First graders from Prairie Elementary School recently took their annual field trip to St. Mary's Hospital. The children were able to view the operating room, the lab, x-ray, the emergency room and the ambulance. St. Mary's employees did a wonderful job of showing the children around the different areas and explaining what they might see if they ever had to come to the hospital. The children were even given a "mini-cast" on their fingers. The field trip ended with a delicious cookie made by St. Mary's cooks. Teachers Cindy Schumacher and Sherry Holthaus and their students would like to thank Cheri Holthaus for arranging the tour and all of the employees for taking time out of their busy schedules to show them around. In the top photo is Mrs. Schumacherís class and in the lower photo is Mrs. Holthausí class. Each showing their finger casts.

Mrs. Rigger's class was awarded the pizza party for bringing in the most coins for hurricane relief during the month of April. Here Talyss and Dean enjoy pizza while the 3rd/4th graders from Mrs. Schu's class "tends to their every need"! Prairie Elementary should be very proud. For the 2nd year in a row, we have raised over $1000 to send to those in need!! We are already looking forward to raising money next year for another great cause.
