Principal Message

  • On behalf of the entire faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to Prairie School!  We have a fantastic community of learners consisting of approximately 500 kindergarten through second grade students.  Prairie School is truly a special place where students engage with a rich curriculum and grow as learners and individuals.  Our dedicated team of professionals is committed to working with our families to foster the social, emotional, physical, cognitive and academic growth of the students we serve.  We strive to encourage our students to take risks and challenge themselves to reach their highest potential, while developing a love of learning and excitement for life!

      
    At Prairie School, and all successful school settings, communication and teamwork with families are essential components of education.  We endeavor to involve parents in the learning process and partner with families to promote student growth.  Teachers provide weekly newsletters, and have active email and voice mail accounts to foster communication.  A monthly update from the principal's office will come in an email blast, as well as get posted to the school web page. We also have an active parent group (our wonderful PFE) that I would encourage everyone to join.  We have monthly meetings in which we discuss various educational and social topics.  There are many activities throughout the year that will offer opportunities to strengthen our school community, so I would encourage everyone to get involved!
     
    Prairie School really is a great place to be!  I look forward to getting to know all of our families better as we work together to make sure our students have a great experience while here.  Feel free to contact your child's teacher or me should you ever have any questions!
