Tiger Pride System
The Tiger Pride System (TPS) aims to reward effort and achievement by offering various privileges to students who maintain a high standard of academics, citizenship, and attendance. The TPS incentive program is an integral part to the daily school operations and a major motivator for students to put an emphasis on their attendance and GPA. The program utilizes these qualifications to provide the best learning environment for all students at WHS.
The purpose of the card program is to proactively incentivize students with relevant privileges that are meaningful to them, such as travel to privilege areas during Tiger Time and the ability to leave for lunch a couple of minutes early to beat the rush. This program was first developed during the 2015-16 school year and revised with input from faculty and student groups to best meet the needs of our students for the 2016-17 school year. We will continue to monitor and update the system as needed, so the system remains relative and motivating to all students.
Paying for your child's school meals
The Waynesville R-VI School District now offers MySchoolBucks, a convenient online service that allows you to securely pay for your student’s meals online using your credit/debit card or electronic check.

- And More…
Sign up now! Registering for your account is easy, go to https://www.MySchoolBucks.com. Create a secure account and never worry again about sending cash or checks with your student(s) to school again!
MySchoolBucks – the Waynesville R-VI School District’s new online meal payment system – is free to use to look up a student’s balances/transaction history/etc.; however, a $2 payment processing fee is charged for making an online payment with MySchoolBucks.
In the former system, a .29 cents fee plus 2.9% of the amount of the transaction was charged. MySchoolBucks charges a flat $2.00 fee, regardless of the amount. Parents may avoid paying the fee by sending in a check to their student’s school.
Debit and credit card companies charge a payment processing fee for payments made online, but many businesses absorb that cost. Waynesville R-VI serves about 1 million meals annually and spends about $1 million more than it receives in income from students and commodities without the additional payment processing fee.
