a Difference Day is an annual day of community service. Hundreds
of volunteers take part in community projects around the world,

Partridge's PBL Focus is on Military Topics
Partridge Elementary's building-wide PBL focus is off to a great
start with the first quarter topic being military for the school
located on Fort Leonard Wood.
Each grade level has a different driving question, but regardless
of the grade level, teachers are seeing increased engagement,
critical thinking skills and overall excitement from the students.
"Students are learning how to work together and practice
their public speaking skills while also learning grade level standards,"
said Principal Melissa Vernon.
Along with PBL, the building is implementing Stephen Covey's
7 habits this year. LEAD groups with a focus on helping the school
and community will be introduced during the second semester. Staff
members are completing a book study and presenting their chapter
at faculty meetings.
"At the last meeting we learned that leadership is about
effectiveness, doing the right things. Management is about efficiency,
doing things right," Vernon said.
"As educators we must create schedules and lesson plans but
we must also lead by example and inspire others."
On a daily basis, Partridge students relate situations back to
the habits. Staff members, students and parents strive to live
these habits daily and they are a part of everyone's vocabulary.
To date discipline referrals have decreased from 12 this time
last year to three.
"I believe a big part of this is due to the teachers' hard
work in instilling the habits," Vernon said. "At Partridge,
we believe that positive habits create a positive habitat and
at Partridge we definitely have a positive habitat!"
As they have in the past, staff members celebrate student success
through paws for praise, monthly calls home and daily morning
announcements celebrating academics, behavior and the social aspect.
"We continually work to refine the PLC process and our
teachers are focused on student results and instructional strategies
that are proving to be effective," Vernon says.
Just in time for Halloween, the WHS Theatre Department and Thespian
Troupe 1669 will present the play, "The Uninvited" by

Dramatists Play Service, Inc. states the following about the
play, "Seeking to escape the demands of life in London, Pam
Fitzgerald and her brother, Roddy, an aspiring playwright, discover
a charming house in the west of England, overlooking the Irish
Sea. The house, Cliff End, has long been empty, and they are able
to purchase it at a suspiciously low price from crusty Commander
Brooke, the village curmudgeon. The reason is soon apparent: The
house has an unsavory reputation. Fifteen years earlier a murder
may or may not have occurred by the gnarled tree that can be viewed
from the parlor window. Slowly the Fitzgeralds begin to sense
the evil spirit that still inhabits the house, announcing its
presence with a sudden, bone-chilling cold. Their housekeeper's
cat will not enter the nursery, where the sound of a weeping woman
adds to the tense atmosphere, and the scent of a flowery, exotic
perfume called mimosa comes and goes. The village doctor, the
local gossip, and a former governess, visit with strange stories
of the beautiful Mary Meredith, who once lived in the house and
of the striking, unstable Carmel, who posed for a painting that
led to her destruction. With the help of Mary's daughter, Stella,
a beautiful young girl whose mysterious birth holds the key to
the puzzle, and a seance arranged by an actress friend of the
Fitzgeralds, Cliff End is forced, at last, to reveal its dark
secrets. The action then builds steadily to a truly terrifying
climax, in which the ghost is discovered to be not only real but
Senior citizens age 60 and older who reside in the Waynesville
R-VI School District may pick up their athletic passes during

Office in Waynesville.

Parking Lot Renovation
Everything gets worn down eventually, including parking lots.
The Waynesville High School parking lot has never been repaved
and it shows in many places.
The parking lot asphalt was "starting to fail in many areas,"
according to Chris Berger, assistant superintendent of operational
Cracks and holes littered the lot. In some areas, the cracks
could swallow a person's heel.
Most of the lot is being redone, except for the 9th grade center's
section because it is less than five years old. "Instead,
it is only being sealed and re-striped as it is newer and in much
better condition," says Berger.
Willard Asphalt continues to finish working on the project and
has been working on days that students are not present to minimize
interruption of daily activities. If weather delays occur, then
Willard might have to ask students to park in a different location
for the work to be completed.
Willard's work includes grinding up the high school parking lot,
digging out chunks, and repaving it all. Since the 9th Grade Center
is just getting a touch up, Willard will focus on the rest of
Berger and Kevin Pritchard, director of operations, decided it
was time to repair and repave the lot and give it a fresher look.

Business Asset Protection Class
Webster University's Ft. Leonard Wood campus is looking for businesses
and organizations willing to be the subject of a term project for
its Business Asset Protection class. What the class does is look
at a business or organization from a safety and security perspective
to determine what risks the businesses may have from a physical,
IT, and legal/regulatory viewpoint, then provide recommendations
on how to reduce or eliminate those risks. What makes this class
unique is that the majority of the students are Army and Marine
Corps Military Police Captains currently participating in the MP
Captain's Career Course at Ft. Leonard Wood. These students already
come in with a strong background in physical security and law enforcement,
so the course is more focused on the business aspects of asset protection.
The benefit of being part of the term project is the students get
exposed to issues that concern real world businesses and organizations
rather than trying to infer these from a textbook or case studies.
The benefit to the businesses and organizations is they get an independent
review of their operations by a team of Soldiers and Marines that
have training and experience in ensuring the safety and security
of personnel and materiel under battlefield conditions.
We estimate it will take 2-4 hours of the organization's time during
the 9 week course. Events include providing an overview and tour
of the businesses facilities, which usually lasts between 1-2 hours.
There's usually a follow-up visit or phone calls over the next few
weeks as the teams continue to gather information and refine their
recommendations, then the last week of class the students provide
an Outbriefing of their findings and recommendations to the business
or organizations managers and staff. This usually takes 45 minutes
to an hour. Deliverables are a report of their findings and the
final outbriefing that are provided to the businesses and organizations.
All recommendations are confidential and are only shared between
the business who participates, the students that work on the project,
and the professor of the class. Should you be interested in being
a subject of this project or want further information, please contact
Gary Hacker at email@example.com,

Armed Services YMCA Field of Heroes 2016
November 11-12th - To show respect to ALL our heroes- past and
present, The "Field of Heroes" is an opportunity for
us all to honor those that we consider our HEROES. Your hero may
be a service member currently serving our country, a veteran,
a firefighter, police officer, EMT, or maybe it's your grandfather.
We all have heroes in our lives.
In conjunction with the city of Waynesville and the Veterans
Day Parade, the Armed Services YMCA will be presenting a field
of flags, arranged in the style of Arlington National Cemetery,
along the parade route and each flag will be available for sponsorship
to allow you to recognize a specific hero in your life. 3 x 5
flags will be on poles and arranged in precision rows on Nov.
11-12th, 2016. All proceeds will go to support programs for the
families of our service members stationed right here in Missouri.
Participants will have the opportunity to sponsor a 3'x5' flag
for $50.00 or a 15" boot flag for $25.00. On each flag or
boot flag will be the name, branch of service and date of service
of the honoree. A commemorative card listing the date of the event
as well as the honoree's information will be provided to each
person that sponsors a 3x5 flag or boot flag.
The public will be allowed to walk through the Field of Heroes
and spend some time amongst the reverence being paid to these
heroes. Photos will be permitted. All proper flag etiquette will
be rendered, including having the field properly lit at night.
Our goal is to have 300 3x5 flags and 200 boot flags on this field
representing 500 heroes at this event.
Corporate or individual sponsorships are offered at the $500/$1000/$2500
level. Each sponsor's name will be listed on pre-event materials
and a banner displayed the entire weekend. Guardian Sponsors ($2500
level) will also receive a commemorative flag in display case
and a plaque to read" Flown at Field of Heroes Nov. 11-12th,
