Prairie Mountain PTO Sign-up

Hello Mountaineers,

I wanted to share a couple things with you all. 

First of all, I wanted to thank everyone for coming out to our first PTO meeting a couple weeks ago.  It meant so much to me to see all of your faces and to be able to talk to you about all of the amazing things that our PTO does for students and staff here on the Mountain.  I’m excited to move into our Prairie Mountain PTO 2.0 format.  For those that didn’t attend please take a peek at the slide show below for more information about this change.  Also during this meeting, folks who attended filled out a PTO Meeting Time/Date Survey and the results overwhelmingly showed that people would like to have 5:30-6:30pm meetings.  Survey and you shall receive!  Our meetings will now be from 5:30-6:30pm. 

We hope that you all can come to our next PTO meeting which is next Tuesday, October 9th, from 5:30-6:30pm in our caforium.  Continue reading

Popcorn Friday Rocks Prairie Mountain

Prairie Mountain’s first Popcorn Friday of year went off with a bang!  Since the beginning of the year, 17 classes earned WOW.  This means that all of their students were at school, on time, for 3 days.  Each class that earns WOW receives a free bag of popcorn for each student.  Today our amazing Popcorn Poppers popped over 500 bags for our students.  I want to say thank you to all who came in this morning to volunteer their time to pop, pop, pop for our kids.  THANK YOU PRAIRIE MOUNTAIN VOLUNTEERS!  I would also like to thank our very own Kalin Brown for delivering popcorn to the elementary classes in our building.  Kalin was equipped with a stylish Popcorn Wagon, a map, and a smile.  Way to go Kalin.  You did a great job.  Our next Popcorn Friday is October 5, 2018.  If you would like to get involved and help us pop popcorn please let your child’s teacher know and we will get you signed up.  I am so proud to be an EAGLE!  Caw, Caw
