Thank you, Bethel Education Foundation

Beth Clarke reacts with joy!

Congratulations to Mrs. Gerlach (4th Grade), Mrs. Clarke (K-5 Librarian), Ms. Owens (5th Grade), Mrs. Zacharek (4th Grade), and Mrs. Young (6-8th Resource) for receiving a BEF grant. It was the highlight of my day to watch these amazing educators earn grants for their students and classrooms.  These grants will enhance teacher instruction and student engagement here on the Mountain.  Mrs. Gerlach, Zacharek, and Young plan to use their grant dollars to purchase Chromebooks for their classes. 

Kathryn Young feels very positive about the BEF

Ms. Owens plans to purchase a 3D printer and pen to engage students in content that they are learning. Mrs. Clarke plans to purchase multicultural books from around the world. Thank you to our Bethel Education Foundation for supporting Bethel teachers and students.  We are so appreciative of the work you do for our students, families and district.

Principal’s Update

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.Brown and Yellow graphic reading Real Deals on Home Decor
