The "We Care" group at Prairie Middle School meets monthly and looks for ways to help people. Two years ago, they raised over $700 for the Heifer organization. Last year they raised over $250 to help Skyler Badertscher with medical expenses. Their project this year is to raise money for the Tsunami victims. The group has decorated cans and put one in each of the classrooms at the middle school. Please look for the cans in downtown businesses as well. They will be collecting the money the last day of February. We appreciate your help and support in our projects. Front from left are Emily Lerandeau, Sheri Schumacher, Justin Schmidt. Back from left are  Laura Gehring, Katie Nuxoll, Brock Heath, Chelsea Geis. 

Students in Mrs. Kim Schumacher's 4th grade classroom spent the weekend baking up goodies for the "Do Something: Kids Tsunami Relief Fund" baked food sale. They (and/or parents) made cookies and cupcakes and then the students worked different shifts at the selling table. Mrs. Schumacher and students would like to thank 4th grader parents for the donations of goodies and time and everyone at Prairie Elementary that purchased!! The Sale was a HUGE success - over $100!! Pictured are Karissa Terhaar, Kade Perrin, Garrett Schmidt, and Kelsey Tidwell.

Prairie High School basketball coaches Dave Snodgrass, upper photoe, and Jerry Uhling ran youngsters through some drills at  PeeWee Basketball Saturday, Feb. 12.
