Kindergarten Music Sharing May 18

We are so excited for our kindergarten Music Sharing this week on Wednesday, May 18th. We’d love it if you and your immediate family were able to attend! Here is the live link for extended family and friends to watch.

  • Miss Seiwert, Mrs. Larson, Mrs. Santos, Mrs. Chmura & Mrs. Naegele’s classes will be performing at 6:00 p.m. The kindergarten performers will be meeting in their classrooms starting at 5:50 p.m. Students should remain with their families until that time.

  • Mrs. Parker, Mrs. Frew, Mrs. Alfirevic & Mrs. Burke’s classes will be performing at 6:40 p.m. The kindergarten performers will be meeting in their classrooms starting at 6:30 p.m. Students should remain with their families until that time.

After each show, stop by the Prairie Trails PTC table to purchase a frozen treat! Treats will be $1 each and you will have the choice between outshine bars or ice cream. Grab a cool treat to celebrate all of the kids' hard work.

We’ll be performing in the Prairie Trails gym. Door 1 will open at 5:40 p.m. for families from the first group to find seats. There is no set dress code for the performance. We just ask that students dress nicely and feel comfortable in what they are wearing.

On February 28, our district shifted to a mask-optional environment for all of our schools. This change also applies to visitors and attendees at in-person school events. During our music sharing event please be respectful of each individual’s masking choice. Please do your best to maintain social distancing when possible. Please note that the district reserves the right to adjust mitigation measures at any time, depending on the current COVID-19 data.

We are very excited to share the music we’ve been working on! Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions at

Thank you,

Mrs. Meghan Thompson

Music teacher, Prairie Trails School


Today, in your child's backpack, there will be a permission slip for a field trip to their home school of Euclid or Indian Grove. We will be busing the students to their appropriate schools for a tour and a chance to meet some of the staff. Please return the permission slip back to your child's teacher asap. This is an important step in the transition to first grade.

Library Books

If you still have any Prairie Trails library books at home, they need to be returned to school as soon as possible. We would hate to charge you for a lost book.


May 18th will be our last day of SHIELD testing.

Volunteers for Kindergarten Field day & Hamburger Day 5/23

If you have already volunteered to help with field day or hamburger day, we will need you to stop in the main office and have your drivers licence or ID scanned. Please try to come in before 5/23 and Mary will get you set up in our system. Stopping in ahead of time will save time on the 23rd. Mary will be available between 8:00-12:00 or 1:30-4:00 Monday-Friday.

May 27, Last Day of School

May 27 has been finalized as the last day of the 2021-2022 school year. It will be a 1:30pm early dismissal day.

Report Cards will be emailed to families on the last day of school.
