The Prairie High School Technology Students of America are making and selling quilt racks for a fundraiser for their trip to nationals.  I have included two pictures.  The quilt racks are $40.00 and would make a great Mother’s Day gift for that special mother on your list.  The club has about 15 racks left.  They are built and ready to go out the door.  You can purchase the quilt racks by contacting any TSA member, Jerry Richardson, or Alica Holthaus. 

Shayla Von Bargen, Abbie Uhlenkott and Kylie Tidwell are friends forever! 
“Friends Forever” is the name of the song these girls composed during bus trips to and from school.  This song has a very catchy melody and a wonderful message and will be performed by the 4th grade classes (and Kylie) at the Prairie Elementary Spring Concert.  Be sure to mark your calendars to attend the PES concert on Wednesday, May 14th in the PES gym at 12:15 p.m. to hear “Friends Forever” and all of the other songs performed by Prairie Elementary students. Shown are Shayla, left, and Abbie. Kylie was unavailable for the photo.
