Students of the month for March at Prairie High School are Ci-Ci Chavez and Blake Uptmor. Mrs. Cash nominated Chavez and stated that Ci-Ci is hardworking, kind, and responsible. She is always respectful to those around her. She cares about others and makes sure everyone feels included. She gives full effort in her schoolwork and her extracurricular activities. I appreciate her positive attitude and ever-present bright smile.  Mrs. Duclos nominated Uptmor and stated that Blake is a very good student!  He thinks deeply about the meaning of what he's learning and how it connects to other concepts.  Blake is a hard worker in class and out of class, as well as a very kind person.  Photo by Jon Rehder.
