Waukee Stadium Guidelines

To ensure safety and sportsmanship within our competition venues, the following guidelines have been created. We ask all Warrior fans and supporters of all ages, to abide by these guidelines. Go Warriors!

Waukee Community School District students are assigned to sit in assigned areas of the home side (west side) of Waukee Stadium:

Elementary students will not be sitting with middle/high school students, temporary bleachers will be in place for the first game. Newly constructed 10-row bleachers will hopefully be in place for the remaining games this season and years to come. Students can access this section using the walkway underneath the west (home) bleachers.

Lost and Found

Brookview’s Lost and Found can be found outside the music room.  Brookview quickly accumulates a large quantity of jackets, coats, sweatshirts, hats, gloves and lunch boxes.   Please check the Lost and Found area often.  Twice a year – At Christmas Break and Spring Break, anything not claimed is donated to a charitable organization.

SchoolMessenger

Waukee Community School District (WCSD) uses SchoolMessenger for emergency notifications. Notifications include inclement weather, late starts or other emergency situations that may arise during or after school hours. SchoolMessenger works with PowerSchool, so there is no list for parents to sign up for, however, in order for parents to receive a text message, parents must complete the “opt-in” process.

Subscribe by texting: “Y”, “Yes,” or “Subscribe” to 67587. The cell phone numbers used must be in PowerSchool to receive a notification. Unsubscribe at any time by texting the key words: “Quit”, “Remove” or “Unsubscribe” to 67587.

PTO Information

For information about the PTO please visit https://sites.google.com/view/bvpto/

FB: @BrookviewPTO

PTO Classroom Directories

The PTO is also compiling Classroom Directories this year, using a Google Form:  https://tinyurl.com/y8t34p6x .  Please submit one form per child, not per family.  This will be the primary means used to communicate for Classroom Coordinators who will use this information for classroom parties (Fall, Harvest, Spring) as well as Staff Appreciation Events throughout the year. Teachers do not share contact information for students, so the hope is this will be a way to share classmate contact information.  Once collected, this information will be shared to the parents/guardians in your child’s classroom who chose to participate in this Classroom Directory.
