Thank you to all the families who came and supported Eighth Grade Bingo Night. We had a packed house! It was wonderful to see Prairie Mountain parents and students enjoying themselves and supporting our eighth graders transitioning to Willamette next fall. We love the atmosphere of our K-8 school, where families pull together to support students across all grade levels.

The funds generated from Bingo night will be used for the special eighth grade end of the year activities such as their field trip, departure ceremony and dance. Many of these students have been with us since kindergarten, so Departure Night is always a very meaningful event. We are so grateful for your support.
