the past to a more locally-minded plan that specifically addresses the needs of our students here in Riverside. Make sure to have your voice heard! Come of one of the community meetings, included one right here at our school. You can find a full list of meeting dates and times at: www.successforstudents.org. You also can share your ideas at this website.

  • King Choir at Woodcrest

    Students and Faculty were given a real treat when the choir from Martin Luther King High School came out before the break and sang for them. They all enjoyed listening to the musical talents of such an amazing group of teenagers. Two of the staff members were especially proud since both of their daughters are in the choir and were among those that sang. The students could not stop talking about the singing as the day went on.

  • Lizzy Sider Sings at Woodcrest

    All of the kids loved having Lizzy Sider come to our school, performing her beautiful song, Butterfly. She carried with her the message that no one should ever have the power to make you have a bad day.

  • Mrs. Anderson's Amazing Class!

    On Thursday, November 7, 2013, the first grade students in Mrs. Theresa Anderson’s class at Woodcrest reached their goal of 1,000 AR quizzes passed!!! They concluded the day with 1,022. All 29 students in Mrs. Anderson’s class are participating on AR this year. They accomplished the 1,000 goal mark in just less than 10 weeks! A group of parents surprised the class with frog cupcakes to celebrate the reading achievement and the principal, Mrs. Ekman, awarded each student with a spirit stick with the words, “My Principal is Proud of Me!” The students have set a new goal for the second trimester. They want to pass 1,055 for a total of 2,055 AR quizzes. Mrs. Ekman is looking forward to seeing how many quizzes they pass by June!
