I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.”



Bill Cosby

Dr. Cleaster Jackson


It is with great sadness and heavy heart that we announce Dr. Jackson’s retirement. With over 30 years as a teacher, principal, and mentor, she said good-bye to her colleagues, friends, and family at a “Retirement Affair” on May 17, 2013, held at Sinclair College.



Dr. Jackson will be remembered as a person who made all professional decisions based on what was “best for children”.

Correct Phone and Address

As this school year ends, we are already making plans for the 2013-2014 school year. With a new principal (to be announced) coming in, we know he/she will be informing all WOW families of his/her goals, philosophy, and expectations for students and families. Therefore, it is vital that we have your CORRECT ADDRESS and PHONE NUMBER, as some correspondence will be mailed, and some correspondence will be made with a phone call. Changing your address is very easy. Bring in PROOF OF RESIDENCE (current DP&L bill, Vectren bill, Lease Agreement, or bank statement)! Just call the office to change your phone number. Call 542-3600 for more information.



Sixth Graders Reminded to Get Tdap Vaccination
Dayton Public Schools requires all sixth-grade students to receive the Tdap vaccination before being promoted to the seventh grade. Ohio law requires that all students receive this tetanus and whooping cough booster. Parents may choose to have their children vaccinated through their own doctors, or by Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County, which is open daily in the Reibold Building. Parents MUST provide the school with written proof of the Tdap vaccination from the doctor or clinic as soon as possible. For more information, please contact your child’s school directly.http://www.dps.k12.oh.us/content/images/vaccination-300x226.jpg

Teaching Artistic Behaviors

Seventh and Eighth grade students were able to make project choices in the art room. Danesa Marshal-Clemons created a clay “elephant” that she presented to her grandmother. Many other students chose to create pottery, plaques, draw imaginative characters, create graffiti and/or build three dimensional letters.





The First Company from DCDC visited WOW. Thank you to the Park Rangers of Montgomery County for funding this incredible opportunity for our students.
