The Prairie High School Drug Free Group has sponsored well-attended parties after our first two home football games.  Approximately 80 students showed up each week to partake in the food and fun. The students and chaperones enjoyed nights of basketball, card games, movies, and, most of all, socializing over a selection of pizza/Subway sandwiches and pop.  Officers Cochran and Rambo joined in the fun and were a welcomed presence among the students.  The Drug Free Group is more than 30 members strong this year and is looking forward to many fun and exciting activities.  Due to lack of state funds and grants, however, our budget has been greatly reduced.  We would love to make every home football game and possibly a few basketball games drug free nights, but we need some help doing so.  If anybody would be interested in sponsoring an after-game party by providing (or donating towards) the food and drinks, please contact one of the advisors, Krystal Ellis (ellis@sd242.k12.id.us) or Renee Eckert (eckert@sd242.k12.id.us) at the junior/senior high school (962-3901).  Click on the photo for a larger view.
