Brookview PTO

Brookview Carnival

Join us at the Brookview Carnival Sunday, October 15 from 2-4PM at Brookview!  There will be inflatables, games, cake walk, face and hair painting, and more.  A new tailgate theme will be incorporated into the event, and the majority of the activities will be relocated from the crowded hallways and classrooms to the fresh air (weather permitting). We will also hold a raffle in the cafeteria to raise money for the school.  We have eliminated the classroom theme raffle baskets from this year’s event to alleviate pressure from our families and teachers.  Instead we will collect items for 6 themes at the school level: Hawkeye Pride, Cyclone Pride, Waukee Warrior Pride, Parents Night Out, Family Fun Night, and Taste of the Town.  This is 100% voluntary, all donations are greatly appreciated, and sign up spots will be created to aid in managing the items donated and mitigate duplicate donations.  Donations will be collected 10/2-10/12 in the hallway in front of Mrs. Peek’s office.  Silver Cord Opportunities are already posted in Waukee HS Social Media sites for students looking for volunteer opportunities.   Contact Sarah Quang with questions at sarahquang@gmail.com.

PTO Snack Drive!

Every day there are Brookview students who come to school without a healthy snack.  Most of the time the teachers are supplying those kiddos snacks with money out of their own pockets. Please help the PTO build an  “emergency snack stash” by bringing in your peanut/tree nut free snacks the weeks of September 25 and October 2.

Your contributions can simply be dropped off in the office and then Mrs. Angelino will distribute the snacks as they are needed throughout the building.If you have questions, please contact Shannon Gausman (sdgwdm@gmail.com) or Maren Trettin (mmkeyz@hotmail.com). Thank you for contributing to our first ever snack drive!
