Students of the month for April at Prairie High School are Justin Cox and Shaney Perrin. Justin is always willing to help others in the office during 7th hour.  He has a smile on his face and it is a pleasure to go into the office when he is in there! Shaney is very hard working.  She completes the task given, generally without having to ask for help, after being given the instructions. Very polite!
