Ms. Trish Cook
Principal

Mrs. Cook is no stranger to Cabarrus County Schools, as she grew up in Concord and graduated from Northwest Cabarrus High School. In 1995, she began working with CCS as a middle and high school Spanish and ESL teacher and as an assistant principal for instruction at the elementary level. The past two years, Mrs. Cook worked for the NC Department of Public Instruction as a regional behavior support consultant serving  the public schools in the 12 counties in our region. Her passion and love of working with students brought her back to CCS and to Winecoff Elementary. Creating and maintaining a safe, positive environment where all students can excel academically and behaviorally is her top priority. Mrs. Cook is excited to be a part of the Winecoff School Family and is looking forward to getting to know each and every one of the special members that make this school great place to be!
