Totem Tales 10/6
Message from Mrs. Johnson
Thank you! Words cannot express our gratitude for the support Waukee Elementary received from our 2nd annual Fun Run sponsored by PTO. Thank you SO much for the generous donations that were made and the many parent volunteers it took to plan and facilitate a successful FUN Run for over 750 students! The weather was beautiful and it was an awesome event for our entire school community. Additionally, we’re so appreciative that so many families were able to attend our first-ever Tailgate Social that Friday night. It was fun to socialize and have staff volunteer to grill and serve!
Our Fall Harvest Parties will be held Thursday, October 26th, from 2:30-3:15 pm at Waukee Elementary. All Waukee Elementary students are invited to wear costumes at the party. Children should not wear their costumes to school. Students should bring their costumes in a bag on party day. If students would rather not wear a costume, they are welcome and encouraged to wear fall colors instead. It is important to keep costumes as simple as possible. Also, in attempt to downplay the commercialism of violence and gore, we ask that you send a costume to school with your child that is appropriate for elementary children. We will not allow the wearing of a costume that portrays violence, blood, gore, death themes, guns, knives, etc. Children will also not be allowed to use face paints and colored hair sprays.
We do discourage younger siblings from attending classroom parties with parents. Reminder that our district use a system that requires all visitors to scan their photo ID and have a name badge to enter the school. This is required, and with many people attending that day, there could be a wait. You will not be allowed to enter until you have been scanned into the system. In order to avoid the delay on party day, stop into the office prior to 10/26, and asked to be scanned in.
