Ankeny Community School District

Westwood Elementary School

1st Grade Field Trip

Home - Des Moines Playhouse

This year, all 1st graders will be going to the Des Moines Playhouse to see a performance of Go Dog Go. We are looking for 2 parent/guardian volunteers for each of the 5 classrooms to ride the bus, support a small group of students during the play, and help students get back onto the bus at the conclusion of the show.

Please sign up if you are interested in this opportunity. Teachers will select two volunteers to be assigned to the field trip. If you do not see a teacher's name, the volunteers have already been assigned and the posting has locked.

Volunteers will be responsible for their fee for admission, which is $7 per person. This fee will be charged through the Ankeny School TouchBase Online Payment system. Proof of payment is required by the district office prior to the field trip.
