One of the groups touring the WSU Campus on Oct. 13, poses in front of the WSU cougar. At 7 a.m. on Oct. 13, 34 sophomores from Prairie High School loaded onto a bus for a trip to the WSU campus in Pullman. During a presentation given by an engineering department professor, they enjoyed working in teams to solve a civil engineering problem. The students toured the campus and ate their lunches in the WSU CUB. The final activity before boarding the bus to head back to Cottonwood was checking out Ferdinand’s, the WSU Creamery. The trip was funded by the GEAR-UP program. Photo provided by Karrie Vanator. Click on the photo for a larger view.

Prairie Middle School 6th graders, along with their teachers, Renee Eckert and Sherry Holthaus,  participated in a unique science education program, facilitated by the University of Idaho in McCall. The bus departed on October 27th and returned home on October 29th.  Students acted as a team of scientists working alongside UI faculty, graduate students, and staff from the Colleges of Natural Resources and Education. Students learned how researchers employ the scientific methods to answer questions about the world in which we live.  The program addressed Idaho State Science Education Standards in an engaging, enriching, and safe environment.  Students reported this was a great way to learn Science!  As scientists, they observed, collected and analyzed data as they hiked through the forest trails of the Ponderosa State Park. A big thanks goes to Bobbi Tidwell, Becci Gehring, Tim Dalgliesh, and Jesse Vanator, our chaperones, for taking time out of their busy schedules to attend MOSS with us.  Also, “Thank You” to our Idaho County Commissioners for funding this field trip and making this great learning experience possible. Shown above are a couple of photos from the event.

Prairie Middle School held a Science and Book Fair during Parent/Teacher Conferences November 3, 4, 2010.  Parent and students walked around the gymnasium looking at the projects and had a chance to stop and look at the books as well.  Thank you to all that attended conferences and had a chance to visit our fairs.

Some of you may remember wearing a white T-shirt and red shorts for PE at the middle school.  About 6 years ago the middle school switched to a gray T-shirt with black shorts.  We have some of the old style uniforms left over and now have them for sale.  Come purchase a T-shirt and a pair of shorts for $5.00

The PHS cheerleaders count off jumping jacks after a Prairie touchdown at Wallace. They do one for each Prairie point on the scoreboard after each touchdown. Saturday they wound up doing a total of 62.
