Year-end balance sheet


As we wrap up the 2021-22 school year, it’s worth taking a moment to reflect and also take a look back at the summer. We’ve had another incredible year here in Waukee. Thank you to everyone who contributed to its realization. I am honored by our staff for their resilience, kindness and generosity. I am amazed that our students remind me every day why we do what we do and why we choose to work in education. I remember as a member of our community that it really is a remarkable place.

As I attended graduation last weekend for Waukee and Northwest High Schools, it reminded me that it takes so many dedicated people to bring a student to the point of crossing the stage. Many of these people go unnoticed, but I hope that everyone who has had an impact on even one of our students can be proud of the role you played in their success.

I hope that in all of this, you are taking the time to care for each other, our community, and support each other as we head into summer. Waukee is a special place and I want to reiterate how grateful I am for the amazing people we have in our staff, students, and families.

Thank you and have a good summer!

Dr. Brad Buck
