• School board members recognized for service

        School Board Recognition Week will officially be held Jan. 25-31. The goal of the week, which is sponsored by the Missouri School Boards’ Association, is to build awareness and understanding of the important function an elected board of education plays in communities and schools.  
        The Waynesville R-VI Board of Education members are Dr. LeRoy Fulmer, president; Dorsey Newcomb, vice president; Nathan Purdome, treasurer; Herman Blau, secretary; and members Mike Keeling, Butch O’Riley and Lisa Schwandt.
        “Our board members put student learning first and foremost,” says Dr. Brian Henry, superintendent. “They each bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the board, represent our local community and citizens and play an important role in the education of Waynesville’s students.”

Welcome to the Waynesville R-VI School District, serving the communities of Waynesville, St. Robert and Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.

From pre-school for children with special needs and developmental concerns to dual credit and AP college courses at the high school, Waynesville Schools offer a variety of programs to meet the academic needs of students at all levels. As a result, our students routinely perform above average on state and national tests.

Waynesville teachers embrace the Professional Learning Community model and classes begin late each Wednesday to allow teachers to collaborate on best practices.    

Beyond their common core subject material and 21st century skills, students learn to apply school-wide positive behavior support strategies, model character words and embrace good habits for successful daily living. Understanding the value of individual responsibility is emphasized, along with service to others.

Parents also are asked to maintain high expectations for their children, and none is more important than attendance. Every healthy child should be at school every day. To help your family plan upcoming vacations and holidays, the 2014-15 School Year  is here.
