A glimpse of the talent at the Multicultural Fair

A glimpse of the talent at the Multicultural Fair

Prairie Mountain Families,

Spring has brought tons of fun and great learning to Prairie Mountain. It has been such a pleasure to see students engaged in field trips, Bike Safety, and fun school events. We have an outstanding line up of activities at Prairie Mountain for students and families in the coming weeks.

We loved seeing students and families with us for the Multicultural Fair on Friday. We had great food, performances, and informational booths highlighting some of the cultural diversity in our region. Thank you to our planning committee and to all the contributions of time, materials, and talent from our families and from local organizations. We’ll hope to see everyone next year in May 2017!

Here are a few additional events coming up:

May 24 Move Up Day: Students will have an opportunity to visit teachers and classes at the next grade level as they look forward to next year.

May 26 First Grade Music Performances: Students in Ms. Hall’s, Ms. Hanson’s, and Ms Bryant and Ms Robert’s classes will perform for our K-5 students during an assembly during the day and will perform for families at 7:00pm.

June 9 BBQ: Plan to join us June 9 at 5:30pm for our annual Prairie Mountain BBQ. It’s a great way to celebrate the end of the year as we enjoy a meal together.   Our Buy One Get One Free Book Fair will be taking place at the same time that evening from 5:30pm-7:00pm.   The Book Fair will continue June 10 from 7:40am-3:00pm. Get ready for a summer of reading!

We hope that students and families enjoy the coming weeks as we approach the end of the school year. We know the friendships and connections formed this year are an important part of school success for all our students.

Practicing Safety

school-safetyThis morning we had a school wide lock down drill.  We practice lock down drills two times each year to make sure that students know how to be safe in the event of an unsafe person on campus. If you have any questions about any of our routine safety drills, you may contact your student’s homeroom teacher.

He Just Won a New Bike!

Big smiles around for the winner of the new bike.

Big congratulations to Joseph Schmidt,  a Prairie Mountain first grader, who won the $400  gift certificate from Paul’s for a new bike.  Joseph will be able to use any left over money for a helmet, lock or other accessories.

Any school that participated in Walk + Bike to School Day, and/or Challenge Month was eligible to submit one name from their school  for the district wide raffle. (K-8 schools were allowed 2 names to submit).

Everybody who participated is a winner – using active transportation helps kids think better, keep a healthy weight, and eliminates traffic during drop off and pick up!

Prairie Mountain’s other winner was Dakota Sims; she won a  bike helmet.

Congratulations to Joseph and Dakota.
