ATTENTION NEW STUDENTS:
New students to the Waynesville R-VI School District may enroll online at https://www.waynesville.k12.mo.us/site/Default.aspx?PageID=7016 or 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 enrolling 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 is currently enrolled in the district and will be returning in the fall, your child will automatically be enrolled for the next school year.
District Breaks Ground on WMDS Addition
A groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday, May 11, 2017, for Phase 1 of the Waynesville Middle School’s Remodeling Project’s nearly 120,000 square feet of space.
Speaking at the event were Dr. Brian Henry, superintendent; Dr. George Lauritson, mayor of St. Robert; Isabella Amodio, WMDS student government president; and Butch O’Riley, school board president. The JROTC Color Guard, the WMDS Advanced Choir and Band participated as well.
“Today we combine the history of this building with the innovations of the future,” Amodio said. “The current building has shaped the pathway to many lives, including my own. It has given each and every student who has passed through this building a foundation for an outstanding future. It is more than just a building dedicated to learning to the thousands who have crossed the doorway. It has been a place of laughter, challenges, incredible memories, competitions, and so much more. … To our School Board Members, thank you for believing in us and voting to move forward with construction. While we may sometimes drive our parents a little crazy, we are good kids who really just want to grow up and make the world a better place.”
Henry explained the academic wing’s configuration to the crowd: The construction of the new two-story academic wing will allow four teams per grade level to occupy each floor. Designed to accommodate a total of 960 students, the academic wing will incorporate:
– Core classrooms for Language Arts, Math and Social Studies
– 4 dedicated STEM Science Classrooms / Laboratories and
– 12 supporting classrooms on each level.
“In addition, the academic wing will also include dedicated classrooms for special education, reading assistance, foreign language, computer technology and health,” Henry said. “Each level will also include an extended learning center that will be used as a flexible instructional area that will promote student collaboration and the development of long-term projects.”
“As a community, we are very fortunate to witness the building of this Phase 1, which will provide economic dividends to the region,” Lauritson said. “Of course, it’s a bonus that Federal B-2 Heavily Impacted Aid, which many of us worked to preserve, will fund this construction project. Thank you for investing in our community and most importantly, our students – our future.”
O’Riley shared that six of the current seven school board members went to school in the current building and three served as teachers and/or administrators, noting that they know how much this facility is needed.
“Today, my fellow board members and I are especially excited to provide this opportunity for our students,”
O’Riley said. “Beyond the classrooms and laboratories, students will have a new library/media center and more than 5,500 square feet for enjoying lunch in their new facility and our cooks, who are very important to our school, will have more space to prepare and serve meals.”
The dignitaries attending and who participated in the groundbreaking ceremony were Butch O’Riley, school board president; Paul Shultz II, school board vice president; Dr. LeRoy Fulmer, school board secretary; Charles Quinn, school board treasurer; and school board members Mike Keeling, Andy Anderson and Dan Deering; Michele Sumter, middle school head principal; Cory Ace and Mr. Robert Crabtree, assistant middle school principals; Don Hussman and Dwight Dickinson of Dickinson Hussman Architects, the architects for the project; Shawn Shulte of Curtiss-Manes-Schulte Inc., the contractor for the project and city officials Mike France, City of Waynesville mayor pro tem; and Dr. George Lauritson, City of St. Robert mayor; and Fort Leonard Wood representative, Col. Tracy Lanier, FLW garrison commander.
