Collectively, staff members work to remove barriers that may impact student progress and achievement, providing increasingly advanced coursework and instruction at all grade levels. Every employee, volunteer and community partner associated with our district works to deliver our mission and vision each day.
Waukee Warrior Kid Games was a hit! Sunshine, field day games, family fun, and cookies from HyVee, all to support the amazing Back-to-School Resource Fair July 30 from 4-7 at Timberline School. A huge thank you to FOTH for sponsoring the event and donating $1,000 that will be used to purchase school supplies for the fair!
@walnuthillsel held their Beautification Day on Friday, May 3. Students planted gardens with vegetables and flowers, participated in a plant talk, learned about insects, and planted Honeycrisp apple trees. Snap peas from the garden will be used in Farm to School Summer programming at WCSD Picnic and Play sites as part of the statewide “Snap for Snap Peas” campaign. Thank you to Lowe's Home Improvement on Jordan Creek Parkway for their donation of 480 plants to make the school look beautiful!
