Attendance winners for the month of September, Bryson Higgins, Molly Schwartz. How does Prairie Middle School determine attendance winners?  Names are put into the drawing based on weekly attendance.  Each week that a student is in attendance, they get their name put in for the drawing. Once a month we draw names for prizes.

Prairie Middle School held their first attendance and pep assembly. With the help of Mrs. Sonnen and Mrs. Higgins, the junior high and peewee footballs teams as well as girls basketball team came together to show their spirit and pride.   Activities:  Taken from the show, "Minute to Win it"  students had to move an egg to half court of the gym using only a lid from a paper box. Students had to fan the egg across court. In the picture you will see the football team blind folded and the girls' basketball team covered ready to be fed chocolate pudding. Austin Sonnen and Morgan Butler were the winners. Click on the photo for a larger view.
