New student enrollment dates are as follows:
· July 27, 28 and 31 for students in grades 9 through 12. Registration will be at Waynesville High School for these grades only. July 27 is recommended for 9th & 12th grade students. July 28 is recommended for 9th & 11th grade students. July 31 is recommended for 9th and 10th grade students.
· Aug. 2, 3 and 4 for elementary (K-5), 6th grade (6th Grade Center) and middle school (7th and 8th at Waynesville Middle School) students. Parents should go to their child's school to register. For elementary school attendance areas, please go to https://www.waynesville.k12.mo.us/…/2017-2018%20Enrollment%….
New students to the Waynesville R-VI School District may pre-enroll online by clicking on the “Online Enrollment” link across the top of the district’s main webpage at www.waynesville.k12.mo.us. New students may pre-register for the 2017-18 school year by following the steps on the webpage.
All children from the same family should register under one login account.
This new online enrollment application saves time and paperwork, but it does not completely replace the need to go to the building to complete the registration process. After completing the online enrollment application, the student’s birth certificate (kindergarten and 1st grade), immunization record and previous school records, along with all other required documents/records for enrollment, as stated on the District Enrollment Information Brochure, will need to be taken to the school by the parent/guardian to complete the enrollment process. When you provide the needed documents to the school, make the school aware you have completed the enrollment application online.
If your student was enrolled in the Waynesville R-VI School District during the 2016-17 School Year and will be returning in the fall, your child will automatically be enrolled for the next school year.
Enrollment will be from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Waynesville achieves record APR score of 97.5%
The Waynesville R-VI School District achieved a record 97.5% on the State of Missouri’s Annual Performance Report – the highest in the school’s history and the fourth consecutive year of measured academic growth for the district’s students.
“We are very, very proud of our students, teachers and administrators,” said Dr. LeRoy Fulmer, president of the Waynesville R-VI Board of Education.
Waynesville’s APR score has increased 15.4% over the past four years – from 82.1% in 2013 to 92.9% in 2014 to 96.8% in 2015 to 97.5% in 2016.
“As a board, we are extremely excited about the significant improvements that the district has achieved over the last few years and we know where the credit goes, it goes to our teachers and administrators for doing all the hard work it takes to prepare our students,” Fulmer said. “Scores don’t improve because you want them to improve; they improve because you work diligently every single day. These scores are indicative of a staff and of an administration that has a goal in mind and that goal is to have the best possible education for our students.”
Waynesville’s combination of a diverse, high military student population with outstanding scores has garnered national attention.
“Our recent gain is a reflection on the great staff we have in the Waynesville R-VI School District and the students we serve. In addition, this can’t be done without a supportive community,” said Dr. Brian Henry, superintendent. “Our success is truly defined by our mission of ‘educating individual students for 21st Century challenges.’ Our teachers have focused on taking individual students where they are and finding effective teaching strategies to get students where we want them to be. Our overall APR increases directly reflect the cumulative success of one student at a time making individual advances.”
With further military reductions potentially looming on the horizon, the record APR score’s timing is ideal.
“Education is a top priority when the Army looks at where to put its resources,” Henry said. “With these scores and the upcoming building of a much-needed academic wing on our middle school, we will position our schools in the best possible light for any future rounds of BRAC (Defense Base Realignment and Closure Commission).”
Students are administered MAP and EOC tests each spring. Based on its student scores, a district receives a percentage of points in the state’s MSIP 5 accountability requirements, which include specific learning growth targets for students in these areas:
Academic Achievement: 100%
Subgroup Achievement: 82.1%
College and Career Ready: 96.7%
Graduation Rate: 100%
The subgroup includes special education, low-income, minority groups and English Language Learners.
“Subgroup achievement will continue to be a focus this year with an emphasis on the district’s top teachers sharing best practices for effective teaching and differentiation strategies,” said Dr. Trish Adkins, assistant superintendent of instructional services. “We are also implementing more problem-based learning activities that engage students in a higher level of thinking to better prepare them for the real world.”
The Waynesville R-VI School District received all of the points possible in all four academic areas: English language arts, math, social studies and science – based on individual students moving closer to the 2020 targets.
“Our staff hears me say this all the time, but this is a great day to be a Tiger,” Henry said.
Waynesville’s 4-year graduation rate has increased to 93.9%. The state’s graduation rate is 88% and the national graduation rate is 83.2%.
“The community is the real winner when a student graduates because it opens doors for a student to get a better paying job and to become a contributing member of society,” Henry said. “We could easily sit back and say a 94% graduation rate is good enough because it’s well above state and national standards, but instead we have opened an alternative school with a goal of helping even more students succeed.”
“That’s what makes Waynesville Schools unique,” Henry said. “In the end, it’s about providing the opportunity for an individual who may just need a little more help to succeed, and we want to be able to do that.”
Dear Families of the Waynesville R-VI 6thGrade Center,
On behalf of the staff at the Waynesville 6th Grade Center, it is my pleasure to welcome you to a new and exciting school year. Let me also take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Jamie Goforth, and I am honored to be starting my first year as principal of the Waynesville 6th Grade Center. Prior to becoming the principal of the 6th Grade Center, I taught fifth grade and served as assistant principal of a fourth and fifth grade building in the Lebanon School District. I am excited to be working with sixth grade students as they begin their journey into middle school. I have been married to my husband, Jamie for 15 years and we have one son Jackson who is 11.
I realize that as a parent of a student who is transitioning to a new school setting, it is important to know where to get information necessary to help ensure a smooth beginning to the school year. My goal is to aid in that process by providing the information below.
Your Child’s Teaching Team:
6th grade students ride the bus with the secondary students. Transportation stops may be viewed on the district website: www.waynesville.k12.mo.us/Page/3170
The east (front) parking lot will serve as the drop-off and pick-up area for students who are transported by car. Please do not drop off your child before 7:00 a.m. Buses will load and unload in the west (back) parking lot.
6th grade students’ school day will be from 7:30 a.m. to 2:35 p.m. Breakfast (at no charge to the student) will be served each morning from 7:00 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. Students have two options for lunch: a hot lunch or a trip through the salad bar. Either option is $2.00. If your child qualifies for a reduced fee, it will be .40 cents. Students will be placed in homerooms and travel as a class throughout the day. It is exciting that our technology at the Sixth Grade Center will be a ratio of 2:1.
In an effort to work toward our school’s mission of creating 21st Century Leaders, every student will be part of a student leadership group that focuses on running some part of the school. All teachers will be using the PBL (Problem/Project Based Learning) model of instruction that allows students to learn and apply ELA, math, science, and social studies standards by solving real-world problems. This model of instruction is conducive to building life-long learners through the use of problem-solving, critical thinking, communicating effectively, and working collaboratively.
The dress code for Waynesville 6th Grade Center mirrors that of Waynesville Middle School. A copy of the dress code can be found in the Waynesville 6th Grade Center Handbook at https://www.waynesville.k12.mo.us/Page/3703
Meet the Teacher Night for the 6thGrade Center will be held on August 15, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. The goal of this evening will be to provide necessary information to parents and students for a smooth transition into the new school setting.
Again, I want to welcome you to what we hope will be a great school year. Please do not hesitate to call or email me if I can assist you in any way. I look forward to seeing each of you at Meet the Teacher Night, if not before. Best wishes to you and your family.
