Meet Your Teacher/Curriculum Night: Wednesday, August 28th


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!

Queridos Estudiantes de Prairie Mountain y Familias,

¡Acompáñenos el miércoles, 28 de agosto para nuestra Noche de Conocer al Maestro/Plan de Estudios!

En los años pasados, ambos de estos eventos han sido en dos noches separadas, pero ahora se han convertido en una.

Esta será una buena tarde para conocer a los nuevos maestros, ver a antiguos y nuevos amigos, y aprender sobre cómo podemos trabajar juntos para hacer que Prairie Mountain se eleve a nuevas alturas.

Aquí es como será la tarde.

Estudiantes y Familias de estudiantes en Kinder-5to Grado:

  • Vengan a ver su nuevo salón, conocer a su maestro, y aprendan sobre el plan de estudios. Las presentaciones comenzaran inmediatamente a las 5:15 y después a las 6:00. Por favor planear en venir con su estudiante. A los estudiantes de Kínder se les pide asistir a los eventos del salón con su familia.
  • Elija una sesión para asistir: 5:15-5:45 O 6:00-6:30

A los Estudiantes y Familias de estudiantes en 6to-8vo Grado:

  • Vengan a ver sus nuevos salones, conozcan a sus maestros, aprendan sobre el plan estudios, y elijan su casillero.
  • Las presentaciones comenzaran inmediatamente a las 4:30 y otra vez a las 5:15. Los estudiantes acompañados por sus padres pueden elegir su casillero al final de la presentación. Por favor planear en asistir con su estudiante.
  • Elija una sesión para asistir: 4:30-5:00 O 5:15-5:45

Por favor asegúrense de ser puntuales a la sesión seleccionada, ya que los maestros estarán presentando información importante sobre sus salones, plan de estudios, y eventos que sucederán durante el año.

Cuidado de niños será proveído de 4:20-6:30 para los estudiantes solamente en grados 1ro, 2do, 3ro. Servicios de traducción estarán proveídos durante la tarde.

 Fiesta de Pizza de PTO: El PTO de Prairie Mountain trabaja duro cada año para recolectar dinero que va directamente a nuestros estudiantes y el personal. Por favor venga y disfrute de pizza, ensalada, y limonada. ¡Estarán ofreciendo una cena de pizza, lo cual incluye 2 pedazos de pizza, ensalada, y limonada por solamente $5 por plato! La cena se servirá de las 4:45-6:45. Y por supuesto, todavía tendremos nuestra deliciosa sandia afuera en frente de la escuela para que ustedes disfruten. 

Si alguna vez pensaron en unirse al asombroso y espectacular PTO de Prairie Mountain, o incluso solo quiso encontrar la manera de estar más involucrado, los voluntarios de PTO estarán en la escuela esta tarde para contestar cualquier pregunta que puedan tener. Nuestro PTO tiene un grupo fantástico de voluntarios, y les encantaría agregar a usted al equipo.

 ¡Muchas gracias, y espero verlos a todos!

To Our Sponsors: You Made a Positive Difference

We would like to send out a special thank you to the companies that donated snacks, gum, fresh fruit and vegetables, bottled water, and hardware to create our snack shacks. It was because of you, that we were able to make testing week a rewarding, positive, and meaningful week for our students.
Thank you to:
• Emerald Fruit and Produce
• Bigfoot Beverages
• McDonald Wholesale
• Winco Foods
• Jerry’s
• Cash and Carry
• Albertsons

With your help we were able to serve over 500 students fresh fruit and vegetables, granola bars, teddy grams, jolly ranchers, gum, and water during our 3-8th grade state testing weeks. Teachers and students were so appreciative of your amazing generosity. These snacks were a huge success because we were able to nourish our kids as they worked diligently on doing their very best on their state assessments. Kudos to these businesses, for understanding the importance of giving back to their communities. We are so thankful and appreciative of your generous spirit.

Thank you again for all that you do for our community, students and their families.
