The Waukee Elementary Equity Team is hosting a “mental health mini-session” on Wednesday, March 30 at 8 a.m. inside the Waukee Elementary library on the importance of a LGBTQ/gender-inclusive curriculum and classroom environment.
This comes just days after the Waukee District had to clarify it had nothing to do with a student-led protest over the Protect Women’s Sports bill. About 140 students participated in that walkout and were marked for unexcused absences.
Those students had originally promoted the event as taking place at Waukee Stadium, but were forced to move it as the district said it wasn’t a district-approved event.
Now, there are flyers “all over” Waukee Elementary according to one source promoting this mental health mini-session on the importance of a LGBTQ/gender-inclusive curriculum and classroom environment.
Those in attendance will learn from Michaela Gyure, Suzanne Laird and Skylar Linnett. Gyure is a music teacher at the school. Laird is the librarian. Linnett is a fourth-grade teacher.
According to the flyer, “everyone is welcome to attend” the 8 a.m. presentation.
