Waukee students take part in the University of Northern Iowa’s UMETT program. UMETT is a summer program for students who may be interested in entering the teaching profession. It is dedicated to addressing the shortage of underrepresented minorities in the teaching field throughout the country and the state by exposing them to the profession. Participants have the opportunity to learn about the teaching profession and take part in field experiences with students in the Waterloo Community.

A huge thank you goes out to the Waukee Foundation for the grant they awarded to the Physical Education Department. We were able to add @fitlighttraining to our PE classes and can’t wait to continue to explore all the possibilities it will bring our students.

Congratulations to our Warrior of the Day, Riley Atwood! Riley loves #WaukeeHS because there are so many great people and it’s easy to make friends. Outside of school, she enjoys working with kids at her church. Her favorite book is Pride and Prejudice because it shows the consequences of miscommunication and the power of correcting that.
