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. Ms. Bibler nominated Riley for her energy, positivity, and her inspiring self confidence!

Congratulations to our Warrior of the Day, Heidi Bibler. Ms. Bibler is a Spanish teacher at Waukee High School. Outside of school, Ms. Bibler enjoys Latin dances, acting, reading, and music. One of her many favorite quotes is "If you knew who walked beside you at all times on this path that you have chosen, you could never experience fear or doubt again" by Dr. Wayne Dyer. Jared Knudson nominated Ms. Bibler because she makes class fun, has encouraged his improvement, and has been a big help during his time in her classes.
