Eagles are Ready to Soar at the Jog-a-thon

The 2019 Prairie Mountain Jog-a-thon is right around the corner and the hallways are buzzing with excitement! Our amazing PM K-5 Jog-a-thon will be held this Friday, September 27th from 12:30-1:30 (Jog-a-thon running schedule was sent in Tuesday folders).

 

In order to raise as much money as we can to support our PTO and the Prairie Mountain School community, the Prairie Mountain PTO now has an online fundraising option for families.  Families can now go to 99pledges and submit online donations for a student. Just follow this link, type in your student’s First and Middle name, and Last initial, put in your donation, submit payment, and viola’, it’s that easy!  However if one doesn’t not want to pay online, students will continue to have the option to collect pledges and donations with the Jog-a-thon envelopes that we have used in the past.  These envelopes were sent home in Tuesday folders on 9/17/19. 

 

Last year our K-5 students raised $5330.46!  Our goal this year is to raise at least $6500, and we know that we can do anything when we all work together!

Early this morning I checked our 99Pledges website and it looks as if we have raised $2,100!  Wow!  Nice job EAGLES! Let’s keep this up.  I know that we can make our goal of $6500 by our deadline of October 3, 2019.

 

We want all students to have access to engaging learning and experiences during their time on the Mountain. Your donations and pledges will help in supporting our staff and all students. Thank you for your support!

 

Go EAGLES!

PTO is Ready to Rock!

I would like to thank everyone who attended our first PTO meeting of the year last night.  We had over 30 people attend!  This is a true testament of our families’ commitment to our students, staff, and school community.  I was so pleased to see familiar faces and to meet new Prairie Mountain families.  During our meeting, we talked about PM’s PTO mission, PM PTO Projects, Project Leader guideline, and PTO meeting structures.The slides below are the slides shown and discussed last night.  If you weren’t able to make it, no worries!  We always make sure to post PTO meeting slides that were discussed.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, and thank you again for your support. 

Go EAGLES!

Dear Prairie Mountain Students and Families,

Join us on Wednesday, August 28th for our Meet Your Teacher/Curriculum Night!

In years past both of these events have been on two separate nights, but now have become one.  

This will be a great evening where you get to meet teachers, see old and new friends, and learn about how we all can work together to make Prairie Mountain soar to new heights.  

Here’s how the evening will work.

Students and Families of students Kindergarten-5th Grade:

  • Come check out your new classroom, meet your teacher, and learn about curriculum.  Presentations will begin promptly at 5:15 and again at 6:00.  Please plan to attend with your student.  Kindergarten students are asked to attend the classroom events with their family. 
  • Choose one session to attend: 5:15-5:45 OR 6:00-6:30

Students and Families of students 6th-8th Grade:

  • Come check out your new classrooms, meet your teachers, learn about curriculum, and choose your locker. 
  • Presentations will begin promptly at 4:30 and again at 5:15.  Students accompanied by their parents may choose their locker at the end of the presentation.  Please plan to attend with your student.
  • Choose one session to attend: 4:30-5:00 OR 5:15-5:45

Please be sure to be prompt to your selected session as teachers will be presenting important information about their classroom, curriculum, and events that will happen throughout the year. 

Childcare will be provided from 4:20-6:30 for students in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades only.  Translation services will be provided throughout the evening.

PTO Pizza Feast: Prairie Mountain’s PTO works hard each year to raise money that goes directly to our students and staff. Please come and enjoy pizza, salad, and lemonade.  They will be offering a pizza dinner, which includes 2 slices of pizza, salad, and lemonade for $5 a plate!  Dinner will be served from 4:45-6:45.  And of course, we will still have our delicious watermelon out in front of the school for you to enjoy.  

If you ever thought about joining Prairie Mountain’s amazing and spectacular PTO, or even just wanted to find way to become more involved, PTO volunteers will be around the school this evening to answer any questions that you may have.  Our PTO has a fantastic group of volunteers and would love to add you to the team.  

 

Thank you so much, and I can’t wait to see all of you!
