Students of the month for December at PHS are Tabitha Sonnen, honor student, and Sam Forsmann, outstanding student. Tabitha is a very helpful and hard working student at Prairie. She is always willing to jump in and help no matter what the job may be. Tabitha excels in her academics while staying busy with athletics at the varsity level. As a junior at Prairie High School the faculty and staff looks forward to enjoying another full year with Tabitha. Sam is an excellent choice. He is President of the Band, elected to that position by his fellow students. He plays flute in the Jazz Band, as well as Pep Band. Sam often spends extra time to help with preparation for performances and frequently takes the time to talk with me about music and band issues. But Sam is more than a musician; he plays varsity basketball and excels in academics. Sam should be recognized for his many achievements.  

The newly elected Cottonwood City Council members are sworn in at the meeting Monday night. At far right is new member Bill Hill. Standing and retaking the oath of office are Shelli Schumacher and Max Nuxoll.

We just received word from the State that Haley and MaKayla have been chosen as State winners. Their artwork is being displayed on the Tar Wars Idaho 2006 calendar.
