Prairie Elementary First Graders recently went on
a field trip to the Cottonwood Fire Station. The children had the opportunity
climb into and sit in the fire truck as Brandon Anderson does in the top
photo. They each got to try on a fireman's hat and coat as Nicole Poxleitner
does in the lower photo.. A demonstration was also given of the fire hose
and how far it can shoot up into the air.
Volunteer Lynn Danly helps her daughter Hailey Danly
and other players in drills to learn forearm passing during last weekend’s
PeeWee volleyball session. Prairie Pee Wee Volleyball has 57 players attending
in grades 2nd-6th. Players from Cottonwood, Craigmont, and Nezperce
are attending the clinic/games. Two age sessions are offered.
One for 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders from 9:00 to 10:30 am and 5th & 6th
graders attend from 10:30 to noon. This was the 2nd of 4 Saturdays
offered. Next session will be on Saturday November 19th and then the final
sessions will be held on December 3rd. All players received a t-shirt.
Players learn several volleyball skills and practice the skill in a few
drills then teams are formed and games are played. This is the 2nd
year that Pee Wee Volleyball has been offered at Prairie. Coach Danette
Moea’i stated “There is already a vast improvement in the kids’ skill level
from last year. We use larger and lighter weighted volleyballs and
lower the net for the kids to obtain the correct techniques. Even
some boys have turned out for Pee Wee Volleyball. In most states
volleyball is offered for boys in school programs, so it is good to see
the interest in boys too. Volleyball is a lifetime sport. It is a
great turnout and it is fun to watch the players building a foundation
to make them future volleyball players.” The monies made from this program
go toward the Prairie High School Volleyball Program.
