Food Drive

Waukee Foundation is gearing up once again for our annual food drive! Each year this is the largest drive that helps to stock the shelves at the Waukee Food Pantry.

Interesting facts:

  • The pantry feeds about 200 families each month
  • 9.3% of Dallas County residences are food insecure
  • Usage is up nearly 30% from last year
  • Each month they give away an average of 350 boxes of cereal and 700 cans of vegetables

Below are the items most needed, broken down by schools. Please keep in mind that families can donate anything from the list, regardless of which school they attend. Also, remember that the pantry can take cash donations! They use the money to buy food in bulk for better savings, to purchase items such as turkeys and hams during the holidays, and to purchase fresh items such as milk and eggs.

Cash donations can be made by writing a check made out to Waukee Christian Services and given to the schools or by donating via Revtrak HERE.

The food drive will be held from November 1-16.

Collect Pop Tabs for Ronald McDonald House

Every year, the Ronald McDonald House uses pop tab  donations to cover their energy and water bill expenses.  The tabs are collected and recycled for scrap metal that is sold for money.  One pound of pop tabs equals about $0.40.

Brookview students are competing by grade level to bring in the most pop tabs each month.  The winning grade level gets a prize!  Fifth grade students will collect tabs at the end of each month, calculate the totals, and announce the leading grade level!

Give Love and start collection!

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 68453. 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 68453.
