Prairie Mountain PTO
We hope that you had a restful and relaxing break with one another. Yesterday I saw many students embracing each other and their teachers with smiles and high fives. I overheard many students saying that they had a great break, and are happy to be back at school. There was a buzz all throughout building with teachers being excited to be back on the Mountain. All of this made my heart smile.
Our teachers did a great job encouraging their students to begin 2019 by working hard, being kind and respectful to others, and to be their best selves. A big focus is making 2019 a year to be proud of. Thank you for all of the hard work and commitment that you put into your kids. Thank you for checking in with their teachers and administration on how they are doing in school, and thank you for the countless hours that you give to Prairie Mountain in making it a great place to be.
I would like to invite all of you to our PTO meeting this evening from 5:30-6:30 here at Prairie Mountain in our caforium. There will be snacks, child care, and of course enthusiastic parents/teachers. Tonight we will be reviewing projects that are in the works, and ideas for the future. I will also take a bit of time to talk to you about what’s new at Prairie Mountain and some projects that we are working on.
Events are better with friends, so bring a few with you tonight.
Thank you for supporting our school.

Dear Prairie Mountain community,
Last Tuesday night we had our third PTO meeting of the year. I believe it was filled with important information, acknowledgement, and of course moments of appreciation. Thank you to all of you who have stepped-up to become Project Leaders, and thank you to all who have volunteered. I would like to send out a special thank you to Amy Davis and her Monster Cookie Dough team and Ingrit Swanson for preparing the most amazing meal for our teachers during conferences. Because of folks like them, and you, our school is off to a great start. Please make plans to come to our next PTO meeting which is on Jan. 8th from 5:30-6:30. Things are more fun with friends, so please bring another parent/guardian/family member of a Prairie Mountain student with you. PTO meeting attendee names will go into the drawing for a staff appreciation gift donated by Real Deals.

I would just like to take a bit of time to thank our amazing PTO for their remarkable work on our Harvest Carnival. This year’s carnival was filled with wonderful moments of students and their families playing games and making memories together. We would like to send out a special thank you to Nick Johnson and Alysia Jessee for their amazing work in being our Harvest Carnival Project Leaders this year. They came in positive, they took charge, and did a great job! I would also like to give a shout out to Becky and Adam Melott, Chelsey and Brad Warner, PM staff members, and so many more. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for all that you did to make the carnival a hit.
I am also very excited to say that Prairie Mountain’s PTO has partnered with a local home décor company, Real Deals. At each PTO meeting this year, attendees of the meeting will go into a drawing. If their name is drawn they will get to choose a Prairie Mountain staff member to receive a gift that Real Deals has donated.
Please come to our next PTO meeting on Tuesday, November 13th from 5:30-6:30 in our caforium. Reach out to other parents/guardians and come with a friend. Snacks, childcare and translators will be available.
