District News Update November 3, 2014

November 03, 2014

The first quarter of the school year has been outstanding! Every day our students demonstrate that they are growing, learning and striving to be at their best! Our school district "Essential Outcomes" priorities include guiding students to become confident learners, collaborators, communicators, problem solvers, critical and creative thinkers, and independent, responsible citizens. Helping students succeed academically is the primary purpose of our school district, and our students perform well on state tests. The Nebraska Department of Education recently released the "State of the Schools" report provides information about academic achievement.

Evidence that we are succeeding in helping our students reach the "essential outcomes" has been demonstrated through some of the events over the past few weeks. As a school district, we are teaching the basic core education consisting of reading, writing, math, science, social studies, physical education and health, but we doing much more than that. We are partnering with our students, parents, and communities to teach our students to be positive, contributing citizens in our society. The following are just a few of the recent examples:

The Waverly High School FCCLA partnered with the Nebraska State Patrol and the Waverly Volunteer Fire/Rescue department to raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving. Our students were featured on Channel 8 news in Lincoln for their efforts to make our school and community better!

WHS students attended the Future Farmers of America national conference during the last week of October. Christy Cooper and Caitlin Davis placed 10th in their division at the FFA National Agriscience Fair; Malcolm Carney, Andrew Neujahr, Aaron Oschner and Shaylee Truax received their American Degree - congratulations! The Waverly FFA members put together 350 snack bags to hand out at the Walton, Eagle, and Prairie Home Co-op locations for "Feeding Our Farmers" as a way to show appreciation to local producers.

Students and staff participated in Red Ribbon week October 27-31 to promote awareness about the dangers of drugs. Many activities centered around educating students about making good decisions and taking a pledge to be drug-free.

Grandparents/V.I.P. Day provides a chance for students to share their educational experience with family members

Waverly Intermediate School student council attended a leadership conference at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln where they participated in many sessions with students from schools throughout the region.

Eagle Elementary and Hamlow Elementary schools both hosted "grandparents/special friends" day and had a tremendous turnout. The students enjoyed an opportunity to show the adults their school, and reinforce the importance of educational partnerships. The Eagle PTE and Waverly PTO did an outstanding job of organizing the day and helping to make it a success. Waverly High School students were on hand to help with the event, and also to serve as a "special friend" to students who were not able to have an adult present with them on this day. Our schools cannot educate students without the support and help from families.

The School District #145 Foundation for Education provided the financial support to host the Youth Frontiers Retreats in our schools.

All students in 5th grade attended a "Kindness Retreat" last week at Eagle Elementary. All 7th grade students participated in a "Courage Retreat" at Waverly Middle School, and all 9th grade students were involved with the "Respect Retreat" at Waverly High School.

The award winning Waverly High School marching band received another top rating (superior) at the state competition. One of our band members, Maggie Geiler, was recently selected to perform as part of the U.S. Army's All-American Band, which only selects the top high school band students in the country!

The Waverly High School football team's hard work paid off for them this season. After losing the first few games, the team won a district championship and qualified for the state playoffs, and were defeated by the number 1 rated Omaha Skutt team.

The first quarter of the school year is only the beginning! We expect many great things are yet to come this year in District 145!
