National Diabetes month is observed every November to draw attention to diabetes and its effects on millions of Americans.   Education and Support: Everyone Has a Role, What’s Yours? The 2015 theme highlights the need for ongoing diabetes education and support among people with diabetes and those who care for them.  On November 20, 2015 Wayne Local participated in its second annual "blue out".  Shirts were sold and $1,000 was raised that will be donated to JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).  Every year in the United States children are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes; JDRF is on the verge of life changing breakthroughs that will fundamentally improve the way people live with type 1 diabetes.  In the picture Cris Peterson from the local JDRF branch is being presented a check from some of our students.  Thank you to school nurse Jen Royalty for taking the lead on this important local project.

Players will learn a ball handling and shooting routine that will be performed during halftime of a boys’ varsity basketball game. We ask that players attend at least two sessions to perform. All players will receive a Spartan Basketball Shirt. Little Dribblers is open to both boys and girls. For more infromation click the link below.

Four months of rehearsals culminated in the Waynesville Spartan Marching Band's OMEA State Marching Band Finals performance this past Sunday at the University of Dayton's Welcome Stadium. The band qualified to perform at this event at their final local contest of the season, being one of only 19 Class C bands to qualify of the 130 total bands who competed over two weekends at OMEA State Finals. When the band took to the field, it was to overwhelming crowd support, and the Marching Spartans rose to the occasion, performing their best show of the season!
