As a community service project NICI inmates replaced the sign at the football field that had blown down in a windstorm last spring. In the top photo is the crew that built the framework and mounted the sign with Oscar Malacara, Jr., second from right, having done the majority of the painting. See story at left.

Junior High students interested in Knowledge Bowl meet with Mrs. Riener once a week and have lunch together and practice for their upcoming Knowledge Bowl meets. Any junior high student interested in Knowledge Bowl, should check with Mrs. Riener. 

Prairie Middle School received a health and wellness grant from the Nezperce Tribal Executive Committee Local Education Program Fund. This grant provides dollars to enhance the hot lunch program at Prairie Middle School by adding fresh fruits and vegetables to the menu. One example of an enhancement is fresh tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and lettuce to the ham sandwich. Another would be watermelon served on a Friday. Another example --a chef salad offered one day a week as an option to the main entrée served on that day.In addition, physical education equipment will be added to enhance the PE programs at both the middle and high schools. 

It was quite a turnout of family and friends at Barbara Rehder’s 80th birthday celebration this past weekend. Click on the photo for a larger version.
