Fridays are always special at Prairie Mountain; that’s the day students and staff wear our Prairie Mountain tee shirts, and volunteers from our amazing PTO pop hundreds of bags of popcorn for our students.
Popcorn passes for free bags of popcorn can be won in our prize cart, classrooms may earn popcorn for the entire class for perfect attendance; or students may also purchases popcorn for 25 cents per bag.
Thank you to the many parents who donate their time and make our popcorn days fun!
Families enjoyed having a taco dinner together; parents had the opportunity to meet teachers and learn more about curriculum, expectations and how to help their students hit the ground running this year.
The “Prevention Convention” is EPD’s largest community outreach event. This is a free, fun and educational event. The Eugene Police Department will provide crime prevention and safety information to people of ALL ages.

Those of you who regularly pick up kids after school know how challenging the parking lot can be. We appreciate your patience and commitment to safety. Check out this great picture of Ms. Meyer (fifth grade teacher) as she demonstrates the STOP sign. Prairie Mountain teachers rotate through supervision duties outside after school. Ms. Meyer just finished her week in the parking lot where she helped direct traffic. We are committed to a safe and orderly dismissal. Some things you can do to help include parking in a marked space, picking up your kids promptly after school, and signing up to use the carpool lane if you transport kids from more than one family.
The halls, gyms, classrooms and Creeks were buzzing with activity Thursday night as families came out for our annual K-5 Back to School night. Parents learned about academic and behavior expectations in classrooms, kids played in the gyms under the supervision of the amazing Prairie Mountain support staff and all enjoyed a delicious taco dinner family-style. Thanks to our PTO and kitchen staff for a terrific taco dinner! Check out this picture of Prairie Mountain kids enjoying their dinners. Great smiles!
