Our District Story

Our story matters.  Each year, we kick off the school year with an event to celebrate where we have been, where we are and where we are going.  Recently, our themes have come together to shape an essential question…

What if we create Waukee and awaken the hearts of others…?

Warrior Talk 2015

Waukee has ideas worth spreading.

Admiring and learning from the work of TED and TEDx events for years, Waukee Schools would like to create a space for our own active learning community. Similar to the TED organization, who connects inspired thinkers and curious souls through short, powerful talks, Waukee Schools will be hosting an event this December to help spread ideas from the hearts and minds of our teachers, students, and community members. Please join us for an event where we can learn, engage, and inspire each other by connecting our powerful ideas to our purpose as educators.
