A Message from the Principal

Dear Prairie View Friends and Families,

As we approach the end of the 2022-2023 school year, I want to take a moment to reflect on all that we have accomplished together. Our students have continued to excel academically, creatively, and athletically. This is due to their hard work, resilience, and dedication.

I want to express my deepest gratitude to Prairie View faculty and staff, who have worked tirelessly to support our students and ensure their success. Their commitment to excellence and dedication to our school is truly inspiring.

Finally, I want to congratulate our graduating eighth graders and wish them all the best as they move on to high school. I have no doubt that they will continue to make us proud and achieve great things in the years to come.

Thank you all for a wonderful school year. Have a safe and enjoyable summer.


Ms. Maura R. Baskovich
