Laura Gehring, left, is Outstanding Student of the Month of September at Prairie High School while Jessica Gehring, right, is the Honor Student of the Month. Jessica exemplifies the "perfect student". She always has her work done on time, pays attention in class, and asks tough questions. She goes out of her way to help fellow classmates struggling with difficult concepts and does not complain when given large assignments. Jessica comes to class with a smile and always has a "Hello" in the hallway. Her work ethic and personal attributes truly make Jessica an outstanding student. Laura is an outstanding student because she puts forth great efforts in her studies. She is always prepared for class, asks questions when she has them, and always tries her best. She is conscientious and doesn't let herself fall behind in her work. As a result of this she learns to the best of her abilities and will be able to achieve her future goals. 

Ali Hoene and Kylie Tidwell are the attendance winners for the month of September at Prairie Elementary school. They are pictured here with our Principal, Mr. Deiss.   

Tony Duman is using a cut off air tool that was donated by his parents, Jack and Cara Duman. They donated the tool to the Prairie High Industrial Technology program. Due to recent cutbacks in vocational funds, donations like this are very helpful to the program. The Dumans' kindness and generosity are greatly appreciated. 

The PHS Pep Band, under the direction of Wendy Stauffer, performed during Prairieís volleyball match against Highland last Tuesday evening.
