Taylor Ratcliff & Gina Seubert are pictured with their 3 story building that they built out of paper while working together in silence. It was part of a Youth For Justice assembly at Prairie Middle School. The activity was to show students about working together and protecting their communities from damage. Communities can be damaged through words (bullying), violent actions.  They learned being involved at all times is necessary, so their communities would be strong and safe. 

Officer Terry Cochran visited with the first graders in Cindy Schumacher's class.  Officer Cochran talked to the children about "Saying No to Drugs" and how to stay safe in a store, in our school, and in our town. He discussed many inportant points on how the children should handle themselves if different circumstances should occur.  The first graders would like to thank Officer Cochran for taking the time out of his busy schedule to visit their classroom.

PMS Caught Ya Winners for November are Betty Clark, Christopher Schmidt, Jerett Frei, and Clairie Whitely were the names drawn out for Caught Ya Forms for November. 

It was busy at the Kids Shopping Day at Prairie Elementary School this past Saturday.
