Prairie Mountain Families,
I would just like to thank all of our families who came out for our December PTO meeting this week. It is always so great to see you and to get together to talk about the amazing things we have going on for our students. If you have not yet come to one of our PTO meetings, we would encourage you to come. I promise our meetings are fun, student focused, and informative. We provide yummy snacks, childcare, and translation services. Thank you again for all that you do for Prairie Mountain. We can’t do it without you.
This is one of my favorite weeks of the entire school year because this is conference week! I love connecting with families, and I hope to see each and every one of you here for conferences this year. We believe that we do our best work when we do it together.
If you have not yet scheduled your conference, there is still time. Please contact your student’s homeroom teacher to reserve your spot right away.
Conference times are:
Wednesday December 4th: 3:00-8:00
Thursday, December 5th: 12:00-7:30
When you are here for conferences, please stop by our Book Fair in the elementary library. This year’s theme is Arctic Adventure: Snow Much to Read! Catchy isn’t it? This is a wonderful opportunity for you to support our school library as well as encourage your students to read, read, read. Did you know that the total minutes a student reads each week has a powerful impact on their overall success in school? It’s a fact! If your student is not yet a reader, read to them at every opportunity to instill in them a love of reading. Time spent with books and reading is always time very well spent.
Our Book Fair will be open in the elementary library beginning Tuesday, December 3rd through Thursday, December 5th.
