Message from the Principal
Hello Prairie Families,
This week our intramural volleyball games wrapped up. The championship games took place on Thursday. Students had a great time throughout the intramural volleyball season and demonstrated great sportsmanship! Again, thank you to Mr. Booth for providing our learners with this awesome opportunity!
We began tracking the number of positive phrases that we hear at recess to work toward our school-wide goal of 400. Our learners are doing an AMAZING job! They surpassed our goal for the month in only two days! It looks like we will need to bump our goals up quite a bit in the future! We heard 296 positive phrases on Monday, 231 positive phrases on Tuesday, 203 positive phrases on Wednesday and 233 positive phrases on Friday! Learners in all recesses are working so hard to build one another up by using positive language. Keep up the great work!
Our student council is doing an excellent job of planning and facilitating the Soup-er Bowl! Our learners are eager to make a difference in the lives of others. See the Soup-er Bowl section below for more information.
Have a great weekend! Enjoy the extra day with your families!
It's hard to believe the month of January is half over! Hope everyone is staying warm on these cold days!
As we stated previously, we are in the beginning stages of planning Puma Palooza, our biggest fundraiser of the year. We are really hoping to make it a bang to add funds for our playground project! We would love to see new faces and minds come together to help plan the event. We are planning to meet before the PTA Meetings from 5:30-6:30. We are also looking to get a meeting together before the next meeting. Feel free to join us! We would love to get new donations, funds to help support activities or even businesses supporting activities. If you have a company who would like to be at the event, donate to the event or have ideas, you can email us as well at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Step it Up
tep It Up for Heart
Prairie students are stepping up as usual and are doing a fantastic job raising funds to help others with sick hearts. Our fundraising efforts will be coming to a close soon but it is not too late. If you would like to help in our efforts please go to: www.stepitupkids.com/Prairie53189 to get started.
A reminder that this year a portion of the funds we raise from Step It Up for Heart will be divided between the American Heart Association and the new playground being planned for Prairie.
If you have collected any cash or checks, please have your child bring that in by next Friday, January 31st and give it to their teacher.
Thank you again for all of your help.
Artists of the Month
Congratulations to January's artists of the Month!
This month, we have 1st grader Landon Harris and Kindergartener Lucy Bayless. Neither of these kids have been at Prairie very long, but they both are excellent behavior role models, show kindness towards their classmates, and demonstrate the Puma Way every day. In addition, Landon and Lucy are super creative and hard-working young artists.
