Prairie Mountain School
Two dozen high-quality bike helmets have been donated to students at Prairie Mountain School, courtesy of the local Corson & Johnson law firm.
The firm was looking for ways to help the community and knew one method of keeping kids safe is to provide bike helmets.
Al Hongo of Paul’s Bicycle Way Of Life came to Prairie Mountain to properly fit the students who received a new, free bike helmet.
Thanks to Corson & Johnson and Paul’s for their generous support for kids in our community.

Each of them will receive $1,000 for the school program of their choice.
The 10th annual event also featured a welcoming performance by the talented Shasta Jazz Band.

The love of reading has paid off for five Prairie Mountain students. They have earned a trip to the Oregon Battle of the Books state tournament.
The Bookworms represented Prairie Mountain against 51 other schools at the regional OBOB tournament and finished a close second by correctly answering detailed questions about the 16 OBOB books.
Fairfield and Malabon teams also reached the Sweet 16 of the regional OBOB tournament.
The Prairie Mountain Bookworms – made up of three 5th graders and two 4th graders – now get a few more weeks to re-read the OBOB books and prepare to face the other top teams in the state next month in Salem.
