Dear Parents and Guardians of the PAWSOME PUMAS,
Happy New Year!!!
Welcome back PUMAS!!! We are excited to begin the 2018 school year with the expectation of serving our scholars to ensure that they have the opportunity to pursue their dreams in the future. We are proud of the culture that you are continuously helping us mold here at Prairie. On many occasions, there is this idea of getting back into the routine when you return from a break. Not at Prairie! I have been amazed at how our scholars have continued to model the PUMA WAY to bring in the new year. I have even overheard a few of our scholars say, "I feel that we never left school." Thank you for helping to support and foster a culture that empowers our scholars to feel that school is their second home. We will continue to C.L.I.M.B. the Mountain of Success in 2018. Have a Pawsome weekend, and I hope to see you at Culver's Night, the PTA Meeting and Science Night next week.
Restaurant Night: Monday, January 8th 5-8 p.m. at Culver’s on Sunset. Come join your Prairie friends at Culver's. The flavor of the day will be Mint Chip.
PTA Meeting: Tuesday, January 9th 6:30p.m. in the Prairie library. Join us as we hear from Principal Griffin and discuss other PTA business. Free childcare is available for school aged children from Red Cross Certified Babysitters. Tune in on Facebook Live if you cannot attend in person.
Science Night – Fire and Ice: Friday, January 12th 6:30p.m.-7:30p.m. Children will be dazzled and entertained as they interact with our Mad Scientists! Foggy dry ice storms, giant beach balls floating in the air and even a special Mad Science “burp” potion will amaze children as they learn about chemical reactions, air pressure and the states of matter.
Collections: The next deadline is February 2nd. Congratulations to Mrs. Winkler’s 4th grade class who brought in the most collections items this month and will get to host Puma Claws in their classroom. Congratulations as well to Mrs. Ferguson’s class who won a pajama day and Mrs. Dugan’s class who won a crazy hair day. The top classroom for collections for the entire 2017-18 school year will get to turn Mr. Griffin into Pikachu at Puma Palooza on Sat. May 5th!
Art & Talent Showcase on Fri. 3/9 (new date): Prairie students get a chance to show their stuff! Cheerleading, dancing, singing, playing instruments, comedy, magic, or for those less likely to get on stage, directing a Prairie commercial, drawing, sculpting or anything else you consider art. General guidelines are 2 minutes or less and no lip syncing. More information will come home shortly after Winter Break.
