Welcome to Waukee

Thanks to all the parents and attendees that made our August 28th “Welcome to Waukee Night” a great evening!  ~25 families and 50 people were at South Middle School to share in learning about our district and ways to support their kids.

If you are new to Waukee and couldn’t make the meeting, feel free to contact Kristin Grotewold or Kevin Tow at South Middle School to get materials from that evening.
