Staffing Changes

As we look forward to the 2022-23 school year, I want to share with you a few staffing changes.


Mrs. Porras, current technology teacher, will move to the School Improvement Specialist position due to the retirement of Mrs. Reinoehl.


Mrs. Minton, former 5th grade teacher, will be returning to Prairie Ridge as the technology teacher.


Due to current enrollment numbers in our 1st grade, next year we will have three sections of 2nd grade. We are very sad to say goodbye to Mrs. Zymball. She was a long-time sub at PRE before joining our staff this year. We wish her the best as she moves to Belmont Elementary to teach 2nd grade.


With five sections of 4th grade, we will move to five sections of 5th grade next year. Ms. Proehl, 4th grade teacher, will move up to teach 5th grade next year.


Mr. Rex is retiring after serving as PRE's lead custodian since the building opened. Mr. Joel, one of our current evening custodians, will step into the role of lead custodian for the 2022-23 school year.
