Message from the Principal
Hello Prairie Friends & Families,
Happy Friday! Our learners had a great time exchanging Valentine cards today! I caught a few of our second-grade friends in action in the pictures below. Our first-grade friends also took time to exchange kind words! Take a look below.
This is a friendly reminder to send your learner to school with winter gear for outdoor recess every day. We keep our learners inside if the temperature or wind chill is below 0. We do head outdoors for fresh air whenever it's not too cold. Having winter gear here each day, regardless of the temperature, will ensure that your learner is prepared for outdoor recess. Thank you for your help with this!
We are Team Prairie!
We are stronger together!

This is helpful for us in the event of notifying parents of a classroom quarantine or school emergency.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school office.
As we enter the second half of the school year, we are finding the need to replenish some classroom supplies for the student bins. We are asking each student to bring in another box of crayons, box of markers, and 2 glue sticks. Please label and return to school with your child so they can be added to their plastic bin of supplies. If you are willing to donate any extra supplies, we will be happy to accept those. Thank you so much for your support.
