There was plenty of juicy watermelon and happy smiles Thursday at Prairie Mountain. Elementary families had the chance to meet and greet teachers, see classrooms, check out the shiny floors, visit the Library, connect with friends and enjoy watermelon served up by the Prairie Mountain staff. Here Mrs. Kame’enui, Prairie Mountain’s fabulous Title I reading teacher, greets a student and her family.
Prairie Mountain 7th and 8th graders crowded the hallways Wednesday night for our annual 7th/8th Grade Curriculum and Locker Night. Over 200 kids and parents came to hear about the expectations for the school year and were rewarded by getting to choose their own locker at the end of the evening. This is always a popular night with middle school kids and this year was no exception.
Prairie Mountain recently hosted the District Math Leadership meeting where teachers from all Bethel Schools convened to plan math curriculum for all grades. This will make learning math streamlined and effective across all grade levels.
Prairie Mountain teachers are ready to welcome students into classrooms and get started September 6th.
The Prairie Mountain office has been busy with families coming in to register students for the new school year. Not registered yet? Make sure you stop by between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., and register your student.
