Dear Prairie Mountain community,
I am so thankful for the amazing people who have decided to participate in our PTO this year. I believe that all of our events have been inclusive, exciting, and fun for all students and their families. Thank you to all of you who have stepped-up to become Project Leaders, and thank you to all who have volunteered. I believe that we do our best work when we do it together and you are all the proof in the pudding. Please make plans to come to our next PTO meeting which is on Dec. 11th from 5:30-6:30. Things are more fun with friends, so please bring another parent/guardian/family member of a Prairie Mountain student with you. PTO meeting attendee names will go into the drawing for a staff appreciation gift donated by Real Deals.
Prairie Mountain Parents/guardians are invited to complete the final anonymous survey as a part of the Juntos Project that our school started last year. For each survey that is completed our school will receive $1.00. You can access the online survey at https://ceqp.uoregon.edu/ . Click on the photo of your student’s school, and then choose “Parent” survey. The survey opens automatically. There is a drop-down arrow for choosing either English or Spanish. Alternatively, paper copies are available at the front office at your child’s school; you can return your completed survey at the front office as well. All surveys will be available from October 29th until November 30th, 2018.

I would just like to take a bit of time to thank our amazing PTO for their remarkable work on our Harvest Carnival. This year’s carnival was filled with wonderful moments of students and their families playing games and making memories together. We would like to send out a special thank you to Nick Johnson and Alysia Jessee for their amazing work in being our Harvest Carnival Project Leaders this year. They came in positive, they took charge, and did a great job! I would also like to give a shout out to Becky and Adam Melott, Chelsey and Brad Warner, PM staff members, and so many more. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for all that you did to make the carnival a hit.
I am also very excited to say that Prairie Mountain’s PTO has partnered with a local home décor company, Real Deals. At each PTO meeting this year, attendees of the meeting will go into a drawing. If their name is drawn they will get to choose a Prairie Mountain staff member to receive a gift that Real Deals has donated.
Please come to our next PTO meeting on Tuesday, November 13th from 5:30-6:30 in our caforium. Reach out to other parents/guardians and come with a friend. Snacks, childcare and translators will be available.
Schedules for School Conferences will be sent home with students next week. Please watch for this important information. We know that when the family and the school work together, students succeed. We look forward to sharing information with you as well as receiving your insights. Your student’s homeroom teacher will send you a conference invitation November 27th confirming the date and time for your conference. Conferences are Wednesday, December 5th and Thursday December 6th.
As our students continue to make gains each day in the classroom, here is a look at last school year’s State School Report Card. We use the information from the report card each year to make program adjustments and plan additional supports for students.
