Our PTO Makes Positive Strides for All Students

Dear Prairie Mountain Community,

Last night’s  PTO meeting was encouraging, inspiring and informative.

Thank you to Jeni Gerlach, our amazing elementary music teacher, for opening up her classroom and talking to us about music education here on the Mountain. Thank you to Sherine Forest, our district nurse, for educating us on the Coronavirus, providing resources for families, and helping us understand steps that our district is taking to keep our kids healthy and safe. Thank you to Todd Woodward for sharing about his work creating a Parent Group designed for parents/guardians with students with disabilities. And thank you to all of the Project-Leaders who spoke about their upcoming projects.

Please know how much I appreciate all of you and the work we are doing together as a team for our most precious assets, our KIDS. We do our best work when we do it together.
Thank you,
Jill RW

Bingo cards are $3.00 each, or two for $5. There will be food available for purchase as well.

Come and join us as we support this annual fundraiser for our 8th grade departure event and activities.

Thank you, Prairie Mountain families, for attending our last PTO meeting. We had a great turnout with lots of families learning more and more about the abundant opportunities Prairie Mountain offers our students.

I would like to thank Mrs. Maul, Mrs. Dodd, Mikayla, and Charlotte for their presentation about Sources of Strength (our district-wide suicide prevention program). Mrs. Dodd was also able to share about small group instruction in ELA 8th grade classes.

Hilary Mankofsky, our Safe Schools coordinator, shared important information regarding programs and opportunities in our community involving bicycle safety, as well as safety with scooters and all variety of wheeled transportation.

Prairie Mountain PTO meetings are one of the highlights of my month. Thank you again for supporting our amazing school and finding ways that you can get involved. Remember, we do our best work when we do it together.

Thank you, and as always, Go Eagles!



January PTO Meeting, Go EAGLES!

Hello Prairie Mountain Students and Families,

Happy New Year!  Thank you to everyone who attended our PTO meeting this week.  It was a great meeting filled with lots of fundraising information, including share-outs from Project-Leaders, moneys raised, and upcoming projects on the Mountain.  I was able to share our student behavioral data for the month of December, information about our upcoming On the Path to Graduation evening for 7th and 8th grade students and families, the recent installation of Feminine Hygiene Dispensers, interest in planning/organizing a Science Fair, and recent conversations as a staff around the implementation of Calm Corners in our classrooms.  It was a great night!  I would encourage you all to come on out to our PTO meetings to learn more about our amazing school and upcoming events.  

Thanks again and Go Eagles!
