Prairie Mountain is proud to be one of the schools in the Bethel School District that offers ELD, or English Language Development. Our student population is comprised of students whose home language also includes Chinese, Gujarati, Russian and Spanish.
A representation of our ELD students recently made a presentation to our School Board highlighting the critical importance of their instruction.
ELD instruction not only helps students be successful in their classrooms, but in every aspect of their lives. Many of our students interpret for their parents outside in the community.
Our student body is greatly enriched through the inclusion of many cultures, backgrounds and languages.
Prairie Mountain School was acknowledged on Knight Vision at Matt Knight Arena during the recent basketball game. Students and their guests were invited to attend as a reward for their participation in the “Read with the Ducks” program offered by the University of Oregon.
Students in grades K-5 who have opted into the program have an opportunity to win free tickets to the Duck game by turning in their RAH (Read At Home) minutes. Congratulations to our winners and keep on Reading with the Ducks!
The seasonal cold and flu season has returned, but there are many things you can do to keep yourself and everyone around you healthy.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, stay at home and keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing; use the bend of your elbow if no tissue is available. And remember, of the very best ways to prevent the spread of germs is to frequently wash your hands.
If your child is absent due to illness, please phone the office to excuse the absence. When requesting missed work, we ask that you allow 24 hours for teachers to prepare materials.
