Students of the month for January at Prairie High School are Shelby Duman, left, and Mckenzie Candalot. Shelby is on the student council as senior class president.  She is willing to put forth the time it takes to get something done.  Also, every time I see her in the hallway, she has a smile on her face.  She is a pleasure to have in our school. Mackenzie is a very conscientious student.  She has a fun personality; yet, she always treats others respectfully.

Saturday’s Tea Party for little girls and their moms was a big hit. The little girls looked so cute in their tea party dresses and princess tiaras. Idaho County Fair Queen Sarah Baune, 1st Princess Merannda Chaffee and 2nd Princess Halee Hill took the little girls and showed them how to do the traditional wave as they paraded through the crowd. They then got in a group and sang “I’m a Little Teapot.” The girls then got their picture taken with the royalty.  Guests were served tea and a variety of treats. The little girls were fun to watch as they were given the royal treatment by our Idaho County Fair Royalty. Click on the photo for a larger view.
