Chinese Students visited Prairie Mountain:  On Feb. 2 and 3, eleven students visited our fourth-grade classrooms from Experimental Primary School Affiliated to Beijing Fengtai Second Middle School in Beijing.  We know our students had great fun making friends with our visitors from across the globe, sharing their music across cultures, and learning about life in China.

4th Grade and 5th grade Music Performances:  Our K-5 students enjoyed lively songs about Oregon from our 4th grade students and songs in many languages sung by our 5th graders in their music performances this month.  Our K-5 music teacher Jessika Smith and all our students did a wonderful job sharing music with our students and families.

Kindergarten Pre-registration:  Families of students who will be in kindergarten next fall can come to Prairie Mountain for a registration packet or can access registration information online at the link on our website.  We’re excited to welcome the incoming Class of 2030!

PM Talent Show:  Our Prairie Mountain Talent Show is coming up February 28 at 6:30pm in our Caforium.  We’re looking forward to this annual event put on by staff volunteers.  Auditions take place Monday, Feb. 20 and Tuesday, Feb. 21 for students who turned in their permission slips last week based on the schedule posted by Jessika Smith.

Hi Prairie Mountain Families,

We are excited to share the District’s finalized plans to make up lost classroom time due to the six Snow Days and two Delayed Starts we’ve already experienced. These changes will allow Prairie Mountain students to recover meaningful instructional time without putting a big dent in family summer plans.

The new schedule is attached, and here are the changes:

  • February 13 (previously a high school no-school day) will become a school day for all district

students.

  • February 20 (Presidents Day) will become a school day for all students
  • March 3 (previously a no-school day for K-8 students) will become a school day for all students
  • Monday June 19th, and Tuesday June 20thwill be full school days for K-11 students (seniors will  

              have graduated)

  • June 20thwill now be the last day of school for students (it will be a full-day, not an early release)
  • If we have additional Snow Days this winter they may be added to the calendar after June 20th
