Mrs. Haliski: Keeping Kids Safe in the Parking Lot

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.

Mrs. Haliski: Great Back To School Night!

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!

Sixth Grade Curriculum Night

Parents of sixth graders are invited to experience a day in the life of their students by following their daily schedule Thursday, September 22nd. Please come directly to your student’s home room class; our event will begin promptly at 6:00p.m.

Teachers in each class will explain expectations, answer questions and offer valuable tips on how you can support your child’s education. Sixth grade teachers look forward to meeting you and partnering with you this school year.

Childcare will be provided for younger students. We hope to see you there!

Jog-a-thon Thursday, September 29

Students in grades K-5 will soon be running laps hoping to raise funds for field trips or other classroom needs. This annual event is always a huge success because the students feel like they are doing their part to help generate greatly needed funding for events that add to their school year as well as enrich the classroom learning experience.

Last year our runners were congratulated by the Oregon Duck!  Watch for your favorite Prairie Mountain Eagle seeking your support; all contributions large and small are welcome!

What happens in the Library?

Prairie Mountain is fortunate to have two wonderful Libraries on site; one designed for students in lower grades and one for students in our upper grades.

Students in lower grades have the opportunity to have weekly library time which may involve hearing a selection read to them by our Elementary Media Coordinator Bethany Bothman.Students are also able to check out books of their own choice.

Our Upper Grades Library is staffed by Maureen Clark.  Maureen assists middle school students with textbook checkout or perhaps topical research.

We are thankful for our wonderful library selections that provide all students with the joy of reading,
