Civil War Tuesday at Waverly

Posted on: November 21, 2016

To celebrate Saturday’s upcoming 120th Civil War football game between the Oregon Ducks and the Oregon State Beavers, we are asking all students and staff to wear black and orange (to show support for the Beavers) or green and yellow (to show support for the Ducks).  The Ducks wear a variety of colors and uniform combinations so even if you wear blue, pink, white, and/or grey, that will work too!

At 2:15pm on Tuesday we will have a special event taking place at Waverly.  Go Beavers!  Go Ducks!

Waverly Penny War

Posted on: November 20, 2016

Waverly has started a penny war in which each classroom is collecting loose change to raise money for field trips, assemblies, and other school activities for Waverly students.

Each class has received an empty one gallon milk jug.  Students are encouraged to bring in loose change (no cash allowed) to fill their classroom jug.

Competition ends on Monday, December 12th.  The class that raises the most money will win a pizza party from the Waverly All Star Parents Club. The pizza party will be on Thursday December 15th during lunch time.

The winning class will be determined on how much money was earned not how full the jug is.

The Waverly Child Development Center (WCDC) currently serves a culturally diverse class of three to five-year-old children. The ultimate goal of the Center’s work is to ensure future academic success for these children by reaching them at what is now widely-recognized as the most critical life learning stage for achievement.

The Center is a Reggio Emilia-inspired approach to education, nurturing the innate intellectual curiosity in children while supporting their social and emotional development within the classroom community. School activities are largely inquiry-based and exploratory so that children can begin to build their conceptual understandings of the world.

WCDC has a morning and an afternoon session available, and transportation is provided. A meal and a snack is served daily. Staff includes a head teacher and bilingual family liaison.
