We had 17 students sign up for the high school blood drive on Tuesday, September 24th.  13 students were able to successfully donate and 4 were unable to donate due to various factors.  Attached is a picture of the students who were September Students of the Month for being "responsible" and taking time out of their day to do a great thing for the community.  This is part of the PBIS initiative that we began to implement district wide.  Pirates aRRRgh...Responsible, Respectful, and Ready! Pictured from left are Nicole Rehder, CiCi Chavez, Halle Klapprich, Hope Schwartz, Eve Uhlenkott, Ellea Uhlenkott, Ashton Landers, Merlyn Famiglietti, Alissa Grossman, Hayden Uhlenkott, Reid Uptmor, Pixie Jones, Matthew Seubert, Leann Lightfield, Matt Coppernoll and Zac Arnzen.  Not pictured is Sierra McWilliams.

Prairie Elementary School winners for the month of September for being Respectful, Responsible and Ready.  These are our Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) principles.  When a child receives an R3 card they have been recognized by an adult in the school for following school expectations.  His/her name is put into a drawing and 2 names per trait are drawn at our assembly held each month.  The following students are winners for September (Pictured from left): Bailey Key, Matthias Kaschmitter, Jett Lorentz, Corbin Tacke and Tony Leighton. They are rewarded with getting to eat first, chose a friend to sit with and sit wherever they want in the cafeteria. Photo by Rene’ Forsmann. Click on the photo for a larger view.

Kindergarten and First Grade students at Prairie Elementary School were recipients of Reading Buddies supplied by Idaho Forest Group.  These Reading Buddies become reading partners with each student.  There are many ways to help your child become a better reader.  One way is to read with your child at home.  Reading can consist of your child describing the pictures, helping you read some of the words, or simply listening to you read aloud.  Any practice helps your child improve his/her reading skills immensely.  Thank you to Rachel, Megan, Eric and Glenn for presenting the buddies to our students at our school assembly.
