School Speed Limit Reminder

The Reynoldsburg Police Department would like us to remind you that the speed limit on the roadway in an active school zone is 20 mph. Please be aware that once you enter the school parking lot to drop off or pick up your child, and pull back onto the roadway, you are still in the speed restricted zone. Thank you for your added awareness to this matter and your continued support in maintaining a safe environment in and around our schools.

Please continue to send in your Box Tops for Education. Our next submission date is March 1, 2016. If you need more collection sheets your student will be able to pick them up in the school’s office. You also can just send your Box Tops in a baggie. Thanks for your help and support.

Art Request

Please bring clean dry brown paper, thin plastic, pulp and chip board to WRMS Integrated Arts for support structure building in class. Cereal boxes, cardboard tubes, egg cartons, brown paper grocery bags are good sources.

Pennies for Patients Kick-off

This week Waggoner Road Middle School will be kicking off its Pennies for Patients Campaign hosted by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Although it is called “pennies for patients” you can donate more than just pennies if you wish. We also accept checks and through an online funding page which will be launched by February 1st.

Each classroom will have a donation box. The classroom with the highest donations will participate in a dodge ball tournament against the staff at Waggoner Road Middle School at the end of February.

By collecting donations, students will help people touched by blood cancers. In the 1960s the survival rate for the most common form of childhood leukemia was 3%. Today it’s approximately 90% thanks to many research advanced funded by LLS.

Thank you in advance for helping us create a world without blood cancers!

Waggoner PTO Officers for 2016-2017

Many of our PTO officers will be moving on to high school next year. This leaves a big hole to be filled in our Waggoner Campus PTO! If you would be interested in being a PTO officer next year or if you have ideas for what our Waggoner PTO could become, please contact Principal Chris Brooks at cbrooks@reyn.org.

Overdue library book slips are going to start coming home in the Tuesday folders. Students need to return or pay for lost books, or they will not be able to check out any books.
