Our first Bike and Walk to school day was a huge success! Over 100 students chose to bike or walk to school. As part of our “healthy kids” promotion, we will be having “Bike and Walk Wednesdays” every Wednesday.
A great way to avoid traffic and enjoy the morning is to walk or bike to school with your child. This is also a relaxing and enjoyable way for students to return home at the end of each school day.
Thank you for encouraging your students to have healthy bodies and work towards a healthier environment.
Second graders recently received basic fire safety education from our local Firemen. Students learned all about keeping themselves, their families, and our community safe from fire.
Firemen discussed the importance of a home escape plan and smoke alarms as well as strategies for fire prevention. After the lesson, students were invited to explore the big red fire truck, which they thoroughly enjoyed!
Petersen Barn is now offering a nine week “Spanish is Fun” class for Prairie Mountain middle school students. The class will meet on Wednesdays from 2:20 to 3:20 beginning October 12th at Prairie Mountain in Room 26.

One of the things that makes a K-8 school special are the opportunities our older students have to support our younger students. Check out this picture of Mr. Combs’ fourth grade class high-fiving younger students Friday afternoon at the K-5 jog a thon. Not only are our fourth graders great role models but they are super cheerleaders! Jennifer
We couldn’t have asked for more on Friday afternoon at the Prairie Mountain track. Great weather (love that sunshine), amazing parent volunteers, terrific staff organizing committee and most importantly, awesome Prairie Mountain kids running and running and running to raise money in our annual K-5 jog a thon. All of the money raised will go towards field trips for this 2011-2012 school year. I want to thank the many volunteers who helped make this event happen and please remember to have your student bring in their money. Jennifer
