    first day of school at Wood


    174 days! We did it! 

    On Aug. 24, 2020, Waynesville R-VI students entered the seated classroom (virtual was an option for students as well) and today -- 174 days later -- students attended their last day of the 2020-21 School Year. Despite the pandemic, all students were able to attend the seated classroom all days, except for a limited number at Waynesville Middle School and Waynesville High School when COVID cases resulted in students temporarily being online. Thank you to all the students, parents, bus drivers, teachers, nurses, custodians, staff members and community members who made this possible. We did it! 


    Summer School 

    Summer School will be held June 3-30. In the Waynesville R-VI School District, summer school students attend the grade they will be attending in the fall.

    Booster Club volunteers needed

    Do you love high school sports? Could you spare about 5 hours a month to help student athletes? If so, the Waynesville Tiger Athletic Booster Club is looking for volunteers! 

    The club is financially healthy, but would like to add more volunteers to help with:

    -  Organizing, coordinating and promoting events

    -  Recognizing student-athletes

    -  Providing scholarships to student-athletes

    -  Recognizing those who support the program

    -  Liaison to a single sport

    -  Increasing community spirit and adding opportunities for student-athletes

    Members may be retirees, parents, former athletes, community members, etc.; members do not have to have a student enrolled in athletics.

    If you are interested in learning more about the Waynesville Tiger Athletic Booster Club, please call Cory Ace at 573-842-2450.
