Students of the month at Prairie High School are Jalisa Wright and Kyler Shumway. Jalisa is an outstanding student because she is responsible and has a positive attitude.  This year she made some big improvements to be a good student.  Mainly, she makes it a point to understand her work and has a better attendance record.  Her actions have also had a positive influence on those around her.  Jalisa is a good student and pleasure to have in a class. It is nice to have a student who is self-motivated like Kyler .  I can always count on Kyler for completed assignments, attentiveness, and a smile.  Although, thatís not what really makes him an outstanding student.  Kyler learns new concepts and is able to apply past ideas tying it all together.  He has a bright future with his ability and great attitude combined.

Abigail Lustig, in the commercial design class, finished a sign for Angieís Crafts and Supplies. This is a big achievement for Abbi when looking at the fact that she has not done very much painting in the past and she did a meticulous and detailed job for a big project like this. Abbi stated that she learned a lot during this time. There was a lot to painting that people donít realize until they have to do it on their own. This whole project took Abbi a total of about eight weeks. Abbi did a great job on this sign and a thank you goes out to her and all her hard work.  (Caption written by Alena Hoene of PHS)
