Students of the month for February at PHS are from left, Cassie Chandler and Tony Duman, outstanding students, and Shayla Dalgliesh, honor student. Cassie does an excellent job of working with students of all ages.  Cassie is employed by the After School Program in the Center For Discovery.  She can be counted upon to take responsibility for projects and is an outstanding role model for young students.  She has the self-initiative to develop classroom presentations for Prairie Middle School students. Tony demonstrates an outstanding student through his good humor, willingness to help everyone with a smile, and his ability to communicate easily with peers and teachers. He is much appreciated in this building. His smile keeps the day bright! Shayla stays on task and gets her work in on time for me. She always tries to do her best work with her coursework. 

Casey Danly shows the certificate he received for winning the DAR essay contest. See story at left.

January attendance winners were announced at an assembly held on January 15, at Prairie Middle School. Winners: Kyle Bower, left, and Brock Heath.

The first graders and Mrs. Schumacher would like to thank Mrs. Chaffee for providing all of the materials and for helping the children make the project. 

The first graders recently learned about the Inuit (Eskimos) of the Arctic. The students in Mrs. Schumacher are shown wearing "snow goggles". They learned that this style of goggles helps from getting too much glare when hunting on the ice and snow.
