90 students tried out for the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of “The Frog Prince” Monday at the Prairie Elementary Gym. Here the students listen as the actors go over the rules for the tryout. Performance are set for 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Prairie High School this Friday, March 10.

The Cat in the Hat visited at the Elementary School last week. In the top photo at the Kindergarten Blue Group and in the bottom photo at Sherry Holthaus' first grade class.

Originally this was a 9-foot high snowman made by residents at the Shelter Home in North Cottonwood Saturday morning following the overnight snowfall. By Monday, when this photo was taken, warmer weather had the snowman listing to one side. 

How do first graders celebrate President's Day? By making cherry pies in honor of George Washington, of course! Cindy Schumacher's first grade students recently learned about Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and President's Day. They made their own mini cherry pies on February 22nd, which is actually George Washington's birthday. Here they wear the 3-corner hats they made and show their cherry pies. 

Laina Sonnen and Lauren Stubbers, first graders in Mrs. Schumacher's class, are all smiles as they paint the red stripes for their version of the hat they will wear on Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Just like the "Cat in the Hat" the first graders wore tall red and white striped hats to celebrate.
Roger Holthaus and Mr. Richardson built a new counter for the Industrial Technology classroom last weekend using materials donated by Roger and Alica. Roger and Alica also donated a great deal more material to be used in the cabinetmaking class. The students in the cabinetmaking and constructions classes built the parts for the assembly of the counter and shelves. Janet, Jerry and Alex painted the classroom before the counter was installed. Gordon and Marilyn Harman donated paint the to give the classroom a face lift. Mr. Richardson just received 6 new computers from a Tech Prep grant he wrote and will be building another counter on the opposite wall. Without the help of past graduates and businesses, improvements like the one above would not have been possible. Their kindness and generosity is greatly appreciated.
