GOOD NEWS FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT’S OFFICE

Join the Conversation   The Wayne Local Schools Board of Education and Administration has embarked in a process to assess and develop a master facilities plan that addresses physical deficiencies, redefines and modernizes our educational facilities.  We completed four (4) community forums designed to educate and elicit feedback on potential options that range from short-term components replacement, building renovations to full building replacement.  The master plan becomes an intentional way to map the future of our facilities.  The public feedback gathered during the forums will be embedded in our master facilities plan.   Forum Feedback:

  • Participants agree that something needs to be done to address our current facility issues.
  • There is not a “zero-cost” option with our current facilities.
  • Participants prefer that all of our school buildings remain here on the Waynesville campus instead of looking to acquire land.
  • The size and price tag of the task to upgrade and modernize our facilities requires we use a “segmented approach” that prioritizes and establishes an order of implementation to be determined.
  • In a “segmented approach;” participants agree that Waynesville Elementary should be addressed first.
  • After viewing the professional findings and recommendations from the Ohio School Facilities Commission’s assessment of Waynesville Elementary; participants favor replacing the elementary with a new building.
  • Participants support saving or incorporating historical elements of the 1915 building into new construction
  • In order to maximize square footage and programming; participants support the District potentially moving the 6th grade back to the elementary in a new building solution.

By closely assessing our current facilities, gaining input from the community and incorporating assistance from the Ohio School Facilities Commission and other professional entities our facility solutions will shape the future of education in Waynesville for generations to come.  This is going to be an intense process; we will continue to update our school community on the progress of our master facilities plan, its contents and ultimately the decisions made as we move forward.   Yours in Education, Pat Dubbs, Superintendent of Schools

FOURTH GRADE UPDATE!   Happy New Year! The fourth grade students have been getting back in their routines and working very hard in the New Year. In language arts with Mrs. Garafolo we have been diving into learning all about persuasive writing and how to create and structure a persuasive writing piece. We have also been working on learning the different types of text structure and how each serve a specific purpose to reading and understanding. Newsela, a nonfiction based reading program, is being utilized in the classroom for independent practice and reteaching of skills taught in the classroom. The students enjoy using this program as it involves technology and earning rewards based on their performance on the short quizzes that are attached to the reading passages. Switching gears, in Mrs. Rasey’s math class we have been learning about fractions. The students have learned how to add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators, how to change an improper fraction to a mixed number, and how to change a mixed number back to an improper fraction. The students have been working very hard throughout this unit. As we wrap up the unit this week, students will begin digging into learning all about decimals.   Friendly Reminders: Reading 20 minutes nightly and working on basic multiplication facts tremendously increases your child’s ability to be successful in the classroom setting!   Ashten Swank aswank@wayne-local.com  

7TH GRADE SCIENCE EXPLORES BIOGEOCHEMICAL CYCLES, GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE, AND THE ATMOSPHERE   After spending the first semester studying matter and energy, we will now begin investigating how matter and energy are used, changed, and recycled here on Earth.  We started this week exploring the water cycle.  Along with learning the processes of the water cycle, we will experiment with different types of sediment to determine which ones are the most porous and permeable.  We will also discuss aquifers and focus on the movement of runoff and groundwater.  Often, these processes of the water cycle can pick up contaminants and pollution that get into our water supply, so we will examine these potential problems.     The water cycle is one of three biogeochemical cycles that we will study this year.  Later this quarter, we will also explore the processes of the carbon cycle and the nitrogen cycle.  Both of these cycles move important nutrients around Earth for living organisms to use.  These two cycles also have a big impact on the gases in our atmosphere.  By changing the balance in these cycles, human activities may be contributing to global climate change, which will be a topic of discussion for our class during that unit.   In addition to learning about how biogeochemical cycles move key nutrients, we will also investigate how differences in energy and composition drive global atmospheric and ocean currents.  These currents circulate around the world and determine climate patterns.  For example, global winds play a big role in determining whether a land mass will be a tropical rain forest or a desert.  By studying these concepts, 7th graders will start to get a picture of how these processes affect Earth and how humans are influencing these processes.   Kelley Bricker 7th Grade Science Teacher kbricker@wayne-local.com MRS. KEETON -

THIRD GRADE MATH   Third Grade Math students have finished up units on multiplication and division and are now using the four math operations to solve one and two step story problems.  This tends to be difficult when students have to understand what operations to use before solving the problems.   Some of our students are in deep competition with our online program First in Math.  This online program helps increase student’s problem solving, critical thinking, and basic math skills in a fun way.  Students are able to access this program at school as well as at home.  I’d like to give a BIG shout out to the following top third graders for earning the most points or stickers at this point in the school year.  

Top 25 Third Graders for Waynesville Elementary Rachel Finegan, , Evelyn Malcolm,  Grace Royalty, Madeline Kolaczkowski, Lori Baker, Katie Berrey, Abby Buck,  Bella Bradley, Maggie Stephenson, Addison Russell, Ian Byerly, Drew Martini, Tate Manley, Izzy Hardin, Zevin Sesslar, Brayden Green, Andrew Stupp, Raven Pendergraff, Ashlyn Callahan, Blake Suittor, Megan Squire , Abby Baker, Sylvia Moffitt, Taylor Johnson, and Kate Matt.   Shout out to Rachel Finegan who is 10th in First in Math for the 3rd Grade in the State of Ohio!  Rachel has also passed all of her timed multiplication facts in class! Congratulations Rachel!    Several students have had the opportunity to work on

Enrichment Research Projects above and beyond our normal curriculum.  Students are comparing and researching such things as the calories of Kid’s Meals for Fast Food Restaurants, the prices for different kinds of pets, and calculating the differences between the heights of famous buildings.  The students love these projects, and display their findings in some type of graph or chart.  These research projects are perfect for practicing math skills and integrating technology.    All students are encouraged to practice their math facts each evening.  This only benefits them when working on our problem solving skills and daily work in class.   Mrs. Keeton skeeton@wayne-local.com PROJECT EXCELLENCE

ACT –SAT PREP OPPORTUNITIES Waynesville High School JUNIORS are scheduled to take the ACT college admissions test on April 19, 2017 at WHS, within the school day, free of charge.  This is a new Ohio law this creates great opportunity and can cut the cost of college entrance in half to a third of what it was previously.  To help prepare the Juniors for this test, WHS has implemented an ACT Review within the school day during the ETEH time frame.  However, if you feel your child could use extra prep, WHS recommends looking into the LEAProgram.  http://www.leaprogram.com/.   The LEAP (Learning Environment & Assistance Program) is another avenue to help your child prepare for the ACT.    The LEAProgram assists students to help meet their individual goals. There are many different categories to investigate, however the ACT prep session is highly recommended.  There are currently sessions available in Mason, Ohio.  The course consists of four – 2 hour strategy sessions: English, Mathematics, Reading/Science and Essay taught by top-notch math and English teachers. Each strategy session includes introduction to the ACT and SAT tests, explanation of strategies for particular questions, group practice of strategies, independent practice and question/answer time. The class also includes the administration of a three-hour multiple choice actual ACT test that is scored and students can keep for review. At the conclusion of the course, students will have completed at least 3 full ACT's and 1 SAT. Students must purchase The Official ACT Prep Guide.   Note that the fourth of the five classes will be 4 hours in length to allow for a full-length timed ACT administration. This is an actual ACT that is scored and students get to keep for further review.  All courses limited to 18 students, but they offer several opportunities each time to accommodate many students and a variety of scheduling needs.  It would be important to check dates for availability. Sessions are filling up quickly.  For more information go to http://www.leaprogram.com/registration/free-act-practice-test.php   or e-mail info@leaprogram.com Abby Shinkle Academic Advisor/ Career Rep. ashinkle@wayne-local.com

Lady Spartans Channel 2 Operation Basketball Team of the Week!  

JV Girls Basketball Beats Bellbrook, Loses Close Game to Oakwood Last Saturday, the Lady Spartans beat Bellbrook’s freshman team 34-25 in a match-up at home.  Despite a slow start to the game, Waynesville rallied to retake the lead in the second quarter, which they maintained until the end of the game.  The team was led in scoring by Carli Brown and Kenzie Purkey, who each scored 9 points.  Victoria Wheeland contributed 6 points and 9 rebounds.  Kennedy Deters scored 5 points and had 5 rebounds.  Lynzie Hartshorn scored 3 points and had 3 assists.  Kenna Harvey and Leianna Flowers each scored 1 point, and Flowers pulled down 7 rebounds.  Devin Phillips had 3 rebounds and 1 assist.  Kara Jenkins contributed solid minutes on the floor to help the Spartans to victory.   Thursday night, the JV lost a hard-fought game to Oakwood 33-35.  Unable to convert on some early baskets, the Lady Spartans fell behind early and worked the rest of the game to close the gap.  They came within 1 point during the last minute of the game but couldn’t get their shots to fall and had to put Oakwood on the foul line to regain the ball.  Carli Brown led the team in scoring with 9 points and 3 steals.  Victoria Wheeland scored 8 points, and Kenzie Purkey scored 7 points.  Kenna Harvey contributed 4 points and 6 steals.  Devin Phillips contributed 3 points and had 4 assists.  Leianna Flowers scored 2 points and pulled down 9 rebounds.  Kennedy Deters also controlled the boards pulling down 5 rebounds.   The Lady Spartans look to get back to their winning ways with their game this Saturday against Preble Shawnee.  The JV starts at 4:30 followed by the varsity girls at 6 and the varsity boys at 7:30.  During the games, the Art Club will be selling student and staff made bowls of food as part of their Empty Bowls fundraiser.  All proceeds go to fighting hunger in our school district.

TRANSPORTATION SAFETY TIPS Regardless of weather conditions, students must be standing at the designated stop prior to the bus’ scheduled arrival.  

INFORMATION ABOUT SCHOOL CLOSING FOR INCLEMENT WEATHER   As we head into winter it is very important for parents to have back up plans in place for delays, early dismissals and closures.   We understand that our decision to open or close schools in bad weather has a big effect on families. We also understand that our students are better served by being in school. As always, our top priority is the safety of our students.  We will always try to make our decisions as early as possible.  Your child will feel safer if they know what they are to do in these situations.

BUS ROUTES For your convenience an alphabetical street name list with bus numbers is located on the Wayne Local website.

WELLNESS WC Combined Health District Newsletter – Jan 2016  

HEALTHY WEIGHT BASICS:  ENERGY BALANCE   Energy is another word for “calories.”  What you eat and drink is ENERGY IN.  What you burn through physical activity is ENERGY OUT.  Energy balance is the balance between ENERGY IN AND ENERGY OUT.  This balance is needed to maintain a healthy weight.  Other factors that affect a person’s weight include metabolism (the way your body converts food and oxygen into energy), genes, and the environment.  Changes in our environment that make it harder to do things that keep us healthy have a lot to do with our overall increase in weight over the past few decades.  For example:

  • We’re an in-the-car and sit-behind-a-desk society.For many of us-parents and children alike-daily life doesn’t involve a lot of physical activity and exercise.If we want to be active, we have to make an effort.
  • Food is everywhere, and so are messages telling us to eat and drink.We can get something to eat in places where it was never available before and going out to eat or getting carryout is easy.
  • Food portions at restaurants and at home are bigger than they used to be.

Becoming overweight doesn’t happen overnight.  It happens over time-when the energy we take in by eating is not in balance with the energy we burn from being active.  Think of it as balancing your “lifestyle budget.”  For example, if you know you and your family will be going to a party and may eat more high-calorie foods than normal, then you may wish to eat fewer calories for a few days before so that it balances out.  Or, you can increase your physical activity level for the few days before or after the party, so that you can burn off the extra energy.   Here’s another way of looking at energy balance in real life.  Eating just 150 calories more a day than you burn can lead to an extra 5 pounds over 6 months.  That’s a gain of 10 pounds a year.  If you don’t want this weight gain to happen, or you want to lose the extra weight, you can either reduce your ENERGY IN or increase your ENERGY OUT.  Doing both is the best way to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.   Here are some ways to cut 150 calories (ENERGY IN):

  • Drink water instead of a 12-ounce regular soda
  • Order a small serving of French fries instead of a medium, or order a salad with dressing on the side instead
  • Eat an egg-white omelet (with three eggs), instead of whole eggs
  • Use tuna canned in water (6-ounce can), instead of oil

Here are some ways to burn 150 calories (ENERGY OUT), in just 30 minutes (for a 150 pound person):

  • Shoot hoops
  • Walk two miles
  • Do yard work (gardening, raking leaves, etc.)
  • Go for a bike ride
  • Dance with your family or friends

GUIDELINES FOR KEEPING CHILDREN HOME FROM SCHOOL DUE TO ILLNESS   It is sometimes difficult to decide when and how long to keep an ill child home from school. The following guidelines represent the more common childhood illnesses.   CHICKEN POX: A skin rash consisting of small blisters, which leave scabs. A slight fever may or may not be present. There may be blisters and scabs all present at the same time. Your child should remain home until all blisters have scabbed over, usually 5-7 days after the appearance of the first crop of blisters. COMMON COLD: Irritated throat, watery discharge from the nose and eyes, sneezing, chills and general body discomfort. Your child should remain home if symptoms are serious enough to interfere with your child’s ability to learn. Medical care should be obtained if symptoms persist beyond 7-10 days, fever develops, or discharge becomes yellow to green. FEVER: If your child’s temperature is 100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater (or 1 or 2 degrees above the child’s normal temperature) (s)he should remain home until (s)he has been without fever for a full 24 hours. Remember fever is a symptom indicating the presence of an illness. FLU: Abrupt onset of fever, chills, headache and sore muscles. Runny nose, sore throat, and cough are common. Your child should remain home from school until symptoms are gone and the child is without fever for 24 hours. HEAD LICE: Lice are small grayish-tan, wingless insects that lay eggs called nits. Nits are firmly attached to the hair shafts, close to the scalp. Nits are much easier to see and detect than lice. They are small white specks, which are usually found at the nape of the neck and behind the ears. Following lice infestation, your child may return to school after receiving treatment with a pediculicide shampoo. PAIN: If your child complains, or behavior indicates, that (s)he is experiencing persistent pain, (s)he should be evaluated by a physician before your child is sent to school. PINKEYE: Redness and swelling of the membranes of the eye with burning or itching, yellow or green drainage coming from one or both eyes, or crusts on the eyelids. Your child should remain home from school until receiving 24 hours of antibiotic therapy, as determined by your physician, and discharge from the eyes has stopped. SKIN RASHES: A physician should evaluate skin rashes of unknown origin before your child is sent to school. STREP THROAT AND SCARLET FEVER: Strep throat usually begins with fever, sore and red throat, possibly pus spots on the back of the throat, tender swollen glands of the neck. With scarlet fever there are all the symptoms of strep throat as well as a strawberry appearance to the tongue and rash of the skin. High fever, nausea and vomiting may also occur. Your child should remain home from school until receiving a full 24 hours of antibiotic therapy and until without fever or vomiting for 24 hours. Most physicians will advise rest at home 1-2 days after a strep infection. VOMITING AND DIARRHEA (INTESTINAL VIRAL INFECTIONS): Stomach ache, cramping, nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea, possible fever, headache, and body aches. Your child should remain at home until without vomiting, diarrhea or fever for a full 24 hours. If your child has had any of these symptoms during the night, (s)he should not be sent to school the following day.   Jen Royalty jroyalty@wayne-local.com Wayne Local School Nurse
