Hello Prairie Pumas!


The 2017-18 school year begins on August 21st, and we are looking forward to a great year with all our students and their families! 


There will be a few changes you may notice as we kick off the year, so please take a look at the following list so you can see what they are:


               *Our school day is 5 minutes longer this year.  TK/Kinder students are released at 2:15.  1st through 3rd grade students are released at 2:25, and 4th through 6th grade students are released at 2:55.


               *The layout of our parking lot has changed.  We now have a third lane for dropoff and pickup.  In addition, we will have a staff member who manages our parking lot during these busy times.


               *We have a new Language Arts program.  You will see students in Kindergarten through third grade using the Wonders/Maravillas program, and students in 4th through 6th grade using the Benchmark program.


All of these changes will build on the successes we have had with you each year as well as making our instructional program stronger and our school safer.  We look forward to making the most out of all these changes.


In addition, we will be bringing back many things you recognize from previous years and that you asked us to keep during our parent input meetings last year.


              *We will continue to provide learning field trips that support our instructional program.  We will be able to do this in collaboration with the Prairie PTA.


              *We will continue to provide after-school intervention as well as enrichment classes.  These were things that all our parents requested during our parent input meetings.


              *We will continue to provide opportunities for parents to learn and grow as advocates for their children’s education through programs such as PIQE and Parent University.


These are just a few of the things we are excited about for the upcoming year, but by far the thing we are most looking forward to is seeing our students and their families again.  We are proud to serve the families in our Prairie community, and this year promises to be another year of growth and success.  Thank you in advance for all your help and support.
