Be a Spartan S.T.A.R.
(Standing Together – Acting Responsibly)

Waynesville Elementary School is committed to creating a positive environment for all students. Each month your child will have the opportunity to be chosen as a Spartan Star. To be a STAR the students must follow the school’s overarching rules - be ready, be respectful, be responsible, and be safe. The other component of being a star is being a buddy….not a bully! If chosen as a STAR, your child will have their picture taken with other students from their grade level and hung on our building Spartan Star bulletin board. They will also be given a certificate of recognition signed by the building principal and given a Spartan Star bracelet. In addition, they will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a Spartan T-Shirt.


Rather than spending time focusing on the negativity of bullying, we want to focus on the positive! We have had fewer reported bullying incidences this year due to the positive environment this program has created. We are planning an elementary school Spirit Week for the week of December 15th. We hope you will make a great effort, along with us, to encourage your child to participate in the school’s Spirit Week Activities listed below. In addition, we hope you will take the opportunity to talk to your child about the importance of them being kind to others. Let’s work together to encourage our students to be SPARTAN STARS!
