@walnuthillsel held their Beautification Day on Friday, May 3. Students planted gardens with vegetables and flowers, participated in a plant talk, learned about insects, and planted Honeycrisp apple trees. Snap peas from the garden will be used in Farm to School Summer programming at WCSD Picnic and Play sites as part of the statewide “Snap for Snap Peas” campaign. Thank you to Lowe's Home Improvement on Jordan Creek Parkway for their donation of 480 plants to make the school look beautiful!

Silvercord students

Silver Cord Program

The purpose of the Waukee Silver Cord Program is to instill within students the importance of community service and encourage students to be accountable for investing in their own education and in their community on a regular basis during their school years.

All students are eligible to earn silver cord hours between November 15 of their freshman year and April 30 of their senior year. Students volunteering 175 hours by April 30 of their senior year will have the distinct honor of wearing a silver cord during their graduation ceremony.

To begin earning silver cord hours, students login to the silver cord website using their WCSD username and password.
