Student of the month for April at Prairie High are Kodie Tidwell and Redi Uptmor. Tidwell, nominated by Della Gehring-She was invaluable with the spring showcase. She made items, organized things and did all with a smile. And once she started she completed the project. It was great. Uptmor, nominated by various staff members.  Reid is willing to step and help with various projects in and out of the building.  He showed up to assist Jake Forsmann at the monastery to help move items a few weeks ago.  He helped push wheelbarrows of concrete for the pole vault pit at the track this past week.  He just does what is asked of him without complaint.  Keep up the great work!  Photo by Jon Rehder.

Those who attended this weekend's Sleeping Beauty experienced joy, fear, awe and wonder but none could say the outstanding performances induced sleep. The fairies were magical, and Malificent was frightening. Her army of evil crows kept the crowds cowering as they hunted down Sleeping Beauty with their terrifying stomping and cawing. With dazzling swordsmanship, Prince Phillip fought his way past Malificent's henchman, and then had to battle a huge dragon that swayed menacingly above the stage. After the dragon's defeat Prince Phillip rushed to Sleeping Beauty's side where the fairies were anxiously waiting. And then . . . well, you know the rest of the story! Thank so much to Gina Lustig who adapted the play, Director Michael Rehder and to the many many others who helped put on the play. Pictured are the entire cast of Sleeping Beauty, at right are Director Michael Rehder with his sister Kayla Rehder as Malificent. Photos provided by Summit Academy.
