Immunizations: Statewide Exclusion Day 2/17/2016

immunizationsExclusion day is Wednesday, February 17, 2016 for overdue immunizations.

We have started the process of gathering immunization information so we don’t have any students excluded from attending school in February.

Parents, please provide us with any immunization updates that your students have, including month and year of chicken pox disease. Any updates can be given or faxed to the office, or to our Health Room Assistant, Valorie Gilkison. Contact Valorie if you have any questions about state required school immunizations.

School to Home Communication

wheelParents, as we approach the end of the first trimester and conferences, we want to remind you of resources available to you and your students. The Home Access Center allows Bethel parents and students to view student registration, scheduling, attendance, assignment, grade information, and more.  Students in grades 4 and 5 will be able to  view academic information that the teacher has loaded into the system; middle school students will have the most complete academic information to view.

To help students, Prairie Mountain has several activities for homework and/or study support. Please talk to your student’s homeroom teacher about support options available at your student’s grade level.

We look forward to seeing you during Parent-Teacher Conferences December 9th and 10th. Conference invitations will be sent home with students Tuesday, December 1st.

Students ready to run for Prairie Mountain!

Students ready to run for Prairie Mountain!

Thankful for you!:   November brings a multitude of reasons to be thankful. We are thankful for all our parent and community involvement at Prairie Mountain in support of our students. I get an opportunity to see many families in the morning in our hallways as students start their day, greet volunteers who help out in our classrooms, hear feedback from families about their children’s experiences, and connect with all the community organizations that work to support our students. From our local police and fire departments who visit to talk with students about safety, to our community businesses who donate prizes or supplies for annual events, to our local health organizations who conduct one-day clinics for our students, we know our community members go above and beyond to support children in our schools. We appreciate all you do for our school and our students!

Conferences are coming up December 9 and 10: Please make sure to return conference information to your child’s teacher so that we can plan a time that may work for your family. We look forward to talking with you about your child’s experiences in school.

Papa’s Pizza Fundraiser:   November 17 is a great time to visit Papa’s and help raise funds for Prairie Mountain programs.   Our PTO is coordinating a fundraiser with Papa’s, and 50% of meals purchased at Papa’s on November 17 will be donated to Prairie Mountain if customers bring the fundraising flier (attached here) in when they order.

Thanksgiving Holiday: Just a reminder that there will be No School on November 25, 26, and 27.

Important Arrival and Dismissal Reminders: We’re sending home some reminders with students about parking lot safety and transportation details. You can find the information here. Thank you for helping us ensure safe travels for everyone as they arrive and leave our school campus.

Prairie Mountain Photos:   Just a reminder that one of our Prairie Mountain educational assistants, Sharilyn Pelayo, has been capturing great Prairie Mountain moments and will be posting many photos on our Prairie Mountain website. You can find them through the “Prairie Mountain Photos” link in the upper right hand corner of our website. Thank you, Sharilyn!


El Blog de la Directora Carey Killen
¡Estamos agradecidos por ustedes!: El mes de noviembre trae una multitud de razones para estar agradecidos. Estamos agradecidos por toda la participación de los padres y la comunidad en Prairie Mountain para apoyar a nuestros estudiantes. Tengo la oportunidad de ver muchas familias en la mañana en nuestros pasillos mientras estudiantes comienzan su día, saludar a los voluntarios que ayudan en nuestros salones de clase, escuchar la opinión de las familias acerca de las experiencias de sus hijos, y comunicarme con todas las organizaciones de la comunidad que trabajan para apoyar a nuestros estudiantes. Desde nuestra policía local y los bomberos que acuden a hablar con los estudiantes acerca de la seguridad, a nuestras empresas de la comunidad que donan premios, comida, u otras cosas para eventos anuales, a nuestras organizaciones de salud locales que llevan a cabo las clínicas para nuestros estudiantes, sabemos que nuestros miembros de la comunidad se esfuerzan a apoyar a los niños en nuestras escuelas. ¡Apreciamos todo lo que hacen por nuestra escuela y nuestros estudiantes!
Las conferencias están planeadas para el 9 y 10 de diciembre: Favor de asegurarse de devolver información de las conferencias al/a la maestro/a de su hijo para que podamos planificar una cita que quepa bien con los planes de su familia. Esperamos poder hablar con usted acerca de las experiencias de su hijo/a en la escuela.
Papa’s Pizza: el 17 de noviembre es un buen momento para visitar Papa’s Pizza y ayudarnos a recaudar fondos para los programas de Prairie Mountain. Nuestro PTO (Organización de padres y maestros) está coordinando un evento para recaudar fondos, y el 50% de las comidas compradas en Papa’s el 17 de noviembre será donado a nuestra escuela si los clientes llevan el volante de recaudación de fondos (que se adjunta aqui) cuando piden.

ía de la Acción de Gracias: Quisieramos recordarles a todos de que no habrá clases el 25 de noviembre, 26 y 27.
Recordatorios Importantes sobre la llegada y salida de la escuela: Estamos enviando a casa una hoja informativa sobre estacionamiento y transporte y detalles de seguridad. Puede encontrar la información aqui. Gracias por ayudarnos a hacer posible un viaje o camino seguro para todos cuando que llegan y salen de nuestro campusl escolar.
