Students of the month for April at Prairie High School are Scott Bruegeman, outstanding student and Vanessa Sonnen, honor student. Scott is one of the most considerate young men at PHS. He is always polite, always helpful, and always reliable. When asked to do something he often goes the second mile and does more than was asked. Scott is one of the reasons that PHS is a great school. Vanessa works very hard to achieve her goals.  She checks and rechecks her work to make sure that the end result matches her original goals.  Her effort and determination to succeed makes her an honor student.

The Prairie Youth Choir will be presenting a free Concert and Talent Show on Monday, May 9th at 7:00 p.m. in the Prairie Elementary Gym.

Also, many of the choir members will be sharing their talents in dance and art, and there are several instrumental and vocal solos and ensembles planned as well. Come out and enjoy the show. The Prairie Youth Choir competed at the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival in Moscow and placed 7th out of 15 choirs in the Elementary Choir Division! They competed against some older auditioned choirs and did a fantastic job representing Prairie! Regina Seubert also competed, but in the Middle School Alto Solo Division and did very well in her first solo competition. She placed 4th in her division! These kids worked hard and had fun!
