This was an extremely PAWSOME year, and your PAWSOMENESS knows no bounds. Thank you for helping Prairie C.L.I.M.B. the Mountain of Success!!!  We accomplished many amazing feats due to your unwavering support. Your support means more to us than our words could ever show. Thank you for welcoming me to Prairie. I have truly enjoyed being the principal, and I look forward to continuing in this role for years to come. On behalf of the entire staff, we want to thank you for entrusting your learners to us this year.

We would like to send our best wishes to the members of the staff that have retired, resigned, or transferred to a different school in the district: Katherine Heller, Carol Greenquist, Faith King, Kelly Bratz, Kristy Maxwell, Stephanie Arnold, Annalise Tadych, Deb Velleman, Paula Congdon and Molly Ebert. We would like to welcome: Michelle Anderson, Jenny Restock, Sara Toedter, Karen Belew, and Molly Herzog.

Please encourage all of our learners to maintain the PUMA WAY!!!  In addition to that, I would strongly encourage you to help all of our learners continue to achieve high levels of excellence by reading each and every day. We are currently having conversations to discuss the possibility of having the library opened one night a week this summer. We want to thank the PTA for their generous donation to upgrade our playground for next year. The additional play areas will truly engage all of our learners. We would love to have your support for the GE Day on Wednesday, August 17th. We would greatly appreciate your help with the revitalization of Prairie.

Have a great summer, and get ready to R.O.A.R. with Prairie next year.
