At Wahoo Elementary, we work to identify each child's positive attributes, and help him/her develop these talents with a growth mindset.

Students with a growth mindset:

1) Embrace challenges

2) Learn from feedback

3) Persist through setbacks

4) Find inspiration from the success of others

5) View effort as the path to mastery

NAEP Region 1 Leadership Conference

Eight Wahoo Elementary students were selected to attend the 2022 Nebraska Association of Elementary Principals Region 1 Leadership Conference. Over 120 students from schools all over Southeast Nebraska attended the conference that was held at Doane University. The focus of the conference was on leadership and what it means to be a leader. Students learned about the 4 pillars of kindness (include, encourage, celebrate, and trust) while participating in team activities with students from different schools.

First Quarter Perfect Attendance

These students will be recognized over the school intercom and will

receive a popsicle on Halloween!

Parental Involvement

Wahoo Elementary welcomes participation of parents and community members in our school! If you are looking for ways to go "ABOVE and BEYOND" as a parent, please click on the button below.

Parental Involvement Opportunties

Thank You For Your Support!!!

 During the fall book fair the Wahoo Kiwanis Club and WPS Foundation generously donated a book to 86 Wahoo Elementary School students. 

Thank you to the Wahoo State Bank, Pizza Hut, and the Wahoo Elementary PTO for providing meals for educators during parent teacher conferences.

Personal Devices at School

Many families send their child to school with a personal device of some kind (cell phone, iPod, high-tech watch). Often, parents do this as a safety measure so students can call/text as they travel between school and home. However, the growing number and types of these devices pose a significant distraction during school hours. Moving forward, all devices (including watches) that have the ability to text/call will be kept in backpacks from 7:45 to 3:15. Students are not to use these devices until they leave the elementary building.
