Students of the month for October at Prairie High School are DeAnna Reed, left, outstanding student and Adeline Lustig, honor student. DeAnna has put forth so much effort in classes. Whenever she has been absent from school, she has been very responsible about completing missed assignments. Adeline always has her work done. She asks about questions she doesn't understand, and she's very organized.

The Center For Discovery kids in Cottonwood along with the Kamiah afterschool program (KAP) had the opportunity to visit the “Great Pumpkin Patch” at Vern and Maryanne Riener’s on Wednesday October 19,2005.  We had 31 very eager children ready to pick out their favorite pumpkin.  Then it was off to the fire pit for roasted hot dogs and chips.  They had a great time on the rope swing, playing ball in the yard and making new friends.  Thanks to Maryanne and Vern Riener for inviting us to your “Great Pumpkin Patch” and for the warm coffee and delicious cookies.

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!!! 

Monday, all the students at P.E.S. got to observe a road safety program by the Idaho Department of Transportation.
