Students of the month at Prairie High School are Brock Heath and Chelsea Geis. Brock has shown exemplary work in Advanced Biology class.  He has gone the extra mile to understand the college material, and has even done some additional research on his own.  He always participates in class discussions and does well in understand the labs in class. Chelsea is an extremely motivated and hard working student.  She spends extra time to do her best on whatever task she is assigned.  Chelsea is always very cheerful and polite.  She willingly volunteers for extra things and accepts her work with a smile on her face.  She is a credit to PHS!
