A huge and heartfelt thank you to the dozens and dozens of volunteers we had in our building this week. Please know that your presence made our very busy and activity-filled week possible. We truly could not have done it without you!
With the arrival of winter, we want to remind you that school closures and/or delays will be announced on local media. If you think school may be closed due to weather, check you local TV and radio stations. If a closure is not announced, then that means school is in session. Additionally, if you would like to receive text or email alerts regarding weather related school closures, a good resource to sign up for is Flash Alert.
We hope all of our students and their families have a restful winter break. We will look forward to seeing you Monday, January 5, 2015.
Seventh Grade Creative Writing and Lettering teacher, Peggy Doty, was surprised with a $250 grant awarded by the Bethel Education Foundation. Peggy intends to use the funds to purchase calligraphy pens for her class to use.
The students expressed an interest in learning calligraphy lettering, and thanks to the Bethel Education Foundation, their wishes were granted. Calligraphy will be a creative way for students to write their poetry in a beautiful and professional looking text, giving them results they can truly be proud of.
Thank you, members and generous contributors of the Bethel Education Foundation.
We were thrilled with the turnout for conferences! We all know the proven positive outcomes that happen when parents and teachers work together. Conferences are a fantastic way to share and learn with each other.
Thank you for taking the time to work with us in making this a fantastic academic year for your student. We are honored to partner with you.
We all need a positive boost from time to time, especially during the overwhelming and busy holiday season. Prairie Mountain elementary staff have been awarding students “Encouragement Cards” to inspire them to stay focused on their studies before winter break. Middle school students have had opportunities to earn “Compliment Cards” to acknowledge their efforts to go above and beyond and demonstrate leadership.
Focusing on the Prairie Mountain Lifeskills of Problem Solving, Responsibility, Integrity, Determination and Empathy promotes responsible citizenship and gives all students and staff PRIDE.
