Students of the month for September at Prairie High School are Carolyn Sonnen, honor student, and Ashley Nuxoll, outstanding student. Carolyn strives for excellence in her studies. She takes the time to create professional projects and essays, as well as, completing assignments. She is involved in a number of activities, and she still maintains an exemplary GPA. Her dedication to learning will definitely be an asset to her in being able to accomplish future goals. Ashley plays a crucial role in the publications of the "Argh News." She taught all the other students how to put the paper together from cropping photos to inserting text. Her willingness to help others has made the production of the high school paper run smoother.

Jim May, SMH Development Director, gives a check to Larry Kidd, SMH Chief Financial Officer and Debbie Miller, Volunteer EMT to help cover expenses for the new ambulance. A portion of the funds were from the Circle of Life Breakfast held last Spring..

October 24th through the 28th is Red Ribbon Week.  The Eighth Grade class is helping to promote a drug free community by creating radio spots.  Their radio spots dealt with facts about drugs and reasons to not get involved in them.  The 8th graders worked in groups of two or three to write a 30 or 60-second announcement to be aired on the radio.  All groups did an outstanding job.  Only six groups were chosen to travel to Grangeville last Thursday.  The 15 students that arrived at KORT were able to get a tour of the building, meet the radio announcers, talk on the air, and record their radio spots.  To record, the students went in a sound proof room and talked into a microphone. KORT will pick three of the six groups’ radio spots to air during Red Ribbon Week.  We will know by this Thursday who those groups are.  Students who traveled to KORT were Aleana, Kristin, Sam S., Joe, Kelsey, David, Derek, Wyatt, Amber H., Natosha, Samantha F., Justina, Casey, Kyle, and Conner.

The first graders in Mrs. Schumacher's class did "apple research" on Thursday. Each student brought in an apple and the "research" began. The children compared sizes, colors, and whether or not their apples had stems. They wrote a descriptive sentence about why they liked their apples. The children also did an experiment to see if their apple would float or not. They concluded that all apples float no matter what the size, shape or color. After that fun apple research the children had a yummy snack of...what else...but apples!!! 

Tim Dalgliesh recently volunteered in Cindy Schumacher's first grade classroom. This month first graders are learning about Bats and Spiders. Mr. Dalgliesh is shown helping the children with a project about the "Anatomy of a Bat". The children used toothpicks to show the bats bones. Raice Dalgliesh enjoyed having his dad help in the classroom.
