Each month students are chosen and recognized by the staff at Prairie High School for their outstanding achievements, characteristics, and qualities.  Congratulations to the following students for being named Student of the Month at Prairie High School: Amanda Stinson, right, is a very fine student.  She consistently asks questions for clarification, redoes work that isn’t quite correct, and strives to do her very best for every single assignment, no matter the value of the assignment. Kelsey Tidwell, left, is a very responsible student.  She completes her homework, gets extra help when needed, actively listens and learns from lectures, and does all of this with a smile.  She is a great student.
