PRAIRIE POST

September 4, 2020

Message from the Principal

Hello Prairie Friends and Families,


Our first week of the 2020-2021 school year was a great success! Our learners did a phenomenal job of adjusting to new routines and procedures. Our teachers did an amazing job of creating welcoming and engaging learning environments while implementing all of the mitigation strategies. We had our first fire drill on Thursday. Our learners exited the building quickly and quietly and were ready to follow their teachers' directions. We will conduct a fire drill at least one time per month. Learners were excited to see their friends and teachers in their Puma spirit gear today. We will continue to have spirit days every Friday - wear your Puma gear!


Thank you to our families for your continued support of our school community. We sure are lucky. Everyone on Team Prairie should feel proud! Enjoy the long weekend. We look forward to seeing the team back together on Tuesday!


We are Team Prairie!

We are stronger together!


Carly Solberg
