Message from the Principal
Hello Prairie Friends and Families,
We are looking forward to celebrating all of the hard work our Prairie learners have done throughout 2020 on Tuesday. We will celebrate with pajama day and many all-school guest readers, along with an all-school read in! We would love for our virtual learners to join us when they are able to after their live instruction finishes up in the morning. Some virtual teachers will be having their classes join us for the morning read alouds also. The schedule for Tuesday is as follows:
9:00am Read Aloud with Mrs. Edwards (School Counselor)
10:00am Read Aloud with 5th Grade Readers
11:30am Read Aloud with Coach Courtney (Playworks)
1:00pm Read Aloud with 5th Grade Readers
2:00-3:00pm All School Read-In (read books of your choice in your classroom or from the comfort of your home!)
3:00pm Read Aloud with Mrs. Solberg
I will invite all virtual students to these read alouds through a message in WebEx Teams on Monday and again on Tuesday morning. We look forward to celebrating together through reading while in our pajamas with everyone on Tuesday!
We are Team Prairie!
We are stronger together!
